A newly filed patent (Publication Number: US20240034523A1) describes a container closure made of plastic with innovative features. The closure includes a spout for drinking, a jacket with internal and external threads for fastening to the container, a lower rim, and a nozzle for pouring. A closure cap with a sealing element is coupled to the spout via a hinge, allowing it to pivot between open and closed positions. The design also includes upper and lower thread turns, stops to delimit the thread turns, a tamper-proof ring, and pins for engagement, providing a secure and user-friendly closure mechanism.

Furthermore, the patent also covers a container design that complements the closure. The container body is designed to receive filling material, with a neck enclosing a dispensing opening. The neck features an outer thread and an annular bead, while the spout of the container closure includes an undercut for a non-detachable form-fit with the container. The closure cap, hinge mechanism, and thread turns on the jacket ensure a secure closure, while additional features such as a sealing ring, latching mechanism, and outer ring enhance functionality. Overall, the patent presents a comprehensive solution for a container closure system that combines practicality with innovative design elements to improve user experience and product security.
