IT Helper Comp Shade: Laptop Cowl Solves Screen Glare

IT Helper Comp Shade Laptop Hood

We know how hard it can get to view a laptop outdoors; the glare just makes it quite impossible to work sometimes. Well, the IT Helper has a simple yet effective solution to eliminate outdoor glare, the Comp Shade (pictured above). It’s made of high-density but lightweight plastic that completely blocks glare and it’s easy to use.

The Comp Shade attaches to the laptop lid with hook and loop fasteners, its right hand and left hand panels assemble quickly and it opens and closes in seconds. Its universal size fits all laptops with screen sizes of 10” to 17”.

When you’re done, you can fold it together with your laptop and its thin size doesn’t add much bulk to your laptop case.

The Comp Shade is available for international order for €25 (about $33) plus €7 ($9) shipping to Europe or the U.S. But it should be easy to make your own if you’re the DIY type, you see the photos.
