I have MS & only the use of one hand and my head. We looked at over the bed tables at the local medical supply stores. Their cheapest was well over $100 and had a shorter length table -- I wasn't impressed. Well when you're working or eating in bed or wheelchair, you don't want something that doesn't come fully across. I worried about stability, quality, strength, ease of movement, whether or not it would roll under my adjustable bed. Did I want one that tilted for reading? One with edges to contain spills? I kind of wanted one with a lifting table top that had a vanity underneath.
But I was so pleased when this one arrived. Good quality, well built, stable, rolls easily, fit easily under my bed, easily holds the weight and has the room for what I put on it -- a lap top computer & mouse, book, the weight of my arm resting on it. I use it mostly at night for the convenience of having Kleenex, medicine, TV controls, phone, water etc at my fingertips. I like it higher & angled at night so I don't feel trapped. My husband says it adjusts and rolls easily. With our setup, it has to be on my left side and I have little use of that hand but I can push it out of my way. Attractive dark wood grain vinyl top cleans easily.
What I learned: Tilting for book reading would mean clearing everything off. I like this better. Edges would limit my space and the ease moving things. Vanity types would have the same problem as tilted and are vastly more expensive. More than you wanted to know I'll bet. Sorry I wrote so much.
In step 2 of the Assembly Instructions (on the one sheet of paper other than your Amazon invoice that comes with this product), make sure that when you install the two bolts (numbered 6 on the card the bolts come on), be sure to also install the two washers (also numbered 6 on the card).
In step 3, the instruction says to "INSERT BOLT& NUT (4) TO FASTEN THE TRIP LEVER & TOP BRACKET." It should instead tell you to install the long bolt numbered 14 - not 4 - on the card, and the nut that is numbered 4 (and which is the sole nut that comes with this unit).
Step 4 is self-explanatory. Just make sure that you note that the side of the base you will insert the bolts/bolt-plate/bolt-sleeves assembly into is the side where there are holes for the casters (you'll also notice that the two holes for the bolt assembly on this side are larger than they are on the side that does not have holes for the casters).
Step 5 tells you to install the casters, which is a simply matter of snapping (with a bit of effort) into place. But be sure to note in the diagram that the two casters that have "stoppers" - or we could call them brakes - go on the end of the base closest to the column.
Also note that if after assembling the table you do not release the caster stoppers or brakes, it will not roll, and if you are pushing it on a carpet you may think the problem is the carpet when in fact it is that the stoppers or brakes have not been released to allow the casters to freely roll (I made this mistake and after releasing the stoppers the unit rolled smoothly over a couple of different carpets).
Also in Step 5, you are told to "REPLACE WITH CHROME SCREW (14).Read more ›
I have 2 of them!!!!!Awesome product. I recommend it.
UPDATE: I ordered a second table for myself. The original vendor no longer provides this product, and the new product is not the same! I should have paid closer attention when Amazon recommended it as an alternative. It seems to be a good product, but it is not the same as the one I wrote my original review for. This one does not tilt, and is designed to approach from one direction only (ie from the right side of the bed, not the left). I'm disappointed. Unfortunately, Amazon will not let me change my original rating.
