I don't have a photo of it, nor do I have it anymore to take one, but for my last field cradle I bolted some crutches to a walker. I put the arm cushions on the handholds to both provide a cushion for the fuse and widen the fuse space. Not pretty but it folded for transport and kept me from having to go down on my bad knees to assemble my plane at the field.
