Flat lightweight footstool - any out... 

I'm looking for a footstool which doesn't slope at the top but sits dead horizontal. Ideally also is very light and portable - doesn't need to be any bigger than half a foot size. Any one know of something suitable or am I going to have to stick with my expresso tin solution?

Like this?
Tetra-Teknica Essentials Series GFR-01 6-Position Height Adjustable Guitar Foot Rest, Color Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0195NQSTO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_NjC1BbE9WYK75

There’s a whole bunch of them.
Not sure if your in the UK but all the footstools I see at music stores around here are flat and designed for travel

Thanks for the link but I"m pretty sure from the shot of the legs that it would have a slope. See the last question where response is 5 degrees.

There is a review which includes this:

"Why not 5 stars, then? Because the top of footrest is always level to the ground, I'd find some slope more comfortable. "

Have you tried a hard guitar case? Or some books with a elastic band holding them together. Or a block of balsa wood? Or build one with wood.

Quick update in case anyone else out there is looking for a footrest. It is exceptionally light, very well made, has a 5 year guarantee, and is indeed horizontal on top.
