When purchased, the valve opening is set for moderate restriction for users who tend to aspirate when taking too much fluid in one swallow. The valve can also be trimmed to increase the flow, further decreasing the effort required to drink. Adjust the flow you need by cutting back the tapered stem of the valve with scissors. The lids snap on securely to the rigid, high-quality tumblers to minimize spillage, and the tumblers are graduated to monitor fluid intake. The 1 Pack includes: 1 eight oz. tumbler, 1 spill-resistant lid, 1 select-flow valve, 10 regular straws, and 1 *free* Lip Blok (3/4"). The Lip Blok decreases tongue protrusion and promotes correct tongue and lip position. All parts are dishwasher-safe and available separately. ARK's Sip-Tip is made of medical grade materials that are FDA compliant and contain no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex. It is not recommended that the assembly be used with carbonated beverages. For easy cleaning of the valves, try a set of dishwasher bags or this valve cleaner.
