WHAT IS IT?
Simply put, the Koala Mount is the perfect wall mount designed specifically for the iPad 1 and the iPad 2. It’s sleek, simple, and affordable.
WHY YOU NEED IT:
You want to mount your iPad, but you don’t want to damage your wall
You want a safe place to rest your iPad at night while charging
You’d like to use your iPad in the kitchen, but don’t want to take up valuable counter space
You want to catch up on the news in the bathroom
You want to watch movies while you work out
You want to use your iPad at your desk, but want it out of the way
You want a hands-free way to display your iPad in your office
HOW IT WORKS:
Strong Hold: The Koala Mount is attached to the wall using Large Command strips, which are rated to hold up to 5 pounds each. We’ve used them extensively with our Dockem Universal wall mount, so we can assure you they provide an exceptional hold.
Simple Setup and Damage-free: The Command strips are incredibly easy to use, so setup takes all of 2 minutes. When it comes time to take down or move your Koala Mount, they can be removed damage free by simply stretching upwards.
Replacement Adhesives: Replacement Command strips can be found globally at most local retailers or easily ordered online. In addition, the Koala Mount is also compatible with Large Command Water Resistant Strips or Large Picture Hanging Strips, which offer slightly different features.
The Fit: The Koala mount was designed specifically for the iPad 1 and the iPad 2. With the naked iPad 1, it’s a perfectly snug fit, so your iPad will slide in easily but won’t wiggle at all. The iPad 2 on the other hand has about 1mm of wiggle room at the top. In normal use, however, you won’t even know the space exists. However, if you really want the snug fit, a common slim iPad case fills the space perfectly (we use the GreatShield Smart Cover Buddy).
One Handed Use: The mount was designed to hold your iPad off the wall just enough to allow you to grip the top of it with just one hand. This means you can both dock and undock your iPad with just one hand.
Compatibility with other Devices: While designed specifically for the iPads, the Koala Mount also ended up being compatible with other popular tablets due to their similarity. So far we’ve tested the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Motorola Xoom, but it’s likely that there are others that would work.
