Let’s get started!
You wish these positions to be locked in place, so look for an appropriate position to arrange the neodymium magnets and a corresponding ferromagnetic metal part. For example, an iron angle attached to the lower part of the new support and two magnets located at the respective positions at the upper part of the support will do the job. You may also use the guiderails or extensions to attach the magnets.
In case your copy holder is not already provided with an anti-slip component, position the rubber feet at the front most and rear most positions beyond the strips of your new support. Make sure that all rubber feet make contact with your desk.
Now, check the function of your file butler! Does it ride smoothly? Do the rubber feet prevent slipping? Is the force of the magnet sufficient? You can lower the magnetic force by putting a variable number of stickers on the surface of the respective magnet.
Examples for other additional features of the file butler are depicted below. In case you make other improvements I would be happy receiving pictures as soon as you have finished your personal embodiment of the file butler.
