Ridge Stand Pro

Ridge Stand Pro is designed especially for the MacBook. The new Pro stand is wider and thicker than the previous version as well as more sturdy and able to withstand the greater weight of a laptop. The design of Ridge Stand Pro encourages a healthier posture for your neck and back as you work, play, and interact with the world.

Ridge Stand 

Ridge Stand is just the right solution for the iPad and e-reader. It can sustain a max weight of 4kg (9lbs) device by using it as position 1 like MacBook Air 11 inch. (Position 1: 4kg; Position 2: 1.3kg.) It is perfect for playing games and watching videos as well as working on your iPad.

Ridge Stand Mini 

Ridge Stand Mini is a smaller stand designed for mobile phones. The Mini is ideal for securing phones at the optimal angle to allow to comfortably watch videos, browse the news, chat with friends, and take selfies anywhere - even in the car. *Every package includes a car mount and a sticky pad to secure your phone.

ADJUSTABILITY: Our stands can be adjusted and readjusted to fit any angle thanks to its strong hinge units – you can setup the stand to your eye level, and to relax your neck and back.

CLEAN WORKSPACE: Ridge Stand was designed to help cut clutter from the workday and open spaces that promote productive thought. We believe that people can get more done when they have a clean, organized workplace. Less clutter means less distraction, which equates to greater focus and productivity.

BUILD-IN CABLE ORGANIZER: Ridge Stand not only prevents stress on your neck and back, it removes the distracting jumble of wires with a built-in cable organizer. Regardless of the viewing angle, the charging cables can be organized and hidden from view.

KEEPING THINGS COOL: Ridge Stand reduces heat associated with laptops, tablets, and phones by elevating the units and providing better ventilation. Now we offer a new choice for a better ventilation solution - the cooling fan kit. Better air flow to reduce device heating whether you are playing computer games, watching videos, coding, or photo/video editing.

It’s compatible with different sized 3rd party products from 7 – 15 cm thickness. Just adjust the screws manually to fit different 3rd party product.

SILICONE BUMPER: Forget annoying obstacles on the edge of your screen - we have thickened the rubber bumper. Our groove design can hold your device securely. With the new silicon buffer, you can play with your bezel less phone and tablet without any blocks from the stand.

NON-SLIP DESIGN: An extra silicone mat protects your device. Regardless if you use the stand in position A or position B, the new Ridge 2.0 design allows you to keep your cables organized and provides non-slip protection for your device.

Compared to Ridge Stand I and Ridge Stand Plus, Ridge Stand 2.0 is more durable and stable as a result of slight design modifications. Due to the release of Ridge Stand 2.0, we will no longer be producing the old versions of our products anymore.

Design Idea

I usually working with computer for a long time and it will start to heat up, there are lots of cooling pad for laptop on the marking, but most of them look bulky and nonadjustable. So I restructured it to be more flexible and ventilated. I shared my  idea with team and started making renderings and tooling out sample after sample both using our in-house 3D printer, reach the factory to make a sample. That's how Ridge Stand ll was born. 

This is the 3rd project since we created the Ridge Stand in 2014. We are grateful for the community and every backer that has supported us along the way. We are always seeking new ideas to improve our products and service. 

We were very pleased to fulfill rewards during for our last product and happy to receive feedback from our backers and customers. We hope to continue providing our supporters with new and exciting products. Thank you for all of your support along the way. We would not be where we are today without your support! Thank you!

Risks and challenges

We are an established firm with seven years of industrial design experience. We have experience designing, producing, and bringing accessories for the Apple products, including the first Ridge Stand. Our manufacturer has already produced samples of Ridge Stand 2.0 series, everything is ready to go.

Shipping Risk: We ship to worldwide locations and outsource to logistics experts. However, the shipping process is not immune to complications (such as weather, customs, and other uncontrollable factors). November to January is a peak shipping season and frequently causes shipping delays. We will do our best to meet your expectations and hope that backers can be patient and understanding.
