This car add-on holds Yetis, Hydro Flasks or other massive cups, plus a snack — get it while it's down to $25

Can you believe there was a time when cars didn't come with cup holders? People used to drive without a cup of coffee, soda or their emotional support water bottle. I get parched just thinking about it. But some people are thirstier than others, and they need a bigger beverage than what can fit in a standard cup holder. Amazon customers have discovered the ultimate solution: The Seven Sparta Cup Holder Extender and Tray. This little gadget lets you get your extra-large sip on, and it gives you extra space for a sandwich or snack— and right now you can get it for $25.

This gadget is designed to expand on your car's cupholder — not only does it give you room for a large cup (hello, ridiculously oversized tumblers) but it also has an attachable tray where you can put food or other essentials.

Why is this a good deal?

You can save almost 20% on this car must-have thanks to a limited-time deal on Amazon. You can also grab a pack of two if you have multiple rides — the set is also discounted. Any road warrior would agree: A few bucks spent on making a long trip more comfortable is money well spent.

Why do I need this?

The extender fits inside cup holders between 2.5 inches and 3.75 inches, using them as a base to hold larger bottles and tumblers that have up to a 4-inch diameter. That alone has made many Yeti Rambler owners very excited, but it also can fit water bottles from brands like Hydro Flask, Nalgene, Camelbak and Klean Kanteen. (The viral Stanley Quencher is famously designed with a narrow base to fit into most cupholders, even without this kind of add-on.)

The extender features a ring that's used as a second, standard-size cup holder and holds the tray. The tray swivels 360 degrees so you can put it in a position that's safe and comfortable, even if you need to eat lunch behind the wheel.

What reviewers say

This problem-solver has nearly 2,700 five-star fans, and it's easy to see why.

"My new car came with really tight cup holders that wouldn’t accommodate my large Yeti," wrote a rave reviewer. "This solved that problem."

"My husband loves it," shared another happy shopper. "He was able to hold two cups (his Yeti and Starbucks) and have a tray for his breakfast to boot. He is traveling to different work sites often, and this keeps things organized and mess-free."

Shoppers who spend a lot of time in their cars say it's a game-changer for keeping things neat and organized. "I am a home care nurse," reported a rave reviewer. "I pretty much live in my car 8-10 hours a day. This is exactly what I needed. It holds a portion of my lunch. It will hold my coffee or soda ... I have emptied my pockets onto the tray and it holds up well."

"I travel all over my state for work," shared another nurse. "Always have the passenger seat with my laptop. Now my fries and burger have their own place while I'm driving. And as a nurse, that large cup holder holds a pump of hand sanitizer. Worth the money."

"This has helped when I needed a little extra space or place to set my food," said a final shopper. "However, whenever there is a passenger in the car, it gets in the way. The tray is either hitting them in the leg or hitting the gear stick. Works great if no one is riding shotgun."
