You would find no dearth of inventions in today’s world that seem to be in existence since time immemorial. So much so, that we actually have to rack our brains to think back to the time when we managed our life without them. One such accessory that has become an indispensable part of our life today is a cup holder.
You cannot escape the cup holder on any normal day of your routine today. It may not be one of those landmark creative breakthroughs in human history but still life without them would be inconvenient to the point of being unimaginable. The most common example is your automobile. Automobiles would be without a doubt the biggest users of drink holders. An average American daily commute would be incomplete without that morning coffee on your way to office. Imagine that long drive without a chilled coke to give you company. Imagine taking the risk of spilling your morning coffee all over your suit every time you drink coffee in your car. Thanks to cup holders, such concerns never figure in your daily plans.
Another variety is the poker table cup holders. They are used primarily to hold beer and other drinks while you sit back and enjoy a game of Texas Hold’em or any other poker game at the table. You can see them in plenty at any casino. Constructed out of steel, they are basically comprised of a steel plate fixed to the table edge, providing a secure and simple way of holding your drinks.
To further increase the convenience factor, makers have also come up with these rotating cup holders. They come with swivels which allow them to rotate closer or farther away from the user depending upon his/her convenience. The best part about these is that they are also available as standalone fittings, which can be installed into tables, chairs or even cars as and when you want them.
Recent times have seen the advent of insulated cup holders. Put simply, they are just insulated containers that can hold your cups and at the same time ensure the temperature control of the beverage inside them. They are especially useful in countries with extreme climates.
All in all we can say that we have today cup holders for almost every occasion and situation. The key is to make sure that you keep in mind the exact usage before you set out to buy one.
