Introduction: Laptop Strap Support - for Couch or Bed
This is something i made after months of straining my neck while looking down at my laptop when sitting on the couch.
It only really works if you sit like i do when on the couch, slumped back with feet resting on the coffee table..
But, it's also handy for use in bed.
In both instances it helps reduce neck strain, keeps the screen at eye level and keyboard easy to see & use
Step 1: What You Need
Approx 53" x 1" cotton webbing
Two lengths of 3 1/2 " x 1/2 " cotton webbing
Sewing Machine or Needle and thread.
Step 2: Start Sewing...
Grab the two ends of your long piece of webbing and overlap 1". Sew.
Step 3: More Sewing
Position your 'loop of webbing with the overlapped sewn bit at the top. Make a sort of rectangle. (images will explain better)
The bottom two corners are where you'll sew your two smaller pieces of webbing.
Between these corners there needs to be 11" of webbing. This could vary depending on laptop size.
Step 4: Nearly Done
Position your two smaller bits of webbing ready to sew.
It needs to overlap approx 1/2" over the larger webbing and have 3 1/2 " betweem each sew point... (again a picture is worth a thousand words..)
Sew into place.
Step 5: Ready to Use!
Now that you've sewn everything, all you have to do is loop the top half over your knees, position your laptop and insert it's front corners into the loops.
I hope this comes in handy for a few people.
We have a be nice policy.
