How to Open Vape Juice Bottles
Whether you’ve just bought your first vape juice or are a seasoned vaper having trouble with a tricky bottle - this guide will take you through how to open vape juice bottles.
If your vape juice bottle won’t open, try the step-by-step process below first:
- Hold the bottle of e-liquid with one hand, and use your other hand to push down on the lid.
- While pushing the lid down, turn it counterclockwise.
- Continue to turn the lid until you have unscrewed it from the bottle.
When you want to close the bottle back up, simply reverse the steps above. Place the lid back onto the bottle, push down and turn clockwise. Once you’ve closed the bottle, try to open it without pushing down on the lid to check that it’s secure.
Following these steps should help you unscrew the lid from your vape juice bottle. If this hasn’t worked, read on to find out why it might not be opening, and ways to resolve the issue.
Can’t Open Vape Juice Bottle - Why Won’t It Open?
Vape juice bottles have a child lock feature, which is why you typically have to press down on the lid to open it. The UK government requires all products that contain nicotine to have child-resistant packaging - this is why vape juice bottles have a child lock on them.1
To follow government regulations, nicotine-containing products also have to be tamper-proof.1 This is a safety measure helping to ensure that the product has not been compromised before use. If you notice that the breakable seal is broken before you first open the bottle, don’t use the product. Contact the retailer you purchased it from to let them know.
How to Open Vape Juice Bottle When Stuck
Sometimes, you can do everything right and still find that the vape juice bottle won’t open. If this is the case, you might be pushing too hard on the lid. Try easing up the pressure when you’re pushing down and see if this works.
Another reason your vape juice bottle won’t open is that the security seals aren’t breaking as designed. If this is the case, try using a thin, blunt object (such as a ballpoint pen) to press on the security seals and snap them. Once you’ve snapped these security seals, try using the step-by-step process above, which should hopefully open the bottle.
If none of these methods are working, try reading the user manual that comes with the vape juice for further guidance.
