So you’re on your way to work in the morning, in a hurry not to run late again; you stop at your favorite drive-in, get your regular cup of strong, tasty coffee and get back in your car. You take one sip and place the cup in the cup holder. It might be a single, a double or a four-cup holder like the ones we are currently selling here at SeaSucker. If you choose the low profile cup holder you can turn one of the holders into a small dry box you can use to carry your cell, PDS, or wallet. Horizontal or vertical mounted cup holders are also part of our offer, and if you also love martini or wine you can check out the special Yoebi Stemware holder for an excellent accessorizing idea. But let’s get back to car cup holders – do you have any idea where do they come from?
Say Goodbye To Thermos Bottles
Old cars had really bad suspensions and the only way to carry liquids while driving was by using thermos bottles. Once the rise of parked drinking and eating venues began, trays one could place on partially rolled-up windows were built. They were used by drivers and folks travelling in the backseats were still forced to place their bottles down on the car floor. The glove compartment door was also used but passengers could not avoid annoying spilling and cup sloshing. When beverage cans appeared on the market, the first cup holders were released. However, they were made of plastic and they were attached to the doors of the car. In-between seat consoles were built by American car manufacturers, and Europeans only started using them later on. Cup holders that could be placed on armrests and dashboards soon followed, but they had one major drawback: they often times obstructed the buttons controlling the car’s heaters, windows, or rearview mirrors. Today’s cup holders enable passengers to enjoy extra safety on the road, allowing them to use their smartphones while sipping their favorite liquids on the road.
