Patent information

Solution A: This is the main product of the patent. A hole in the top layer of the cap will show a plate that contains two colours (one for sealed and one for opened). There is no limitations in how the hole can be shaped or what colour that is used.
The mechanism in the cap makes sure that shutting the cap still will reveal that the seal have been broken.
It is possible to add dots in the material for peoples that are visually impaired.
Solution B: This solution needs less material to be created. It has an arrow at the bottom. The arrow will move while opening the cap and point at a spot that indicates that it has been opened. It is not possible to move the arrow back without breaking it.
This also works well for visually impaired.
