Aluminum Lug Jar Lid

Consumer Convenience Technologies offers an aluminum lug version of its EEASY Lid that allows consumers to vent a jar by pressing a button on the lid, which opens a tiny slit that breaks the seal. Lids are available in sizes 58-mm to 82-mm.

The EEASY Lid is now available in both lug and continuous thread (CT) versions and both are made of aluminum.

CCT is producing the aluminum lug EEASY Lids at its new 12,000 sq ft, state-of-the-art technology center at the company’s headquarters in Dayton, Ohio. The company spent more than seven years of research and development on the aluminum lug, and another six months working with manufacturers to design and build the custom machinery for production. CCT has the capability to produce roughly 800 aluminum lug EEASY Lids per min – more than 250 million annually.

“The closure industry relies on two types of lids: CT lids and lug lids. With 80% of the industry using lug lids, we knew there had to be room for innovation,” said CCT Managing Partner, James Bach. “While the EEASY Lid was a game-changer for the jar lid industry as a whole, it is now transforming how we look at lug lids as it provides the industry’s first aluminum solution. We’re seeing tremendous interest in the CT version of the EEASY Lid and expect there to be even more interest in the new aluminum lug version.”
