French fries are a fast food staple. Whether you prefer the waffle fries at Chick-fil-A, the crispy and salty fries at Burger King, or you love the pillow-y potatoes from Wendy's, you know that fries are a part of every single meal. Fast food chains have even embraced the dipping sauces over the years, with brands like Chick-fil-A serving up their signature Chick-fil-A sauce, Whataburger's variety of ketchup packets, and McDonald's barbecue dipping sauce. And don't even get us started on honey mustard. Whatever your favorite condiments are, you might find it difficult to enjoy them in the car.
Say no more. We've found another contender for your list of things you didn't know you needed in this in-car sauce holder. May we introduce the DipClip, a one-of-a-kind sauce holder specifically designed to fit any car vents. Now's the time to start practicing safe saucing and never use your center console for fast food sauces again.
Created by Milkmen Design, the DipClip is for all fast food aficionados who love to dip their foods in a sauce. Whether it be Chick-fil-A sauce, tangy Arby sauce, or even a side of zesty ranch salad dressing, the DipClip has your back for all major fast food needs with this in-car holder.
The design of the sauce holder actually came about 10 years ago when the designers were on a road trip to Michigan. Fiddling with holding their sauces and dipping their chicken nuggets, it was clear that there had to be a better way to dip your nuggets without spilling all over the car.
The first attempt at a traditional vent mount fit on only one kind of air vent and after consulting each other and realizing that the design was not fully universally usable, the designers put the design on the back burner for a few years. That is, until they came across a 3D printer. Once again working on the DipClip, they were on the hunt for the perfect design of a universal vent mount. Gaining inspiration from cell phone holders and the cell-phone mount, the team crafted out a prototype to fit all vents and sauce sizes.
The design of the DipClip is simple: a engineer-grade plastic condiment holder that fits onto any air vent. It is designed to hold an array of sauces from major fast food chains. A highly engineered 5-in-1 aperture design holds almost all sauce containers from every major chain plus the DipClip comes with its own ramekin for small, floppy packets of Heinz ketchup.
With 37 days to go, this Kickstarter campaign has gone above and beyond it's initial pledge of $10,000. At $37,038 pledged already, backers can expect to receive their DipClips starting in April.
Now you no longer have to worry about spilling your precious sauces or trying to balance that precarious packet on the glove box. The drive-thru just got a lot more enjoyable and finally, you won't have to eat sauce-free food in the car again.
