Father’s Day is tough. Gift ideas are not easy to come by … and let’s face it, dad isn’t much help. So this year we’ve decided to go all out for dad’s big day. In this series leading up to June 16, we’ll give great gift ideas for all types of dads.
If you were like most kids, you loved it when your dad would read to you. Great memories are made while drifting to sleep when he’s reading The Hobbit aloud … and of course doing all of the voices.
Now with his handy iPad, dad has the option to read thousands of different books (that require thousands more voices) right at his fingertips. Unfortunately, even dad isn’t immune to a tired arm while holding his iPad. But with a Newer Technology GripStand, discomfort is no issue.
The GripStand is the perfect multipurpose tool for your dad’s iPad or iPad mini. Its unique handle makes holding an iPad easy for hours on end, so he will remain comfortable even during those marathon reading sessions. And should he need to put it down, the handle doubles as desktop stand that swivels 360 degrees and allows for positioning at virtually any angle for viewing. The convenient handle can also be rotated to use as a hook to hang the iPad and turn it into the ultimate picture frame.
With its hard plastic shell and shock-absorbing rubber inner liner, the GripStand will also protect dad’s iPad against accidental drops or whatever other dangers he or his children may pose. Does he have an Apple Smart Cover? The GripStand will still fit seamlessly!
So if your dad loves to use his iPad to read to his kids or just loves to read in general, the GripStand is the perfect gift. Give him the kind of comfort that will keep him happily reading for years to come.

Take Convenience of iPad to New Heights

Heavy Duty Base Provides Stability

Besides being nearly impossible to tip over, the GripBase Podium can be used confidently in active, crowded, and/or unpredictable settings, and its ribbed twist lock prevents extension shaft slippage.
