I wanted a place to mount my GPS other than the dashboard or windshield so I came up with a simple & easy way to mount it in the cup holder with no screws or bolts.

Step 1: Materials Needed

All that's needed is a 2" PVC female coupler, a piece of 1/8" plexiglass (size 3.5 "x 4.5"), some industrial strength adhesive or strong glue & some sandpaper.

Step 2: Sand Edges

Next, lightly sand the edges of the piece of plexiglass, corners too.

Step 3: Glue

Carefully add glue to the edge of the coupling & set the piece of plexiglass on top. You don't need to press too hard, just give it light pressure to the top. I glued it off to one side so I can turn the mount around being I have a tight space where my cup holder is. This way you have more area for the suction cup to adjust for your specific vehicle.

Step 4: Let Dry & Install

After the glue sets up, install in cup holder. Attach suction cup to the mount & adjust your GPS. That's it!! Note- The black mount that's in my truck is one that I made a while back. I thought it looked better than grey. You can use a black ABS coupling if you want. I just wanted to show how to make these. Enjoy!
Funny thing is, I didn't realize that they sell these on Amazon for around 20 bucks.
<p>Thnx for sharing.</p><p>Sure, you can buy one, but where's the fun in that? </p><p>Truth be told, you can probably make something similar with stuff you already own (CD jewel case &amp; plastic cup, etc.).</p>
Thanks! Yea I didn't want any more holes in the truck so I thought this was the answer.
Simple and effective! I've been trying to figure out something similar, but your design looks perfect. Great work!
