None came with instructions and the prices to buy coupled with the postage was plain silly so I decided to pester my dad for a pipe cutter and head to the DIY store. I couldn’t find any instructions on making one myself so this was a mixture of good luck, a general interest in DIY and watching home programs.
To make this for yourself you’re going to have to check the measurements for your laptop. I took the length and added a cm extra on (it’s best to have too much than cut it too short!) I then placed the laptop on the 2 side pipes and measure how wide I’d like it and cut it to size. From there it’s very easy and just requires a little time and patience.
**NOTE** If you choose a 15mm pipe get 15mm elbows and stop ends, same with 20mm pipe choose 20mm fittings.
