Default Cupeez Door Handle Pocket Protectors

I thought these looked pretty slick; bought one pair last week and another pair this week. Magnetic pads that you heat up with the car's heater and then form to the shape of the pocket. $15/pair in the US includes shipping; I bought mine on eBay. Applied to my Khaki CVT named Buttercup...nothing but the best for my lady!

More pics here...and I drove over 500 highway miles with the front ones installed over the weekend. No problems with loosening.

I like these! And just to clarify, they are magnetic? So, no adhesive and easily removable?

Yes, they are magnetic and fully removable. You heat them up with the car heater to soften them initially so that they form to the curved cup-like shape.

I got some if these. I don't think magnetically on them are very strong. May put them on my Rover instead.

I opted to use the same material that they have on clear bras put on. My wife's Escape had them and I thought it was good. I like these as well.

Nice..thanks for the tip!

Sometimes it is the little touches that can add a bit of flair (or over-pimping I guess..depending on your stance..) Saw the thread in the forums about Cupeez and thought that was a pretty good idea since I'm often juggling a kid, a backpack, keys, and a few other things..so scratches sometimes happen. EDIT - Just be aware you get 2 per pack - so for 4 doors you need to order 2 packs!

I came across some adhesive clear ones on Amazon.com but these seem much better. Thanks for sharing! I'm gonna snatch some up.
