As Seen On

 What is SpinPadGrip?

SpinPadGrip, the newest spin on tablet handling technology, is a detachable handle designed to make using any tablet more comfortable and efficient. This “all in one” stand and handle will set a tablet free by making it easy to adjust to the perfect angle for conveniently typing, viewing pictures and videos, or showing off those pictures and videos to someone else. SpinPadGrip’s unique AutoGrip technology will securely attach to most smooth-surfaced tablets and tablet cases. No more fear of dropped tablets and cracked screens!

simple

SpinPadGrip’s foldable handle is anti-slip and ergonomic, allowing your tablet to rest comfortably and securely in the palm of your hand. The design suctions to your tablet with a simple click of a tab, so you can stop hassling with complicated devices. 

versatile

SpinPadGrip is a unique, all-in-one design that can function as a stand or a handle. Never be bored with your tablet again.

  • Gripping and gaming mode
  • Presentation mode
  • Hanging mode
  • Typing mode
  • Desktop mode in portrait or landscape

SpinPadGrip’s unique suction cup attachment makes it compatible with most any iPad, tablet, or e-reader on the market, regardless of size or brand. It is even functional on most protective case materials!

lightweight

SpinPadGrip’s sleek design weighs only 120 grams. We wanted an accessory to make your tablet more portable, not more bulky.

removable

A simple open-and-lock tab on SpinPadGrip makes it easy to remove and reattach as many times as needed. You can easily switch SpinPadGrip from device to device as you are using them, or temporarily remove it so your tablet can travel in a protective sleeve.

 Let’s be honest, Apple and Samsung Galaxy will probably change the design of their tablets again soon, but that doesn’t mean you will have to buy a new product to go with it! SpinPadGrip is going to be compatible  with pretty much any smooth-surfaced design manufacturers can throw at it.

How Does SpinPadGrip Work?

SpinPadGrip has a handle that rotates 360° and reclines 180° around a circular base. This gives your tablet virtually unlimited versatility. 

SpinPadGrip attaches to your tablet using unique AutoGrip technology. You simply open the locking clip in the middle of SpinPadGrip, place two fingers on either side of the slip and push down until the clip locks. SpinPadGrip will be securely suctioned to your tablet until you decide to remove it by opening the clip again.

Why Do You Need SpinPadGrip?

Everyone loves their tablet for its convenient size and functionality. But it isn't always the easiest device to hold and manipulate. Anyone who has had their tablet slip out of their hands and result in a cracked screen would agree. Plus, trying to keep a grasp on your tablet can cause an uncomfortable onslaught of pain to your head, neck, hands and eyes. We want to present a solution that retains the tablet's sleek convenience, but makes it more ergonomic for comfortable use.

 SpinPadGrip makes it easier to:
  • Send a message
  • Watch your favorite movie
  • Find where you are on the map
  • Continue that video call
  • View recipes in the kitchen
  • Conquer that game
  • Share the screen back and forth with others
  • Read on your tablet for long periods of time

How Does SpinPadGrip Compare to Other Tablet Options?



  • Unlike other brand-specific accessories, SpinPadGrip is compatible with almost all smooth-surfaced tablets, regardless of brand or size
  • Instead of clipping around the tablet and not fitting over different cases, SpinPadGrip’s suction attachment allows it to be used with most smooth-surfaced protective cases. 
  • Other products function as either only stands or only handles. SpinPadGrip is an all-in- one design. 
  • Most tablet stands are static and allow you to prop your tablet to only one or two angles. With SpinPadGrip you can adjust your tablet to virtually any angle. 
  • Other stands and handles are bulky, not portable and just plain unattractive. SpinPadGrip is designed to be sleek, ergonomic and portable. 
SpinPadGrip is also the only design to have won the Red Dot Award. 
Earlier this year, 1,816 manufacturers, designers and architects from around the world entered projects into the competition for the Red Dot Quality Seal. The jury appraised every project based on degree of innovation, functionality, self-explanatory quality and ecological soundness. After several days of evaluation, SpinPadGrip was deemed the Red Dot Award Winner of 2014!

About Us

SpinPadGrip was invented by Paul Robert. He is an avid tablet user, but hated how uncomfortable using it was when it kept slipping from his hands. He began looking for a solution in other tablet stands and handles on the market, but couldn't find anything that provided an all-in-one solution. Finally, Paul decided to design his own solution that would be compatible with most all tablets and give them the versatility that they deserve.

In order to make his design come to life and available for everyone, Paul has turned to us, PowerSkin by XPAL Power. Our goal is to provide people with slim and stylish, easy to use, easy to carry technology solutions.  We have previously specialized in multi-functional devices with an extensive line of protective cases that simultaneously charge the device. We are also known for our creative, innovative and patented use of suction adhering technology with smart device accessories, just as is used with SpinPadGrip. PowerSkin is excited to work with Paul to bring a design like SpinPadGrip to the people!

Why Kickstarter?

We understand that the Kickstarter community embraces creators, artists and all those who are original and unique. These are the people who need something innovative. This is why we want to share SpinPadGrip through the Kickstarter community first!

SpinPadGrip needs Kickstarter because we value your ideas, suggestions, opinions and support to make this SpinPadGrip dream a reality. With your funding, SpinPadGrip will be the next great tablet accessory!

Risks and challenges

We have tested many prototypes within the last eight months, and are confident that the end result is the perfect product for customers.

• For secure handle rotation, we chose the highest quality steel hinge in order to bring peace of mind to the consumer. These are the same type of hinges used on laptops.

• For longer tablet and SpinPadGrip adherence, we are still testing various raw materials, some of which are thermo-plastic elastomers with new AutoGrip Process

Because of this testing and design improvement, we are ready and confident to move forward
