NewerTech NuGuard GripStand
Black Protective case, display stand, and hand
grip for the Apple iPad

NewerTech iFolio for iPad
Available in: Black and White
Get a grip on your iPad display needs.
The NewerTech® NuGuard® GripStand® is like a multipurpose tool for your Apple® iPad®. The hard plastic protective shell grips your iPad snugly while enveloping it in a shock-absorbing inner rubber liner. The removable, skid resistant desktop stand can be swiveled 360° and positioned at virtually any angle for viewing or typing needs. The desktop stand also doubles as a highly effective one hand grip so you can use your iPad while standing or walking. And to take presentations to the next level, the NuGuard GripStand handle can even be rotated to use as a hook to hang your iPad on the wall in either landscape or portrait orientation.

Going mobile with your iPad is a breeze too. During transport, flip the iPad around so the glass is facing into the protective case for extra protection.

Use the desktop stand as a handle to carry your iPad like a briefcase. Or, when travel bag space is a consideration, just twist the desktop stand to remove it.

Tips for installing iPad in NewerTech NuGuard GripStand:
  • Place GripStand with handle side on work surface, and so "top" side is furthest from you
  • Slide top part of iPad into place
  • Push down gently on corners and edges until rubber "lip" slides over top
  • Do the same along the edge and bottom, always pressing at outermost edge of iPad
  • Make sure entire iPad is fully seated into rubber liner
  • Once the lip is over the edges of the iPad, it is securely attached
Note: GripStand must be used with an undamaged iPad for the device to fully seat properly inside the GripStand. When installed correctly, the iPad screen should not touch a table surface when laid face down.

An "Amazing" Product For Classrooms

The NewerTech GripStand and GripBase have been a lifesaver and stress reducer in my 21st century classroom. We spent precious funds to purchase 15 Apple iPad 2's for use by 240 students each day. Protecting the iPads during use is a top priority. The GripStand and GripBase have definitely prevented accidental damage of the iPads.

The cases are durable and easy to label. They securely hold and protect the iPad from occasional "rough use". The GripBase is my favorite aspect! It is heavy and reliable, and they have worked flawlessly during eight weeks of use so far. They make it easy for students to collaborate and create as the bottom of the base swivels AND the screen can flip and turn from where the base attaches to the iPad. I no longer have to worry about iPads sliding off the table. This is an amazing product and we are very thankful for the confidence it gives us in ensuring the safety of our technology investment.

Rating: 5/5 I couldn't live without this nifty versatile gripstand November 14, 2012 Got this iPad Gripstand (original iPad) a year ago and it has proved indispensable. I use the hand grip portion the most, although it is super easy to switch to the display stand. This thing just works. A great handle for carrying -- and safer for the grandkids to carry as it won't slip out of their hands so quickly. And the swivel grip serves as a stand on a table, on a plane tray, on my lap --anyway I want to use it. I get lots of comments from jealous onlookers -- including from Apple employees at the Apple Store, who loved it. For the price, this is one of the best value accessories anywhere. Talk about sturdy -- after a year, it works like new.

Rating: 5/5 So many creative uses! November 10, 2011 As if the GripStand didn't do enough already (from being ultra-portable and protective, versatile, and just plain AWESOME) - you'd be surprised at all the ways people find to use this product. I've seen it used in restaurants and retail environments for those that implement iPads into their workflows, from order-taking to check-out. Schools use it because of it's protective and flexible nature. And recently I was able to purchase one for my own iPad for our video productions here in house that require scripting.... I use my iPad as a teleprompter and the GripStand allows me to secure my teleprompter in just the right manner to our camera so we've got a direct line of sight! It's super secure and I'm never worried about the safety of my iPad... and when production is over, I just grab it and head out of the studio and use the iPad for normal day to day work! I would recommend it to anyone - especially those who need an innovative way of using their iPad beyond the ordinary.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
