    Nice work.

    Two suggestions

    Make them removable without taking the leg bolts out.

    Price it more aggressively vs. the $12 pingulp.

    #3 4 years ago

    I don’t have final price yet. Literally picked up hot samples a few hours ago. Could be cheaper than pingulp!
    Pingulp premium are $14.95 buying 1-4 and $13.45 5+
    Not near as many mounting options, won’t go on a arcade game and do not accept a led add on.

    #4 4 years ago

    But the bracket can stay on the machine and the cup easily comes off. Once a bracket goes on a game it does not need to come off.

    #5 4 years ago

    We have the ability to do small run custom colors too like nuclear green for rick and morty

    #6 4 years ago

    Love the color and multiple mounting options without having to order a side specific cup
    Arcade mounting a game changer!

    Not to jump in here, and it seems that you have a great product to offer the group, but it has always bothered me that folks list here their fantastic products for sale here on Pinside, but do not actually donate to Pinside, doesn't seem fair is all.....make a freaking donation please..and then keep current.

    #8 4 years ago

    Check my profile. I have and do donate

    #9 4 years ago

    Yes, it shows you donated back 10-10-2018...

    #10 4 years ago

    Wasn’t aware of the frequency required for donations. Not a problem. How much you want?

    #11 4 years ago

    Funny, just stay current, it isn't a one time donation, especially if you are still around enjoying and using the site is all....funny guy, you think that one donation and you are good forever...and now using the site to sell your new product...YIKES....how cheap...oh well, just an observation...keep your $35.00, and enjoy your sales generated by using Pinside..

    #12 4 years ago

    Didn’t know a yearly donation was required is all. We plan to set up on the market place here and I thought there was a fee and pinside get part of sales? Still looking into this, selling product here is new to me but we will make sure all is as should be. It s not about the money, it’s about I didn’t know rules But will

    #13 4 years ago

    Easily removable for washing is an awesome feature. Love the arcade feature. I’m sure pinpimp is happy to donate at pinside at any random interval,
    Appreciate new innovative products for our games. As an operator, these look perfect.

    Cmon dude. Get a life. Sounds like honest mistake to me. Pinsides site is somewhat confusing at times. Get over it

    #15 4 years ago

    How about a Rick and Morty translucent green cup?

    #16 4 years ago

    Yes I am doing nuclear green for rick and morty!

    #17 4 years ago

    I love beverages. You guilted me into ❤️+
    Looking good

    #18 4 years ago

    Offer a smaller version as well, I hate the Pingulp due to its size. If you have a can, bottle, etc in it while your playing an aggressive game, it bounces all over (It appears in your pics, in the clear holder for example, that glass could tip). I ended up printing them myself for all my pins (see pic of one of the first ones I printed in PLA, have others in PETG and ABS). Mine hold everything perfectly (Except large coffee mugs, but I don't drink coffee).

    Nice looking product.

    I have PinGulps on all my games - LOVE 'em! I would be interested in some colors that they don't currently offer though. Such as green, yellow, and purple.

    #22 4 years ago

    I have 10 pingulps (regular, not premium) and 13 pins. Depending on where the price lands, I may give these a shot. I like the versatility.

    #23 4 years ago

    colors are coming when we start running production! everything is local so I have the ability to run small color batches or custom color.
    100 percent MADE IN USA, even the molds!

    #25 4 years ago

    The problem with 'easy disassembly' is in commercial locations that's a bad thing. Maybe an easy way to secure or lock the cup to the plate?

    #26 4 years ago

    there are 2 screws at top, some one could take a screwdriver and take the cup but they would have no bracket to go with it.

    #27 4 years ago

    rubber inserts to adapt to bottles and cans coming soon!

    #28 4 years ago

    Do you have a picture of how it attaches to arcade cabinets?

    Have you tested the strength of these? When mounted on the front, I can see people running into them. This is the reason I put games with gun handles at the end of a row by the wall.

    #33 4 years ago

    Nice work...I like the insert idea, and the ability to flip the bracket to the other side. Sign me up.

    #34 4 years ago

    I’m not trying to be snarky here
    but I would suggest changing the name. PCUP (peecup) sounds like you are going to go urinate in a cup somewhere. Otherwise nice work. Sign me up.

    If you were really just worried about Pinside, you would have sent a PM rather than trying to call someone out publicly.

    It's not about people stealing stuff as much as people 'messing' with stuff. Unnecessary 'adjustments' you might say... aka 'people will fuck with anything just because they can'

    Especially after using the product for it's intended purpose... DRINKING!

    #42 4 years ago

    We can get security torx for the locations. I’m getting a quote for bulk screws. Might add a little to cost. Cents

    #43 4 years ago

    bolt with nylon nut underside. Problem solved.

    #44 4 years ago

    If you can keep this inline pricing wise as the pin gulp that’s removable I will buy them for almost every machine I have.

    #45 4 years ago

    Defiantly will. Waiting for part piece quotes then we can establish retail. We want to be competitive

    I’m at a loss for an alternative name. No matter the name, I like the product. I’m not knocking it. I applaud them for their work. It’s something I couldn’t do. I’ll buy some as soon as they are available.
