A newly granted patent (Publication Number: US11878842B2) details a bottle assembly with innovative features aimed at ease of use and secure coupling. The assembly includes a bottle with a closed base, a shoulder, and a cylindrical neck, along with a collar featuring a teat.

The detent formations are specifically structured to allow for easy uncoupling when the collar is rotated, enhancing user convenience.

Furthermore, the patent describes additional elements such as orienting protrusions on the shoulder and collar to prevent incorrect fitting, multiple detent formations for added security, and asymmetrical shapes on the shoulder and collar to ensure proper alignment. The teat assembly includes features like an annular flange for sealing and is designed for easy coupling and uncoupling from the bottle neck. The collar material, polypropylene, and the integration of the second detent formation with the collar highlight the attention to detail in the design of this bottle assembly. Overall, the patent showcases a comprehensive approach to improving the functionality and user experience of bottle assemblies through thoughtful design elements and secure coupling mechanisms.
