Widget Wedgy

Introduction: Widget Wedgy

About: Inventing new and unique products for people, robots (if they ask nicely), and a few plants.

I wanted to keep my electronic devices off the surface of the workbench to protect them from debris, alien autopsy fluids, and delicious sauces. So I came up with this idea to elevate them to safety and still have the flexibility to move and rotate them around the workspace as needed.

Step 1: Parts and Tools

  1. Wedge and Base: Download and print (STL attached).
  2. Removable Foam Adhesive Squares or Tape: Bulk, Alternative
  3. Vinyl bumpers: 1/2" by 1/16"
  4. Isopropyl Alcohol wipe

Step 2: Assemble

  1. Stick a vinyl bumper on each one of the posts on the angled side of the wedge. Press and hold for 10 seconds with firm pressure to set the adhesive.
  2. Stick 1 or more removable adhesive squares to the bottom of the base. Press and hold for 10 seconds with firm pressure to set the adhesive.
  3. Remove the protective sheets from the adhesive squares and stick the base where desired. Press and hold for 10 seconds with firm pressure to set the adhesive.
  4. Wipe each of the bumpers clean with an alcohol wipe to remove any oils/dust.

Step 3: Use

Simply place the device (widget) on top of the vinyl bumpers. Put the wedge in the base to allow secure, easy swiveling. Remove the wedge from the base to allow sliding to reposition in your workspace as needed. Enjoy.
