Have you ever went through a Tim Horton's (McDonald's or whatever) drive thru to pick up a tasty extra large coffee only to open the lid and spill a few drips, on your seat or just make a mess with one at home?

This is a quick easy solution, and might possibly be the best instructable of all time, all in One Step!

Step 1: Stop the Insanity!

Spills are bad!

But there is an easy fix, instead of pulling the tab back as in the first picture, you need to push the tab into the cup. My father and I were enjoying coffees at Tim Horton's one day, when he let me in on this little secret, he is a genius, jack of all trades.

Just look at the pictures.

This is very helpful and plan on using it soon, but I need an instructable that stops Starbucks spills. I don't know how many times I've ruined my shirt for the day drinking from their cursed cups.

You mean I can "unban" drinking Timmy's in my car? Not having coffee drip on my person nor all over the car will be a sheer novelty. Thanks!

I've never heard of Tim Horton's Coffee. Sounds coastal.

You are obviously not Canadian, or from the Northern United States. Tim's will eventually take over the world, You will see! This place is bigger than McDonald's in Canada.

I am from the very northern US, and I've never seen one. Which is odd, because everyone here seems to know what they are.
