Step 5: Assemble the Pieces

We found it was easier to attach this to the wall first without the iPad rather than attempt to attach it with the iPad already inside the mount.

To finish installing:
1- Attach the wall mount securely to a wall of your choosing.
2- Point the back plate 90 degrees up - so that you can lay the iPad on it's back, flat, onto the back acrylic plate.
3- Set your ipad securely on it, try to put it dead center.
4- Lay the top acrylic plate over the iPad.
5- Secure the plates together with the screws, posts and nuts.
***insert the unthreaded posts on each of the 4 corners between the front acrylic plate and the back acrylic plate before screwing it together***
6- Double check that everything is lined up correctly and tighten the screws. Do not' tighten them too hard as the
plexi bows easily.
7- Once everything is secured - turn the iPad wall mount to face you and enjoy!

Why don't you just put velcro on the wall and velcro on your ipad and then stick your ipad to the wall?
If you use velcro, it will leave sticky residue on your wall and your iPad, though it is easier than laser cutting a wall mount. If you do decide to do that though, just use a blowdrier and blow on the back of the iPad to get the velcro off without a sticky mess.
thanks for the advice :)
Its cute and all but velcro is 3 bucks and takes 1 min to install
We developed awesome solution for mounting almost any kind of tablet on almost any surface and it is a version of Velcro but perfectly balanced and shaped. It is called Hedgie as Hedgehog carries an apple symbolism in mind. Sticky residues (if any) can always be removed with normal lemon juice.
