DON'T DROP YOUR TABLET!!!!!

Intro: DON'T DROP YOUR TABLET!!!!!


This INSTRUCTABLE came about today because I found that the HP Touchpad was entirely too smooth and obnoxious to grip.
Let's have a look!

Step 1: Material

I used a few feet of RUBBER grip tape, the type they use for placing on steps.
Having this on the back helps TREMENDOUSLY, and it keeps the plastic back from getting scratched all up.
Works great, but something is missing....

Step 2: Gimme a Grip!!!

The screen seems a bit slick where I handle it so....
I punched out some circles and placed them around the bezel where I would commonly grip it and the difference is FANTASTIC!!!
Give it a go and let me know how it works for you!!!

    i would go with a gel case instead of this, I can afford a $8.99 case to keep the tablet from looking ghetto

    I guess we're all dumfounded that anyone would want to do this. A gel case is readily available from that auction site at a ridiculously low price, it looks neat and it's removeable.

    It's OK.
    I have messages from a few dozen people who like it and have done it.
    Plus a local company that had me do it to about 100 Touchpads so far...

    Besides, A gell case isn't a mod ;)
    Mines removable also..
