New applications show resiliency of child-safe package design

When Locked4Kids introduced its child-resistant package in 2014, the company initially and logically targeted the pharmaceutical market. But pharmaceuticals aren’t the only product category in need of child-resistant packaging. At interpack 2017, Locked4Kids showed how resilient this packaging concept is for other applications, such as for batteries and detergent pods.

In the video above, director of business development Wim-Henk Stoppkotte demonstrates how useful the package is for batteries for the consumer market.

He also showed another version of the package, specific to detergent pods, which have been in the news in recent years because of the rising problem of children eating the colorful pods and getting poisoned.
