Cup Holders

Recommended Posts

Want to gauge interest. Nothing new but my version plus a different option.

Standard seat rail fitting but offset to avoid the angle of the tunnel. This fixes with the seat rail bolt. Of course this limits how far the seat slides forward but unless you are tiny it shouldn't matter too much. Also, it's designed for the passenger seat and how many of your passengers want to sit with their noses pressing on the windscreen?

The version here has a 75mm hole and is shown with large and small Nero cups. I made one with an 80mm hole but the cup sat on the carpet. I thought this might be an advantage to stability but changed my mind. Of course those who prefer water might want a larger diameter hole.

The alternative I am working on is a dash mounted one. Under the dash is a strip of bare metal. I have my tablet mount fixed to this. We initially thought a magnet would be good so we bought the strongest magnet in a suitable size but it simply couldn't hold the weight of a large coffee. So the design will mean two small holes drilling in the metal strip. Not printed yet but the magnet version gives the idea.

I will also try a water bottle version for the dash with a support below to stop the bottle sliding through of course.

Its looking like they would be £20 posted for either version.

Thoughts?

Good move fixing the seat based version to the seat rail bolt.    I have the one offered on DDK a while back. 
 

Although it is nicely made, the holder is threaded for the location bolt and it simply pushes the arm up against the seat rail which holds the thing in - at least to start with.    
 

Over time, the metal relaxes and the cup holder becomes loose and comes off.

I got something similar but fabricated an add on that allow it to be to the rail seat. You may also think about stepping it up to allow for longer thinner cans/bottles,

I am interested in the seat mounted one, It would have been perfect if you made it for water bottle with an additional clip on sleeve/reducer for cups.

I like that idea, shouldn't be too difficult to do for my genius No.1 son.

I think utilising the seat rail bolt will be fine. I also had one of the DDK ones, it's fine but I did wonder why the seat bolt wasn't used to fix that one.

I would be interested in a seat bolt mounted version.

This is the step up I mentioned, I can now hold the usual coffee cups as well as bigger, longer water bottles
