Circle K Thirst Buster 64oz DIY Cup Holder
I use my 64oz Circle K cup a lot at work, for water and Gatorade (haven't put soda in it for a year.) but it's awkward trying to keep it in place on a golf cart, and almost impossible to keep it upright in the van. So, I added a holder to the cart (see picture) made from a 6" S&D PVC pipe cap. The cap is exactly the right size to hold the cup.
I also made one for the van, but had to figure out a way to keep it from falling over and sliding around the van. (Many wet accidents with that cup!) Hence the 10 lb. weight and Velcro feet.
It cost about $10.00 for the weight, $6.00 for the cap and $5.00 for the bolts and other hardware. Which sounds a bit steep for a cup holder, but it was a fun project and serves a good purpose for me.
I've spent the last week using the weighted version on the front seat of a golf cart where I work. In spite of the sometimes rough paths and bumpy roads, it has stayed in place holding the cup without any problem or spills.
... and no, I don't know if there's a cap that will hold the 100oz size Circle K cup...
