The“Clear Option”  cup holder for the C5, C6 and C7 Corvette® ...

Here are some comments and feedback from people who purchased The Clear Option cup holder....

There are not words for these AWESOME cup holders!  Secure in the car, holds all size drinks, within reach of the driver and very sturdy! Don't mess with the rest... just buy the best! Awesome product and it works! PD, Carlisle, PA

I thought I’d drop you a note about your product.  In August, while at Corvettes at Carlisle, I bought one of your cup holders.  I almost didn’t buy it because I had purchased after market cup holders in the past, with disappointing results and yours seemed too simple.  I own a C5 and C6 and put the Carlisle purchase in the C5 (passengers side) and was amazing that it installed in seconds and worked perfectly.  Long story short, I purchased one for the driver’s side of the C5 and a second set for my C6.  Simply stated, you have a unique and great product.  Thank you.

Well I finally got to take a spin in my 99 C5 this weekend for a 200 mile day trip with my wife. It sure was nice not to have water bottles (quart on her side, 16 oz on my side) flying about the cabin as I dodged multiple So Cal idiots on the 10/60 and 605 freeways.
Normally even the smallest water bottle (8 oz) would become a projectile in the stock cup holder.
So thanks very much for product that works at a price point that kills the competition.

I received my order in about a week and it is exactly as described. Very sturdy, well finished, and IT WORKS!
I recommend to anyone with a Corvette; it's worth the money.

I received the cup holder today and installed it in my 98 C5. It certainly solves the problem of the shallow, useless, single cup holder in the C5. It fit perfect and the quality is excellent. I will show it to the C5 and C6 owners at our next club meeting and I'm sure you will get some orders.
Thank you for a fine product,

I bought one of these holders and it is a quality piece! Strong, secure, and rattle free. It folds up and is not installed with screws, so it is also easy to remove if you want or need to. For what it may be worth, I highly recommend it.

I just received my cupholder and must say, very well done. It looks nice in my grey interior. The engineering of the product is smart, simple, yet manufactured well and structurally sound. I may need to get one for the driver now that I see how nice it performs. I keep looking over at the passenger side in envy.

I received by Driver and Passenger side Cup Holders a few weeks ago but due a VERY close encounter with a large dog the C5 has been down for repairs. Finally put the holders in this morning and went for a drive with the SO. Both sides slid right into place and didn't move around at all during a 100 mile trip on the two lane country roads of eastern North Carolina. Thanks for a great product!!!!!

Received it this weekend. Mounts easily, out of the way when not used, holds most any size drink. Much better than other options available, and at a lower price. Thanks

Received the cup holders today both driver and passenger, first impression very well made and easy to install. They perform great! Look great! and best of all fold up when not in use. I will recommend them to my friends.

Got it. So simple, and exactly what was needed. Makes you wonder. All of the others are so unusable.
BB, Surprise, AZ

It is everything you said and is of a much higher quality than I expected. This will make travel life much easier.

Initially, I ordered the Clear Option only for the passenger side of my C5. I wanted to check it out before I invested in both sides. The Clear Option for the passenger side worked so well I have just now placed an order for the driver’s side. It appears to be very stable, doesn’t damage your car, folds up out of the way and is a quality made product. In addition to these attributes, the price is very reasonable for what you get. It has my endorsement.

I recently purchased a set of these and they are awesome!!! I tried several others out there for the C5 and found most if not all to be either cheap pieces of junk that required screwing something into my factory cup holder (which we all know is useless) or were big and took up too much space on the console, blocking access to electronics. I highly recommend these. Great job Dave!!!!! Thanks again.

Ordered driver and passenger side cup holders in February and absolutely love them. I just ordered the passenger side for my brother whose wife has complained about the factory holder in his 2001 since he bought it. This should make her happy.

All I can say is, WOW!! These things are truly the finest, and best performing cup holder anyone has made for the C5 Corvette. I have purchased and used pretty much every type of cup holder made for the C5 and this is the ONLY one I have had that 1) didn't get in the way of something, 2) held anything other than a 12 ounce can, 3) stayed where you put it, and 4)didn't let your drink fall out at some point. Even under hard acceleration and braking, No Problems!! The most unobtrusive and user friendly cup holder made for the Corvette.

Cup holder is a great alternate to the existing cup holder in the vette now. Holds smaller or bigger cups with it being adjustable and you can close it up when not in use which is great. Great buy!

I received The ClearOption (driver and passenger) a couple of days ago, and as advertised, they popped in in seconds. They function as advertised, and are a far more secure holder and much safer for the equipment item than the "Mickey Mouse" cupholders that come standard with the C6 Corvette. You do have to move your right leg to access it when driving to some degree, but it sure is nice to not have to worry about dumping liquid on the console all the time. They also are completely unobtrusive and look as if they came with the car as standard equipment. I will be forwarding the info to all Vette owners that I come across in this area.

We used your cup holders on the trip from Raleigh to Bowling Green a month or so ago, they worked great. No problems even in the twisties between Boone and the interstate on US 321.

Got your cup holder today,fast service,easy to install,works like a charm. My wife really likes it. She never had any place to put her drink.I'm going to show it to all my friends.I'm sure some of them will be ordering one. I heard about the cup holder on one of the forums.You did good!!!!!!!!!!!! SD, Huntington, IN

My wife and I really like your simple design C5 cup holder… My wife especially. She now has her own cup holder and no longer has to hold her drink on those relaxing rides. We also like how easy it was to install and the price. I have already recommended it to my Corvette buddy and will do the same in the next club meeting.

The service you gave was great. I ordered on Friday afternoon and my holders were delivered on Monday. The packaging was very well done to protect the holders. I installed in just a few minutes and they work great.

Got the cupholders. Heard about them from a friend who had ordered some. I'm very satisfied with them. They work well, and the best part they're not seen when not in use. Holds a one liter water with ease.
JI, Columbus, IN

A buddy of mine got a pair of your holders and I knew then I had to have a pair. I got them yesterday and they are already in the car. Thx for great looking out of the way cup holder.

I received my cup holder yesterday and put it right in. This is the second one I have bought. This is a "must have" accessory!
KO, Brighton, CO

The cup holders arrived today. It took all of 10 seconds to install the passenger one and a little longer for the drivers side. We needed to make sure I could move the seat forward when I drive it and still be able to use the holder.....YEA! I can! What a great design and product. All online purchases should be this easy and products this outstanding. I did some searches on google for corvette drink holders, including looking at the Ecklers catalog. None seemed to be that terrific. I eventually came across either a link to yours or saw a message board where they were discussed. Either way, the recommendations for them is why I ordered them. Thanks again.

must say my wife loves the cup holder we took our first trip and it worked beautifully for her. Being able to fold it out of the way is a real benefit in providing more leg room when she want to stretch out. I found the web site while I was reviewing a forum about cup holders for Corvettes, it definately fit the requirements and I will keep spreading the word.

Tried this out about two weeks ago on a 900km roundtrip. It worked very well and has certainly been a functional improvement to the vehicle.

I am a dentist in Chicago.  I am a very detail oriented clinician, and I respect and maintain machinery a great deal.  Your cup holder is very well constructed, and perfectly sized to fit in my C5 coupe flawlessly.  I give it excellent marks for construction, fit, and ease of use.
