Supplies and Tools:
Pipe foam 4 feet
Laptop computer
Ninja Laptop cooler
Rubber Self-Seal Pipe Wrap Insulation 3/4 in. x 6 ft.

We purchase our laptops and occasionally they would get hot. We solved the problem by purchasing our laptop Ninja Laptop cooler but this product is made of aluminum and has hard edges. 

This post shows the six steps to apply soft edges to a lap top cooler. 

Step 1: Fig.1 above right shows rubber self seal pipe insulation. 
Step 2: Fig.2 below shows scissors that will be used to cut the insulation into small pieces.

Step 3: Fig.3 shows the laptop computer and fig.4 shows the Ninja Laptop cooler. The cooler purpose is to pull the heat from the laptop and prevent the laptop from getting hot.

Step 6: Fig.10 and fig.11 shows the solution. Two pieces of Rubber Self-Seal Pipe Wrap insulation were placed on the top and bottom tier of the Ninja Laptop cooler. The rubber seal acts has a soft barrier and is now comfortable to have on one's lap. Problem solved.
