    When I upgraded to a Vamo, I found that my standard practice of sticking my eGo up in the visor was not going to work anymore. I had been just setting the Vamo down on the console or the passenger seat, but that was kind of a pain. I was looking around for a solution and found it in the recycle bin in the kitchen. It's a plastic tea bottle with a fairly large mouth. I just cut it off to a length that would hold my Vamo without touching any buttons. I glued a little strip of padded stuff around the inside of the mouth to avoid rattles and scratches, and cut a similar pad to fit in the bottom of the cup holder. Not too fancy, but the price is right and it works perfectly.

    Very good. I think though I'm goin to take a piece of styrofoam, cut it to fit the cup holder and then cut holes in it for my APV. The holes won't be deep enough to touch the buttons so no problem there.

    a real redneck holder would have just been a few criscrossed strips of duct tape :)

    A few strips of duct tape is prohibitively expensive compared to using components salvaged out of the garbage can. As an added bonus, I'm saving the earth by recycling.

    I'd give bonus points for beer cans instead of TP tubes.

    But beer cans can be recycled for money to buy more beer....

    If you leave the correct amount of toilet paper on the roll, it could be customized to fit the cup holder exactly.

    Pros: 1) customized fit 2)emergency supply of toilet paper available at all times
    Cons: 1) explaining to riders you why you carry toilet paper in your cup holder. 2)toilet paper is more expensive than plastic bottles pulled out of the trash 3) a few splashes of coffee onto your TP - PV holder would probably make it look "used"

    Mine is a place in the door handle where the plastic finally gave up the Florida heat fight and left a broken hole where the screw used to be. It's the perfect size to set in my ego batt to make sure it doesn't fly around the car. Now that's redneck. Lol

    I LOVE that!! I'm doin' it!

    Now . . . any elegant solutions for carrying? Like a NICE lanyard??? I never have pockets this can fit into. I'm hooked on lanyards (much like phonics - they work for me!)

    I agree. From the title of the thread, I was looking for the duct tape. Here on my I pad, I zoomed as large as I could on the pic, but didn't see any. I mad a REAL redneck holder for a friend. I used a pool noodle as in the picture above, but wrapped it in silver duct tape to "dress it up". I would provide a picture, but my friend went back to his home in SC. :D

    Stupid question - I got the noodle, now what to cut it with? Box cutter? I want the edges to be straight.

    A serrated knife should work excellent for this, we have a pool here at our community, one of the noodles is going to get mysteriously shortened tonight!
