Indeed that is *exactly* how we hope to teach folks to use the system. I'm sorry if our illustrations make it look any other way! I'm going to comb through our web site and try to clarify this tomorrow, if there is time.
And thank you for your interest/comment. How did you hear about our campaign?
Would the effect be heightened by alternating the rows so one flattened bottle lies atop the gap between the two bottles below? Like the shingles on a roof they try to have the gaps not lined up.
