Adapting a Tray for Under the Tv.

4 Materials
25 Hours
I had two trays left over after I put both monitors on the desk at eye level. So, I needed one under the tv. But it had legs just a bit too far apart to fit on my tv table. So, I fixed it!!
After setting the tray on the table, I realized it was just too wide, and I mean by 1"!!
I knew I needed something to keep the legs from splaying out. I thought of glass nuggets, jar lids, and finally came up with clothes pins.
When uncoupled, they were the perfect size to keep the legs straight. With some E-6000 glue and scotch tape, it was a 24 hour wait to let them dry.
Then the tray was put to the test. It might look a bit crooked, but the table has a shorter leg is all. I say it took 25 hours but that is because it had to dry good. If you have another kind of fast acting glue, it would take less time.
And here is the other, which didn't need any help at all. These trays are the coolest and I am happy they got to stay in my home. N-JOY!!
