Hello from Contigo HQ-
We know you’ve seen it all over our travel mugs, water bottles and kids bottles. AUTOSEAL® Technology – It knows when to close™. But what exactly does that even mean?
Well, the simple answer is that the lid automatically seals so that you don’t have to worry about spills.
For those who want to dive deeper in to what the technology does or think it may be a load of irrelevant malarkey, then keep reading.
It all started with a problem that we’ve have all encountered: spilling. It has happened to everyone and always seemed to happen at the wrong time; before a date, as you walk in to give a presentation or before a big job interview.
So we decided to come up with a solution to that problem. We designed a lid that would be able to seal everything in. No spills or leaks, even if it was knocked over in the car, on your desk or on the night stand next to your phone.
The cool part is that the seal happens automatically, so you don’t even have to think about it. We wanted to make it easy and intuitive so that it was as simple as pressing a button to drink and letting go to seal it, hence the AUTO…SEAL (tricky, huh?!).
The idea seemed easy, but we have to admit, it was a bit complicated to create. Our designers and engineers spent countless hours crafting myriad designs (we’re kind of perfectionists). After a great deal of testing and refining, we ended with our first AUTOSEAL® travel mug and now the line has grown into the #1 selling* line of travel mugs (we’d call it a success). People have been such big fans that we decided to add it to our water bottle line and our kids water bottle line too!
In addition to being spill and leak proof, we also made AUTOSEAL®so it can be used with just one hand. So go ahead, keep texting dolphin emojis in that group chat or whatever else it is you do with your other free hand.
