Is called stop to the limit , whether physical or abstract, of something. The concept, from this basic definition, can be used in various contexts and with different nuances according to the occasion.

For example: “The theater is full! No more people come in ”, "I think that during this tournament, the team gave up their possibilities", "I put a plastic bumper on the tip of the table to prevent children from getting hurt when they play".

The idea butt, in this way, can be linked to the capacity . When it is said that a space or an enclosure is full, reference is being made that they are no longer able to receive more people or more objects. A box full of books to the top, to cite a possibility, cannot accommodate more works: otherwise, its capacity would overflow.

In the same way, sometimes, it is used to refer to the condition or situation in which a person is. Thus, in particular when it is said that an athlete is at full throttle is that he is in a good moment, that he is in great physical condition, that he is motivated and that he is eager to do things well in order to achieve the best results .

An example of that meaning can be the following: "Leo Messi is in full swing after having carried out a complex and thorough rehabilitation after his injury."

In the world of cinema we find different productions that do not hesitate to use the term that concerns us in their titles. This would be the case, for example, of the Spanish film “¡Tope!”, Which was released in 1984 and is directed by Ramón Fernández. It tells the story of a couple from the 80's, formed by Juanjo and Raquel, who are living a perfect and happy relationship. However, she will be in serious danger when he falls madly in love with another girl.

Rafaela Aparicio, José Luis Coll, Ana Fernández or Teo Cardalda are some of the actors that make up the cast of that feature film embedded in what is the genre of musical comedy.

We can also mention "Playing butt", a 2000 film starring Woody Harrelson and Antonio Banderas, which tells the friendship between two prestigious boxers.

Sometimes, the cap is named as element that allows to protect or cover one end . Many times buffers are placed on the walls to prevent the door latch, when opened with force , mark the paint or coating for impact. These stops are made of materials that receive the blow without being damaged or broken.

The concept of cap, on the other hand, appears on the streets as an element that is used to force motorists to reduce speed . In this case, the term is synonymous with speed bump . It consists of a sudden change of the paving that forces the driver to slow down the movement.
