CoolerClips™ Giveaway!

61  comments

Giveaway closed! Congratulations to our winner Danielle Rea, who has been a member of My Fishing Cape Cod since March of 2022.

Spring is in the air and beach season is right around the corner!

For this upcoming season, I've partnered up with Darren Slattery of CoolerClips™, to provide members and fans of My Fishing Cape Cod chances to win $100 gift certificates for Darren's innovative new products.

To enter today's giveaway for a $100 CoolerClips™ gift certificate, simply leave a comment below. I will randomly draw the winner one week from today on May 18th.

Like many of us, Darren is an enthusiastic fisherman who was introduced to me through another member of My Fishing Cape Cod.

From tinkering around in his dad's garage as a kid, to doing his own home remodels, these two backgrounds have fostered an entrepreneurial spirit in Darren to provide a range of products to make his customer's adventures more convenient, customizable and just plain cool!

As a kid growing up in Florida, Darren would spend his weekends at the beach. From early morning fishing to flashlight tag at night.

Like many of us at My Fishing Cape Cod, Darren (and his friends) have always loved weekends at the beach!

However, because Darren spent so much time at the beach, he was constantly working out of his cooler, which created some problems. For example, if you wanted to pour a drink or make a sandwich, then you would have to clear off the top of the cooler, put things all over the place, open the cooler, grab what you needed, and then rearrange everything back on top of the cooler.

As an adult with his own kids, Darren experienced the same issues. Finally he decided to design a way to make his coolers more functional, convenient, and easy to use. By simply fastening a plastic shelf to a clip that inserted into the tie down hole of his cooler, Darren created a place to pour and rest drinks, mix cocktails, and make sandwiches.

Darren's accessories fit many hard and soft coolers. He offers fit guides on his website to help customers find the right products for their coolers.

After using and showing it off, Darren's friends said that he should provide these for everybody, so that's what he's doing. Darren is personally making his products by hand, and all of the components are made in the USA.

His products at coolerclips.com connect to your cooler for attaching accessories. These products attach to hard and soft coolers, of most brands, and immediately create a convenient platform for slide-on cupholders, cutting boards and table boards. 

To enter this giveaway for a $100 CoolerClips™ gift certificate, simply leave a comment below. We will randomly draw the winner on May 19th and post the winner's name to the top of this blog post.

Tight lines and good luck! 🎣

I'm fortunate to have grown up on the beach, and I've been fishing since kindergarten. I have great family, friends and fishing experiences to be thankful for. Just being out there is enough-catching fish is just a bonus!


  • That’s a awesome product, I think that is a cool invention to put on any cooler that’s something I would want on my coolers

  • Want to Thank Ryan and all his followers for this opportunity to be part of My Fishing Cape Cod. As a former Mass resident(Marblehead) I miss this time of year when the stripers start rolling in. Thanks everybody and contact me directly with any questions etc…. [email protected].

  • Colman and yeti designers wake-up, Darren has upped the game with a “cool-er” design idea that may be found on all the beaches this summer.
    Many times I’ve found myself with to few hands. Hot idea in the cooler realm.

  • Hmmm, those could probably be used in/on a lot of other devices/places besides coolers as well…
    Thanks.

    • John, you got the idea… anything that has some type of backing to it so the clip can lay against it to provide support

  • Awesome idea for this product. Thanks for showing me this. I have a round Kulu cooler n I will need to look at his products to see if cool cooler company has something for my cooler.

  • Looks like an experiment that went well and has turned into a profitable business venture .
    Peace and Prayers Carl

    • David, have the full rig for the Yeti buckets(you can check them out on the website). I surf fish for Snook when I am back home in Florida.

  • CoolerClips looks like a great system! Some coolers have indents for cups or non skid tops to try and solve the problems CoolerClips has but they end up collecting dirt, crumbs rocks and sand. Darren has solved this problem. Although the pictures show a nice food setup I can imagine the products also being used on a “fish cooler”. seaworm containers on the drink holder setup side, cutting up bait on the table side. Looks like a great system. As an engineer I always like to see great design…..Think what the future holds! a place to put the phone, bluetooth speaker, paper towel holder…….

  • Writing this piece from Sanibel Island after some great Snook Fishing
    Ready for the Summer of 2022 and some terrific Striper Fishing .
    Memorial Day next weekend .

    • Richard, I was just fishing Fort Myers beach two weeks ago, some photos on website. You need the Yeti bucket set up!

  • Fantastic product. I am big on Cup Holders and this can be used for more than just holding cans i see. Holders are so important to me that when I purchased a canoe I went with Old Town because they have built in ones. You never have enough holders or flat areas to work on. I am sure this is great for the beach, the camper, the hiker and by the pool. Super product 🎉
