How Tether works

Its hollow base slides over dishwasher posts while the end clasp clips onto your stems. Each rod is adjustable for either the top or bottom rack.

Like all Quirky products, Tether was invented and influenced by real people like you. Gary Rose spent years watching his wine glasses end up on their side, dirty or broken after a dishwasher cycle, even after he upgraded to a fancy new machine. This graphic designer is inspired by everything from his daughter to low-budget sci-fi films to Apple products. Sometimes, he admits, he's a little *too* organized. We can only imagine that he's mastered the perfect dishwasher layout!
