Hello, how does one keep cans, bottles, and cups from moving all around in the center console cup holders? My 2014 had a spring loaded insert in the cup holders which prevented them from moving around. Whats the solution for the 2017's? I searched the forum but could not find this mentioned.

A wonderful OB owner created a 3D model ready to 3D print and posted it at thingiverse.com to handle the problem you mentioned.

Thank the lord!

The one super disappointment from the 2013 3.6R was that cup holders being redesigned help spill hot liquids all over the center of the car!

We have a cup holder insert that came with our 2016. When we picked up the 2018 and saw it didn't come one, my wife grabbed the insert before we traded the 2016. You can get one from your dealer. 92185AL00A - Stopper-bottle. Interior, front, cover, console, box - Genuine Subaru Part

My 2017 did not come with the "stopper Bottle" so we bought one. It does not work well. Only works with cans and pulls out with the can. Not very usable for us.

Yeah, it sticks to almost every bottle or can we put in it. I have pulled it out of the recycle bin more than a couple of times still attached to a bottle, and have found it on the ground beside the car. It's a wonder we still have it.

Still, the best solution I have seen so far, barring buying a 3D printer. :smile2:

I do not have direct access to a 3D printer. I used the "print this thing" option on thingiverse.com and had someone print it for me, then ship it.
You can have it printed locally and go pick it up as well.

Anyone printing these things and selling them?
I have a 3d printer and live in Portland, OR. I'd happily print some.

I don't mind shipping them, but the cost may be prohibitive.

$3 to print the sleeve + shipping.

I'm guessing shipping will be around $5.

FWIW, many public libraries now have basic 3D printers available for use by patrons.

I just cut a piece of thick black foam about 3/8" thick and put it in the cupholder. Works great so far. I just put my cup or bottle next to it and it fits snugly.

THANK YOU! My local library quoted the job at $0.20/g. That seems fair, but I have no idea how many grams these things will be when printed.

Down here we have a spring loaded insert which separates the 2 holders. Works quite good and can be pulled out for cleaning
