Cap Neck Finish Guide
These 83mm caps and closures are designed specifically to fit plastic and glass bottles and jars with a 83-400 thread finish. (Search for an alternate size called 83B if you need a closure for a Nalgene® or Foxx® brand container.)
Caps and closures are measured using two numbers in the format of 83-400 or 83/400: 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 83mm caps will fit a 83mm opening, due to the differences in thread types between manufacturers.
