Luer Lock Caps for Syringes and Squeeze bottles

Posted by Matt the CML Supply Dispensing Guy on

OK, so this is not the most exciting subject, but one we need to address. A common question (More common than you would think)...

Syringe With Cap

Q: I Need to store and ship a plastic syringe full of liquid or oil. How will I keep it from leaking or spilling?

A: Use a Luer-Lok Syringe cap! Luer-Lok (Aka Luer-Lock) caps are designed to fit any standard syringe or squeeze bottle that utilizes the standard Luer Taper fitting.

Q: What's a Luer Taper?

A: (From WikiPedia) The Luer taper is a standardized system of small-scale fluid fittings used for making leak-free connections between a male-taper fitting and its mating female part on medical and laboratory instruments.

Q: What's a Luer-Lok Fitting?

A: (From WikiPedia) There are two varieties of Luer taper connections: locking and slipping. "Luer-Lok" and "Luer-slip" are registered trademarks of Becton Dickinson. "Luer-Lok" style connectors are often generically referred to as "Luer lock", and "Luer-slip" style connectors may be generically referred to as "slip tip". Luer lock fittings are securely joined by means of a tabbed (or threaded) hub on the female fitting which screws into threads in a sleeve on the male fitting.

Slip tip (Luer-slip) fittings simply conform to Luer taper dimensions and are pressed together and held by friction (they have no threads).

A Luer Lok Cap will fit any standard Luer-Lok or Luer-slip syringe or bottle. Check out our options for Luer-Lok caps Luer-Lok Syringe Caps

A Luer Lok Blunt Dispensing Needle will fit any standard Luer-Lok or Luer-slip syringe or bottle. Check out our options for Luer-Lok needles here

Almost Buffalo-Style Chicken Wings

So I've been making chicken wings for almost 20 years. Since 1988. I was taught to make a Buffalo-style sauce from Franks Red-Hot sauce, white and black pepper, garlic and onion powder, mixed in melted margarine. Not bad, and it was a hit with the locals and sold well at the restaurant I worked at. There [...]
