Fastening Cup Holders to Center Console

I came up with this idea because I lost one of my cup holders due to them not being fastened down.

Here is a quick easy mod to fasten down your cup holders while retaining an OEM look.

What you need:

Drill plus Drill Bits
Utility / Exacto Knife
Philips Screwdriver
Plastic Fasteners

Here's a photo of the fasteners. I bought them at NAPA Auto Parts


First use a utility knife to cut out a hole in the center of the cup holder (the part the sits in the hole in the center console)

Then stick a fastener through the hole and see if it fits well. Adjust the hole if needed.

To fasten the cup holders down, remove the screw from the fastener and slide the bottom portion of the fastener into the hole on the center console (while the fastener is through the cup holder). Try putting the screw back in. This should push out the sides of the fastener, making it too wide to come out of the center console.

If the screw will not go back into the fastener, widen the hole in the center console with a drill. Dont stick the drill down too far; there will be wires and stuff under there.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Let me know if anything in this write up is unclear. Also can this be put in the How-To Archive?
