The LapStacker changes the game!! If you're a wheelchair user there is no need to think twice about investing in this product. It is everything that I have been looking for in the 5 years being in the chair. As a college student, this product has been especially helpful with carrying my textbooks on my lap and giving me that extra security that it won't fall! Again, you NEED this in your life! And HUGE thank you Adaptdefy for the amount of times their product has saved me from dropping and breaking things.

A clever addition to my wheelchair that doesn’t add a lot of weight but adds a tremendous amount of value - whenever I use it my friends always ask “why wasn’t this invented earlier” I keep finding more and more creative ways to use it! 10/10 Five stars would (and have) recommend!

Mike’s Lapstacker has truly been a dream come true to me in my life. I was the passenger in a motorcycle accident at the age of 18 that paralyzed me from the waist down. Going from an able-bodied lifestyle where things are 100 time more convenient in every-way possible to one where everything challenges you is not easy but it’s also not a bad thing. To me, my disability has been a blessing in so many ways and meeting Mike-the founder of Adaptdefy, is one of those blessings. Mike is all about making the world a better place, especially for people with disabilities and it’s no surprise to me that he invented such an incredible product, The Lapstacker. It’s not everyday you come across a product made specifically for your needs as a person who uses a wheelchair, so when you do, it can be pretty life changing. The Lapstacker not only saves you time because you can push faster knowing that the items on your lap are secure, but it is also a huge confidence booster as it increases your carrying ability and your trust in yourself to do certain tasks you may otherwise not try. I wish I could give a Lapstacker to every wheelchair user I know.

The LapStacker is a total game changer! I’ve been able to cut my trips to the grocery store in half because I can carry twice as much as I could before, which has already saved me so much time. And I’m saving money because I'm no longer breaking things when they fall off my lap. The LapStacker also makes traveling with extra luggage a breeze.

It’s easy to install and even easier to use. I don’t know how I’ve managed the last 8 years as a wheelchair user without it!
