    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking for a solution for locking down the iPads on panels for our annual design exhibition.

    Last year, we had tethers that were attached to the back of the iPads via an adhesive pad, which worked just okay but I am hoping this year to find something better. We are trying to avoid hassle un-looping the tether from the metal bars on the panel each time we want to charge the iPads.

    Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks!

    Have you done a quick Google search by any chance?

    Google is a marvelously useful tool, but I'm not sure how to distill my inquiry in Google in a "quick" and comprehensive manner. Perhaps you can help with that? If so, thanks in advance.

    Im not sure what your budget is or your display setup is like, but a quick look and I found this. Seems a little less hassle.

    Thanks for your reply, gixxerfool. I will relay this to my colleague. I have a feeling she might balk at the price, but it's worth presenting.

    You do have a point. I can’t really think of anything.

    Is this a better price? They even offer a bulk option. The only thing is they seem to limit to minis and 9.7” iPads.

    Is there something like that for any of the 10.5 inch/11 inch/12.9 inch iPads?

    Did you lose any iPads at your previous exhibitions? Why not go for the same option, possibly revise it a little? Or possibly hire someone to just standby and keep an eye on the iPads? How many are you setting up at once?

    I didn’t find any on my search, but it was a cursory look at best. It was more to find something in line with the OPs needs.
