How to Install an iPad Dashboard Holder

After you’ve chosen your perfect iPad holder dashboard from Padholder Products, the next step is getting it securely installed in your vehicle. Don’t worry, you don’t need professional skills or special tools to get this done. Here’s a simple guide to help you through the process.

Step-by-step guide on installing an iPad dashboard holder

  1. Unbox the Product: Start by unboxing your new iPad dashboard holder and making sure all the necessary components are present. This typically includes the holder, the mount, and the installation hardware.
  2. Prepare your Dashboard: Clean the area on your dashboard where you intend to install the holder. This helps to ensure a secure fit and adhesion.
  3. Attach the Mount: Follow the provided instructions to attach the mount to your dashboard. This usually involves peeling off the backing of an adhesive pad and pressing the mount firmly onto your dashboard. Some mounts may require screwing into the dashboard. Remember to align it properly before securing.
  4. Attach the Holder to the Mount: Once the mount is securely attached to your dashboard, the next step is to attach the holder to the mount. Ensure it’s firmly attached and can hold the weight of your iPad.
  5. Insert your iPad: Now, simply insert your iPad into the holder. Check that it’s secure and easily accessible.

Tips to avoid common installation issues

  • Check Compatibility: Ensure your chosen iPad holder dashboard is compatible with your specific iPad model and your vehicle’s dashboard.
  • Follow Instructions: Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Allow Adhesive to Set: If your mount uses adhesive, give it enough time to set before attaching the holder and iPad. This will ensure a secure and sturdy mount.
  • Avoid Extreme Temperatures: Extreme temperatures can affect the adhesive used in some mounts. Avoid installing your iPad dashboard holder in very hot or cold conditions.
  • Check Adjustability: Once installed, check the adjustability of your holder. It should swivel and tilt easily for optimal viewing.
  • Safety First: Never install your iPad holder dashboard in a location that obstructs your view of the road or interferes with vehicle controls.

Setting up your iPad dashboard holder correctly ensures it functions optimally, providing a secure place for your iPad while you’re on the go.
