Gear: Quick Release Drink Holders Install Where Others Won’t

Accon Quick Release Drink Holders

Jan 26, 2023

Plentiful drink holders have become expected amenities on today’s boats but can be tricky to retrofit to older models, especially if the owner is uncomfortable taking a hole saw to their vessel or unsure of the precise location of hidden wiring and plumbing lines. Quick Release Drink Holders from Accon Marine utilize a simple surface mount that eliminates cut-outs altogether, allowing quick and easy installation nearly anywhere on board.

Formed from marine grade 316 stainless steel for exceptional durability and corrosion resistance, Accon Quick Release Drink Holders consist of two hardware pieces. The holders snap securely into a base that installs with two #10 screws, allowing mounting in places traditional recessed drink holders simply won’t fit. A quick-release latch enables the holders to be easily removed from the base for cleaning or storage.

Accon offers both single and double Quick Release Drink Holders. They feature a 3.5″ opening to accommodate a wide range of can and cup sizes. An attractive, open-frame design keeps beverages secure while preventing accumulation of dirt, debris or rainwater when the boat is not being used.

MSRP for the single Accon Quick Release Drink Holder and base is $90.70, while the double model with base is US$115.19. An optional vertical mount provides other installation choices.

These drink holders are widely distributed in Canada.

Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
