Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1695918A1] A lid structure comprising a metal lid in the form of a disc (20) and a plastics ring (1). A lug (6) on the ring is snap-fitted around the exposed edge (25) of the lid. The lid structure can be fitted onto a filled container by application of a downward force until a lower profile (7) on the ring is forced around a curl or other feature on the top edge of the container. Outward expansion of the lid structure provides further retention on the container. The plastics ring of the lid structure has one or more weakened regions which can be torn to release the lid structure from the container without the need for any tool.
