Holds change, but too small for cup holder and difficult to extract change
on September 27, 2012
This change holder holds change ok, but the whole point of a change holder like this is to be able to easy retrieve change when needed. At this task, this product is a failure because of the extremely weak springs used. The springs holding the coins in their respective slots are quite weak and so it can actually end up being extremely difficult to get coins out of this thing. You try to slide a quarter or a dime out, but end up just pushing the coin down into the opening. You'll fumble for many seconds trying to get coins out or may just give up.
Most modern car cup holders can hold a super-gulp sized cup, but this coin holder is the size of a small coffee cup. As such, it will certainly fit any cup holder, but it won't fit in it well and will shake and jostle around. In my 2013 Ford Escape, the lip of the coin holder is below the top of my cup holder. That's not really a show stopper, but does mean you have to remove it from the cup holder in order to easily add or remove change, etc. I put the coin holder in a koozie and that helped somewhat as far as making it fit better in my cup holders.
