    Would appreciate any suggestions on how to secure an ipad to a table or stand? I am intending to use it mounted to a keyboard stand in a public location and naturally want to ensure it isn't taken away.

    Thanks in advance

    Will people still be able to pick up the iPad and handle it?

    Maybe have a back protector on it, the kind that uses water when it's applied. When I removed mine, it took me about 5min and a lot of stretching and pulling. On the back protector, use some form of mounted loop or hook, basically anything that your cable or even a laptop lock will be connected to.

    The back protector serves a few uses, protect the iPad from scratching, gives the user a little more grip, attach your security device and of course anyone attempting to remove won't be able to do so quickly. Of course this is under the assumption somebody is watching it as well.

    Not sure if it's the best way, but it's one way to do it.

    You may want to go to an Apple Store, an Apple Retailer, or to Best Buy and see how they do it. People can pick it up to use it, but not walk off with it.

    What about something like this kind of anchor which attaches with permanent adhesive, plus a Kensington laptop security cable/lock ?

    He might not want something permanent if it's only a small business.
