U-5 | 55mm Cap


This revolutionary cap was designed to accommodate virtually any cooler probe used in the bottle water market. The U-5 cap avoids breaking probes; and allows for a wide variety of probe specifications. The cap incorporates a foam flap that is punctured by the probe upon insertion. There is no inner cap; so “floaters” are eliminated. Douglas Hidding, Blackhawk’s CEO, says: “While not designed to replace our world-famous SafeGard cap’s completely closed system’s advantages; the U-5 solves issues with non-standard probes at a reduced per unit cost to our customers.”

  • Our Patented Kleen Peel insures a safe and clean entry to the cooler.
  • Will run on all standard capping/de-capping equipment.
  • There is no inner cap; so “floaters” are eliminated.
  • Exclusively manufactured as a “Plus” cap.
  • U-5 maintains a seal around the probe area to prevent pin-hole bottle leaker issues
  • The U-5 may be used in combination with Blackhawk’s patented “Fluted Probe.” The Fluted Probe is designed to completely evacuate water from the package.
