Drop in Cupholders

Hi all!

Just wondering what you all have chosen for cupholders?

I have tried these:

and I found them to be too wide and shallow to be useful in a moving vehicle.

The smaller size version is perfect for a can, but won't fit the tumblers I use 95% of the time.

I have just ordered some of these:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

They look a lot deeper and the dual width should fit both a can and a tumbler pretty well. I plan to seal the drain holes permanently with some epoxy or something similar.

Any other suggestion you might have?

These will be drop in cupholders on the arms of my couches and on the dinette table, and probably in the bedroom as well.

Hi. I have the second ones on my boat. They work great for a beer can and one of those thick coozies. Tumblers, not so much.
I had some cup holders made of Starboard on my last boat. Maybe look at those. I know you want it to fit into an armrest, so maybe a Starboard ring to insert in your furniture.

It seems what we really need for the aluminum tumbler ( at least the ones with angled sides) is a bottomless ring. This would fit all sizes. I may make my own. Starboard comes in black, cream, and white. It cuts and sands just like wood. Just know that NOTHING sticks to it. Anything you put together will have to be screwed.

Or maybe a better idea will pop up here!

I chose an old stainless steel malted milk cup. It'll hold a quart beer bottle or as here in my kitchen a spark lighter and a few hot pads.

Oooh this is just the kind of ingenuity I was looking for! That is a great idea to use in the kitchen to keep things from rolling around.
