The SpillNot® is an elegant solution to the ubiquitous problem of spills while carrying an open beverage such as a mug of coffee or tea. A simple hanging saucer consisting of the base and a webbing loop handle, it is useful, novel,… and fun. Based on the fundamental laws of physics, it is astonishingly effective.

The SpillNot allows a single open beverage in a wide variety of container shapes and sizes to be carried easily for long distances with amazingly little risk of spilling and without excessive concentration to avoid spills. The non-intuitive nature of the solution is so striking that in action, the invention is fascinating to observe. It’s so simple, yet history has no record of a SpillNot before this!

WARNING: It’s not magic, it’s just physics. Please be aware that swinging the SpillNot with an open beverage does involve some risk of spilling.

USES:

  • OFFICE
  • HOME
  • PARTIES
  • BOATS
  • MEDICAL ACCESSORY
  • RESTAURANTS & BARS
  • PHYSICS DEMONSTRATION
  • SPORTING EVENTS/CONCERTS

The SpillNot provides entertainment and a challenge if desired. For example, some confidence and skill are required to perform tricks (best attempted outdoors in an open area with a small plastic cup of water) like flipping it upside down. However, when used simply to go from point A to point B with a beverage, it is often easier than carrying a full mug. It could also be a social ice-breaker by providing entertainment and an interesting topic for discussion, as the underlying physics are not trivial.

Each spillnot includes a black colored nylon webbing handle and a black coaster, which can be used independently or together. The SpillNot is tall enough to have clearance for a cup that is a maximum of about 5.5 inches (14 cm) tall.
