Drink Holder

I have been looking for a decent sized coffee mug that will fit in a pop can designed holder. Most of them are just a "hair" too large to go down into the opening so teeter on top.

You can get a drink holder that attaches to the wall and is expandable or large enough for most mugs!

I got a pvc reducer fitting that one end is small enough to fit the holder and the other is large for the cup .I think it is a 3x2 reducing coupling.You could even cut a notch for the handle.I use mine for a tall stainless cup so a notch is not necessary.

Best coffee mug I have found. You can lay it on its side and it will not leak. Keeps hot coffee hot for hours.

Camelback also makes one that won’t spill even if on its side, keeps it hot a very long time.

I’ve been using these for years. Fits just about any cup holder in any car I’ve been in. Keeps coffee hot well into the afternoon.

Drink Holder

Thank all of you for your tips & suggestions. I believe the one that fits me (and the motorhome) is the pvc reducer. I visualize glueing a piece of pipe on the bottom for more stability and the wife will be good to go.

Armed with measurements I went to my local irrigation store to pick up the required reducer. Not even close! I came back to your post to ask for the size you used & waalaa, there it was. I'll Google it & get one. The fit on both ends will be a bit sloppy, so I'll shim both ends plus add a piece of pipe to aid in stabilization. Did you do any of these things?

Mine works fine with no mods but maybe i am not a perfectionist.My feeling is pretty good and usable is better than If I ever finish it it will be perfect but until then I can't use it.

I my long haul trucking days I traveled 100s of thousands of miles using a roll of duck tape for a cup holder. Fits pop cans and even on the roughest roads a 44 oz big gulp will not tip over.

We upgraded our pickup truck to an HDT. Still using the roll of duct tape. At first my wife was not amused but now she has her own silver cup holder.
