API Test Kit....
I can't get past the child-locks on the bottles. xD I have to wait until my mum gets home.:lol:

I just put a nice gauge in my thumb trying to get bottle open. Not cool. >_>

Any secrets to getting the buggars open? My cousins are here and were looking forward to seeing the water being tested. :oops:

How old are you, have to make sure you are old enough to use first. lol.

Haha, 14 - 15 in October. I'm plenty capable of using it, I just can't get past the dang child lock. lol

lol, I had trouble with this too and you know how old I am :lol:
Took me a while to figure it out, but you just gotta take the bottle in your right hand, use sort of the side of your thumb on the red tab, press down and turn the lid with your left hand at the same time and you should get it open :-)

Ok, don't drink it!

Put your thumb on the red rectangle area and push down.
You want to unscrew the cap, while keeping the red ring stationary.

Thanks, Dragon and Twistersmom! :lol:
I got it!! Just as my mum is on her way home to help.
Haha, false alarm, everyone.

I won't drink it.(;

lol, good, I know how tempting it can be to drink the pretty colored liquid ;-)

This made me smile. Thought I was the only one who couldn't open the child-proof bottle at first.
