nHand: It keeps your iPad securely “in hand” at all times.
The Award-Winning Design of the nHand Tablet Holder & 3-way Stand...
nHand® is a new patent-pending product that makes your iPad or smart tablet a truly handheld device. nHand is a convenient, removable handle made from high-grade billet aluminum that securely attaches to the back of any iPad, smart tablet, or even your laptop using the powerful 3M Dual Lock re-closeable fastening system.
Plus, when you set down your smart tablet, it also doubles as a 3-way stand, or you can even hang your tablet on the wall using the built-in hook feature. It’s the simplicity of the nHand design that makes it so practical, yet highly functional.
nHand is specially designed to work with any smart tablet or E-reader.
Use nHand with the iPad, the Samsung Galaxy Tablet, Microsoft Surface, the Kindle & Nook E-Readers, or even your laptop!
Let’s face it… iPads and other smart tablets are expensive... and slippery.
Dropping a smart tablet can almost guarantee you $150+ dollars or more to replace broken glass... or worse, it could be destroyed beyond repair.
More and more people are using smart tablets for their business and personal daily tasks.
From teachers who use iPads in the classroom, to doctors and nurses, engineers, police, designers, or librarians, we all want the convenience of a smart tablet, without the constant fear of dropping it, or the awkward fumbling that tablets and bulky cases can cause.
That is why we invented the nHand- it keeps your iPad securely “in Hand” at all times.
Imagine… now you can lay out by the pool and read your favorite novel without having to worry about your e-reader falling into the water. The uses for nHand are virtually unlimited.
Children love nHand because they can finally hold onto an iPad while playing games or learning. Parents love nHand because they can feel secure in letting their child enjoy the benefits of technology without the constant fear of damage.
• Made of high-grade billet aluminum, and available in black, space gray or gold anodized finish. It’s smooth curves are a natural addition to the sleek lines of the iPad.
• The ergonomic design comfortably fits any size hand using one of three soft memory foam inserts that is included with each nHand kit, and it works the same for right or left handed people. The smooth rounded edges of nHand ensure hours of comfortable use even in the most demanding conditions.
• nHand‘s innovative design also features 3 different stand positions for your tablet- an 85˚ degree angle, a 35˚ degree angle and a 45˚ degree angle.
• nHand is attached to your tablet using the 3M Dual Lock reclosable fastening system. The package includes enough strips for using your nHand with up to 3 devices. Although the nHand is surprisingly secure when attached to your smart tablet, it is easy to remove and reattach. This new technology is light years ahead of any Velcro-based handle. You can be confident that once the nHand is locked to your iPad, it will not detach easily.
• nHand is not only highly useful and convenient, it can pay for itself many times over in reduced damage to your expensive smart tablet.
• nHand is designed to hang on a wall or hook for safe storage or simple hands-free use–the benefits just keep coming!
There are some products that when you first see them, you marvel at their simplicity and functionality. Once you have your nHand tablet holder, you will wonder what you did without it!
The nHand Production Team:
Inventor: James Hill is an award-winning entrepreneur and inventor for over 25 years. He has won two gold medals at the International Inventors Convention, and is known for his advances in commercial energy-saving products. For the nHand project, James has brought together a team of seasoned specialists in the fields of technology, manufacturing, product development & marketing, and patents.
Product Development: Christian Ophus is a marketing and product design specialist. He has worked in the technology sector and with publishing companies to bring new products to the market for the past 20 years. He is in charge of branding, marketing and overseeing the packaging and fulfillment portion of the project.
Engineering Design: Steve Swisher of Swish Product Design been instrumental in making sure that all the necessary design elements are in place for mass production and cost efficiency.
Manufacturing: Steve Cooper is the lead coordinator for the manufacturing process of the product.
The Manufacturing Vendors:
The nHand is made of sturdy billet aluminum. To manufacture the product in the most efficient and Eco-friendly manner, it is ideal to use an aluminum extrusion process. This creates the least amount of waste. Our primary manufacturer is one of the largest aluminum extrusion companies in the region and is located in North Texas. They have 35+ years in the same location and have more than enough capacity to serve our production needs many times over. However, we have secured a secondary manufacturer as a fail safe to ensure timely delivery of the product to our customers.
The Dual Lock fasteners as well as the memory foam inserts are a key element to the features of the nHand. All are made from 3M products, which has a stellar reputation for products of the highest quality. These materials are available nationwide and around the world.
The final step- the anodizing process takes place at a well-known plating company in Tulsa that has been anodizing products for over 45 years.
All packaging and product fulfillment will take place in Tulsa, OK.
How the funds will be used
The funds raised will go towards creating an extrusion die, tooling, purchasing of raw materials, production, and shipping. We have finalized the design, qualified and selected our manufacturers. Production will begin in early December.
We need your help to take nHand to market...
All testing, prototypes and packaging are ready to go, but we also need your help to manufacture an extrusion die as well as a less expensive, yet sturdy plastic version to come to market next year. This will allow us to bring this great product to a much larger market.

Risks and challenges
Over the years, we have developed and taken several great ideas to market. From that experience, we know what it takes to get a product to market–on time and on budget. All of our products are proudly made in the USA and to ensure timely delivery, we have arranged for multiple vendors to manufacture the nHand tablet holder.
Since there are no moving parts, the product you see in the photos and videos works perfectly as designed.
However, every project has risks. The most common risks are potential delays in tooling and raw materials packaging and shipping. To the best of our ability we have carefully put agreements in place with long time manufacturers that have great reputations in their respective industries.
All of the base materials needed to manufacture the nHand, such as raw aluminum, foam, paper and anodizing services are readily available.
The relationships we have developed with our manufacturers and product fulfillment vendors are in place and are key elements to our success. All have assured us, minus another government shut down, (just kidding) that we can deliver on time.
Most importantly we will provide our Kickstarter family with continious updates to let you know about the status of the project and the progress of you order.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
