    I was using a remote from the TV but it wasn't quite proping the iPad far enough up. Shame I didn't see this before I ordered a $50 leather case!

    With that type of case you could probably stick an iron in there and it would work.

    Just an observation. And if you do try it please make sure the iron is not plugged in.;)

    I'm amazed that this thread is still alive!!

    I'm even more amazed at the fact that I still use that cardboard triangle after all this time. It still works for me and I've never seen a case that I like.

    Very clever! Now ~ my case has a additional smaller flap attached just for the purpose of standing up.

    I guess they all don't.:(

    I replaced my cardboard triangle with the Zaggmate case (w/o keyboard) and it was perfect - until I bought the iPad 2 and passed my old iPad to my husband!!! Now I use the Smart Cover from Apple, which works pretty well as a stand on the table next to my chair, but isn't very functional on my lap.

    Just use the box it came in, works like a charm and no work or money involved.

    Had a couple of these built for the iPad 1, many many years ago. Made from scrap wood in the garage. Several holes are for angle adjustment.

    Wife's iPad Mini Retina sits comfortably for reading and charging. (Mother Day Gift :) )

    Daughter's iPad 2 is happy on it too.:)
