Reading Hurt Me for Years. This is Not the Case with a Tablet Holder

I chose the clamp because I knew it would easily attach to my thin wooden side table or metal bed frame and had no paint or finish that could be damaged by the clamp. Some people also attach it to a headboard.

It was perfect for reading in bed or on the side of my couch. The Lamicall isn’t so long that I had to add a loop to make it sit far enough from my eye to read comfortably, and I usually felt like I had just enough wiggle room to fit it perfectly in my preferred position Place reading area. I could keep the text size on my Kindle small and put it right next to my face or move it further back if I wanted. It floated beautifully above or near my head whether I was lying in bed or sitting on the couch while my son played nearby.

The base clamp is made of lightweight plastic and attaches with a screw cap that sits on top of the clamp, which I liked better than one that clamps itself – especially since I have tiny grasping hands in my house. The closure for the Kindle itself is also made of a lightweight plastic, but was still sturdy and secure. You can also rotate the top clamp to get the perfect angle.

The arm neck is the most resilient part of the arm: although it requires a little effort to move and tilt the arm, this force and resistance prevents it from falling forward or slipping while reading. Despite the resistance, this Kindle holder is still sufficiently adjustable and can be moved in any direction you want.

To store it, I usually just slide it from where it’s clamped to the wall. It is neither foldable nor fragile. So if you want to keep it out of sight when not in use, you’ll need a closet or enough space to store the 3-foot shape. It was a little strange seeing it floating alone in the living room, but when I used it as a bed stand I didn’t find it intrusive and simply pushed it against the wall when I no longer needed it.

It is designed as a universal tablet holder and offers space for tablets up to the 11-inch iPad Pro. It can also accommodate a Nintendo Switch, among other popular e-readers. (If only I had that in 2020!) It doesn’t have the right dimensions to hold a bulky Steam Deck on its own, but I still used it to support a Steam Deck and take the strain off my hands and wrists even though it wasn’t is stable enough to float like a Kindle or iPad. It can also carry smartphones and reading with a Kindle or my iPhone on the Lamicall stand was similarly enjoyable.

The stand can’t slip, but it can’t slip Is easy to crowd around, and I wouldn’t call it a freehand read – at least not on its own.
