Ten One Design’s new Mountie+ is an update to its existing Mountie, a device that’s designed to allow you to attach an iPad or iPhone to your laptop for use as a second display. The Mountie+, which I’ve been using for the last few weeks, was created for Apple’s larger 10.5 and 12.9-inch iPad models.
With the Mountie+, I can attach an iPad to the left side, right side, or top of my MacBook Pro using a simple double clamp mechanism. Made from plastic, one side of the clamp buckles onto my MacBook Pro, while the other side is meant to hold the iPad. I had to take my iPad Pro’s Smart Cover off to use Mountie+, but it will work with slim cases attached.
The clamp works using soft pieces of grippy rubber to grasp both the display of the MacBook Pro and the iPad Pro, and there are different sized rubber inserts to fit different devices. The grip is super tight and fitted to both devices, so the iPad Pro is going absolutely nowhere while in the Mountie+. There is absolutely no slippage, and even when I pull on my iPad with a good amount of force, it does not budge.
