AbstractA holding device for drink containers for installation in the fascia of a motor vehicle has a slide member on which a holder is mounted so as to be pivotable upward into a horizontal position and to which a support is linked which is likewise pivotally mounted on the slide member and which, when the holder is pivoted upward, pivots with a setting-down surface beneath an insertion opening in the holder. To fold the holder and the support into a flat position in one plane with the slide member, the return member is pivotally mounted on the slide member, engages with a control cam of the support, and, when the slide member is pushed in, is pressed downwards on a fixed oblique surface and thereby folds up the holder and the support. The control cam extends in such a way that the return member locks the holder in its horizontal position.
