You can press onto a sturdy mug, but a tripod will give a more stable base. This base is custom made by our machinist out of Delrin, it has no-slip rubber feet added to legs that are removable for travel. The legs are no longer threaded, they are friction fit, this is because some had problems with cross-threading the original design.
