In 1858, John Landis Mason invented the screw lid, which has dominated the market for more than a century. The screw lid provided a major upgrade from the days of sealing containers with messy wax or cork. The screw lid wasn't perfect, but it was a vast improvement for the time.
Technology has gone even further in the 21st century, improving on the screw lid in revolutionary ways. Even after 100 years, we are still dealing with unfortunate situations like drenched backpacks, over-tightened lids, or safety risks from using two hands to take a sip of our favorite beverage.
Manufacturers have tried a lot of options to meet the urgent demand for efficiency when it comes to opening and closing bottles. Flip lids and straw lids have been used to bypass screwing and unscrewing a bottle top, but they also have their own difficulties. These innovations have provided valuable products to the market, but they still lead to leaking, trouble cleaning the lid, and a less than ideal drinking experience that compromise a bottle's integrity and convenience.
Mr Hui Shao was tired of seeing hundreds of disposable coffee cups being thrown away each and everyday in his city Portland, Oregan. But when he bought himself an insulated flask to re-use, he quickly learnt it was a less than ideal solution.
After several situations of spilling his coffee on the way to work, he realized that everything around him was constantly changing to become more efficient and reliable. So why hadn't something replaced the screw lid? With a Master's Degree in mechanical engineering, Mr Shao has always believed were there is a problem, there is a solution.
Setting his mind to the task and with many failed attempts, Mr Shao finally invented a revolutionary upgrade to the current sealing method for reusable bottles and containers. After two years of designing and experimentation, the Revomax quick release, threadless lid was born! The Revomax lid system is a completely new experience for sealing reusable bottles and containers that will finally replace the outdated screw lid in our era of convenience and reliability.
