Deohako's iPad and iPad mini Case comes with an iPad Wall Mount that works with our twist and click system. No need to buy an extra iPad accessory to use Deohako's iPad Mounting System.
Follow these simple directions to mount your iPad to the wall. Once you have found the ideal place to wall mount your iPad, you will need the following:
- Phillips screwdriver
- Deohako iPad Wall Mount
- 4 screws (comes with Wall Mount)
1. Align the wall mount where you want it.
The top to bottom holes run parallel to the wall, and the left to right holes run parallel to the ceiling. The twist and click ridges align with the top and bottom holes.
2. Take the screwdriver and drill the 4 screws into the holes in the wall mount.
The screws need to be drilled into the wall so that they lay flush with the wall mount. Once all screws have been inserted, tug at the wall mount to confirm it is solidly in place.
3. Line up your iPad Case metal center with the wall mount and click into place.
The iPad Case should be at about a 60 degree angle from landscape view. Once the wall mount pieces are aligned, twist the case to the left (counter-clockwise) to secure the iPad to the wall.
YOU ARE DONE!
Now you have an iPad Wall Mount ready to go. Enjoy and please reach out to Deohako at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
This week I had the opportunity to visit one of our customers, Jerry Rubin, at Wings field outside of Philidelphia to learn more about how general aviation pilots used the Deohako iPad Mounting system.
Jerry flys a Cessna 120 taildragger in the Philadelphia region for pleasure and uses the iPad mini for easy access to aviation maps etc. During our meeting we evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of using an iPad mini yoke mount, iPad mini suction cup mount, and iPad mini kneeboard by Deohako.
First we looked at Jerry's current arrangement; the Deohako Yoke Mount clamp installed behind the yoke directly to the yoke shaft. It was important to install close to the yoke so that we still had full range of motion in the yoke.
This arrangement was good becuase:
-The iPad is "eye-level"
-Does not interfere with the view outside the plane
The drawbacks of using a yokemount include:
-The iPad moves with the yoke making it hard to see while jostling a taildragger during takeoff and landing
-The yoke mount grips very firm to the yoke but there is some vibration since it is lifted several inches above fulcrum
-There may be some instrument obstruction depending on the make and model of your aircraft. In the Cessna 120 this was negligible however.
-The clamp fit's most general aviation planes but not all. Shafts greater than 4 inches will need a bigger clamp. We are working on a new clamp that will accept larger shafts so stay tuned!!
Next we looked at the Heavy Duty Suction Cup:
Advantages of using a suction cup include:
-Easy installation and removal anywhere there is a smooth flat surface
-iPad does not move relative to yoke
-iPad can be installed in several locations (passenger side, pilot side, front windshield, etc.)
Drawbacks of using a suction cup inculde:
-May obstruct window view depending on placement
-May need to look-up from instrumentation (Not great for pilots using bi-focals like Jerry)
-Since many small planes use very thin plexiglass the vibration can cause even a heavy duty suction mount to lose grip during flight (NOTE: This issue will occur with ALL suction mounts from ANY company worldwide)
At the end of our meeting I showed Jerry the Joby GorillaPod Zoom attachment and how it could be used as an Aviation Kneeboard. Please note the below images were taken at an earlier date.
Using the iPad as a kneeboard has many Advantages Including:
-Does not obstruct view out of windows
-Does not obstruct view of instrumentation
-Does not move with Yoke
-Easy to install and remove
-Fits all aircraft types (and leg sizes)
Disadvatages of using an iPad kneeboard include:
-Not optimal for pilots using kneeboard to take notes with pen and paper (although there are notetaking apps using a stylus)
-Requires pilots to "Look Down" into the lap away from instruments while viewing iPad
Jerry's Conclusion: Jerry decided that after evaluating all the available gear, the kneeboard suited his needs the best becuase:
- His Cesna 120 taildragger requires jostling during landing and takeoff so a yokemount moved the iPad too much and the vibration was distracting for him.
-Jerry uses bifocals so mounting a suction cup above the instrumentation meant he would need to lift his head to see the iPad mini screen. Also, his windows are made of plexiglass which flex so any heavy duty suction cup will eventually lose grip.
-The kneeboard is stationary, easy to see with bifocals, easy to install and remove, and does not obstruct instruments or the outside of the windows.
-An added bonus is that the bendable legs allow him to use the iPad mini as a headrest mount in his car while driving his grand daughter, an aspiring artist, around town :)

Productivity is the key at work. With the increase of tablets in the workplace, employees are finding new ways to utilize their iPad each day. Here are a few popular ways to utilize your iPad Mounting System at work.
1) Client Presentation iPad Mount
Forget the project when you have intimate client meetings, or small team meetings where you want to work through a concept or show the progress of what you have been working on. Pull up your status report on your iPad, or the latest projections to show your boss, or that latest design concept to show the client. Even better, use the iPad as a presentation device during an interview and wow your potential employers with your tech savvy thinking.
2. Video Chat with Team Members via iPad Wall Mount
You likely have team members spread across the country or maybe even the world. Keep up with them better through video chatting on your iPad. Mount the iPad to your wall in your office so that you can work effectively while talking with your team members. Have a client that you call up regularly? Add them to video chat to share concepts and ideas.
Even better, when you are not using the iPad for video chats, put the iPad on photo display, and use it as a digital picture frame.
3. Use your iPad as a Second Computer Screen
Hook your iPad up to your computer to screate a second display screen while working. Easily mount the iPad next to your computer for versatile screen space. Pick it up off the desk and take it with you to the next meeting.
We spend a significant amount of time on the go. Here are just some of the best ways to use the iPad while out and about.
Clamp your iPad to the handlebar of your bike and use it as a GPS
Suction your iPad mini to your front windshield and use it as a GPS
Attach the iPad to the stroller handlebar and use it as a music player
Attach the iPad to the inside of the stroller so your child can play games while you get some exercise
Mount the iPad to the back of a car headrest for an on the go entertainment system for passengers.
Make a stand out of the GorillaPod SLR Zoom while traveling on an airplane
Stick the iPad to the backside of your tray while traveling on a airplane
Use the bendable suction cup to attach the iPad to the bathroom mirror and watch the news while you shave
Aviation is very near and dear to this company. My father and brother are career pilots. My grandfather, cousin, and I obtained our private pilots licenses years ago. Needless to say, when designing the Deohako system, aviation was a very important consideration. Here are four of the most useful ways to use the Deohako products as a pilot.
1. Yoke Mount - What is the frequency for ground control again? Mount an iPad mini to the yoke and have all the airport information right there!
Millions of people use the iPad at work... but do they get the most out of it? The Deohako System was designed to get the most out of an iPad whatever the situation. In dynamic work environments the Deohako system shines.
