Child proof caps, vent

I just find child proof caps insane - starting w the name itself "child proof". I think they should be named "intentionally made difficult to open for everyone as a control to protect only the children of completely irresponsible and useless parents and to protect companies from lawsuits from said parents".

Child proof caps just go along w the whole "ideology" that no one is responsible for their own actions - it is always someone else's fault and someone else should have to protect us all from the completely irresponsible...b/c they are not to blame.

Done. Happy New Year.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Easiest way to open them - hand them to the nearest child, lol.

Macpack has it right!

Some years ago my 2 year old nephew was staying with me. he managed to climb up onto the draining board in the tackroom and get the 'childproof' lid off a tin of paint stripper.
He managed to get some in his eyes. First thing I did was to rush him to the hosepipe hold him between my legs upside down and wash his eyes out. Rushed him the doctors and he was passed as fine. I am sure he got it on his fingers and rubbed his eye with it rather than actually get some in his eye direct.

Although I have no children of my own I always seem to have many around me and experience tells me that nothing is childproof!

I do so agree that people today do not like to take responsibility for their own actions.

I always requested easy-open lids, but didn''t always check to see if that's what I got, so had to use tools or husband after getting home w/it. Forgot to request in new state-they never ask, even though we're seniors here. I hate those caps! We both have arthritis in our hands so it's a struggle.

I watched a program how they test "child resistant" caps. They put a bunch of little kids in a room & gave them containers with these caps & told them to get the candy out. A few did, but the good majority did not. Hence the term child resistant, should not be called child proof! Give my toddler granddaughter one for a few minutes and she will figure it out.

I had to laugh, a while back there was a news story about people's kids eating those laundry packs called Tide Pods.....they said because it looked like candy the kids would eat it.......HEEEEEELLLLLLOOOOOO - um don't we as parents place any chemicals like laundry soap and bleach and such in a locked cupboard or on a high shelf.....

So instead of labeling these parents and a bunch of ignoramus's, the media goes after the company who makes the let's see them put a child proof cap on laundry soap, dish detergent, shampoo.......geez.....

No one is responsible anymore.......

watch the movie Idiocracy,,
maybe as a society it's counter productive to enable the dumbest to mature and breed.
