Cupholder Adapter Idea
« on: March 30, 2023, 11:33:56 PM »
I find the original Beaver cupholders to be useless for taller cups. Discovered 3" clean out adapters fit perfectly and now support a tall cup. E-Bay has them for around $8.50 Each or less if you buy more than one. I ordered quantity 3. Total came to $26.28 Free 2-3 Day shipping.

Hope this has been helpful to someone  ;)

FYI: I ordered and received the Amazon cupholders above and found them to be loose and sloppy in the Beaver cupholder-I myself prefer the snug fit using the 3" plumbing adapter. I recommend folks try both and keep what they like best. Keep the product ideas coming please.

I too have a couple similar to the Amazon ones that I got decades ago for our Explorer and F-150, but rarely use them because they fit sloppily, and add height to the whole holding attempt.  Cups, especially taller ones they’re meant to help hold, kept lopping over holder and all.  Shorter mugs with handles with a lower center of gravity work better, esp. with the handle slots.  But anything you set in there tends to make the built-in holder’s bottom just that much higher, so it needs to fit snugly.

The clean-out adapters sound like an idea, and handle slots could be cut in them.  Thumbs up, Larry.
