The holding surfaces on the Anchor can fit and hold almost any device up to 5/8inches (15mm) thick (we haven't found one that doesn't fit yet). Anchor has been tested with iPad®, iPad mini™, Kindle®, iPhone 4®, iPhone 5®, iPhone 6®, Samsung Galaxy®, LG G2, Microsoft Surface Book Pro® (with and without keyboard). The named products are registered trademarks of Apple, Amazon, Samsung, and Microsoft.

Both Anchor models offer rock-solid support.  Which size is for you? 

Anchor is great for phones, phablets, Small tablets (such as Kindle) and medium size tablets like iPad Pro 9.7inch.

Anchor XL is great for Large tablets such as MS Surface Book Pro and iPad Pro 12.9inch in landscape or portrait mode.

Dimensions:

Anchor: 2.75 inches wide x 4 inches x 4 inches

Anchor XL: 6 inches wide x 4 inches x 4 inches  (wide stance)

Durability: Anchors are strong and forever.  I designed something equally strong and eternal yet great-looking.

 Stretch Goal:

$10,000: Bead-blasted finish similar to Apple® products.

Rewards:

Note about shipping costs:  One of the most challenging parts of any project can be getting a product delivered safely and for the least cost.  The most economical fees for shipping small packages are from USPS (United States Postal Service).  The fees shown when selecting a reward level are USPS fees.  I do not add anything on top of their fees.

                                          CF = Carbon Fiber

Risks and challenges

There is minimal risk for this product. Prototyping and testing are complete. We have partnered with a great local machine shop to fabricate production-level aluminum parts. The materials are sourced in the USA. In any product manufacturing endeavor there are unforeseen hurdles that may affect the delivery schedules such as material shortages/delays, processing equipment maintenance, but every hurdle will be bounded over with grace and perseverance.
We will be performing final assembly and quality checks in our shop.
