    That is a very interesting concept. The only drawback that I see is the inability to use the holder with a case. Am I correct to assume that or do you have a solution for a case. If you don't I would recommend you also make a small case with the holder attachment on the back. That also might help someone who doesn't want to put a sticker or whatever on the back of their iPad. Just a thought!

    I'd bet it will work on one of the Hard Candy shell cases.

    Pretty innovative.

    I love the idea and the design is first rate. I also love all the various devices you have developed for use with the Hand-e-Holder. I will look into purchasing a couple of these.

    The only part that makes me a bit squeamish is the "press down until you hear a click" part. If you press too hard then it is new Ipad time and if you don't press hard enough then it will fall off and it is also new Ipad time. I would feel better if the ring were already attached to the device then you can just glue it onto the Ipad.

    But the device looks solid and the price is decent for an Ipad accessory. Thank you for not gouging people like some of the other accessory places have. I look forward to ordering and using these on my own Ipad.

    can you stick the handeholder to a case?

    Hi Jake18oly,

    Thank you for you feedback! Which case are you referring to? With all hard cases, the dual-lock ring is able to stick to that, as for the black apple case, you have to make a small alteration to it (which our customer service can talk you through or you can send your case to us and we can fix it for you). I hope I have answered you question.

    Thank you,
    Handeholder

    Thank you,

    Thank you Azieser,

    I understand your concern with "pressing down to hear the click" on your ipad with it face down. However, you will witness that it doesn't really take as much pressure as imagined. We say to use both hands as in the video to make sure you have pressure going across the whole area so all the pieces lock in, it is not to really press that hard. Also as long as you are not setting it on any foreign objects, you should be fine :).

    That is something that we should note though in our publications moving forward.

    Thank you,

    An option to buy more then one stick on ring would be nice for those with cases.

    And get the price down 10$ on everything then advertise the crap out of it, and your rich. Honestly, it is one of those things that if it works as advertised, it has so many uses.

    The stands are also very stylish!

    Genius. Nice name idea too. But personally I am not paying more then 19.99 for the e holder itself, then pay for a stand too. Maybe some deals on bundles ? I think you could price yourself out of reach. With 80 bucks for a stand and hand e holder there are and will be a lot of competitors with cheaper products.

    Of course if you want to send me a review sample.....

    Thank you for you review!

    We are going to start selling the rings separately. You are reading our minds :) We have actually had a lot of request for that. Also, your price point is duly noted.

    Thank you,

    First off, im not to fond of sticking any adhesive on my ipad.
    Second, Is it like a suction cup? If so I wouldnt trust it to hold my iPad.

    Have you done any stress testing so see how the thing will hold up?

    How much pressure is needed to lock the handeholder onto the back of the ipad? any pressure put on it would be to the front screen of the ipad and the surface that its on.

    I have a fear of it holding the iPad as well, but I do not understand how the locking mechanism works, so I can't doubt it or deny it works.

    So, I think we need some "hands on" experience with the product :).

    Get it? Hands on....lol

    Hi MikeToolz,

    Product we use to attach the Handeholder was developed by 3M and is called DualLock it was designed for the transportation industry. The product
    features hundreds of polyolefin stems that snap together, forming a high
    tensile closure that is many times stronger then hook and loop closures.

    The adhesive ring placed on the iPad is very low profile and if desired can be removed but removal will damage the ring and you will have to replace the ring. If removed there should not be any residual adhesive on the back of your iPad if there is a simple alcohol wipe should be able to remove it.

    We have stress tested it and it is strong enough to allow us to use our
    iPads in a ping pong game without disconnecting. This of course is not the
    proper use of the iPad and should not be considered to be an endorsement
    that people should use their iPads as ping pong paddles. It was just a test
    we used to show the strength and holding capacity of the product.

    When locking the Handeholder onto the back the iPad/tablet device should be placed on a flat smooth surface and a direct push with medium pressure will click the DualLock surfaces together providing a very strong hold.

    We have attached and removed the Hand-e-holder thousands of times, without any issues or harm to the ipad. Apple has done a great job as usual with their product design and durability.

    Hope this helps you out a little,
    Handeholder
