Milkmen Design to Launch DipClip, a Unique Car Accessory Designed to Hold Condiments, on Kickstarter

DipClip is a solution for consumers who have often struggled with a place to keep their ketchup or sauce in an optimal dipping location while eating on the go

Described as a “cupholder for sauce,” DipClip is the perfect accessory for passengers to safely enjoy their favorite condiments. Milkmen Design LLC launched its new and innovative product on Kickstarter yesterday in hopes of raising $10,000 for initial capital costs that would support the product launch.

DipClip is an incredibly simple concept and an easy solution to a common problem. Users can fit DipClip in the front car vents or in the back seat vents in order to keep passengers from making a mess while eating. About 20 percent of all meals are consumed in a car, according to recent research. When not in use, the device is small enough to be stowed away in a glove box or center console. DipClip holds sauce containers from several major fast food restaurants — including McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy’s and Chic-Fil-A.

During a short road trip, the team behind Ohio-based company Milkmen Design LLC, stopped at a fast food drive-thru to grab a quick bite. Quickly, members of the team realized they couldn’t properly enjoy their cuisine accompanied by their favorite condiments without having to risk making a mess. It was that moment, nearly 10 years ago, that the idea behind DipClip began to take shape.

Utilizing a 3D printer, the team developed various prototypes and focused on creating a universal product. After prototypes, iterations, trial and error, DipClip was born. The final design fits virtually any car vent, and can firmly hold sauces and condiments.

“We began by experimenting and printing different interpretations until we got it right,” said co-founder Will Moujaes. “We incorporated the universal vent mount that most people are familiar with and fits almost any type of car. Next was the sauce slot, which took a lot more deliberation. The team and I went out and got as many sauce containers as we could find from every fast food chain in operation. After measuring and testing countless sauces and sizes, we went through about a dozen iterations before finally coming up with the perfect shape.”

Expected to ship shortly after the campaign ends, DipClip is an ideal stocking stuffer. To learn more, and to check out the team’s humorous Kickstarter video, visit http://prfundl.ink/dipclip.
