What do the colors mean?
The Adapters are color coded by size. All adapters fit all stands and are available here on Flipitcap.com in additional sets of 4 on the shopping page. Mix and match colors to customize your set of Flip-Its!
We offer 3 colors of Dispensing Stands: Purple, Grey and Black. They are the same size: 38 mm.
How do I know what size I need?
You will quickly figure it out by trial and error, but here are some quick references to help you out:
How long do the gaskets last?
If treated properly, you can expect your gaskets to last for a long time. They are washable and re-usable many times over.
Gaskets prevent leaks! Always make sure to use a gasket inside each Flip-It!® part.
How do I clean the Flip-It!®?
When your bottle is empty, disassemble the Flip-It!® and wash the various components either by hand (suggested) or in the dishwasher (all parts have tested top-shelf dishwasher safe), then reuse the Flip-It!® on another bottle.
Give the Flip-It!® valve tip a gentle tug to remove it completely from the Dispensing Stand, so you can clean it thoroughly.
Tips and Techniques
If your bottle thread is the size of a nickel, purchase our Extra Small Green Adapters
If your bottle thread is the size of a penny, purchase our XX Small Blue Adapters
For super-thick liquids, run warm water over the bottom of the bottle to allow the product to move down to the Flip-It!®
Remove the valve tip to balance one bottle into another to gravity transfer. No more funnels!
Is there anything it doesn't work on?
Yes. Flip-It!® is designed for standard threaded bottles only. It will not work on “snap cap” bottles. Flip-It!® fits the majority of bottles worldwide, though occasionally a company will create a unique size or thread for their bottles which won’t work with Flip-It!®. Not for use on non-squeezable bottles.
The package says Flip-It!® helps with recycling. How so?
In order for plastics to be recycled, they need to be thoroughly cleaned. By completely emptying your bottles of residual product, you are putting cleaner bottles into the recycling stream, saving water and energy which would otherwise be required to get those bottles clean. On behalf of the one BILLION people on this planet who don’t have access to clean water, let’s not waste ours washing out bottles.
I’m trying to decide if they're worth the money. Convince me.
For the price of a cup of coffee in the airport (gone in a few minutes) a set of Flip-It® will last for years, saving you time and money on things you’ve already purchased. Flip-It!® puts that money back in your pocket, instead of down the drain or in the trash.
Did you know?
The patented valve tip provides a fail safe solution! If the valve is open, the bottle will NOT stand properly (and usually fall over!), your clue that the valve is not closed.
