Got away from the IKEA laptop stand (it was too bulky to work with) and built my own holder fer the SpinClik desktop iPad stand. I modified the original desktop stand to my own specs by installing a ball mount on the base and replaced the 6" shaft with a 9" shaft. With the new desktop stand...I can easily set the iPad to any angle I need it fer...which made it perfect fer my current setup.
The holder is made from an 12" x 18" Coroplast sign and tied together with zipties. The iPad stand just slips into the pocket and the yellow rope supports the iPad from falling down too far. I still have to fab a more permanent upper support strap instead of yellow rope that I used to do the mock up. Both ball clamps are loosened so it's not too stiff and allows fer movement if needed. Drilled two holes into the holder so the headrest shafts slips over the holder and keeps it in place.
The primary purpose of this mod is to keep my son's head facing forward instead of leaning forward/down to see the iPad in his lap (not good in case of an accident).
My son knows to how to adjust the seat with the step pad so it shouldn't be a problem to git the seat just right...
