Laptop Pockets between dinette benches

We wanted someplace to stash our laptops for charging without cords all over the rig, so I modified the design of some magazine holders and hung them against the rear wall of our 21. The transformers fit between two laptops and the cords plug into the curb side outlet a few inches away. The rear paneled wall leans back 20 degrees below the ETI screw covers.

I have a footrest/table brace between our benches, so I attached the holders to that. Would be simple to have the back side an inch taller and re-use the ETI mounting screws, but I was too lazy to take things apart.

Nice mod Charlie, any ideas on protecting the back of the 12v outlets exposed in our units, particularly the upper cabinets. I worry that something stored may damage the outlet.

I use formed ABS cabinet dividers, butted up against the side of the projecting outlet body in the cabinet. Profile is shown about 2/3 of the way down this page:

Thanks for the inspiration. I should have done this months ago.
