Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE MAX DIAMETER IT CAN HOLD?
The largest diameter the Conester will hold is 87 mm. Don't be afraid to grab the biggest mug you can find since today's mugs are taller and tapered.
WILL THE BASE EVER LOSE ITS ABILITY TO STICK?
Because it doesn't have or use any adhesive or glue, the Conester's tacky tech base will never lose its ability permanently. The materials structure is naturally "tacky."
DOES IT NEED TO BE CLEANED?
Because of how strong the poly pads tackiness is, it will pick up enough dirt and grime overtime to weaken its ability. We recommend just running the bottom under warm water and rubbing it clean with your hand. After air drying, its ability will be like new.
In regards to the shell and interior we recommend wiping with a warm damp cloth.
DO THEY STACK?
When we first designed the Conester we wanted them to stack, but we found out that after making them stack-able we decreased the safety and security of our drinks. To make an item like this stack you have to decrease the angle of the wall and when the wall leans so does your cup. That's not what the Conester is about!
When most companies make a product stack-able, their main concern is saving themselves shipping costs. We here at Fox Valley Novelties want our products to perform at their maximum potential, so we don't mind paying the extra shipping costs.
We found that really the best way to store them is any way you can think of. On the bottom of the kitchen table, they'll stick! On the back of the cabinet door, they'll stick!
ARE THEY ONLY FOR MUGS?
No, the Conester has no prejudice towards any drink-ware. No matter the shape, style of cup, glass, mug, bottle, or can, we've done our best to create an all-inclusive anti spill cup holder. With smaller cans and bottles we have included our snug zone insert. This foam insert helps decrease the interior width leaving smaller cups feeling safe and secure.
I DON'T HAVE A DESK SO I DON'T NEED A CONESTER RIGHT?
Everyone could use a Conester! If you don't have a desk that's fine! We love that about you and totally support your desk free lifestyle. But every one drinks. Every one has also spilled a drink. :(
We know of a million other places your Conester will be needed. Here are a few...
~ How about your living room? You already have traditional boring coasters laying around. But, have they ever prevented a spill? Nope. Those coasters don't care about your drink or your table. It's time to give them the boot!
~ Do you ever work from your local coffee joint? Don't only bring your laptop and spare dollar for unlimited use WiFi, make sure to throw your Conester in your back pack and avoid that embarrassing spill that draws attention to your table.
~ Love flying across the lake with your speed boat? Or maybe just the pontoon boat. We know how most people spend their time on the water, and we know there's never enough cup holders! Add a bunch more. The Conester is a perfect little skipper!
~ Gotta mow the lawn? Your old lawnmower doesn't have a cup holder? BaBlaam! Slap a Conester on the hood of that 1 horsepower beast and you'll never have to stop for a beverage break.
~ Is Gramps a bit too friendly with the break pedal in the family RV? Instead of watching that glass fly towards the front windshield make sure your RV is stocked with Conesters so wherever you are at the only thing coming to a crash is the RV, not your drink!
DOES THE CONESTER ONLY WORK ON A PERFECTLY FLAT SURFACE?
No. We know not every desk is a sea of glass. Whatever texture your workspace or table space is, your Conester will latch on! That's why we said no to suction cups because they need a perfectly flat surface. The sticky poly pad holds no prejudice to your table surface. It wants to be as close as white on rice to your table!
