The use of iPads in public is on the rise, and in the near future we will only see more and more of the devices in public spaces, from retail stores to trade shows and hospitals. Their applications make our lives easier. Not only that but they represent an opportunity for smaller businesses to invest in systems, which used to cost considerably more to implement. The versatility of iPads could be their biggest strength and biggest weakness.
A stolen till from a shop, or the screen of an old touch screen kiosk are of very little use to a thief after they have made off with the cash. However iPads are highly sought after items in their own right. They can be used for personal use just as much as business and even education.
iPad use is on the rise and so is theft!
The incorporation of iPads in public spaces will continue to rise, and thieves have been keeping a close eye on such innovation. Some techniques at theft prevention have proved solely inadequate and have given rise to such techniques as the cut-and-run, in which an apparently safe iPad is stolen in a matter of seconds.
The secure anti-theft iPad mount developed by Gripzo is the answer to this conundrum, its special Gorilla security grip functions perfectly in any public situation. iPads, and other tablets for that matter, are not designed to incorporate an anchor point for the attachment of cables. As such ways have to be found to attach the iPad to the cable. Some of the cheaper solutions use simple adhesive, which does little to stop a determined criminal. Furthermore, attempting to fix such measures directly to the device often leads to blemishes and damage being done to the shell of the tablet, making it a counterproductive method overall.
Gripzo’s Gorilla grip stylishly encases the iPad within a mount, the mount is adaptable and can be set into 4 different positions with a grand total of 72 degrees of manoeuvrability. Not only that, its durable steel composition eliminates the cut-and-run techniques once and for all.
Amazingly it eliminates the possibility of theft, whilst simultaneously allowing the tablet to remain mobile if desired; with the use of a key the whole system can be unlocked in 3 seconds! This is a perfect solution not only for retail environments that want to give customers an option to experience the tablet, but for any industry which needs to leave the iPad unattended in its secure mount and also make use of its portability when needed.
