The Screen Caddy is a shelf that's made to be attached to the back of any flat-screen television or desktop computer monitor. This shelf measures 13.4 by 6.5 inches, making it fairly compact, but each one has been designed to hold up to five pounds of small objects. Depending on what type of device you attach it to, you may want to use it to store remote controls, office supplies, other digital devices (like your smartphone) or something else entirely.
The cost of Screen Caddy is $12.99 plus $6.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Screen Caddy at the discounted price of only $6.99 for a total price of $26.97.

To attach your Screen Caddy to the television or computer monitor of your choice, slide the shelf's metal lip over the front of the device and leave the legs resting against the back. Once this is done, the shelf should be flat and parallel with your floor, and you should be able to see the metal lip as you look at your television or computer monitor straight-on.
In order to adjust the fit of your shelf so that it's resting as securely against your television or monitor as possible, use the knob located at the top of one leg. As you twist the knob in either direction, the shelf's legs will move and either loosen or tighten the fit of the shelf. Keep in mind that in almost all cases, since you certainly won't want your shelf to fall off, a tighter fit will be better than a looser one.
The last thing to do, once your shelf is attached tightly enough, is to add a select few small objects to the shelf. If you've got multiple remote controls, they may end up taking up all the space, but one of these shelves can also be a great place to store things like books, glasses, and writing utensils. Regardless of what you decide to add, don't overload the shelf with more than a few things, since it could break if it's forced to hold more than five pounds at once.
You won't need to have a certain brand of flat-screen television in order to attach your Screen Caddy to it, as this type of shelf will attach to any television of the flat-screen variety. It'll also attach to any desktop computer monitor, as long as its screen is flat. Therefore, if you get a new flat-screen computer or television, you'll be able to move your current shelf to it without a fuss, instead of having to look for a new shelf.
Each Screen Caddy is black, the same shade as most flat-screen televisions and desktop computer monitors, so it's unlikely that the look of your shelf will clash with the look of any of these. Plus, a black shelf will tend to look good in any room, no matter what the rest of the decor looks like.
The surface of each of these shelves is of a non-slip nature, which means that you won't need to be extremely concerned about objects that you place on your shelf falling off. Instead, you'll be able to place fairly expensive objects like remote controls and smartphones on top of it without assuming that they might slide off and get damaged.
If at any point, you're not using your Screen Caddy at all, you'll be able to fold it flat for storage purposes. The legs will fold in and leave you with just a flat, tray-like device that you'll be able to slide under a couch or an easy chair until you need it again. This shelf's ability to fold flat will also come in handy if you need to transport the shelf to a different location but are lacking a ton of vehicle space.
If you don't have a shelf like this attached to your computer monitor or television, your couch, coffee table or desk may end up covered in office supplies, remotes, or other small objects. By installing one of these shelves, however, you'll be able to get some of that clutter off your furniture and onto the shelf instead, where it can sit inconspicuously. Without cluttered furniture, any room may look better than it previously did, and you may not have to search as long for a particular object when you need it.
As you may have gleaned from the information above, you'll never need any tools to install a Screen Caddy, as any adjustments can be completed with each shelf's built-in dial. You could enlist the help of a second person to help you put up this type of shelf, but you'll likely be fully capable of doing it with your own two hands.
The Screen Caddy is an ideal storage device to be used in a student's dorm room. Since these rooms often have just one desk and maybe a chest of drawers, residents may lack storage space, but one of these shelves will be able to hold at least a few essential objects. A student could attach their shelf to their computer monitor and use to store pens and highlighters or fasten it to their television to be used as a small bookshelf. The possibilities are almost endless!
Each Screen Caddy is more than a foot long, which is quite a generous length, but each one is also just over half a foot wide. If you've got a fairly wide object to store on your shelf, such as a textbook, it may end up hanging over the shelf's edges. Even taking into account the non-slip surface of the shelf, this may increase the chances of the object falling off.
Most televisions and desktop computer monitors have flat screens these days, which means that your Screen Caddy will be compatible with almost any device of this sort. Nonetheless, if you've got a very old computer monitor or television that doesn't have a completely flat screen, you won't be able to attach this type of shelf to it properly.
Some people, when trading in a thicker, older and boxier television for a flat-screen, might obtain a new free-standing shelf on which to place the things that used to sit on top of the TV. There's really no need to obtain a fairly large shelf for just a few objects, though, when you can attach a compact Screen Caddy to your television instead. If you think you might need a free-standing shelf on which to store a few photos or knickknacks, you can cross that off your list, too, as each Screen Caddy can also hold those.
