Great product. Works perfectly with both iPads in this household. The little silicone rounds didn't stick very well, so we replaced them for better quality ones. Other than that: lovely little item

Hoe 3 vrienden ertoe kwamen om de Friendly Ipad Stand te ontwikkelen, zonder budget, contract of vergadering
The Dutch Simon Blazer was 79 years old at the time. He’s got two right hands. But no iPad. Even so, when a friend asked him to design and build a wooden iPad Stand he was fascinated. Dutch ingenuity, combined with some good friends made this Dutch grandpa the iPad grandpa.
One day Martijn Aslander wanted to put his iPad on his desk to display it. Alas the official iPad Dock from Apple was expensive and only available in the US. He went over to Simon and asked if he could help. Sure enough, within an hour there was the first wooden iPad Stand. It worked absolutely great. The iPad fitted beautifully, it could be used in portrait and in landscape mode, and it just felt right. David Rudolf Bakker came over, took some great pictures of the first iPad Stand and posted a funny blogpost online. The three Dutch entrepreneurs promised to make the iPad Stand if they got 50 people interested. Little did they know..Download the whole story and all hi-res photos from www.woodenipadstands.com/press
THE WOODEN IPAD STAND STORY!
Creators David Bakker, Martijn Aslander, Annemieke Nieborg and the late Simon ‘iPad Grandpa’ Blazer ☨.
Within two days the blogpost was picked up by the main technology website in the world, Wired. Shortly followed by CrunchGear and The Unofficial Apple Weblog (which is a huge thing for an Apple related product). The result was the Dutchmen had hundreds of interested people for the Friendly iPad Stand. Now they had to actually go on and make hundreds of the $5 iPad Stands.
Simon’s woodshop became the Friendly iPad Stand factory. A couple of days later a small mountain of Friendly iPad Stands was ready. It did cost the gentlemen some actual blood, sweat and tears, but happy with the result none the less. Another friend, Annemieke Nieborg, helped the guys a whole lot by taking care of the shipping. In only a matter of days, something that started as a small practical solution, became a small business.
Now shipping to over 23 countries worldwide and having sold thousands, the Dutchmen are looking to grow their business even further.
All Wooden iPad Stands are now handmade in a social workplace for the handicapped in Holland.
And the amazing thing? There were no meetings. No contracts, no paperwork. With the help of the internet in a mere three days the ball was rolling quite well. It’s an amazing adventure for the three Dutchmen, and just goes to show what you can do with a piece of wood and some of that fine Dutch ingenuity. It even earned Simon and iPad. And the ‘iPad grandpa’ nickname.
