I would definitely recommend the lapstacker to other wheelchair users. It doesn't matter whether the item you try to carry on your lap is large or small, it is likely to fall off if you have to brake suddenly, manoeuvre over a small obstacle or tackle uneven terrain. With the lapstacker, this is no longer an issue. I originally intended this mostly to transport a laptop in a bag, but it has so many more uses. Mike and Tim were incredibly helpful to get the right brackets for my wheelchair and their response to enquiries is very fast. My only regret is not buying the lapstacker sooner!

This product is a game changer. For years I have said I need an extra arm for carrying stuff while I wheel, this is the extra hand I needed. Installation was easy and the LapStacker does exactly what it is supposed to do. 10/10 recommend to anyone who uses a wheelchair

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.
