About this project
Hi everyone and many thanks in advance for helping us get these 2 great new iPad products off the ground. First, we have a brand new accessory – the standard Swing Mount or locking Swing Mount Pro. When used in conjunction with a modulR Case, you’ll enjoy your iPad like never before. Simply mount one under your kitchen cabinet or to a table-top work surface and you have an instant display screen or retail display with a full range of motion and full security.
We’re also launching the new Tough Case. This is the best case we’ve developed so far – more protection for your iPad while maintaining a low profile and a comfortable grip by ergonomically mixing hard and soft plastics where they matter most. It’s still universally compatible with all previously released modulR accessories and comes with a versatile cover stand and comfortable hand strap.
THE MODULR STORY:
MAKING YOUR IPAD A TRULY MOBILE DEVICE IS WHAT WE’RE ALL ABOUT.
The most comprehensive iPad Case + Accessory System around – modulR offers more than just protection for the iPad. With a case that clicks-to-fit to an ever expanding line of stands, straps and mounts, a modulR iPad can go anywhere and do anything. Just start with a Tough Case or Slim Case and from there you can build a suite of accessories that help you get more use out of your iPad in more places – making it the mobile device it was really meant to be.
WHAT WE’RE RELEASING
We’re announcing two great modulR products designed to improve your mobile iPad experience. The first is a fully adjustable display mount – great for kitchens, even better for retailers or researchers; the other is the best case we’ve made so far – a case with the same modulR compatibility as our previous cases, but tougher, more comfortable and even more versatile.
USE YOUR IPAD AS A DISPLAY SCREEN–ANYWHERE.
SLIDE A MODULR SLIM OR TOUGH CASE ONTO THE SWING MOUNT, AND YOUR IPAD QUICKLY BECOMES A USEFUL UNDER-CABINET OR DESKTOP DISPLAY WITH A FULL RANGE OF MOTION.
modulR is built on the idea of giving your iPad more purpose in more places. This mount is no exception. Just slide your iPad in, pull the lever closed, and you’ll enjoy the perfect viewing angle with 360°s of swivel and 180°s of rotation. With the low profile Swing Mount design, rigid stability through its high-torque hinges and versatile mounting options, you now have the freedom to mount your iPad anywhere.
Seamless compatibility to other modulR accessories means that you can grab your iPad and go for when life takes you places.
For businesses, retailers, schools, trade shows or anyone who has security in mind, we offer the Swing Mount Pro with locking mechanism and quick-key access. Same all-angle display as the standard Swing Mount, but with added theft-deterrence when used in combination with the modulR Tough Case.
THE PERFECT CASE FOR USE AND ABUSE
THE TOUGH CASE OFFERS RUGGED PROTECTION WITHOUT THE BULK, IS COMFORTABLE TO HOLD, EASY TO HANDLE AND QUICKLY ADAPTABLE TO ANY SITUATION.
The Tough Case takes everything we’ve learned over the past 2 years and combines it into our best case yet. Made for the iPad 2 & 3, it has a hard outer shell tough enough to endure the daily grind, and ergonomic grips comfortable enough to be held all day. Every Tough Case includes a removable cover that protects your screen and doubles as a sturdy display stand.
Other features include a forward-facing sound port, a free hand strap, and compatibility with all modulR accessories.

CHECK OUT WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY
Once you’ve had the chance to use the modulR system, we think you’ll agree with those who already have – modulR is the only system out there that can keep up with today’s mobile workforce. From the medical community to business and education, hear what some of our customers have to say:
The iPad has been revolutionary tool for our sales force, but it’s modulR’s truly innovative system that enables our team to get the most out of the device. We’re selling Caterpillar equipment in locations ranging from trade shows and con- struction sites to show rooms and board rooms. ModulR serves as the perfect solution for our sales team, allowing us to use the iPad for interactive, hands-on presentations in any environment.”
- Archie Lyons, Caterpillar
“The modulR case, hand strap and swing mount have been essential in helping us protect and handle the iPad. In a bar environment a lot goes on and the last thing I need to be worrying about is where I last sat down the iPad.”
- Melanie Tapp, General Manager
A FEW OTHER CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE ADOPTED THE MODULR PHILOSOPHY:

modulR is pronounced just like modular
Both parts use a dual-injection tool which does polycarbonate (PC) with a Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) over mold.
The Tough Case is constructed with a PC shell for strength and protection and then TPE over mold for grip. There is also a felt liner inside the case to prevent any scratches.
The Cover Stand includes three PC panels to protect the retina display from blunt force and along specific points for the clasp and stand rigidity. A TPE over mold connects the parts and serves to protect the retina display from drops and shocks, as well as .
The Swing Mount comes with both screws and high strength adhesive tape (same thing we use on our slim wall mount). You can stick this thing anywhere.
The Swing Mount Pro comes with screws.
First off, we love Kickstarter and think it is the best thing for anyone’s entrepreneurial spirit. Second, we like to try news things. Last, the time from product tool approval to ship takes about 5 weeks. We thought is would be fun to offer preorders through Kickstarter and develop new relationships.
Outstanding protection for your iPad and retina display. Comfortable case that is easy to hold and great to handle, especially with a hand strap. Cover also quickly detaches when you don’t need it. Versatile Cover Stand protects the display and provides sturdy support as a display and typing stand. Front facing sound port for louder audio. Compatibility with all modulR accessories.

The Tough Case adds a little less than 1/16” to the back, sides and front lip of the iPad.
When attached, the Cover Stand adds 3/16” to the display.
Unfortunately not at this time. We used a dual-injection tool which does the PC and TPE together and there was no good way to get a magnet in the tool. We are looking at a little magnet insert for one of the pill-shaped cavities on the inside cover.
The Slim Case is designed more for Apple purist - a low-profile design, Apple Smart Cover compatibility and a crystal clear color option. Compatibility is all modulR accessories except for the Swing Mount Pro and Cover Stand.
The Smart Cover works great as a cover and typing stand. It does pitch the display stand up a 1/16", but maintains that position as a display. The Smart Cover is not good for interaction regardless, for that check out the Tough Case.
Yes. The Tough Case is designed around the iPad 3 for an exact fit. A thin felt pad on the inside case prevents scratching the iPad and keeps it snug. Four felt spacer inserts are included for slimmer iPad 2's. The inserts have an adhesive back and attach to cutouts in the other felt pad for easy install and perfect fit.
