Sanus VTM5-S1 iPad 3-in-1 mount with magfit case

Included is the iPad protective case and the articulated arm.

If you use your iPad to find recipes or how-to videos, then there are probably times when you need to use it hands-free — times when you'd like to keep your iPad visible, but safely out of harm's way from the stove or sink. The Sanus VTM5 3-in-1 mount solves that problem. The system consists of a MagFit™ iPad case and an articulated arm. Mount your iPad on the wall, under a counter, 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 accomodates the Apple® Smart Cover® for added convenience.

On the back is a powerful neodymnium magnet which secures the case to the rest of the mount — but it will also attach to any metallic surface. So you can "mount"  the case on your refrigerator or filing cabinet just using the case's magnet.

An articulated arm

The VTM5 includes a compact arm that unfolds outwards into three sections. You can mount the arm to a wall, or 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 arm's made of durable aluminum with a satin finish — it's both strong and light.

VTM5 iPad Mount

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I use this product in my kitchen to mount the iPad to follow for recipes. Worked great for Thanksgiving! Also handy just for having iPad available but off the counter. This product is well made, easily adjustable, and sturdy. I would definitely recommend it. When not in use, it folds out of the way. Also with the clear iPad holder, it is not very visible when not in use. Overall, great product.

Pros: Holds iPad well; easily adjustable; sturdy; easy to install. 5 stars!

Cons: None.
