Cap Neck Finish Guide

45mm caps and closures are designed to fit bottles, jars and containers with a 45-400 thread finish.

Caps and closures are measured using two numbers in the format of 45-400 or 45/400: the first number is the distance in millimeters from outer thread to outer thread when looking at the top of the container; the second is a reference to the design of the threads themselves. Review the image to the right in order to understand thread design, to assist you in selecting the correct cap for your bottle or container. Carefully review your container's threads before selecting a cap even if you know the first measurement; not all 45mm caps will fit a 45mm opening, due to the differences in thread types between manufacturers.
