• Visual confirmation that content is sealed and safe
• Can be used on any types of screw caps

• material that needs to be kept safe
Safe Cap is a technology that can be built into any types of screw caps and give a visual indication (tamper alert) if the bottle, carton or jar have been opened after it was sealed. This can be used for beverages or content that must be kept safe (evidence, dangerous material, strong medicine etc).

A small hole in the top of the cap will show a plastic plate below that have two colours. The colour that is visible will change while opening the cap for the first time. Closing the cap will not return the plate in original position. It is not possible to hide that the seal has been broken. Please check images for alternative versions covered by the patent.

The inventor has been in contact with several manufacturers of beverages, cartons and other related products. He has received a lot of positive feedback so there are already some that have shown interest in buying the patent. Patent buyer will receive contact information if further negotiation with other potential partners is of interest.
There is no risk that the cap will leak.


The solution has several benefits and can be used in a lot of different areas:
• Consumers can easily confirm that the product they buy not have been tampered with (food or beverages)
• Prevents attempts to tamper with or steal content
• Easy for consumers to check if cartons have been opened in the refrigerator before they go shopping
• Can be used customized for tubes etc. to seal of drug tests, evidence or harmful materials
• It is possible to visually check many bottles during production to verify that the content is sealed. This can be done manually or through automated solutions
• Can easily be used on any screw cap (soda bottles, jam jars, medicine bottles etc).

Marketing potential
Safe Cap is not just a practical solution. It gives products a great benefit that will appeal to a lot of consumers. Manufacturers of beverages can easily use it as part of their marketing strategy as a benefit their competitor are missing. Information to teach consumer about the cap can be placed around (shelves, glass door etc) or on the products.

Use in other areas
The solution can easily be customized for any type of screw caps and be a practical safety mechanism in cases where there are strict regulations for storage of the content.
Examples are:
• Drug tests, biological samples or other evidence
• Storage of biological or chemical materials which is harmful
• Strong medication
• Caps and container with unique ID can be used to make sure that the original cap is still in place.
