The ‘Locking Ring’ is a safety device, which secures 125mm Fingerguards, 125mm Plain Guards & 125mm Cyto Guards into the lids of sharps containers & cytotoxic containers.
125mm Fingerguards, 125mm Plain Guards & 125mm Cyto Guards are supplied coupled with a Locking Ring (colour white). To fit the Fingerguard, Plain Guard or Cytot Guard to the respective lid, firstly unscrew the Locking Ring from the Guard. Next, insert the particular Guard into the 125mm circular opening in the lid of the sharps or cytotoxic container (as appropriate). Lastly, screw the Locking Ring onto the thread of the Guard. The Guard is now securely attached to the lid of the sharps or cytotoxic container. The lid can now be click-fitted to the base of the sharps or cytotoxic container; making the sharps or cytotoxic container ready to use.
