New coke bottle caps

Postby OutToWinPAHC » Fri Mar 07, 2008 4:48 pm

Yeah so after forever the changed the caps. They feel a bit different, but they are hard to get back on... Why must we change things that work just fine.

Rant over

User error? I don't find it any more of an issue to remove, or put back on. Don't want to offend anybody........... just my .02 cents.

To be fair, the old designs sucked if you have even the slightest bit of moisture on your hands.

Have you tried the old trick of putting the cap on firmly and rotating counter-clockwise until the threads lock evenly?

last time i checked, counter clockwise is unscrewing something. my folks taught me when i was young- lefty loosey, righty to tighten something up.......they were never good at rhyming.

Yeah. That's what I mean. You unscrew it and it falls onto the threads evenly, then tighten it...
