Joints of this type are usually made of a
stituted by a cup 1, the bottom of which is convex as
shown in the ?gure and which is limited by a cylindrical
wall 2. In the concave portion of the cup are set four
spurs 3 which are at a slightly oblique angle with respect
the axes of symmetry of the cup. In addition to the
advantage of being crushed at the moment of screwing

such as that shown by the reference 3'. Similarly, the
moulded plastic material, such as polyethylene. It has
been observed, however, that such joints have the dis
pletely stopped.
The present invention has for its object to provide a
remedy for these drawbacks and, with this purpose in
view, is directed to a joint of the type mentioned above,
which is characterized in that said joint is provided with
means intended to restore this latter to its initial shape
after having been ?attened.
It will be understood that such means have the result
that the sealing remains hermetic even if-as is frequent
ly the case-—-the capsule moves out of its position of total
closure or even if the stopping of the bottle has not been
completely e?ected.
spurs 4 are elastically compressed against the cylindrical
wall of the capsule.
It will be understood that, if a
slight unscrewing of the capsule takes place, or if the
capsule is subsequently screwed down to an incomplete
extent, the spurs 3 and 4, by moving back to their original
position, tend to restore to the joint its original convex
shape, with the result that the said joint thus provides a
hermetic seal under all circumstances.
In FIG. 4, there can be seen a capsule 5 which is
40 identical to the previous types, and in which there is ?tted
a joint 9 having the same shape as the joint 1, but on
the concave wall of which is moulded a helicoidal spring
