Made a little mistake

I tried to open an air-tite capsule supplied by SovereignSteve with a knife , I carefully pried it open until I heard a creaking sound, and proceeded to open with my fingers. I seemed to have made a small dent int the plastic on the rim. Will this seriously affect the seal??

The trick is to prise open one area slightly and then move all he way around the circumference prising open slightly, once you get the the beginning you go around again prising open a bit more, that way it all happens relatively evenly and you won't break the capsule.

When you next have it in hand, put down the knife! :lol:

C'mon lad, you're a physicist. You have it in hand, you should be able to suss out whether it will be airtite or not!;)

Haha I'm not good at these things!   I have no experience with the AirTites where the seal actually is located. I'm guessing it where the face of the lid meet the lip of a lower part, that was why I was worried as if there is a tiny gap then the air couple maybe deep through ;)

Don't overthink things. The seal is no more exciting than a tight interference fit between the rims of each half.

I wouldn't worry too much about a perfect ait-tight seal though; the early perth caps had a couple of gaps round the edges to facilitate opening using your finger nails. They did OK.
