The Tugo is a cup holder for your roll-along suitcase. The rubber holder hangs from the two extending bars that comprise the slide-out handle, and keeps the cup upright, letting you cruise across smooth airport concourses without spilling a drop.
I gave up on rolling luggage after the Lady told me that it sapped me of my manliness (somebody else told me that my suitcase was the color of “a prosthetic limb”, which may also be a factor). If I was still toting a carry-on feminizer, though, instead of a testosterone-filled rucksack, I’d certainly grab one of these $10 holders. Heck, it would even be useful for holding rolled-up magazines or jackets, the kind of stuff you usually try to balance (in vain) on the top of the case.

"I admit it. I drink too much coffee. Especially when I'm traveling. It's one of the little things that helps take the sting out of out schlepping my bags through an airport or hotel. Unfortunately, it's not always easy to wheel my bags through the terminal with my laptop bag swinging from my shoulder without spilling my coffee.
Luckily now, I don't have to worry about that. I just came across a pretty nifty little product that solves that problem."
"Cups full of liquid automatically swivel to remain upright when a bag is moved. Presto--a free hand finally for digging out the passport! Simple, cheap ($9.95!) and effective. What more could a business traveler want?"
