    This is what I use. Purchased from marine stores. Folds neatly when not in use:

    Try Sammons Preston wheelchairs-accessories-drink holders

    or a froogle.com search on “wheelchair cup holder” yields a ton, though I don’t see mine, which I found through some referral site that begins with “Able.”

    Think about whether you want one that's insulated, or has slots for a handle.

    I have this cup holder on my front right down-tube. It works great. Wisdomking is the only place I can find one like it.

    It can be positioned on the inside, outside or side of the tube. Its easy to just pivot it into position.

    You can get almost the same thing at Walmart for 5 bucks. I mount mine with velcro straps and it's easy. Adjusts to fit any size cup even the big gulp!
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.


    Sometimes it is easier to widen doors than it is to open minds.

    things to carry hot coffee in... an obsession of mine! briefly, i like the liquid caddy (www.liquidcaddy.com) and a similar swivilling-thingy i got at a golf store, but found at sammons preston (http://www.sammonspreston.com/app.as...oduct&id=44231) the liquid caddy (if you like it do a google search - prices vary wildly) can be a bit bulky, although it removes very easily. the golf one twists up on itself to store flat, and its small and lightweight. i did find another one at sportaid age ago, but it swivals in only 1 direction, which does not always keep the coffee in the mug!

    lately i have gone in a different direction. i use a leak-proof travel mug with a handle (mostly this one http://www.amazon.com/LiquiSeal-360-...=3SCQT21M2XP67 although there are others) and i either dump it on my lap or hang the handle off the frame bar beside the edge of my cushion - i have a tilite tr with an extra inch in the frame. the coffee doesnt spill, the mug doesnt get in my way, and its there when i need it...

    This is my favorite mug of all time. It comes with the carbiner so all you have to do is buy another one that goes around the wheelchair tubing and then clamp this to it. It absolutely will not leak and keeps coffee hot for about four hours.

    i rigged mine up with those cheap ones you get at wal mart and zip ties. it cost like 2 bucks because i already had the zip ties. the cup holders are the kind with the hook at the top to hang off of stuff. my dad cut it off, layered two of them (you get them in a 4 pack), and used three zip ties to secure it. after he trimmed the excess zip ties, i took a nail file and smoothed off the edges. i learned that the hard way! i scraped up my arm on the edge of a freshly cut zip tie. it has an opening in the cup holder for handles. it works great and i have it set up that it's toward the back of my chair so it's never in the way.

    Those zip tie cuts are a pain; actually they're not for me and therein lies the danger.

    I use a nail clipper to take off the sharp edges once the excess has been cut off.
