Thread: Manual Chair -- Cup Holder?

  1. #1

    Manual Chair -- Cup Holder?

    How do you carry a full cup of your preferred beverage from one room to another while using a manual chair? I have tried using a binder in my lap and carrying it that way, but carrying it around all day is a bit of a nuisance when working at a desk and having to always load and unload my lap.

    What do you do? Closed container? Cup holder? Camel pack? Just curious if anyone has discovered any novel solutions to this minor problem.

    I have some friends who use a cup holder. They zip tied it to the side of their down tubes. It seems to work. I believe they use the tubing that comes out from the down tubes to the caster housing as well to keep it from slipping down.

    www.sportaid.com has a good cup holder that sells for about twenty bucks. I also have a couple of Sigg bottles (www.mysigg.com) for water that I throw in a bag onto my push handles.

    I use a water bottle holder that goes on a bike. Walmart 5 dolllars. It's attached with velcro straps so it swivels to get out of the way.

    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

    Excuse the dorky scooby doo picture. See the giant cup there? It's strap adjusts for any size drink.

    Go to look at

    The huge hole in the gription handle lets you put a big carbiner through it to attach to tubing. The larger the tubing just buy a larger carbiner.

    I bought this one at a trade show, works great if you have a vertical tube to attach to, should fit any size:

    Since it's a velcro attach, it also swivels when you hit something, which I do...

    Indeed it does! What a hugemongous drink you have there! If it can hold that sucker, it could hold anything! Only at Disney.

    eta - is that Disney? Hmmmm...maybe not. Looks fun, none the less.
