The Read Rite II document holder is one of our favorites. It is very solid and has no problem holding heavy files or books. It is also very flexible and can be used on the desktop or in-line. It is height and angle adjustable, and when set at the front edge of the desk, the easel can be lowered below the work surface, allowing you to place it directly in front of you without blocking your view of the monitor. This is referred to as in-line, as it sits between the monitor and keyboard when the keyboard is on an adjustable platform.
The Read Rite II comes with two sizes, 11" or 17" wide, and can be ordered with a standard 1" deep ledge or a palm support that doubles as a ledge and a writing support. Currently, the product comes in black.
