    Hi I wanted a hands free setup for the use of an iPad in the bed.
    SpiderArm was fitted to my needs except that it does not allow iPads with a back cover.
    So I got a cheap headrest mount for iPad from ebay that has a similar ball joint.
    Then I replaced the stock iPad cover from SpiderArm with ebay one.
    Although I had to apply a bit of sand paper to reduce the ball size to fit to the spiderArm, it worked just fine.
    Due to the arm length, spiderArm wobbles a bit, but overall, I like the quality of the product.
    If anyone is interested, I will send the link of the ebay mount.
    Now, my nect is free from pain while using iPad in the bed. :D
