Slide Away Work Top for Computer Stations: U.S. Patent # 6,802,264
The Slide Away Work Top provides the desk top space that is needed with computer furniture that has a slide-out keyboard shelf.
With the keyboard shelf pulled out, the computer operator is set at an uncomfortable distance from the furniture top. There is no convenient place to write or to place a book. The Slide Away Work Top provides a work surface that can be temporarily moved aside by simply pushing it to slide the most part of it off and pulling it to slide onto the keyboard shelf. In particular, a book, which is generally awkward to hold and read over the keyboard, can easily be moved aside temporarily.
The Slide Away Work Top is adjustable to fit computer furniture tops that are between 5/8" to 2" thick and adjustable to fit keyboard shelves that are pulled out at different distances. Adjustments are made only once -- when the Slide Away Work Top is first placed on the pull-out shelf and each of the two movable parts under the Slide Away Work Top are fastened at the proper position. The only tool needed is a phillips or flat-head screwdriver.
After the proper adjustments are made, the Slide Away Work Top can be installed simply by placing it on the pulled-out keyboard shelf, and it can be removed by lifting it off the keyboard shelf. It's that easy! The Slide Away Work Top is designed so that it can be used by a right-handed or a left-handed person. Two Slide Away Work Tops can be used at the same time; for a right-handed person, one Slide Away Work Top can be placed at the left side for a book and the other Slide Away Work Top can be placed at the right side to write. Two Slide Away Work Tops can be used as a cover for the keyboard and shelf.
