"As Is" Couch Tray Table And Organizer by Lori Greiner
Love my little table
Ordered mine as an "as is" and just love it ! I did as another customer suggested and added a piece of rubber liner underneath and on top so nothing would slide, then secured with upholstery tacks to the arm of the chair. It now works perfect and for the price was a great buy ! I feel pretty smart with all my chair side items close at hand. I will add though that I had the extra items on hand so didn't have to make any add'l purchases. If it was twicked a little it'd be perfect !
This is by far the best invention EVER! Such a handy way to have things at your fingertip...all the time! Fits well over my Lazy-Boy arm. Holds my pens and my glasses in the pockets, even a little bottle of Advils! My book and my phone on the top...and there is even a zipper compartment where you can keep things like a tape measurer or little note pads! Have bought a couple of exra...ESPECIALLY AT THIS PRICE...for future use...and for giving as gifts!
Did not fit couch or love seat arms
I thought these would be the answer to having 2 ends w/no table or anything to put a beer can or wine glass on. These would have worked but not sturdy at all. The tray part is very small. Sent them back. Sorry Lori.....
My husband and I love this product. It's so useful in our family room. It holds our beverage while watching tv. In addition to other things like eyeglasses, cellphone, remotes, pen and paper etc. fantastic product!!!
~♥~ With tacks & liner, very functional ~♥~
This is a good concept that needed a few little tweaks to help it function well. I give it 4 1/2 stars because it needed a little help. And, the best part is the "as is" are almost half the price of the regular.
I used clear headed upholstery tacks screwed in across the bottom of both cloth sides.. This keeps the tray in place when the pockets have items in them. The tacks are very reasonably priced at sewing stores or in sewing notions departments.
I also used Rubbermaid's thin rubberized shelf liner that has grid-like holes in to line the tray and put underneath to keep the fabric in place.I purchase the liner in the dollar store .
I cut a few pieces in the shape of the tray so that they can be removed, cleaned & have a spare while the other is drying. I cut another piece to the length of the fabric and a little wider than the width of my chair's arm.
They are also great to use on arms of couches and chairs in trailers, RV, etc. that have little room for tables.
The item isn't an elegant touch, but a functional thing that keeps items within reach. It also helps to keep the arms clean.
It was an easy fix for a few dollars that makes life a bit easier!
