Cup Holders

This may not be the most profound thread on Ribnet but cup holders have their place on the list of required items on a rib for some of us.

Does anyone know where you can get cup holders like the one in the photo in the UK?

I can only find them on a US website.

If I can't locate them in the UK I'll get some sent over. Does anybody else want some to make up a decent amount for shipping. They are about 8 dollars plus VAT plus shipping.

Those?

You need a bar bouy, it's a foam insulator with a bucket type handle. Those others look a little risky for the way I drive.

Checked the price when I went in to the yard this morning they are 2-50 each, I would estimate postage and packing to be 50p to 75p.
Drop me a PM if anyone wants any.

I'm not sure that those are really suitable for RIBs, as they seem to be rather vulnerable to damage and don't hold drinks all that securely. I have seen them fitted a few times though, so presumably they aren't completely useless!

My choice would be some XS-IF Coolies

They are soft plastic and attach to any smooth surface (like a console for instance!) using rubber suckers. I thought they sounded a bit Micky Mouse but they work extremely well and are almost indestructible.
