Assembly – Position the Crosspiece over the Riser with the word “TOP” on the Crosspiece facing up. Slide the Crosspiece into the V Notches on the Risers. Use the outer two slots on the Crosspiece for wider laptops and the inner two slots for smaller laptops.
Place Your Stand On Any Flat & Stable Surface
Option 1 – Cantilevered Over The Edge
While in the “Cantilevered” placement the stand is secured and extended over the edge of the work surface by engaging the bottom rubber strips and the Edge Receiving Notch.
Option 2 – On Top
While in the “On Top” placement the rubber strips are not in contact with the work surface & the stand is free to glide around on the “Lateral Movement Contact Points”. These contact points are designed for easy re-positioning of the laptop on the work surface. They also provide enough resistance to prevent the stand from moving backwards while typing in the “On Top”position.
* Frequent changes between these two placements encourages active ergonomics.
* On very smooth surfaces (glass for example) too much force while typing could cause the stand to slide away on the work surface while in the “On Top” placement.
* Never leave your laptop unattended while in the cantilevered placement or while on an airplane, moving vehicle or when other persons / pets could bump the stand.
* Never extend the stand past the arrows on the “Edge Receiving Notch”. The stand is very stable when the arrows are directly over the front edge of the work surface.
Moving the laptop while on the stand: Grasp the front of the stand from the bottom with the forefingers in the “edge receiving notch”, while putting pressure on the top, front area of the laptop with the thumbs.
Storage: The parts are designed to interlock & slip into the side pocket of a laptop carrying case. While holding the risers together evenly, slide the crosspiece dovetails into the matching slots on the risers. Once assembled for storage, the snug fit of a laptop case pocket holds everything together securely – no extra carrying case or straps needed.
