I bought the spare drink holder after losing my original when it blew out of the raft on the way to the river. The replacement slipped right into the aluminum bracket already attached to my raft frame, and is an upgrade in that the top is now a reflective silver rather than black like my older one. This one has been zip-tied to the bracket so it doesn't blow out again; the beverage can slips in and out easily enough to get a drink without taking the holder out of the bracket. The lid does a great job of keeping river water out of the contents of the can while going through rapids and keeps the beverage cold to boot.

I saw the special on these cy pollsters and I thought I'd grab a few more for my 14' and 12' NRS rafts to complement the few I have. I thought it was a good deal, but actually the hardware to make the cup holder even basically functional was not included. They should have asked at checkout if you wanted the hardware.

              There is a slot on the plastic piece which connects to the u-bolt which you
              could run a horizontal strap through. However, this would only work if you
              had a vertical strap around the thwart...works best with the u-bolt
              attachment. Other companiesuch as AAA make coozies that stick to thwarts.

              There is a clip you buy that attaches to the frame with a u-bolt. The
              cup holder clips into that.

              I did not use the provided attachment, as I used zip ties to attach it to my rod older. The attachment that came with it is in two pieces, one you would screw to the boat, and then the holder clips on to it. I love the holder because the top protects river water from splashing into my drink (and keeps it out of the sun). If I recall, it was a little pricey, but could not find anything better.

              A:

              You could give it a try but I doubt it would be successful. The female portion is a hard plastic of some sort and will probably be hard to glue. Also, the thing is ~ 2" long and you'd be gluing it to a rounded surface. The only glue that might do it is G/flex Epoxy, Item # 2272.

              Hey Adventuregrrl
              I think you have a good idea. I would try to keep the female part as flat as possible when you glue it on and sand or scratch up the back of it to accept the glue better. g-flex glue might work.

              I think it would work if you glued to a flat surface with a high quality adhesive like 3M acrylic two- way tape. I have used this tape and it will not lose its bond.

              Yes. I believe that would work, obviously a strong waterproof adhesive
              would be needed, to support the weight of whatever you're drinking, but
              once glued on securely that should work.

              Coozie needs to be taken off first. You really don't need a coozie if you use this. And a tall can can fit but the top can go over it.

              A:

              Unlike other can holders, a standard coozy won't fit (meaning the 1/2" variety). However, the can holder already has foam in it, which both floats and keeps bevies cold. Depending on the can, I have fit the smaller (say 1/4") variety coozies with a narrow can (like coors).
              Generally tall boys don't quit fit in my experience. I mean they'll fit in the holder, but stick up high enough you can't quite cover them.
              Best beverage holders I've found for a frame rig. Everyone I know uses them in Wyoming and northern Colorado.

            • VERIFIED BUYER

              A:

              Whether a 12oz. can will fit with a coozey depends. If you have one of the thinner foam one's, no problem. If you have one of the older style coozeys that are like, 1/2" thick and made of dense foam, it might technically fit, but it will be tight and I doubt you would want to wrestle with the holder to get your can out when you are floating a river. The holder I got from NRS is insulated and does'nt require a coozey to keep cans cool, but then again, I guzzle as hard as I paddle so it doesnt have time to get warm! (just kidding)
              A tallboy will fit with the lid partialy open.
