We are born with certain inalienable rights: Life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, blah blah blah. One thing that should be added to the list? The right to dip nuggets while in the car without making a mess.

Now there’s no reason to sacrifice the sauce thanks to the Saucemoto Dip Clip, a brilliant holder with a universal mount that clips to your car’s air vents. And you can grab two for $10 over at Amazon right now. Big sauces can go in “landscape mode,” small ones in “portrait mode,” and circle ones simply nestle inside. The Dip Clip even comes with a mini ramekin that’ll hold the sauce from squishy pouches; to be exact, it can accommodate the contents of five ketchup packets.

The makers of the best invention ever didn’t mess around. Wanting to make sure your sauce stayed secure even on bumpy rides, they painstakingly researched and tested to accommodate the four most common sizes and shapes of sauces from McDonald's, Burger King, Chick-fil-A, Wendy's, KFC, Dairy Queen, Jack in the Box, Arby's, Popeye's, Sonic, Carl's Jr., Hardee's and Heinz. And the mount that attaches to your vent uses 25 percent thicker metal usually found on vent mounts for a super-secure fit. So there.

I’m thrilled with this addition to life because I can’t count how many drive-throughs I’ve visited only to eat dry nuggets and ketchup-less fries because I didn’t want to risk sticky stuff spilling all over my seat.

I know what you’re thinking: If you’re in the front seat enjoying your dunkable feast and there are people in the back, how to ensure everyone stays sated? Have no fear — if you have vents in the backseat the Dip Clip will work there too.

It’s nice and easy, and so compact that you can store it in the glove compartment and whip it out when hunger strikes. As you can imagine, this amazingness has taken many a fast-food lover to new heights. I leave you with my favorite Amazon review, because I couldn’t have said it better myself:

“I could hardly contain myself as I opened the bag that lay on the seat beside me; reaching in I grasped the first packet of sauce I could get my hand on and pulled it out to reveal its bright red packaging. The mistress to my meal was to be BBQ that evening. I placed this tangy beautiful blend of wonderful into my Saucemoto Dip Clip and awaited the forthcoming moment in which I would learn if my dreams had really come true. My hand slipped gently back into the bag beside me and pulled out the first nugget. Holding my breath I dipped deep into the sauce covering my precious nugget in BBQ and realized the moment I had been dreaming about for so long was happening right then and there. IT WORKED, IT HELD, IT WAS GLORIOUS AND WONDERFUL. LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME!”
