|20150238746||FRANGIBLE CONNECTOR CLOSURE FOR TUBULAR CONNECTOR - A frangible connector closure is provided for connection to a medication administration tube, and includes a tubular body portion having an open end configured for being connected to a supply of medication, and an opposite closed end. An elongate, rigid frangible member is disposed at the closed end and closes the end from fluid flow. The frangible member has a closure end and an opposite free end, and a longitudinal axis. In addition, the frangible member extends in an axial direction and has a member transverse dimension. The free end forms a finger portion extending in the axial direction and has a transverse dimension less than the member transverse dimension. The closure end of the frangible member is readily separable from the body portion by manual manipulation relative to the body portion when the frangible member is disposed inside the tube, for user-activated opening of the connector.||08-27-2015|
