The latest mount allows consumers to capture stable video and images, enhances app usage, and makes enjoying content on a tablet more comfortable."
The GripTight Mount PRO for Tablet (US MSRP $39.95) is a compact mounting solution that fits tablets measuring 5 to 7.5 inches and attaches to any tripod with a ¼"-20 attachment point. Constructed of durable ABS plastic, this super-stable design includes over-molded stainless steel plates that slide and lock to securely hold a tablet in place – with or without a protective case – and create an extra-stable attachment for all types of media viewing, photo and video. The GripTight Mount PRO allows users to not only position their devices in portrait or landscape mode, but allows them to adjust the tilt angle to avoid glare and capture the perfect imagery or view at the optimal angle.
