I love the flowers(don't you wish you could get rid of the Stanley Fatmax logo?). It just doesn't fit the decor Razz

Easy support for your Fatmax lid!

Post by conniemaks5 on Fri Jun 22, 2012 2:00 am

I made a support for my fatmax lid. I used 2 old vacumn cleaner attachments. I sawed one end off to approximate length and then wittled the ends until it fit. It took me about a hour (while I watched tv). It is easy to put together and take apart. I can throw it in my fatmax so I don't have to carry anything extra. It stays in place and it sure makes my lid a lot sturdier! [img][/img][img][/img][img][/img][img][/img][img][/img]

I use two pieces of foam core boards taped together, cut to the right height, and I place the top edge in the groove on the lid, and the bottom edge up against the tires... sits at an angle like: \ . the foam core makes it light weight and easy to carry. I made two sets.... one can be used as the table top and the other can be used as the table support.

That is SO cool! I think that is just the perfect solution and it doesn't add any weight either. YAY Connie!
That's my biggest issue so far. Trying to find something that is portable and contained, fits in my car and I'm able to lift it in and out without causing further injury to my painting shoulder. You may have just cured that issue and I am ever so grateful. I am still using a laptop briefcase bag and keeping all the colors in the order of the rainbow so I can find them quickly.

Another good idea. Thank you Lorie. Most times I have to park a fair distance and don't feel comfortable leaving my stuff unattended to go get the rest so I need a all-in-one-trip solution. ;D

I'm glad the idea helped you Gr8ful. I toyed with other ideas of what could be lightwieght, come apart and easy without having to carry anything extra. I looked at everything from tent supports to swiffer sweeper handles, lol. I use my lid as a table. So far I think this will work fine for me. Great Idea too Lorie! Do you have advertisments on your support board?
I will probably stick with my support since I am somewhat lazy and don't like to carry things...lol. Here is how the support comes apart and fits in the top.[img][/img]

I do have it decorated Connie, the support board is black with the blue polka dot duck tape on all four edges. On the front, in big metallic letters, I have: Face Painting by Lorie

I think I'll decorate the reverse side also.

I like your idea too.

So I broke down and finally bought the FatMax. Thanks Connie! I've already had to use it twice and other than the flimsy handle, I am very happy with it. I'll be making one of those supports this summer for sure.

How to stabilise the lid

Post by painty_d on Wed Jan 21, 2015 9:15 pm

[quote="LillyW"]Well, you could drill TWO of the curtain rod holders on either side of the lid. But, then you need to carry TWO of the rods as well.


Hi all, I'm new to this forum. I was just wanting to put in my two cents worth regarding stabilizing the lid for support. I actually wrapped velro around one end of two tent poles (parts of tent poles. The skinny new ones you get that are flexible not the old school metal ones) and the other side of the velcro into the "V" groove in to top of the lid of the fatmax and the velcro "holds onto" the lid when it's open and the tent poles sit on either side of the lid and stabilize it. The poles are very light weight and easy to carry.

Thanks for the suggestion, I might give the tent poles a try.  Mine does't seem to need the support, but it probably wouldn't hurt.  I have extra tent parts from an old vending tent I could use.
