Opening a milk container on Shabbat


Regarding containers as are commonly used for milk, which have spouts that are glued closed, so that one needs to separate them and draw out a spout which had been folded inward: One may not open these on Shabbat, for that is a form of completing construction of the container, making it usable.

Some do point out that the spout was already open at one point, before it was glued shut, but this is irrelevant; the gluing erased that original opening.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:78)

Have a great day,
