A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11858694B2) discloses a unique bottle design comprising a body with a base, shoulder, neck, mouth, and finish, along with an overcap featuring an inner skirt to close the mouth and an outer skirt covering the neck and shoulder. The overcap includes an offset portion with ribs connecting the inner and outer skirts, providing a secure closure mechanism.

Furthermore, the patented bottle design includes a closure with a cover and tamper-proof band, where the inner skirt of the overcap engages with the cover using teeth and lips, ensuring a tight seal. The inner skirt is designed to interact with the cover and tamper-proof band in a specific manner, allowing for easy removal of the overcap while keeping the closure intact. Additionally, the inner skirt features teeth that engage with ribs or teeth on the cover, facilitating the twisting on and off of the closure. Overall, this patented bottle design offers a novel and efficient way to seal and secure the contents of the bottle, enhancing user experience and product safety.
