Light weight and robust, the Portapuzzle can be easily transported and stored away. When puzzling you can work on your puzzle in the centre of the board - the side panels and the removable panel can be used for sorting pieces.
As soon as you have finished working your puzzle, place the removable panel over your jigsaw, take the pieces from the side panel and close the side panels over the centre panel. Fix the centralhook and loopstrap then close the hook and loop straps at the top and bottom of the board. Your puzzle is now safe to move around or store until you want to work on it again.Suitable for most standard 1000 piece puzzles (± 68 x 49cm). Portapuzzle dimensions: 81 x 58 x 2cm. 31.0 x 20.0 x 5.0 centimetres. January, 2018 I find this product to be a good idea as long as you are aware of its negatives, then you can easily be happy with it knowing these up front. It easily holds the size it says and you could do a 1500 piece on it as well just not all unassembled pieces flat out. You cant have the puzzle in one piece but rather in two sections because of the bump in the middle of the board where the three boards lay together. I do not find this a problem either and once both sides are done, you could slide it off and put them together. Also once you have laid out the pieces to start assembling, you cant store it on its side. You must store it flat because all the pieces will end up at the bottom. This is also not a problem if you can store it under a couch or bed or for me, under my coffee table.
The felt used holds the pieces nicely but allows you to easily slide them. I do think the manufacturers could have secured the felt completely to the underlayment so that it does not bubble up a bit here and there as you maneuver pieces around. Over all, a clever idea so you do not have to use a huge space all the time if you are someone like me who likes to do a bit here and there.The item "Puzzle Mates Portapuzzle Standard Jigsaw Accessory (1000 Pieces).
