The Andy Handy Water Dispenser can be installed in the base of a bucket or a dry bag and works as a simple but effective hand washing or shower device. This is a must-have in any base camp.

To activate the flow of water all you need to do is tap the centre of the dispenser and you will get a handful of water.

To install this fantastic little gadget you need to make a hole of exactly 14mm in the container for the product to work. Any other size hole and the Andy Handy will not fit.

  Brilliant gadget. Has made such a difference in forest school and allowed us to use a lot less water. So easy to use and the children love it!

  Functional but made with a very brittle plastic. The shape means that there's a significant weak point where it connects to the container and I expect it will snap off in short order during use or transit. Will certainly break should the container be dropped during filling. Should be made at least partly from metal but sadly isn't. Requires a very unusual drill bit size to properly fit. Disappointing for the price.

  A great addition to any camp, easy to attach to a dry bag and the seal is really water tight. Would certainly recommend.

  Great product for our camp site and HQ where we have no washing facilities. We had to replace one, as the bucket it was fixed too had fallen on the ground and broke the Andy Handy. Shame they are not that robust, but I suppose, it would cost more otherwise.

  One of the most important bits of kit you can have. There is no excuse to ruin a trip by contaminating yours, or someone else's, food. I installed this into a small dry bag and always invite the entire family to wash their hands comfortably before a meal in the wilderness. With this installed, we are all more likely to go wash our hands that extra time, because it is so easy and available.

  I first used the Andy Handy on the Bush Chef course with Ray Mears and was immediately impressed with it. It's well made and is such a simple idea that you wonder why no-one thought of it before. Unfortunately the packaging doesn't give instructions in English but the product page on the Woodlore website explains how to install it into a dry bag. I bought some fine nylon mesh from the local fabric shop and made a small bag in which a bar of soap is permanently in place, this is attached to the bottom of the bag. The whole unit lives in a small stuff sack to prevent soap getting over the rest of my kit. Alcohol gel is a great step forward in camp hygiene, but nothing compares with the feeling of washing your hands with soap and water, and this little unit allows you to do just that.

  I first saw the Andy Handy used by Ray on the Fundamental course. I immediately wanted one as did everyone else. What a handy little item it is. I use it whether backpacking or in a day camp. When backpacking every ounce counts so I'm glad it's made of plastic. In fact I like it so much I ordered another to use outside my chicken coop.

  Superb little bit of kit with a bit of work to add to the bottom of a dry bag. It makes a superb quick hand wash system when I’m doing fish processing demonstrations. I was a little surprised that the main body is plastic not metal although it makes it nice a light when carrying out and about.

  It's a simple but effective piece of kit, it has been used in the field on expeditions and in the work place on construction sites.

  Excellent price of kit if a little expensive for a bit of plastic. However not being metal makes it very lightweight and you're more likely to carry it.
