Photos of Portable Magnetic Laptop / Utility Shelves in use
It’s a Push Button how difficult could it be?
Elevator push buttons were once simple.
Not any more but we have Fabian Bravo the button programming wizard with the tools and the know how.
Stewart Spencer “Stew-Baby” is so important that his phone calls get put on speaker for everyone to hear and has a dedicated shelf.
Why won’t this old elevator run?!?
Wait…. should that motor be somehow coupled to the gearbox?
Something doesn’t look right… better plug up the computer!
Well that doesn’t happen everyday. Thats how you know you’re on an old cab, its magnetic.
Well that and the pull gate
Makes a nice utility shelf but I wish it were a recessed top.
I hate to have to repeatedly grab tools & material off the floor, even before I had a bad back.
And I hate to have a bad back because I like the active life.
Thats why I like my back saving carts and shelves!
I have found that I use these shelves much more for manuals, prints and material than for laptops.
Considering how useful this Portable Magnetic Utility Shelf if for holding material, I now recommend using 6 magnets on the top for the option to hold heavier material including Milwaukee Organizers.
Even though the elevator cab is not magnetic, the Portable Utility Shelf brackets fit between the handrail and cab creating an elevator shelf.
I don’t do the same task everyday so I need manuals and prints.
I have always had deep admiration for people like my supervisor who didn’t need manuals or prints when in the field.
I would be a millionaire if I had that miracle talent!
Oh snap Fabian got the UPGRADE!
We added a Velcro Cable Bag to Fabian’s Standard V2 Laptop Shelf
And he got a companion shelf for a set.
Its gonna get jelly around 32.
Yeah, why not?

“There can be only 15”
From me at least not counting the prototype and full magnet demo model.

I built several to test out different variations and have sold some to co-workers to help recoup my expenses but I have no intention of building and selling these. I want people to build their own and customize to their needs and preferences.
My time will be better spent working on new ideas.
Version 1 Laptop Shelf from original idea in year 2000.
I made the prototype then 4 additional variations for co-workers, each better than the last.
The Fifth and final one turned out excellent and I really would like to make one for myself but didn’t because Version 2 is superior and easier to make.
Recipients of Version 1
- V1 Prototype: Kevin Gittemeier
- V1 KG001: Erik Ross
- V1 KG002: Stacy Manus
- V1 KG003: Eric King
- V1 KG004: James “Bud” O’Neill
What about Version 3?
Magnetic Laptop Version 3 will put Versions 1 and 2 to shame. It will be more than than just a Laptop Shelf or Utility Shelf yet Version 3 will be thinner, lighter and more compact.
I have to complete some other projects before starting Magnetic Laptop Shelf Version 3 but I am optimistic I will complete V3 before the Cole-Bar ships!
