English translation:push-on cap
Explanation:
Seems to me it's really just a cap, but push-on cap should do it if you want to be more specific.

click-on cap, or air-tight cap


Explanation:
Generally, the product descriptions I've read don't mention the cap. Here was an exception:
"Attention to detail and distinctive accents are reflected in a gentle beveled cap, and double rings in 23 carat gold or chrome. The fountain pen features a steel nib plated in either chrome or gold to match the appointments. The fountain pen and roller have an **air-tight "click-on" cap** to prevent drying. The ball pen and pencil feature a twist action mechanism for easy, smooth operation."
