Hydration Tips

International Bottled Water Association offers the following tips for maintaining proper hydration:

Drink at least eight 1 metric cup servings of water each day. The more active you are, the more water you need to replenish lost fluids. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink water. By the time you feel thirsty, you have probably already lost two or more cups of your total body water composition. Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Convenience is a must, so carry a bottle of water with you as you commute to work, run errands or enjoy a day at the beach. While at work, keep a bottle of water on your desk, or visit the office water cooler and take a water break rather than a coffee break. Don’t substitute beverages with alcohol or caffeine for water. Caffeine and alcohol act as diuretic beverages and can cause you to lose water through increased urination.Once you start exercising, drink water throughout your workout. Keep a bottle of water with you and take frequent water breaks. Don’t underestimate the amount of fluids lost from perspiration. Following a workout, you need to drink two cups of water for each pound lost. Start and end your day with water. Your body loses water while you sleep, so drink a serving before bed and again when you wake up. Common colds and the flu frequently lead to dehydration. Keep a large bottle of water next to your bed so you can sip it throughout the day without having to get up.

Cool water – not carbonated beverages or sports drinks – is the best fluid for keeping hydrated when it’s warm outside. Cool water is absorbed much more quickly than warm fluids and may help to cool off your overheated body. If you’re going to be away from home or outdoors, make sure you keep a bottle of water close by.Make sure your children drink enough water. Children need water to balance their intake of other beverages – especially during activities. Packing bottled water in a child’s lunch instead of juice or regular soda can also help prevent childhood obesity.

  • “Hi there – I just think you are the bees knees with the new liquid holster. IT IS THE BEST THING EVER. I bought mine at the child show in Auckland last weekend and I cannot rave about it enough. It also makes me drink water when out walking as before it was too hard to bend down whilst walking to pick up my water bottle and now I am wanting to buy another one so I have one for me and one on the otherside for my 17 month son. Thanks heaps for the great invention.”

    Belinda – New Zealand
  • “I have my liquid holster attached to my mountain buggy pram and it is just awesome. What a great invention, it is so good to be out walking and not have to stop and bend down to get my drink bottle. As I go up hills, the basket tilts with the gradient and there’s never any spillage. Thanks for a great product .”

    Tarina – New Zealand
  • “Great Product!! makes drinking when pushing a buggy around a lot easier as your water, coffee, frappachino etc is on hand within an instant and yet you are able to hang it up as such so both hands are free!! Way to go L.H.”

    Cheyanne – New Zealand
  • “This product is fantastic, I have been needing something like this for ages for my Mountain Buggy for when I am walking, it is hard to walk and hold a water bottle at the same time in easy reach and this has solved that problem for me. Plus it is great for my coffee when I am shopping or for my daughter’s bottle. Great invention, well done.”

    Linda – New Zealand
  • “This product is fantastic. After biking for 2 1/2 hours in the Redwood Forest just out of Rotorua (NZ) on up to a Grade 4 track, the Liquid Holster could not be faulted. It withstood rough terrain, sudden drops and bumps and the bottle didn’t once fall out and was so easy to get to. This is a must for everyone, biker or not! It is brilliant”

    Wick – Avid Liquid Holster fan – New Zealand

Does it need to be removed to fold down the Stroller / Buggy?

Most strollers can be folded without removing the drink holder part of the LIQUID HOLSTER®, however if it does need to be detached, simply give the blue toggle a quarter turn and it will come off. Note: the clamp part of the LIQUID HOLSTER® stays on your stroller.

Does the Liquid Holster fit a Bugaboo?

Yes. Please select the ‘Base’ LIQUID HOLSTER® model.

Will if fit my Stoller / Buggy?

The LIQUID HOLSTER® has a unique adjustable clamp that fits most strollers/buggy’s with a square, round, oval or rectangular tube with a dimension of between 10-35mm (inches) radius.


Can I use the original Liquid Holster® in my Vehicle?

No, the original LIQUID HOLSTER® has not been designed to fit in vehicles. You will need the specific LIQUID HOLSTER® Vehicle drink holder, which uses the same holster but the attachment is different and you can’t buy these separately.

My car is fitted with drinks holders – why do I need a LIQUID HOLSTER®?

Most car drink holders are either located in the centre console where you end up putting cellphones, lipsticks, or loose change and are usually too small to take a larger drink bottle. The LIQUID HOLSTER® lets you still put your cellphone somewhere and also lets you get up to an 800ml drink in your car without the worry of it toppling over if you drive around a corner.

Will it fit my car?

