XFLEX is the most versatile tablet stand available. The weighted base and flexible arm design allow for limitless applications.

Everybody loves their iPad, Kindle or tablet but no one likes holding it. The amazing XFLEX offers a single stand solution to all your tablet needs. The flexible arm allows you to snake the tablet to an ideal point of view for reading, surfing, pod-casting or video recording. 

"XFLEX is one really useful piece of hardware that has been long overdue in our world of tablets and smartphones. It can be used to stand virtually any tablet or smartphone. It has two detachable pieces that can fit in a purse or backpack and can be used in a million and one places."  Gadgetmac

"We have covered plenty of awesome iPad stands here in the past. The XFLEX tablet happens to be one of the better ones we have seen." Best iPad Accessories 

"If you like using your iPad to read, watch videos, use it in the car, or just have it sitting on your desk or kitchen counter, I highly suggest giving the XFLEX a try." MacTrast

Why We Need Your Help

If our project is funded your pledge will help us continue to produce XFLEX in the USA. With your help we'll be able to lower our production costs through bulk ordering of materials. The last thing we want to do is outsource production overseas.

We know how much people love XFLEX from all the positive feedback and reviews. Since it was clear that we designed a versatile product with great functionality we invested in a CNC machine for in-house manufacturing and decided to sell direct until the ideal retail opportunity came along. 

Your pledge is greatly appreciated and you can sleep well at night knowing you personally helped keep jobs in the USA. In return we'll send you an amazing product in a timely manner that we guarantee you'll love.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The potential obstacles we face are production and supply delays along with quality control.

Production delays should not be a problem since XFLEX has already gone into production and we are prepared to fulfill orders. We cut the XFLEX aluminum components in-house using a brand new and reliable Haas CNC machine, but we've established a good business relationship with a large local machine shop that can help supplement our production if orders exceed our expectations. For components that are not produced in-house we have established relationships with reliable vendors that we can count on to deliver on time.

Aluminum production entails many variables and as a result shipments might be delayed. We'll prepare for this supply delay by forecasting demand and staying in constant contact with our supplier. Orders will be placed early enough to ensure delivery in time to fulfill orders.

Quality control is another challenge we're fully prepared to meet. We re-engineered XFLEX for greater functionality with the help of feedback from users of the 1st generation model. Our full-production model now incorporates rare earth magnets for quick release of the arm along with a new power-locking "sticky" suction cup.
