"Certain spray containers, such as automotive lubricants, are packaged with a tube that is intended to be inserted into the nozzle to confine the application of the product. Without the tube, the spray is a mist and the product qualifies for the exemption of paragraph 40(2)(a). However, with the tube inserted, the product is released as a stream and, if the user leaves the tube in the nozzle, the contents are readily available to a child. In order to maintain the exception of paragraph 40(2)(a), the container must be designed so that the tube can stored when the lid is closed. In addition, the label should include instructions to remove the tube from the nozzle when storing. For example, the following instructions could be used:
+
 
+
'''THIS CONTAINER IS NOT CHILD-RESISTANT WHEN THE TUBE IS USED. REMOVE AND STORE TUBE IN THE HOLDER PROVIDED.'''
+
 
+
'''AVEC LE TUBE, LE CONTENANT N'EST PLUS UN CONTENANT PROTÈGE-ENFANTS. RETIRER LE TUBE ET LE PLACER DANS LE SUPPORT FOURNI.'''
