It is formed from the curling of the lid’s during the formation of the double seam.  If the cover hook is incorrect – this can lead to bad seams, bad overlap and ultimately a serious defect. Cover hook can be measured indirectly after a teardown procedure, or directly through a seam inspection system SEAMetal & SEAMscan by cutting or sectioning of the seam with a twin blade saw (or “bread saw”).
