Cup Captain is a device that's been made to turn a standard cup holder in any vehicle into two different cup holders. Once you add this new device to an existing cup holder, you'll have the original cup holder and an additional one that's been designed to rotate up to 360 degrees away from the original. This set of cup holders is meant to be able to house two rounded drinking bottles or glasses, or two other items of a similar size and shape.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Add to Standard Holder

    To start using your Cup Captain, place it in one of the standard cup holders in your front seat or backseat. You can place it in any cup holder, but the deeper that cup holder is, the better since it'll be able to hold the new device more securely. Alternatively, if your vehicle has no available cup holders for whatever reason, but it does have a front door compartment in which you can store things, you can place the device in that compartment. Just make sure it's sitting straight up instead of being even slightly tipped over.

  2. Twist Out Second Holder

    Next, twist out the second holder so that it separates from the first. Now, you'll have two cup holders, including one adjustable one (the second one). You'll also notice that the second holder's wall is divided into three compartments. To make this holder bigger so that it can accommodate a larger drink or container, simply pull these compartments out further, in a gentle manner.

  3. Fill Holders With Items

    Once you've adjusted your second holder, if necessary, add drinks or other small items to both cup holders. You can't change the size of your Cup Captain's basic holder, so that should be used to hold a medium-sized cup, glass, or bottle. Meanwhile, the holder that twists out can hold a second drink, but it can also house a larger plastic, cardboard, or metal container if you have one that needs to be stored.

  4. Drive Normally

    With items resting in both of your device's cup holders, you should be able to drive along normally without having to worry about anything spilling on you or the interior of your vehicle.


  • Versatile

    This dual cup holder hasn't been created for use in a vehicle of a specific type, make, or model. Instead, you'll be able to use it in virtually any vehicle, including a car, truck, SUV, van, or RV, as long as it has a cup holder to house the device. If you want to move your device from vehicle to vehicle, it's lightweight and compact, so you should be able to remove it from one vehicle and reinstall it in the next one in minutes.

  • Dark Gray

    On a related note, each Cup Captain comes in a shade of very dark gray, so it should complement the interior of most vehicles, as they tend to be a shade of dark gray themselves.

  • Folds for Storage

    When you're not using this device, you'll be able to fold it down until it's small enough to fit in your glove compartment, provided that this space isn't already full of objects. If you don't have room in your glove compartment, you may want to store it under one of the front seats or in your backseat.

  • One or Two Per Set

    You can obtain one Cup Captain at once, which will give you two cup holders, as outlined above, but getting two of these in a set is another option. Logically speaking, if you get two, you'll have four cup holders. That means you'll be able to add four fast-food drinks to these plastic holders instead of using the flimsier, less balanced cardboard tray that a restaurant might give you.

Positive Points

  • Good for Lunch on the Road

    If your job involves lots of driving around, and you have to eat your lunch on the go, you can place a round plastic lunch container in your Cup Captain's adjustable cup holder. While eating while you're driving isn't safe, if you're stopped in traffic or can quickly pull into a parking lot, you'll be able to enjoy your food while sitting in the driver's seat.

  • Ideal for Pet Bowls

    Similarly, the adjustable cup holder within your Cup Captain can be used to hold onto a small plastic bowl for your dog or cat, regardless of whether it's made of plastic, metal, or something else. If your pet's loose in the backseat and you think they might need a snack or drink at some point, set up your device in your backseat's cup holder so it can house their bowl. That way, you probably won't have to make as many additional stops to feed them or give them water, especially if you have two devices that can house two bowls.

  • Will Hold Smartphones, Tablets

    Aside from round objects like drinking cups, water bottles, and bowls, a Cup Captain device will also hold onto slim smartphones and tablets so they won't jiggle around as you drive. Simply slide a smartphone or tablet into the adjustable cup holder so that each side is poking through one of the spaces between the three wall compartments. While being held securely like this, it's unlikely that your digital device will wiggle or fall to the floor and get damaged, even if you're on a bumpy road.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Make Adjustable Holder Solid

    As mentioned, there are gaps between the compartments of each Cup Captain's adjustable holder. Blocking these gaps and making the cup holder solid is quite a simple process, though. If you want to use this cup holder to hold small items that could fall through the gaps, add a paper or plastic cup to the holder first and then place the items inside.

  2. Bring Into Office

    This device is so portable that you'll be able to bring it into your office if you don't want to carry a hot coffee in your bare hand. If you place the coffee in the adjustable cup holder, you'll be able to use the non-adjustable one to hold supplies you might need for the day, such as pencils, pens, or your glasses. When the day's over, just carry the dual-holder device back outside and add it to your vehicle again in seconds.

Negative Points

  • No Square Compartment

    It's unfortunate that getting a Cup Captain with a square cup holder and a rounded one, instead of two round ones, isn't an option that's available. Many users may be satisfied with two round holders, but users who'd like to use this device to hold wide, square items, such as a small cardboard box or a sandwich container, may not be.

NEVER Received my Cup Captain Order

I would give no stars if I could. I took a chance ordering from Cup Captain, and they we're very disappointing. I too placed an order on May 21, 2021 (order# 637572384832104376) that was never received. Of course there's no contact information to get a hold of them either, so beware. Like I said, thought I'd give them a chance. But turns out they're one of those scam companies.
Order from Amazon instead!
