My dad's really strong; when he closes something like a jar or a tap you can't get it open easy. My friend was trying to get a jar open but he couldn't. I cracked a joke then by saying, "I think my dad did it." It came to me what's a good word in English to describe turn and close.
My dad [turns and closes] jars and taps really hard. You can't get them open easy.
Is there a word to describe this? If not, what's a natural and fluent way to say this?
