Climbing Hold Mugs May Never Slip Out of Your Hand

You know that scene in movies where a character has a sudden realization and their coffee cup dramatically slips from their fingers and crashes to the floor? That, in theory, would never happen were the characters using these Crux Mugs, which employ an artificial climbing hold for the handle.

Depending on which $16 design you buy, you'll have to learn to get used to holding your coffee in weird new ways. But the payoff is that no natural disaster, nor dramatic revelation, will ever wrench your coffee from your hands.

Since I have a degree in handleology, I would like to say that I do not think these work as well as a traditional loop handle. While cute, they are not as secure as the old fashioned way.

Why? the handholds are designed to be solid and stable. You are pulling down on it with your weight.

Now grab this. Those handholds aren't meant to support anything held from the sides. Your coffee is destined to be spilled.
