MyClip on Galaxy Tab

The MyClip is the only Tablet kneeboard solution versatile enough to to hold the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

The MyClip Thigh, designed by an airline pilot, secures the Galaxy Tab leaving the pilot’s hands free to fly the plane. Clips attach in either portrait or landscape mode, and a leg strap positions the Galaxy Tab on the thigh for one or two-handed use. While the faux suede strap can hardly be felt, the rubberized MyClip clamps on the Galaxy Tab itself providing a 100% secure grip so pilots have no concern about their tablet falling or interfering with the controls. The MyClip combines strength with aesthetics so that when the flight is over the MyClip could either be instantly removed from the Galaxy Tab or left in place, perhaps for a friendly debrief at the coffee shop.

"The aviation world is quickly seeing the utility of the Tablet Computer as an electronic kitbag, but the accessories out there are big and bulky and fail to take advantage of the elegance of the Galaxy Tab design," said Jim Peters V.P. of Product Development. "Our product retains the beauty of Samsung’s design while increasing the flexibility of use — something no other product offers.”

Key features of the MyClip Thigh:

  •     Works with Galaxy Tab 10.1, HP Touchpad, iPad and XOOM
  •     Comfortable leg strap made of faux suede
  •     Clips can be positioned in landscape or portrait mode
  •     Clips hold Galaxy Tab gently but firmly without sliding
  •     Stabilizing straps allow for easy two-handed typing
  •     Fits over most skins and some holders
  •     Less than 4 ounces and small enough to hold in your palm
  •     Open design keeps Galaxy Tab cool in even the warmest cockpits

The MSRP for the MyClip Thigh is $39.95. The product is available at selected retailers as well as online at: http://www.tietco.com/

Collaborating with the engineering firm Watershot Inc., MyClip Inc. brings innovative design along with high quality manufacturing to produce exceptional products for the cockpit.
