With popcorn, a laptop, or a good book, TV trays make it easy to relax on the couch. When getting up from the sofa, stand assists alleviate pressure on the body. When you combine the two, you get a TV tray with a stand assist, which is a dream come true for people with restricted mobility or who need an extra hand when changing from a seated to a standing position.TV trays with stands help to preserve individuality and integrity while still offering the convenience of a built-in tray. While there are many models available for purchase online, not all of them are designed with feature and quality in mind.We've put together a list of our favorite TV trays with stand assists on the market right now, as well as a full buying guide with important features to consider.
When deciding on the best TV tray, keep the following factors in mind:Is This TV Tray Compatible With Furniture?A stand assist may be used for sofas, benches, and even recliners if the dimensions are right. Although most stand assists are flexible, that doesn't mean they'll match every form of seating arrangement. This is particularly true for TV trays with stand-assists. The foundation must be secured by the sofa or chair legs in order to provide support for the user and the tray.Are there any restrictions on the size and weight of TV trays?After you've confirmed that the TV tray with stand assist can be assembled correctly, you can go over the product specifics in greater detail.Most models with TV trays have a maximum weight capacity of 250 pounds.We reviewed simple couch stand assists with higher weight restrictions if you need a product that can bear more weight.Another thing to bear in mind is the tray size and weight cap. The tray must be able to swing out of the way in order for the product to be a combination TV tray and stand assist.Although this is convenient, it also limits the tray's size and weight capacity. If you want a bigger, more sturdy tray, you may want to buy stand assists and TV trays separately.Try bringing together the TV trays.Before you buy something, think about who will be putting it together, particularly if it's a gift for someone you love. One thing to think about is whether or not all of the tools needed for assembly are included. Stands for TV trays must be robust, and for some, firmly fastening sections together can be difficult.Furthermore, the foundation must be secured under the legs of the sofa or chair, which would necessitate some heavy lifting.While this may be a one-person job for some, we suggest enlisting the help of another person to measure and assemble the pieces, particularly if the parts need some force to loosen when first put together. If the parts are especially stiff, a simple spray of WD-40 can make them fit together more easily.
