Get A Grip!

Usually when someone tells you to “get a grip,” it means they think you’ve done something crazy and need to get back in touch with reality. You might be trying to drive your car while practicing the trumpet (not kidding, it’s been seen). You might be so obsessed with reaching the next level on your game that you didn’t even notice the kids painting a mural on the wall with chocolate pudding. You might have even forgotten about your nosy neighbors and ventured outside in your bathrobe. If you do any of those things…well, those things are all crazy and someone very rightly should tell you to get a grip. But someone could also be telling you to “get a grip” as in “get a NuGuard GripStand or GripBase for your iPad or iPad Mini.” And if you don’t already have one, well that might make you crazy too.

Because you don’t want people thinking you’re crazy (you know you are, but no one else should), pick up one of our NuGuard GripStands or GripBases, the perfect accessory for any iPad. We have versions compatible with the iPad 3 & 4, the iPad 2, the original iPad, and even the mini.

The NuGuard GripStand has a hard plastic coating that melts in your mouth but not in your hand, just like M&Ms. I’m kidding…I’m not crazy. The hard plastic coating along with a shock-absorbing inner rubber liner protects your iPad from impact. The removable desktop stand can be rotated 360 degrees and positioned at virtually any angle for viewing or typing. The desktop stand also doubles as a one-hand grip so you can use your iPad while standing or walking (just don’t walk near a pool, open sewer grate, or rug that you think might be covering a trap door). Use your NuGuard GripStand to aid in presentations, or even use the hook to hang your iPad on the wall!

When you want to use your iPad as a desktop workstation, the NuGuard GripStand can lock into the GripBase. It’s perfect for the classroom, allowing for multiple children to use an iPad without worrying about it sliding off the table. This way, none of the students have to physically hold the iPad (because everyone knows how clumsy little Timmy can be…the kids are still traumatized from his incident last week with the class hamster). The GripBase also works phenomenally in other high traffic areas such as the workplace.

No matter who you are or what you use your iPad for, don’t let it run around naked (another crazy thing that would make someone tell you to “get a grip”). So unless you really are crazy, get your iPad or iPad mini a NuGuard GripStand and GripBase to keep it safe and greatly enhance your iPad experience.
