German term or phrase:Nockendeckel
Es geht um die Gasdurchlässigkeit von Verschlüssen:
"Gängige Verschließmittel für Flaschen sind Kronkorken (Börderverschlüsse), Aluminiumanrollbügel und Kunststoffschraubverschüsse. Darüber hinaus gibt es z.B. für Milchflaschen noch Nockendeckel, Korken für Weinflaschen und für Bierflaschen vermehrt wieder Bügelverschlüsse.
I've asked this before and just got "cam" as an answer, even with some colleague agreeing. Nockendeckel has nothing to do with a cam, it is an aluminium cover (in red or blue depending whether on full-fat or skimmed milk bottles) with two small "Nocken" - indentations on either side.
Explanation: Our milk containers in WV tend to have twist/screw lids, as Klaus suggests. Lately some coffee creamer containers have come with snap lids (hinged at one end with a snap closure at the other). Does that help? Tom
(Google was no help at all, only referred to motorbikes and the like).
All the best, Tom

Explanation: It sounds like the covers I find on tubs of quark, which seem to be metal, are light, and are thus probably aluminium. They have a tab on them which I use to tear them off (there is a plastic cover as well for keeping the contents fresh).
I don´t know what they are called ineither language, but if you tear your cover off rather than twisting, then you could reasonable call it a "tear-off cap".
I just realised through, that if it doesnt have a tab, then it is perhaps like the caps we got on milk bottles in England in the 60´s, which you press with a thumb to release them from the edges, and which birds used to fluently peck through, in the days when milk was delivered to stand outside your door for them. I think we called them simply "milk-bottle tops", because we didn´t know any other kind. We used to collect them.
