The One-Handed Needle Recapping Method

(Click on a picture to see a larger image.)

Step 1: Place the cap on a flat surface like the table or counter.

 

 

 

Step 2.  Holding the syringe with the needle attached in one hand, slip the needle into the cap without using the other hand.  (Hint: some folks put a piece of double sided tape on a corner of the counter to help keep the cap from sliding.  Change the tape regularly for sanitation.)

 

Step 3.  Now you may use both hands to "seat" the cap onto the needle firmly.
