Title: CHILD RESISTANT CAP
Abstract:
A child resistant cap having an inner cap with ramped lugs and an outer cap with locking lugs, wherein the lower lugs have a generally rectangular shape. The outer cap has at least one flexible tab configured such that the flexible tab causes the outer cap to rest in a relaxed configuration unless downward force is applied by a user. In the relaxed configuration, the ramped shape of the upper lugs allow the flexible tabs of the outer cap to engage with the lugs only when the cap is rotated in a closing direction. When downward force is applied, the lugs of the inner cap engage the flexible tabs when the cap is rotated in the opening direction. The flexible tabs engage the rectangular shape of the inner cap's top lugs in the closing direction whether downward force is applied to the outer cap or not.
