    Hey Guys,

    Anyone ever put a magnet strip on the back of the ipad to hold the smart cover on well? I've been debating getting the Incipio Smart Feather case with my smart cover, but I noticed the Belkin cover has magnets on it.

    Well I did a quick search on McMaster Carr and found magnets as thin as 1/32" strips that are adhesive backed. It's cheap enought to make we want to try this. I'd put it on the case, but this could even be an option for those naked iPad peeps.

    I could be wrong, but don't think that's a magnetized strip. For example, on Incase's Mag Snap back cover, the two strips are just steel so that the magnet on the Smart Cover sticks to them.
