Abstract (en)

The plastic cap for the mouth (30) of a bottle has a top (2) and a skirt (4) which fits over the outside of the mouth. A sealing section fits inside the mouth. This has a V-shaped cross-section with the longer, inner arm (6) of the V fitting against the edge of a sealing ridge (32) inside the bottle while the shorter, outer arm (7) presses against the underside of the ridge. A line of weakness (8) is positioned between the two arms. An Independent claim is included for a cap as described above in which the inner arm of the V can be pivoted from an initial position to a final sealing position using a manipulating section.
