Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0498954A1] The present invention relates to a closure cap for a plastic closure having a screw cap (2), a strap (4) for lifting and a retaining ring (5), the screw cap (2), strap (4) and retaining ring (5) being connected together in one piece and at least partially by tabs (8) which can be torn by hand. In order to design such a closure cap so that handling can be more easily understood and managed by the user, it being possible additionally to manufacture the sealing cap simply with the greatest possible material saving, it is proposed according to the invention that the projection of the strap (4) into the plane of the upper edge of the retaining ring (5) does not overlap with this upper edge of the retaining ring and that the upper edge of the retaining ring (5) has a discontinuity for a grip tab (7) of the strap, which grip tab faces outwards in a radial direction. <IMAGE>
