    I use an iPad for tracks onstage, and needed someting to attach to my mike stand. The iKlip is the PEREFECT solution. Many thanks Sweetwater for suggesting this item

    The iKlip Rocks

    What a great idea. No extra music stands to carry around. Simple to use and install and rugged enough to throw in the equipment trailer. Well dont throw it. We are using it for the lead singers iPad and she really enjoys it. Took about 5 minutes to install on the mic stand, and the adjustability is endless.

    A Godsend!

    I play in a musical combo and use my iPad for lyrics and backing tracks. This holder is sturdy and easy to adjust to any viewing angle and fits any mic stand. A great find!

    Sturdy and effective

    I purchased iKlip after breaking a similar product by another company several times. iKlip seems much sturdier in design and manufacture. I can leave the mounting device on my mic stand without fear of breaking it in transport to and from local gigs. Very handy.

    Fits like a glove, sturdy and easy to secure to mic stand. Only one minor complaint - to change orientation you have to unscrew (or loosen quite a bit) iPad holding bracket from mount. It would have been great if this was a spring loaded connection which would allow incremental rotation without having to unscrew pieces.

    High tech music stand

    Nice idea. Great for scrolling tab while on stage or studio.

    Near perfect! Works with new iPad too!

    Love this thing! Before I had notes hanging next to my mic stand but this is so much more convenient. I thought my eyes would see the boom but oddly, they didn't. My usage is for song notes (key, funky bridge, etc) not full song charts so maybe you use would make this more or less useful. For my needs, it's the perfect application. Only thing keeping it from 5 stars is that it's bulkier than I imaged when broken down. Not a deal breaker, still love it, still think it's the best, just realize it'll take up more real estate in your gig bag than you may realize.

    Does What It Is Supposed To Do

    Simple and professional in appearance. Not perfect, but it does the job without major annoyance. If you're considering this, be aware: It requires a screwdriver to move from vertical to horizontal; the boom or mic holder as well as the locking nut must be removed to detach the iKlip, so it's not easily portable; while the iPad 2 adapters lock firmly in place, I recommend gluing them in place to prevent loss (which happened to me).

    Well built. Good design.

    I bought this to free myself from music stands I am impress with the build and design. It's parts are solid. Ilike the fact that it will handle the original iPad and the iPad 2 which is thinner by using the included adaptors. It sets up and tears down very quickly.

    Rugged and Road-Worthy

    Simple design, flexible, fairly easy to adjust and most importantly, road worthy.

    IKLIP to the Rescue

    Simple and Sturdy. If you are using this for a gig, which I am, I need simple. this is it. Locks into place horizontal or vertical. And the sliding two piece stand mount is genious.

    The i Klip has worked beautifully. I have played indoor and outdoor gigs and found it to be a simple, largely unnoticed aid for me. It has met my expectations.

    Pricy but good

    It's hard to digest how they want $40 bucks for this, but it IS a good piece. The slip-type assembly makes it easy to get on and off of the mic stand for storage and moving and (with the adapters that are included) fits the iPad 2 quite well.

    Like I said...it's pricy, but good.

    Great, but wish they would make one to fit sleeves!

    LOVE this thing, but only wish they'd make one that could hold your iPad that has a sleeve on it. C'mon - it can't be THAT hard!

    Also it would be great if it had the ability to go from landscape to portrait more easily. Currently you have to pull off the iPad, unscrew the mount, rotate it, then screw it back in. Surely a spring loaded mount could easily be done to solve that problem.

    Helpful and sturdy, good piece

    This is a great piece of equipment. I would like it better if it were adjustable. I have a Xoom I would like to use too. However, for what it is, this is a nice addition to the mic stand.

    Great addon

    Has been a great addition to our church sound/media system. Having the Ipad available at the hands of our band has added some great opportunities for us.

    A good way to hold Tha'Pad

    As usual, my rep Dave Brow got this send to an APO pretty quick and painless. I had to find a screw in my toolset to replace the screw that was supposed to come inside the box, which was not there.

    After that, it has served very well to hold the iPad when using the guitar with Garageband. I like that it tilts up and down to adjust if you are sitting down or standing up.

    I thought that the holder would have had a locking mechanism to move the holder from horizontal to vertical, but it is fixed, so if you want to move your iPad from vertical to horizontal, you have to take out the screw and adjust.

    Those are my two criticisms, the missing screw and the horizontal/vertical adjustments. The rest, very well done.

    Do NOT buy this

    The first time I used the iKlip, I had to struggle to get my iPad out, and when I did there was a small crack in it that expanded as I used my iPad.
    So I replaced the screen, and then put masking tape on my iPad to protect it and kept using the iKlip.

    Maybe that crack was a fluke, but here's the thing: the iKlip does not hold your iPad securely. Not at all. When set up for portait orientation, the piece at the bottom of the iKlip does not hold the iPad. The iPad rests on this part, not held inside it, and not only that but the iPad is somehow held by the rest of the iKlip at such an angle that this "bottom rest" doesn't even catch it. When I used the iKlip, I positioned it so that it was basically resting on my keyboard, which could catch the iPad when it fell through. Which it did.

    I bought the K&M iPad clip today. Do yourself a huge favor and spend a few extra bucks (yes I said a few; but not here, my friends) on this beautiful thing. The K&M clip does the job so beautifully and simply and WELL, and feels and is so secure, and also holds its angle which the iKlip didn't (another reason to rest it on my keyboard the way I did), that I can't help but feel that the iKlip must exist as some sort of prank.

    Tried it, didn't like it

    Adapter clips are a nuisance, positioning is limited.
