Knex Laptop Stand and Cooling Pad Mods

About: I love to build with Knex and I especially love to make things that can be used to injure my brother.

These are a few little mods for my laptop stand.
I have side rails as suggested by (Atlas), I have a different option if you dont have the special parts for step 2, and I also have a mouse pad holder that will hold a full sized mouse pad!

Check out my original stand here: https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-Laptop-Stand-and-Cooling-Pad/  

I am currently working on how to make the stand adjustable and yet sturdy so it wont smash over.
let me no if yoiu have anything i could add!
