Cup Holder

 

The issue of a cup holder might seem trivial to some, but for some people, the intelligent (or at least convenient for them) placement and quantity of cup holders is one of the deciding factors in choosing which car to buy.

The single cup holder in my Jeep Wrangler, which is located on the shifter console (on the hump), was always inadequate; it had to be lined with a coffee cup cardboard ring (those things fast-food places started issuing after that woman won a substantial lawsuit against McDonalds for coffee that was 'too hot' HBO even had a documentary about it!). Such things makes one wonder about how much thought the designers really give to such things.

A standard coffee cup bounced around, and a tall cup comes dangerously close to the shifter in 2nd gear. In addition, when I installed Racing Bucket Seats, the front, right side of the driver's seat made putting tall coffee cups in the cup holder all but impossible. Luckily, I had also installed a Locking Center Console, and the flat, front surface of the console was an ideal place for a cup holder.

I went to Pep Boys and picked out a cup holder I thought was decent, and modified it so it would simply snap on to the front of the console with button snaps. I used two #6-32 x " screws  washers and nuts to secure male snaps to the console, and two #6-32 x " screws and nuts, and some PC-7 Epoxy to secure the female snaps to the cup holder. The reason for doing this is two-fold: If I dropped something under the cup holder, or needed to vacuum under there, I could just un-snap the thing without having to become a contortionist, and if it ever broke (by my dog accidentally stepping into it), I could easily replace it.

The position of the new cup holder is within easy reach, and out of the way of the shifter. The original cup holder is now fitted with a thingie that holds and neatly dispenses what would otherwise be "loose change".

Snap-on cup holder mounted to the Locking Console, and stock cup holder repurposed as coin dispenser. Modified cup holder showing female snap fasteners and stick-on rubber bumpers.

Locking console snap fasteners and rubber bumper to match the one on the cup holder that quite doesn't reach the surface of the console.

 

 

 

The steel Locking Console was repainted to match the color I painted the Jeep. Its flat surface is ideal for mounting things to it, and I thought it was a good idea to put a cup holder here.

Although the way I did it is a bit unorthodox, I found that it holds a 24-ounce cup of coffee just fine even on a rough dirt road. However, even though the snaps are pretty rugged, I'm going to add a small (#6-32) captive screw and a captive nut (on the inside of the console), this way I can secure it better for those times I'm bouncing around in the Jersey Pine Barrens.
