Abstract

A folding cupholder is disclosed. The cupholder includes a base, a cover pivotally coupled to the base, and a retaining member pivotally coupled to the cover and/or base. The cover rotates between a stowed position and a deployed position where it supports a container. The retaining member is contoured so that a varying amount of space is provided between the retaining member and the base depending on the angular orientation. The contoured of the retaining member is also configured to provide a generally circular space throughout its range of angular orientation.
