Why design a new stand?
One of many reviews
Most covers and cases usually offer only 2 or 3 positions, and these are not very comfortable for typing or working. Plinth offers 5 angles which have been carefully optimised to provide comfortable viewing and typing positions on a range of table/desk heights.
Additionally, most cases and covers only hold your tablet in Landscape mode – Plinth offers both.
Yes indeed! From wafer thin silicone or rigid cases to thick leather folio-type covers, you can sit all of these on a Plinth.
In landscape mode, Plinth will hold your iPad Pro perfectly still while you type in any of the 5 possible positions. In portrait mode, Plinth can only hold your iPad in the top 3 positions (from 45º upwards).
To achieve soft non-slip rubber pads and feet permanently bonded to parts which are very thin and light, I chose to use an unusual process for manufacture, which is unfortunately very expensive.
Plinth is designed to be as good as it can be, not competition to the myriad cheap plastic stands already out there.
Plinth has been designed to be as small and light as possible, so that you’ll be happy to keep it in your pocket or bag always (who wants to carry round big and clunky kit?). However, it is carefully engineered and uses very tough engineering plastics – see the video here “Engineering in plastics” to see it thrown against walls, jumped on, and even run over by a tractor!
It’s also guaranteed for life.
Due to its unique rubber-lined channel, Plinth will happily hold any make of tablet, kindle or smartphone, in either portrait or landscape mode.
