Sanus VTM1-S1 iPad 4-in-1 mount

Included is the iPad protective case, the articulated arm, and desk stand.

Sure, the iPad is handy — but sometimes you need an extra hand to use it. For example: it's a great virtual cookbook. But perching that beautiful piece of high-tech hardware precariously next to the sink so you can use both hands for food preparation can be a recipe for disaster. The Sanus VTM1 4-in-1 mount solves that problem. It consists of a MagFit™ iPad case, an articulated arm, and a detachable desk stand. Mount your iPad on the wall, under a counter, on a table, or even on your refrigerator.

A versatile case

The MagFit case is made of a durable polycarbonate material that provides protection without adding a lot of weight. Its contoured back makes it easy to hold, even for long periods of time. Simply snap your iPad 2 or new iPad (iPad 3) into place for a secure fit. And the case accommodates the Apple® Smart Cover® for added convenience.

On the back is a powerful neodymnium magnet which secures the case to the articulated arm — but it will also attach to any metallic surface. So you can "mount"  the case on your refrigerator, and have your iPad display a slideshow of your favorite pictures or family artwork, for example.

The articulated arm

The VTM1's compact arm unfolds outwards into three sections. Attach the arm to the desk stand to simply place your iPad on any flat surface. You can also mount the arm to a wall, or even underneath a counter. Sanus includes the necessary hardware. The arm has smooth, 360° motion. When attached, you can rotate the case so your iPad has either a portrait or landscape orientation. The mount and stand are made of durable aluminum with a satin finish — it's both strong and light.
