When you get hungry while driving, finger foods make the most logical food to grub on, since you can reach into a bag and stuff the whole thing in your mouth in just a single go. It’s the ultimate in convenience. Problem is, there’s no simple solution when you want to dip the bite-sized food in some type of sauce before popping it in your mouth. At least, not until the DipClip came along.
Designed to mount onto any vent in your car’s air conditioning, the rig is designed to hold the most common fast food sauce containers, allowing you to dunk your finger food in delicious sauce before popping the greasy grub right in your mouth. No more putting the dip on your leg, on the dashboard, or any other place where it can fall over at any time. Whether you want your chicken nuggets dripping in barbecue sauce, your French fires covered in catsup, or your cheese curds lathered in sour cream while heading home from the office, this thing lets you have it without getting in the way of your driving.
The DipClip has a frame made from ABS plastic that’s designed to accommodate all sauce containers from all the major fast food chains (tested compatible with McDonald's, Burger King, Chick-fil-A, Wendy's, KFC, Dairy Queen, Jack in the Box, Arby's, Popeye's, Sonic, Carl's Jr., Hardee's, and Heinz), making it perfect for all the takeout you eat in the car, all while coming with its own food-safe container in case the dip comes in a packet instead. That means, you can also use it to enjoy your favorite sauces from home, whether it be that special hot sauce you got at the trade show, a homemade dressing your wife makes, or any other dipping products you stock in the kitchen.
It has a uniquely-designed clip in the back that can rotate into 16 different positions, allowing it to mount onto any type of vent that’s installed in your car, while four different gap sizes let it fit snugly, no matter how thin or thick the mounting points are. Since it’s largely non-intrusive during use, you can keep it on the vents full-time, as well as stash it in the glove box or center console if you prefer keeping a tidy cabin.
While designed for the car, the DipClip should work any place where there are spot you can mount the clip onto. You can, for instance, clip three of it to a plate when eating on the couch, in case you want three dips within easy reach at all times, as well as clip it to a mesh container on your desk to amuse your co-workers with your floating condiment. Okay, we can’t really think of a lot of other places where the darn thing can clip, but the design sure opens up the possibilities for some creative uses.
A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for the DipClip. You can reserve a pair for pledges starting at $10.
