Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9623704A1] A stopper for bottles of the tamper-proof and non-refillable type which includes an overtop (A), a screwtop (B) of the tamper-proof type, a pourer (C), a valve (D), a valve seat or gasket (E) and a cylindrical tube (F) characterized in that the lower part of the screwtop has a ring (20) with a series of angled teeth (19) that allow it to be turned when being screwed on and prevent it from being turned when being unscrewed. The ring (20) is joined to the body of the top by means of a series of horizontal ribs or bridges which break when the ring is unable to turn when the top is unscrewed for the first time. This ring (20) has two vertical cuts with a separation of 180 degrees that cause the ring to separate into two pieces when the horizontal ribs or bridges are broken. The cylindrical body of the top has a smaller diameter than the ring and is designed in such a way that it can receive an overtop having the same diameter as the ring.
