The can-panion has a few major weaknesses that make it a no-go for
me. The first it that is of too large a diameter. Even a 1lt bottle of
water flops around in it. Second, the curled clip does not fit the coming
of my kayak (Necky Looksha) snugly. The result is that the holder
hangs at an angle, which is then exaggerated when you add your
water bottle. High lean angle and a bump of the knee leaves your
bottle on the floor of the boat. Finally the size makes it awkward to
avoid when getting in/out of the boat. It is a good idea but needs
improvement. Given the price, there is little ground for complaint, but
my can-panion is on a garage shelf.
This cup holder fits beautifully and works beautifully on the side of a
Ural motorcycle sidecar!! There is a rolled edge, so it snaps over that
to hold it tightly. Finally don't have to have water bottles rolling
around my feet. Thanks!
Looks great and works well. What
else is there to say? Well thanks
to ACK for providing a great
product at a great price.
Works great.. Held my beer and
We have group of 15 or so
people who go to the beach in
Destin, FL every year. We all
rent the wooden beach chairs
there and every year I've
thought we needed a cup
holder that would attach to the
chair so that we wouldn't have
to set our drinks (styro cups,
beer cozies, etc) in the sand.
So I bought 20 of these to
hand out to the group. They
worked beautifully!! They
attached firmly to the arm of
the wooden beach chair and
held any kind of drink we put
in them. Saw some reviews on
here about the plastic clip
breaking, but none of ours
broke. Maybe the breaking
was due to colder areas where
the plastic could get more
brittle (just an idea), but in the
70-80 degrees of the Florida
panhandle it was never an
issue. Highly recommend
them for use on rental wooden
The order came quickly with no problems.
The cup holder worked but had a tendency
to swing beneath the gunnel when there
was a drink can placed in it. The drink can
didnt fall out but it did not remain verticle.
A minor annoyance at best.
For the money and simplicity of
installation - perfect.
Extremely flimsy. Does not hold
Had one of these before---lost it
on a "wet exit" :-) So,ordered
another AND a backup.This holder
We wanted drink holders for our
canoe, these snap over the gunnel
pretty well and seem to do the job.
Time will tell about the quality and
The cup holder works well
enough. I was hoping to use it
for my thermos of coffee, and
it doesn't support it so well.
For a can I imagine it works
just fine. For 3 bucks, it's
probably tough to beat. :)

Ordered a couple of these last
summer for a canoe trip and they
worked awesome! Had to order a
few more for the rest of the group
for this year's trip!
