Elevated Telephone Stand

The rear side of a desk type, touch tone telephone is elevated to approximately 35 degrees so that the surface containing the lights and dialing buttons is more easily seen and operated by a user.

The figure shows a triangular shaped side piece 4 having a bottom surface 2, fitted with a non-skid surface, which is supported by a table or desk. A second piece similar to piece 4 can be situated parallel thereto and joined by a cross member. The upper surface 5 of the two triangular pieces serves as a supporting surface for the bottom of the telephone 6. The upper surface 5 of the triangular piece 4 can have an adhesive type material such as Velcro (TM) to secure the bottom of the telephone 6. In this manner, the indicator lights and operating buttons on the upper surface 8 of the telephone 6 can be more easily viewed and operated by the user.
