I must admit that this product has been a lifesaver for my ancient neck and shoulders as I diamond paint. After a bit of research, based on reasonably priced,I purchased the A2 size from Amazon (AU) . It was delivered earlier than I expected and wrapped very secure. I found that the item was light and easy to move about, and could be folded up and placed out of the way when visitors turn up unexpected. The elastic band is very useful for those smaller DP's but the weight of larger ones, do tend to slip. Thank goodness for "bulldog clips" I say. One warning - When unpacking the easel be sure you don't cut the elastic band, I caught myself just in time. I also found the shelf is great for DP pens and wax or us oldies who forget where things are!).
