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.
After a long flight for a business trip in 2014, Mr. Hui Shao used a vacuum insulated flask with a traditional screw lid to hold his coffee. The coffee was so hot that he could only take a small sip each time, and he couldn't leave the flask open on his tiny tray for fear of spilling. After constantly having to unscrew the lid and screw it back on for just a small sip of coffee, he became frustrated.
He realized that everything around us was constantly changing to become more efficient and reliable. So why hadn't something replaced the screw lid? As a former intel engineer with a Master's Degree in mechanical engineering and computer science, Mr. Shao has always believed that there is a solution for every problem.
Setting his mind to the task, Mr. Shao 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lid system is a completely new experience for sealing reusable bottles and containers that will finally replace the outdated screw lid in our era of convenience and reliability.