The LIQUID HOLSTER® car attachment has unique 3 stage clip fitting that allows for the thickness of your car window sill. We have used/tested the LIQUID HOLSTER® on many cars and different manufacturers and it fits all that we have tried.

Will it damage my vehicle’s interior?

No, the LIQUID HOLSTER® uses no screws, glue or adhesive to install in your car and will not damage any of your expensive vehicle interior.

Can my children who are sitting in Booster seats or car seats us the LIQUID HOLSTER®?

Because the LIQUID HOLSTER® is installed at the height of the car window sill – it is within easy reach of your children for their sipper bottles. Word of caution: Parents don’t trust your children with open cup drinks unless you like sticky seats!

Where can I install it in my car?

On any car door that has an operable window – for front or back seat passengers.
CAUTION: We recommend that you check you have full access and ease of use to all driving controls and door handles etc prior to starting your car if you install it on the driver’s side.

Can I remove the basket only and leave the clamp in the window?

Yes, if necessary, using LIQUID HOLSTER®’s patented technology, the LIQUID HOLSTER® can be easily removed from the clamp in just a few seconds, leaving the clamp installed down the window sill.

General Design/Installation/Fitting

Why is Liquid Holster® any different to other drink holders on the market?

The LIQUID HOLSTER® will fit a wider range of drinks, hold them more securely, self-levels and the use of the LIQUID HOLSTER® isn’t restricted to a single buggy/trundler/bike etc brand.

Does the Liquid Holster® come in any other colours?

The current colour options for strollers are grey with blue details, white with grey detail, or black with grey details. Please note: due to bar sizing variations on strollers, your prefered colour may not be available. Please check this during the order process on this site. The Vehicle drink holder only comes in black.

What can the Liquid Holster® be fitted to?

The LIQUID HOLSTER® has been installed on golf trundlers, electric golf carts, baby strollers, buggies, bicycle, children’s bikes, motor boats, yachts, accessability equipment, quad bikes, tractors, commercial lawnmowers, BBQ’s, truck cabs, shopping carts – almost anything! Also, please see the installation photos which may offer further guidance.

Can I remove it once I have installed it?

Yes, very easily, removal is just the reverse of installation, so you can move it from front to rear, side to side or car to car with no tools in just seconds!

What is the low profile fitting you mention?

This method of fixing the LIQUID HOLSTER® allows the LIQUID HOLSTER® to be fitted to a boat bulkhead or truck cab using suitable screws that screw the front half of the clamp to a flat surface. By unscrewing the clamp into two sections and only using the front half the LIQUID HOLSTER® can be permanently installed on flat surfaces, whilst the holster can still be easily removed with a quarter twist.

How can I check to see if it will fit before I buy one?

The LIQUID HOLSTER® fits nearly all baby strollers/buggies, bikes, accessability equipment, and boats, but the fastest way to check to see if the clamp will fit is by getting a piece of paper and wrapping it around the tube where you would fit the LIQUID HOLSTER®, mark with a pen where the paper over laps and measure the length of paper. If the paper measures less than 35mm (inches) then generally the LIQUID HOLSTER® will fit your item.

How long does it take to fit?

There is next to no skill in the installation required – generally it will take between 3-5 minutes.

Will it take hot drinks?

Yes, the LIQUID HOLSTER® is designed to not distort or soften with hot drinks, however for your safety, we do not recommend the use of sipper cup lids, especially whilst around children. We also do not promote the use of hot drinks in cars whilst driving.



If you have purchased a Liquid Holster from within NZ or Australia and have experienced problems with the basket portion detaching from the clamp, please contact us.

I have lost the instructions. How do I install the Liquid Holster®?

Click here to go to our installation page.

The Liquid Holster® slips around the bar when using it? Why’s that?

It is very important for the LIQUID HOLSTER® to work as designed, that the clamp is tightened occasionally as tight as possible – using a coin or a key in the end of the clamp (slotted bit). Retightening the clamp will keep the LIQUID HOLSTER® sitting vertical. If the tube you are installing the LIQUID HOLSTER® on is slightly too small for the clamp, you can loosen the clamp off and wrap a piece or rubber around the tube to bring it up to our minimum measurements and then retighten. Due to the universal fitting design of the clamp, this will only be necessary if your tube is too small or has very little grip i.e. greasy.

I can’t get it to fit my Buggy

It is important to remember that when you unpack the LIQUID HOLSTER® to unwind the clamp to its maximum to ensue that when you screw the two pieces together again that they will join comfortably – then wind the clamp back in very tightly!

Also note that on some installations you may need to remove the clear plastic inserts – if you’re not sure, please contact us and let us know what sort of installation you’re doing so we can help. Also, please see the installation photos which may offer further guidance.
