Tips To Secure An iPhone Or iPod Touch At Your Next Trade Show

iPhone and iPod Cable Lock Security Kit

iPhone and iPod Cable Lock Kit

If you are looking for a secure iPhone stand for your next trade show we have a few suggestions that might help.

Cable and lock solutions for the iPhone or iPod Touch are popular for events and exhibitions. These type of secure displays offer the flexibility for your customers handling the iPhone without being able to walk away with it.

Stay away from mounts that use permanent adhesives that attach to the back of the iPhone. These mounts cause damage to the case and are nearly impossible to remove. Look for brackets that secure with tension and can be easily removed. The opposite side of the cable should attach to any fixed object like a table leg or an anchor that mounts under the table.

Lastly, consider price. iPhone lock and cable security kits range in price from $29.95 all the way up to $89.95 depending on features. Visit newPCgadgets.com to see their line of iPhone and iPod Security Kits.

How To Choose The Best iPad Stand For Your Next Trade Show

iPad Trade-Show Secure Stand

iPad Trade-Show Secure Stand

What to consider when looking for a secure iPad or iPad mini stand for your next trade-show.

iPad stands should offer flexibility so that customers can interact effectively with your new App or presentation. This will require a tether or cable so that they can lift the iPad out of the stand but not be able to walk aways with it. When looking for an iPad stand with a locking cable, look for a minimalist design so that the iPad is the focus and not the stand.

iPad stands should offer an optimum viewing angle in either the landscape or portrait position. This is key to an effective trade-show display. Also, look for an iPad or iPad mini stand that allows the charging cable to remain connected. This is important since you don’t want to interrupt your presentation to recharge your iPad.

Finally, consider price. Secure or locking iPad trade-show stands can range in price from $50 all the way up to $200 each. If you do your homework you should be able to find the right stand to enhance your presentation at a reasonable price. Visit newPCgadgets.com to see their iPad Trade-Show Stands.

What To Look For When Buying A Laptop Stand

my cluttered MacBook desk If your laptop workspace looks anything like mine then you know space is at premium. I wanted a laptop stand that could save space and put my MacBook at a better viewing angle. I also hate using my keyboard on a flat surface, it just feels awkward and strains my wrists.

New MacBook Riser in BlueSurprisingly, after doing some research I couldn’t find a product that met my needs, so I decided to design and build one myself. In choosing a material I decided to go with acrylic to add color to my new laptop stand. My main issue is raising my MacBook for better viewing, so I built a tapered angle into the laptop riser with a non-skid rubber pad to rest the laptop on. By positioning my Macbook up or down on the angled surface I can adjust the viewing angle. This also makes using the keyboard much more comfortable.

Laptop Stand And Space-SaverI was able to find many laptop stands that could raise my MacBook but what I couldn’t find is a space-saver when I’m not using it. As you can tell from my desk, pictured above, I need more room. With my Laptop stand I designed a rear pocket so that I could hold my MacBook at a 90 degree angle when not in use. This saves me a ton of room and it looks cool. I know this because my friends keep asking me to make one for them.

I recently added it to our website and it has been one of our best sellers. If you would like more details please visit Laptop Lift 90 from newPCgadgets.com

How To Secure The iPhone From Theft For Business, Retail And Trade-Shows

Apple does not provide a cable lock, anti-theft solution for displaying the iPhone 5, 6, 7 or iPod Touch for business. As a result, companies are always looking for a solution for their counter display, retail store or upcoming trade-show. Audio alarm cables, like you see at the Apple store are one solution but they are very expensive and are designed for a large quantity of displays in order to be cost effective. Also, they are not very useful at noisy trade-shows.

Locking iPhone Security Cable

iPhone Security Brackets And Cable Mount

Another option would be a hardware solution utilizing a locking bracket and cable assembly. This solution typically provides outer-brackets that secure with tension and a center cable that attach to a fixed object. This solution offers flexibility for people handling the iPhone and prevents removal (unlike the audio alarm). These security kits typically sell for under $50.

For large retail operations the audio alarm solution may be the better choice. For trade-shows and counter mounts the bracket and cable solution would most likely be the better fit. For a cable lock solution visit newPCgadgets.com
