I start work on Wednesday . I got a few gps programs in my laptop . Are there any ideas or ways to make a laptop stand so its good and secure and doesnt fall around or get bumped around without having to drill holes or do any other stuff to the company truck ??
How To Make Laptop Stand ??
Page 1 of 2
I'm curruently making a laptop stand because I'm 75% sure I'll have to go back over the road if I don't get a job before my unemployment runs out.
After some trial and error I came up with this...Go to Lowe's and purchase
2 union joints for swiveling purposes
2 floor flanges to attach to floor and laptop base
45 degree and or 90 degree elbows
Various threaded pipe of different lengths (however you want it customized)
With different elbows and lengths of pipe you can customize it how you want.All my pipes and joints are 3/8 diameter galvanized (very strong)here's what i did
1.Attach 2 ft long threaded pipe to floor flange
2.Attach union joint (swivel joint) to the top of the pipe
3.Attach 45 or 90 degree elbow (whatever angle you need) to the top of swivel joint
4.Attach another threaded pipe to the elbow (this will be your swiveling arm so add any length you need.
5.Attach another elbow to the end of the arm (45 or 90 degree whatever you used before)
6.Attach the last union joint to the elbow and the last flange to the union
7.I stll haven't made a platform you but whatever I use,I will screw it to the flange and it will also swivel
2 flanges,2 union joints,2 elbows, 2 pipes long and short
It'll cost you about $40 or less to make,much cheaper than the Ram or Jotto mounts
Yep best bet. I mounted mine to the seat belt bolt. Moves up and down with the air seat. Probably be less than $40 if you get everything at the hardware store. I bought mine off EBay for around $40. It had a plexiglass top. If I had to do it again I would just make the top out of plywood.Last edited: Apr 1, 2010
Hubby bought me a neat little "homework stand" that tilts for $19.95.
It works great while I'm sitting up front in the passenger seat while hubby is driving. I can play on my laptop, and still be up front to converse with him.
But, I don't think it would be stable enough for what you want.
