New spray bottle is child-resistant

Spray bottle trigger

Researchers at Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s The Research Institute, in partnership with Ohio State University, have created a prototype spray bottle for household cleaning products that they say is child-resistant.

Its two-stage trigger mechanism will discourage young children from using these spray bottles, mainly because they lack the developed ability to use them in the sequential order necessary. Also, young children’s hand size and strength simply aren’t capable of activating this. The trigger mechanism will return to a locked state after each use.

This should be welcome news for concerned parents. Hopefully the research team will be able to locate funding partners and get this patent-pending, safer spray bottle out to the consumer market very soon.
