I had to stop using the straw top lid due to having a tooth removed and the paracord handle does not work with the screw top lid. It was fine with the straw top lid.
I needed something other than the lid top to carry my large insulated jug! This works perfectly. That rubber band is definitely snug and that cord isn't going anywhere!!!
This handle is exactly what I needed for my 16 oz insulated mug. the mug itself is very wide around and sometimes proves unwieldly. the handle makes it easier to hold onto and easily removes for cleaning. Matches my mug wonderfully. I use it with the cord lock up towards the top of the mug so it fits in the car cup holder and I like it that way.
The handles are a nice addition to my sports bottle. I like it that the colors match the bottles that I have.
The only downside to the handle is the little clamp that holds the elastic cord tight. The spring on that, should be a little better to hold the larger bottles. It works fine on the smaller 18 oz. bottle, but not as well on the 40 oz. bottle.
The band is super hard to get on the water bottle. The plastic strap adjustment button makes it hard to put the cap on. Not great design. :(
