I went with the clamp since I knew it might be simple to hook onto my skinny picket facet desk or metallic mattress body, and neither had a paint or end that may be broken by the clamp. Some of us additionally connect it to a headboard.

It was good for studying in mattress or on the facet of my sofa. The Lamicall isn’t so lengthy that I wanted so as to add a loop to make it sit far sufficient away from my eye for snug studying, and normally I felt like I had simply sufficient slack to completely place it inside my most popular studying vary. I might hold my Kindle’s textual content measurement tiny and put it proper subsequent to my face, or push it again farther if I wished. It floated properly above or close to my head, whether or not I used to be mendacity in mattress or sitting up on the sofa whereas my son performed close by.

The bottom clamp is made of sunshine plastic you safe with a screw high sitting on high of the clamp, which I preferred as a substitute of 1 that pinches by itself–particularly since there are tiny grabby palms in my residence. The clasp for the Kindle itself can also be made from a lightweight plastic, however was nonetheless secure and safe. Plus, you may rotate that higher clamp to get the proper angle.

The neck of the arm is essentially the most resistant a part of it: It does take a bit effort to maneuver and angle the arm, however that power and resistance are what retains it from falling ahead or misplaced whilst you learn. Even with the resistance, this Kindle holder remains to be a lot adjustable and goes in any course you want.

To retailer it, I normally simply push it out of the way in which towards the wall from wherever it’s clamped. It isn’t foldable, nor does it break down, so if you would like it out of sight if you aren’t utilizing it you’ll want a closet or lengthy sufficient area to retailer its 3-foot kind. It was a bit bizarre to see it floating alone in the lounge, however I didn’t discover it obtrusive once I used it as a mattress stand and easily pushed it towards the wall once I was executed utilizing it.

It’s designed to be a common pill holder, so it’s large enough to carry tablets as much as the 11-inch iPad Pro. It could possibly maintain a Nintendo Change, too, together with different fashionable e-readers. (If solely I had this in 2020!) It’s not the precise dimensions to carry a bulky Steam Deck by itself, however I nonetheless used it to assist me prop up a Steam Deck and take weight off my palms and wrists, although it’s not secure sufficient to drift like a Kindle or iPad. It’s capable of maintain up smartphones, too, and it was equally snug to learn with both a Kindle or my iPhone on the Lamicall stand.

Not Fairly Fingers-Free

Whereas it will not fall misplaced, the stand is simple to jostle, and I wouldn’t name it hands-free studying—not less than not by itself.
