My Game Lap Desk
« on: 10:42 AM - 02/15/16 »
Hello:

Just doping by to say thanks for a great product. 3 years ago I had a accident at work, end up loosing my left hand index finger, for me is very difficult to play with console controllers, thanks to the XIM4 I can finally have some decent play time.

He is my Game Lap Desk set-up:



Controller mount is actually 2 cell phone magnetic holders


Wire management

Yes.

I used 3M double sticky tape to mount controller..... they came extra with the cell phone mounts, The XIM 4 is installed with 4 magnets  / 1 metal plate, the Mouse Pad is glue to the Lap desk with double epoxy.

Cool. I think I'm gonna change my controller mount so it's like yours. I found the magnetic mount on amazon. The controller stand I was using blocks use of the controllers microphone port.

Moto - have you removed the mouse pad that was fixed to the desk ?

Yeah, I had too.

I used a dremmel to cut the plastic, that will leave the desk with a hole... I fill the hole with double epoxy, and glued the mouse pad over it.

Was the hole the size of the original mouse pad ?

Yeah, I was careful not to cut too much. Mouse pad is also strong enough, after the double epoxy dry, the mouse pad feels like part of the lap desk, solid and flat.
