Spillah® Can Lids

SpillSales is a start-up venture established to commercialise a unique stacking lid for beverage cans of all sizes. The Spillah® was originally designed to with festival goers in mind, but has since found application in many different areas, including as a powerful advertising medium and a collectable. 

Due to its innovative sealing rings, Spillahs enable users to re-seal cans of different diameters and to stack multiple cans securely on top of each other for easy transport from the drinks tent... No more dropped cans and spilt drinks. You can even drink from the top can whilst the bottom can is securely sealed. Genius!

Spillahs are also useful around the home - for stacking cans in the fridge, preserving the fizz in opened cans, at the family barbecue, and many more.

IP Resources has worked with the inventor of Spillahs to secure broad IP protection for the device (including trademarks, design rights and patents) and current efforts are focusing on negotiating international agency/wholesale agreements, as well as generating local sales and product sponsors.
