If you have a giant & heavy iPad, please read through the detail page and review to see if the table holder holders your iPad without a problem.
One thing that sometimes gets ignored is that the hook width, trying looking for info of the hook width, some brand makes their hook width so tiny, so the gadget doesn’t fit your tablet with a case.
The installation difficulty should also be considered before purchasing to ensure the package is spick and span; sometimes, your tablet holder comes in several parts that need you to assemble.
Make sure your tablet stand has a heavy-duty base. Otherwise, your tablet holder might not be steady enough to hold your tablet. Base and device hook need to be rubber coated with the result that the gadget won’t scratch your table and table. Rubber pads are essential spear parts for tablet holders; rubber enhances the fraction between each contact surface.
Last but not least, try looking for ergonomic products or brands that care about user experience.

Know Your Using Scenarios

Each scenario corresponds to different features. Some tablet stands are perfect for outdoor and business trips; some are designed for sitting on a desk, some are created for cars, some are invented for kids or beds. It’s recommended to have different tablet mounts for each scenario, but if you are a minimalist, try looking for an all-purpose tablet holder. Lamicall DP05 is a nice all-purpose tablet stand. 

Choose the Right Material

Metal has its lovely texture; metal is a relatively heavy material to carry and not the best material for an extremely cold environment. Wood-look warm and cozy but cannot be resistant to corrosive fungi, as well as fire. Plastic products are less stable but very lightweight. Fabric will not hurt your child but can be flimsy. If you need to do work on a tablet holder, fabric products are not the best choice.
Despite the superior versatility of silicone, there are certain environments and applications in which they will perform poorly or react negatively. They should not be submerged in alcohol or gasoline.
