Review: G-Hold Can Prevent You from Dropping Your iPad

If you like PopSockets but wish there was a larger version for iPads and other tablets, there is good news from Safetray Products. The G-Hold iPad Holder ($29.95) is similar to a PopSocket, but it is larger and it can be more easily repositioned because it uses Micro Suction not adhesive. Safetray, as its name suggests, is known for similar adapters to help waitstaff keep a grip on serving trays; so this is right up the company's alley.

You can apply a G-Hold directly to an iPad or most tablets; but if you want to attach it to a textured case, there is a "Compatibility Sticker" provided and also sold separately that makes it work with such materials. The G-Hold holders are sold in assorted colors and designs so you can personalize your tablet, which makes them great for demonstrating apps at tradeshows.

Pros

  • Uses Micro Suction not adhesive
  • Reusable and repositionable
  • Assorted designs and color choices
  • Larger than a PopSocket to accommodate tablets

Cons

  • Compatibility Sticker (provided and sold separately) for cases with textures
