Frequently Asked Questions

What is GoPad?

GoPad gives you smartphone mobility and laptop productivity in a single device, by allowing you to 'wear' your iPad or tablet and effectively use it hands free.

While you’re in motion, you can either snap the GoPad open to use the touchscreen or else snap it shut to carry the tablet like a shoulder-bag, or flat against your body.

When you stop at a desk, the GoPad’s integrated stand deploys instantly for increased productivity. If you connect to a keyboard, mouse and monitor then your desktop experience is like using a laptop.

How does the GoPad attach to the tablet?

The GoPad has an elegant and versatile mounting solution. It uses 3M Dual Lock™ Reclosable Fastener to grip the tablet, it forms a tight bond with more than enough strength for this mission-critical joining task.

The beauty of using Dual-Lock is that it enables the GoPad to fit a wide variety of tabletsizes.

How does the GoPad protect the tablet?

All tablet owners fear dropping and breaking their device and the GoPad has many features to protect the tablet.

  • The primary protective feature is of course the drop prevention that’s inherent to being able to wear the tablet.
  • While using the GoPad during vigorous activity, tablet protection is maximized by using the included GoBelt accessory.
  • The folded swingarm forms an aluminum cage that extends past all sides of the tablet.
  • The folded swingarm provides a secure handhold for using the touchscreen.

How much does it cost?

The retail price for the current stock of GoPads is AU$180.00, plus GST (quantity discounts available).

How does the GoBelt accessory work?

The elastic GoBelt belt is unspooled from storage on the swingarm. This firmly secures the GoPad to your torso so wearing it feels like wearing a buttoned shirt.

This mode enables the tablet to be carried comfortably during vigorous work or play yet it’s instantly available for hands-free use.

How does the swingarm mechanism work?

The GoPad swingarm can be quickly and easily locked into any of its four operational positions. To actuate the mechanism, you simply pull out on the spring-loaded arms to release two rotational locks. Gravity causes the tablet to swing so you can simply release the arms to re-lock the tablet as it reaches the desired position.
