M3W Cupholder

M3W Cupholder Link

I found this on the Web and then modified it so I now have a cupholder. I live in Arizona and it is bloody hot. Lots of water must be carried with you so it was a must for me. Once the bends were made I placed it under the seat and is held very firmly. Works perfectly. I have the same cupholder in my truck so I know it is a very high quality product that lasts. Hopefully this is helpful for those who might need one...please, no comments needed from those that don't. Thanks.

Thanks for that excellent placement idea, I've been toying with the idea of those and where to fix them.

Excellent "non invasive" solution to otherwise having a water bottle rolling around the passenger foot-well!

Here is the exact part I used which is located at the bottom of the linked page in my post above.

Fischer German-made Cup Holder - Fischer Cup Holder with Rear Console Mount - US$21.99 + shipping

Couple of quick bends as indicated in one of the pictures and you are good to go. Since the experiment worked I ordered a second one myself.

I have no monetary interest in this product but the owner Mike has been nice to correspond with.

Mounting: Once the angles were bent and the mount fit I pushed the seat into the car holding the mount firmly. Then I removed the red 3M tape, opened the cupholder and slide the cupholder back onto the tape while keeping it centered onto the mounting plate. Now it opens perfectly and primarily rests on the floor giving it extra stability. Just a suggestion....

UPDATE:
Ebay has these same cupholders, without the mount, for US$25+PLUS shipping. Mike has a very fair price indeed.

Oh...and the passenger cupholder makes a nice phone holder too I found out.
