Default Dual Cup Holder

I need dual cup holders in the car and I wasn't about to spend $200 on the Tom's Dual Cup Holder Adapter so I bought this from Amazon. It was 6 bucks. I bought some gripper pads from the 99 cent store for a snug fit and for 7 bucks Total I got this:

That is sick...

I usually just use the arm rest for the 2nd one but this one is even better since I always put stuff in the arm rest cup holder.

very nice, however, putting 2 big cups in front of your gear box is kind of make it harder to control the music & switching gears. also, the cup holder's side walls doesn't look very tall which can also make it easy for you to knock over your drinks which will make a bigger mess. i would rather stick with oem setting but thanks for sharing

The holders are shallow, I'm thinking of maybe modifying it to make it taller. Like smoky, I use the armrest one for my phone. WHy did lexus design the center console this way, I don't know. If it doesn't work well, I only spent 7 bucks.

Good idea but easy on the coffee!!!! I couldn't use that cause my car was a manual. I put cups on my VIP table. Cheap deal though.

Cool. I never like the placement of the single cup holder; right straight in the middle. It gets in the way when I rest my arm there. I only put my phone there.

I think most of us use it as a phone holder.

Sometimes, a trash can

I just reach back and use the holders in the back seat.

I'm scared of spilling anything that will become sticky on the lower plaster shifter covers that move when you shift. Taking it all apart is a pain, and if you try to just force it you could tear the tab that holds it... which I did in another model. I just ended up ripping it out with a pair of pliers lol

TESTED!!!

I bought a Venti Coffee from Starbucks this am and put in the cupholder for my BUMPY 29 mile commute on I-80. It held up like a champ! I was worried because of the shallowness of the holder but the venti cup didn't budge and I didn't spill a drop of my precious Pike Place coffee!

I am still thinking of modifying it though for "peace of mind."

Yeah that's pretty creative. I cringe at our cup holders cause my prego spouse always gets a Venti ice tea and a Venti ice water and our daughter has the back with her cup. So I make my spouse hold her ice tea and watch the Venti ice water like a hawk at the gear box lol. I just keep an ice water bottle in the side of the door with the rounded out groove. Def worth looking into something like this for our family trips.
