Don’t Be Fooled by This Copy

iPad Clamshell

Patent Pending Swivel Stop

Whenever I hear someone say, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” I know it’s because they just copied something. We see that a lot with our designs and our innovations. At EXHIBITOR2013, there were two exhibits, one from a Chinese manufacturer and one from an American distributor, that were EXACT copies of our designs. Sigh.

Recently, we stumbled upon an iPad swivel mount by a competitor. The clamshell “seemed” similar to our patent pending Swivel Stop™. It rotated 180 degrees, encased an iPad in a clamshell frame, and looked similar both front and back. Aside from that, it couldn’t be more different, but you wouldn’t know that unless you compared them side by side. Well . . .  we decided to save you the trouble because we didn’t want you to be confused. 😉

So, in short, the original looks better, functions better, and has more features. And as if that wasn’t enough, the Classic Exhibits version is also about $20 cheaper. Go figure.
