A Vee, or sometimes called a Lip or Spur, is similar to a Droop only sharper, smaller and is pointed. It doesn’t always extend below the double seam like a Droop does and may appear anywhere around the seam. Heavy Vees can be visually seen or felt with your fingers around the bottom edge of the seam width. In severe cases metal in the cover hook will actually fold back over itself. More commonly called a Pleat.
