Providing the ergonomic comfort of a laptop, chassY is the world's first modular stand configurable to support any combination of tablets, portable gaming consoles, phones and keyboards.

Depending on where you are working or playing, simply slot the Spars into the appropriate holes that extend along the Rails, and then fit the short, medium or large Rests to support your devices. Now crack on comfortably! Move position?, say from sofa to bed or car, adjust chassY as per the illustrations below, or your way.

TIP: If your Apple Pencil or other pen is non-magnetic and cannot be snapped to your tablet, lay it across chassY for convenient access.

Each chassY component has a unique part number embossed on it to help with assembly and ordering spares. Here the Tall Rests (Part Number 07) are used to support a tablet (such as an iPad) at an angle suitable for comfortable viewing. The holes along the Rails (01) allow the Cross Spars (03) to be inserted at the optimum position for your ergonomic comfort.

That's clever! I'll have one.
- Apple Store customer, East Sussex, England

*chassY can handle all iPads, Surface Pro models and other tablets up to 13" and 1kg.

chassY in bed

Finally, tablet and wireless keyboard can co-exist in bed without flopping over, as happens when using some conventional tablet cases

chassY configured for use at an angle (with your knees up) supporting a tablet and wireless keyboard.
Here, the Medium Rests (06) ensure the tablet is at the ideal angle for viewing rested against your raised knees. The orange Short Rests (05) keep the keyboard in place. If you work or play in bed with your knees down, then attach the Tall Rests (07) to position your tablet at a higher viewing angle.

This is great, better than the flexi arm I used to hold my iPad up in bed.

Surface Pro 9 on chassY

Microsoft Surface Pro, Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet, Dell XPS 13, ASUS ROG Z13 and other kickstand equipped device users, rejoice!

Although ergonomically superior to laptops for creativity, where kickstand tablets fall down, literally, is on your lap. Thanks to chassY, you can now get productive on your comfiest chair or sofa.

By closing your device kickstand, chassY positions your tablet and keyboard further back over your knees for an ergonomically superior typing experience. With the extension Rails (01), chassY is long enough to accommodate the tablet plus Signature, Type Cover, Flex or other keyboards with trackpads.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 on chassY

chassY solves so many device positioning use cases

Here chassY has been configured to position a tablet below an external monitor at just the right height. The Medium Rests (06) at the front prevent chassY from sliding under the keyboard. This flexibility is what makes chassY so invaluable.

chassY in car

Fit the Medium Rests (06) as shown to support your tablet, resting chassY against the steering wheel. Place your keyboard on your lap. If need be, move the car seat back for more elbow room to type. Need we say, do not chassY whilst driving!

ERGONOMICS TIP: To reduce neck strain, position your tablet such that your line of sight is directly towards the centre of the screen with your head straight.

Compact chassY

To support your phone or tablet for media consumption, dock or store the unused extension Rails (01) and other components. Rest your device in the grooves on top of the Rails.

Portable monitors

High street retail
Thanks to the open design, chassY offers an affordable manner to present devices that are secured, without disrupting the customer experience. By carefully positioning the chassY rests, your staff can ensure security locks attached to the rear of the tablet do not negatively affect the screen angle.

Best of all, customers may enquire about chassY itself for their own use, offering your store an additional source of revenue.

The Spacers (08) are multi-purpose components, one use of which is to extend an aft (rear) Spar (03) for those with extra wide laps.

To assemble chassY in extended mode (for when using a keyboard with your device), ensure the female (slot) end of a Rail (01) is facing you. Slide the female end of a second Rail over the protruding (male) end of the front Rail. Now insert a Spar (03) into the hole in a Spacer (08). Next grab another Spar (03) and insert it through a hole in a Rail where you want to provide rigidity to your chassY and/or mount a Rest. Push the Spar into the Spacer you have inserted between the Rails (01). Finally fit the rests as appropriate. Feel free to experiment!

Can chassY be dismantled or modified to suit a different setup?

Absolutely! That is what chassY is all about. Move to a different position, say from lap to bed, or from car to lap? Simply re-arrange the Spars and Rests to create the most ergonomic arrangement for your devices. If you don't need two Rails joined together, simply decouple them and store the unused Rails in the shipping container, or dock them, as shown in the images above.

Can a cased device be mounted on chassY?

Yes. However, if the case adds excessive depth to your tablet, phone and/or keyboard, then you may need to use the Medium Rests (06) rather than the Short Rests (05) or Rail (01) grooves to support the front edge of your device(s).

Can a laptop be mounted on chassY?

No. chassY is not designed to support devices that weigh more than 1kg and those that get hot on the underside, this may damage some chassY components. Further, chassY has specifically been designed to re-create the benefits of a laptop for tablet users by uniting the screen and keyboard in a form factor that is ergonomically beneficial to your posture and productivity.

(With Extension Rails and Tall Rest fitted)

The Short Rests & Mini Spars are quite small (20 x 10 x 5mm & 40 x 5 x 5mm) and could pose a choking risk to small children and pets. Please keep any unused components in the shipping container, and if little ones want to play with chassY, say, assemble or 'dismantle' it, hide the small components first.
