Item not useable; almost returned item
No glasses or bottles that I use will fit in this Drink Buddy even though I am following the directions to use it. The measurements in the catalog are misleading; the opening is much smaller than it appears which means that larger glasses and bottles (still under the stated max of 3.25" diameter) will not fit inside the opening. If I could return the item for a refund without having to pay return shipping, I would.

from the Inventor
Dear Drink-Buddy purchasers-
My name is Allison Roesser and I am the inventor of the Drink-Buddy. The reason I am writing to you is to 1) apologize for the product breaking, and 2) to explain to you that we believe there may have been a manufacturing error. We spent over three years designing and testing this product and were having so much success with it. As the person who invented the drink-buddy for myself to use for my family, I was beyond devastated to learn that there is now a problem with the product after all of our hard work and efforts creating it.
The manufacturer has agreed to make good on this mistake. I am hoping that I can send any dissatisfied customer the newly designed units to use and test and give us your feedback. If this is something you are interested in doing, can you please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will mail the test unit out to you right away.
Many thanks and again or deepest apologies for the inconvenience this has caused you.

Difficult to get container in- Split on second use
While trying to insert a tippy cocktail shaker (2-1/4" diameter at bottom and only slightly larger halfway up the side) Drink Buddy split apart on one side, not useable now.
It also has a very large footprint once on, so couldn't have kept it on the container in between use.
Sounded like a great idea, but next to impossible for even an adult to use. Read reviews of any product you're considering.

Product works great.
Bought all colors available. Works great for all ages, pre-teens to
senior adults. Everyone that received one loved it and I am happy
to say I haven't had a mess to clean up from a spilled drink since.

good for keeping glasses from spilling over but the opening could possibly be just a little larger

Does not work and was a waste of money.
I tried it with cans and glasses and it wouldn't work on either. They both tore out at the down curve so became useless. Wish I could get my money back on this one for sure.

Thought this product would be good to help avoid spilled drinks with my little ones running around. None of our cups or bottles fit in it without having to fight to get them in. Quite disappointed but not worth spending the money on the return.
