Vehicle: Car: Cup Holder
Inflatable cup holder   (+10)  [vote for, against]
Adjusts to the diameter of the cup

A doughnut-shaped bladder with a pump and release valve like those found on some sneakers. I'm thinking it would need to be built into the cup holder itself for traction, but a retrofit version might be worth toying with.

Note that this would be suitable for both built-in cup holders as well as the add-on, hang-from-the-window type.

For holding an inflatable cup? [waugsqueke, Jun 03 2002]

I just love inflatables.

Neat - Kills two birds (the birds of insulation and cup-grip that is) with one lightly tossed stone.

Portable, stand alone unit (in addition to built-ins and hang-from-the-doors), so I can take my beer swimming.

My mother-in-law and I have been talking about this for some time. We envisioned it as sort of 'v' shaped with a weighted bottom with sand a la the slightly demonic clown bop-em's. We even had a name for it, the crotch catcher - because nothing holds your drinks like your crotch.

I'd buy this. (Owner of car with cupholders the size of saturn's rings, so useless).

I have no cup holder at all (sob) Only an ashtray and I don't smoke.... why not a cupholder replacement to go where the ashtray goes.That would be. better than nothing

I like the cup holders that squeeze the cup as a result of the pressure on the bottom of the cup holder.... same concept i guesss.
