Fix Broken Cup Holder




Introduction: Fix Broken Cup Holder

About: I am a Makeup Artist, crafter, party lover and mother.

You're never aware of the strength of a 1 year old until you face a situation like this. I never noticed when he broke it but he was very mad because his bottle would fall every time he tried to put it in the cup holder. So i decided it had to be fixed. Even when you don't have the broken piece you can use something we all have at home: a button.

Step 1: Materials

Black thread





Step 2: Take the Cup Holder Out

Take the fabric out using the plastic hooks that are attached to the car seat.

Use the screwdriver to remove the screw securing the cup holder.

Step 3: Prepare the Button

Now we're going to use the thread and needle. Pass the needle through one of the holes of the button and cross it through another hole. Pass it between the two threads to secure it. The knot will not come across the button holes by doing this.

Step 4: Sew the Button

Use the same elastic that was broken. Put the broken side in the hole and hold it. Sew the button in the inside so that you cannot see it from the outside and that it holds the elastic in place.

Step 5: Check It

Place it in a flat surface and check if the button stays securely in its place. If so, it's ready.

Step 6: Attach It

Put it back in its place and hold it with the screw.

Step 7: Fabric

You can now put the fabric pieces in the car seat. Don't forget to use the hooks to hold it in place

Your kiddo can now use it with his/her favorite beverage!

Drive safe!
