¿Cómo se llama en español la cosita encima de la lata de refresco que se usa para abrir la lata?
Wordrefernce.com says "abrelatas" means can opener as well as "pop top". That answer was posted by a native speaker from Mexico. From the posts on that thread, I am confident that this is what you are looking for. At least, that's apparently how it is said in Mexico!
Are you referring to the "tapón de rosca"? (the twist-off cap)
I'm not even sure what it is called in English. Tab?
Would it be 'la ficha de metal'?
I used Google translator for the Wiki page How to Drink a Soda
Never had the need to name those things so I wasn't sure about the Spanish name for those little metal 'rings' , but I looked it up:
"Anillas de lata" or "anillas de lata de refresco, gaseosa, cerveza, etc." if you want to be more specific
Now, what do you call them in English?
