Coin Holder?

I have a 2015 Summit and was surprised to find that it doesn't have a coin holder (like my 08 Overland had). I've been using one of the cup holders for my loose change but its a PITA to hunt for coins for tolls etc. Has anyone else had the same problems and how did you solve this problem? If you bought a coin holder, what do you recommend?

Re: Coin Holder?

The '13 doesn't either. Our Acura had one in the center console, but that was hinged to open with the underside towards the driver. Maybe something could be affixed to the little shelf that's inside the console?

Re: Coin Holder?

I've always used a small change bag that I picked up from a shoe repair place. Has a zipper to keep the coins from falling out. I keep it in the little cubby hole where the SD slot is. Up on that little shelf

Re: Coin Holder?

The cup holder ones are convenient.

Re: Coin Holder?

I suspect that the prevalence of toll systems like EZPass are also affecting why coin holders are less likely to be included in today's vehicles. I don't even carry coins in my pockets anymore...

Re: Coin Holder?

The cheapest toll I've paid in recent times was $1.00. The highest was my last trip to NY with $16.00 round trip for the Verrazano Bridge. Even without EZpass, do we need change for tolls? It's more like we need a second mortgage.

It's not just tolls.

If you park in town, you may need to feed meters and most still only take good old hard currency. We're seeing some that take plastic, but I almost never see them around here. If you don't have change in smaller towns, you're SOL.

It's also nice to have a supply of quarters for the occasional trip to those self-serve car washes. Around here, we call them "salt removers".

In addition, you never know when the only place to top off a low tire may charge for the air.

Finally, yes, I've actually been in a position where the only means to make a phone call was a pay phone (middle of nowhere with no cell service, but an actual phone booth).

At any rate, I bought this:

Amazon.com: Custom Accessories 91116 Coin Holder: Automotive

It works well as a sorter, but the velcro tape it uses is really weak. That is, the tape holding the velcro to the sorter or whatever surface you adhere it too is weak to support the weight of the coins. The velcro stays stuck well enough. Perhaps a bigger piece would help. The one supplied is pretty small.

My original plan was to stick it to the lid of the console, since it fit well toward the rear with room for my phone to sit in the upper tray. It didn't stay stuck.

So, I ended up just putting it in the little shelf inside the media slot compartment below the stereo. It seems happier there. I still might stick it to the inside wall of the lower compartment of the center console, but I need a better way to stick it. I just need to be certain where I want it before I do.

Re: Coin Holder?

Could it fit in the door handle area? I used this location in a different vehicle before.

The sorter is much smaller than that area, so it would bounce around a lot in there. You could stick it in with velcro or double sided tape, but I would still worry about it coming out when the door is closed hard.

In my case, the other issue would be the sorter being black and the leather being tan. I also like to keep money and other objects out of sight. It's amazing how even the least valuable objects will cause someone to break a window to steal them.

I can't remember the last time I even touched a coin. No tolls or meters around here.

Re: Coin Holder?

I have been throwing it in the bottom of the console. Definitely not the best solution, and it is hard to get out with a CD player taking 1/2 of the console. I like the sorter thing and may end up going that route.
