If you want a very simple and cheap way to mount your iPad on you wall, PadTab could be one of the perfect options for you. Consisting of a piece of clear plastic with a fairly strong adhesive which you stick at the back of your tab and another clear plastic which you can stick to where you want to mount your tab, this mount is probably the easiest one to setup. Other than that, the piece of plastic attached to the back of your tab is very thin, so you can still put on your favorite cases. Would this be strong enough? The wall mount can support up to 5 times the weight of your iPad.
Upon purchasing, the package includes one PadTab mount (the one for your tab) and two Tabclips (the one for your wall) so you can automatically mount your iPad on two locations of your choice. Besides, separate TabClips are easily available so you can mount your iPad wherever you want.
This is one of my favorite wall mounts on this list. It’s very discrete, simplistic, and cheap. The only downside I see in this product is that if I would want to remove the TabClip, I could only do so by using a hair dryer (according to their site). It’s kind of reassuring that it’s so strong, but I’d have to carefully think of where I’d want to stick these TabClips as they probably will be there for a long time.
If you don’t want to have to attach anything on your iPad, or put a special case in order to mount your iPad, Dockem provides is with the Koala iPad Wall Mount. Simply stick two pieces of plastic on your wall and voila, you are good to go, no screws required.
Aside from the fact that you would not need to put on a special case to mount your iPad, you can use your own slim case as you mount it. You would not have to remove your case when you want to mount your iPad, just to put it on again when you’ve unmounted it already. You also do not have to worry about your iPad’s fit as it is very secure and is very easy to dock and undock.
The Koala iPad Wall Mount is compatible with all tablets with less than or equal to 11mm of thickness. A complete list of other compatible tablets are listed on their site.
One of the very practical benefits of being able to mount your iPad is being able to use with with ease when in the kitchen. Built with that benefit in focus, the CTA Digital Tablet Mount is the best seller in cookbook stands in Amazon. Aside from this product being a stand, it can also work as a table stand making it more flexible depending on your need. With solid, flexible rotating joints, easy 360 rotation for your iPad, and an all-aluminum build, watching movies, reading the news, playing a quick game, referring to ingredients, or most especially watching a cooking guide on your iPad while in the kitchen has never been this easy.
If you do not mind having to purchase a special case for your iPad, or if you do not trust adhesives and prefer to screw your mount to the wall, the X Lock Mount Disk is the perfect option for you. After setting everything up, mounting your iPad gets very simple as you just have to align your case with the mount, then twist to lock in. Want to change your orientation? Simply turn your device until you feel a ‘click’ to indicate that your iPad is locked in securely. At only 13mm thick, the X Lock Mount Disk is pretty slim and is unobtrusive so you can place it in almost any environment without disturbing the things around it.
Screws are provided so you can screw the Mount Disk to your wall, but if you do not want to use this, there is still the option to use the adhesive provided in the package, so at least you still have to option.
The disk costs only $10, but the case would cost you an additional $40 if you do not have one already.
A stand, a holder, and a wall mount, all at the same time. Featuring a very comfortable rubberized grip, and a lock button to securely hold your iPad in place, this product is best if you keep moving your iPad from one place to another. For both portrait and landscape orientations, you can use this as a stand on your table, a holder for carrying around, and a mount in a sense that you can hang it on a wall.
