I love my mug and wished it had a side handle.Super psyched when I saw this so I ordered it along with a new sliding lid (the old one did not clip into place when I bought it). The handle fits great and looks amazing, but if I try to pick up a full cup, the bottom loop slips and drops to the bottom of the cup. The top loop holds, but it falls to a 45 degree angle. I use it to loop around my hand, but it isn't usable to pick up by the handle alone. Thought maybe a couple drops of hot glue, but probably just leave it alone and have a cool looking cup.
