Am I the only person who thinks these things all look like some kind of mid evil torture device?

It did come with two rubber pieces that isolated the holder from the dash. I must have misunderstood the post from gooberschnot, I thought he was referring to a rubber sleeve for where the cup goes into the holder.

I don't make a big deal of this we have them manufactured at a place that hires disabled, mentally handicapped, autistic for most of the jobs.
Great to support a business that helps the community in that way!

It's a minor complaint, but if the manufacturer put a little more time into the final finish of the product, I would pay a few extra bucks for it.

I like the GRP because it's got a phone holder and it's black, but it doesn't retract.

I'm very interested in this. Is there a new version out that works with the center gauge pod yet? If so, I'll gladly take one at the Sept 20th Bear Mountain drive!

Just a follow-up review - this cupholder works very well for me! I've only used it a few times, mainly with styrofoam cups from local restaurants. Have had no issues with cups fitting and they stay in snugly during normal driving. Only little flaws are - doesn't slide in and out very smoothly, finish quality is slightly below average. For the price, very hard to beat.

HI guys.
Yes I am busy with LOG in 2 weeks but the real issue is two fold.
The company I was using to make these was a sheltered workshop. They lost their funding with the new guy in office. I have not found another place to make them that they don't cost a lot more.

Second as far as responding. Very serious family medical issues have taken me out of the loop on some things. I am very sorry for the delay in getting back to you.
