This is is the carry on travel case all closed up...

Inside it holds everything for the table, plus my small battery powered amp, stand, & sound equipment.

Tony, that is amazingly clever!! Am I understanding correctly that the clips that hold the brace legs also serve as clips that attach to the case (telescopic handle) itself? Do you extend the telescopic handle and rest the brace legs atop the case itself?

I'm loving it too. Yes, how does the table attach?

Michael Baker has it correct. Two of the clips that hold a brace leg also clip to the telescoping handle. Thanks for the feedback.

Very nice concept. Are there room for tricks in the suitcase as well? 😊

I have enough room for a midsize prop, like 4"x4"x6". The idea for me is to make a small show set up, where I leave my Lefler table at home. I will take a briefcase with my props, plus this table. My briefcase holds all the props for the show except a finaly piece, and then I can transport that midsize prop in this new case along with my amp. So I walk in with one carry on case, and a briefcase.

An engineering master piece. I am sure I am like most, always trying to pack and travel smarter and better.
I have the new style Lefler Pro Suitcase table, I thought the top handle was to low, so I built in a pull handle. Now it is much easier to roll around long distances.

This is great! Do you have (or willing to share) plans for this?

Hey Ragin Onion. Happy to share anything. Not my original idea, but I also don't think anyone has these on the market. I have seen a couple of pros who fly often for gigs use this type of thing. I think Ken Scott was one who had something similar. Jeff McBride as well. The trouble is, everything will depend on the size of the carry on you start with. I'll send you a PM.

It is helpful to find a case with the locking mechanism on the arm & not on the top of the handle... Also, here is a closer look at the clamps...
