Step 1: Step 1: Drill Your Holes

Drill two small holes 1 1/2 inches apart in both the Chip Clip and the measuring cup handle as shown in video. The holes should be slightly smaller than the Screw or Bolt you decide to use for a snug fit.

Step 2: Step 2: Screw Your Screws

Place the screws in through the chip clip and the measuring cup. Tighten snugly!

And Done. No, really that's it, All Done.
