I bought this item so my drinks would not role around on the floor of my boat. It will hold different size bottles, but it will not stay close when not being used.

I bought two of these and had the same experience as most with the unit not staying shut. Then I bought a package of hair ties, basically cloth covered rubber bands, and mounted one so it could go around the top of the unit when closed. It stays in place because it is between the back of the unit and boat bulkhead and is not in the way when open like a clip could be. Now when I want to put in a drink, I flip up the band and unfold the holder all with one hand. Putting it away is just as easy since I flip the base up and pull the hair tie down and around again to hold it in place. The package of hair ties has 20 for just over a dollar so when they get brittle or stretch out, I will loosen the screws and replace the tie toot-sweet.

Gets the job done, but cheaply made
Bought two of these for my boat since the built in "fancy" ones broke. Installation was quick. Double sided tape is provided, as well as screws. I used the tape since I don't like to put more holes in the boat than necessary. After two trips out they are still holding up well and so far have been worth the low cost.
That being said. These are obviously cheaply made and are not built to last. As long as you know that up front you'll most likely not be disappointed. If I only have to replace them in a year or two it'll be worth it.
I also wish there was some sort of clasp to keep them in the "up" postion when stowed. All it takes is a slightly bumpy ride and they open up. I guarantee the first time that happens and I don't notice it I'll probably break it.
