The Ultimate Guide to Mounting Your Tablet

Following ruggedness, mobility is one of the most important requirements for companies investing in a rugged tablet for their workplace; but sometimes even a mobile tablet needs to be kept in place. A stationary tablet can provide numerous benefits, yet often customers need the ability to quickly take the tablet with themThat’s where mounting a rugged tablet with a snap mount comes in.  


Tablets can be mounted for any number of reasons. Regardless of whether you need to mount your tablet to a forklift, in a vehicle, to a wall, or to a desk, there are some simple and easy ways to accomplish this.  


It starts with MobileDemand’s patented snap mount plate. The small plate on the back of MobileDemand’s tablets and cases allows for easy mounting nearly anywhere. Designed for quick release, it’s the perfect tool for those who need their tablet securely mounted in place one moment, but mobile the next. 


MobileDemand Patented Snap Mount System  


That’s just one part of the equation. The second part is the mounting system itself. If, for instance, you are mounting the tablet to a desk or a wall, you simply add a snap mount rail, arm, and wall plate. At MobileDemand these accessories are offered individually or as part of a bundle. The arm and plate, as with many of our mounting systems, utilize a ball-and-socket style assembly, making almost any angle easy to achieve while maintaining the strength of the system. It only takes a few screws to secure the wall plate in place; the rest of the system is also quick and easy to assemble and you’re done. Check out how simple using a snap mount can be.


You might think mounting a tablet to a vehicle is far more complicated than mounting it to a wall or desk; then again you might be surprised with just how easy it truly is. In fact, installing a vehicle mount is so simple it can be completed in 5 minutes or less, typically requiring the use of only a single socket wrench. To prove this, we made a video showing how trouble-free it really is:


When you mount your tablet in a vehicle, battery life is no longer a concern. Some mounts are designed to double as charging stations for your rugged tablet, either being hardwired directly to the battery or by using the cigarette lighter outlet in your vehicle. 


Forklifts, on the other hand, are not quite as simple, but they don’t have to be complicated. Mounting a tablet on a forklift is an easy task for someone with the right tools and a level head. There are more options to choose from including where you will mount the tablet and which mount to use. We wrote about this earlier in our blog post, "10 Questions to Consider Before Mounting Your Tablet."  


The take away is this: mounting a tablet is an easy and efficient way to increase productivity while keeping your tablet safe and secure, yet mobile if needed.
