Abstract

The steering wheel stand (10) for an electronic game control is an apparatus for supporting a game controller (16) having a steering wheel. The stand (10) supports the game controller (16) in a manner that simulates the driving experience. The steering wheel stand (10) includes a frame (32, 36, 40) made of hollow tubing, which rests on a pair of base legs (20). The base legs (20) bend toward the user at one end, and contact the surface on which the user is seated, at the opposite end. The frame is telescopically adjustable to allow for users of different sizes. The base legs (20) also support a pedal plate (28) for the placement of a video game's pedal controls (18). The pedal plate (28) may be vertically adjusted to accommodate users of different leg lengths. The steering wheel controls (16) sit on a tray (42) on top of the frame in front of the user.
