Q. What are the bonus accessories I get when I order handSteady?
At the moment we're offering two accessories as bonuses when you order handSteady. The Hidden Lid fits handSteady very discretely, includes a drink hole which you can use with straws and keeps your drinks hotter for longer. The Anti-Slip Base sits around the base of the cup and this increases the grip with the table, removes the need for a coaster, keeps it cool to touch and reduces sound when returning the cup to the table. To find out more about the accessories see the accessories page.
