I’ve always dreamed of having the walls of my home built from touchscreen displays so that I could walk up to any wall and just start tapping away. I know I’m a long time from that, but a new iPad accessory got me a little closer to that dream.
The accessory is called the “Dockem” and it is a wall mount for your iPad (or other iOS device). The accessory comes in two brackets, with available packages that include adhesives, that are to be attached to the wall. For set up, simply remove the adhesive strips and attach one end to the Dockem and the other end to the wall.
For those worried about wall damage, fear not as the adhesives do not leave any marks or residue on the wall after removal, however I cannot speak for all wall/paint types.
The Dockem also features two types of adhesives (you can choose one or both). The first adhesive is “versatility” which is essentially a Velcro wall adhesive that enables you to move the Dockem around to different walls that use the Velcro strips. The second is the “strength” adhesive which sticks to the wall and the Dockem and is designed as a more permanent wall mounting solution.
Once the iPad is in the Dockem, the device simply rests in place and is not gripped by the Dockem. The left bracket features a small hook to ensure your iPad does not fall forward and each bracket has a separate cable management slot if you want to connect (or simply store) the Apple dock connector to USB cable.
Wall Mount Your iPad!
The Dockem is available on its own starting at $7.99 (does not include adhesives) or in a variety of packages (including adhesives) depending on your needs. For reference, I have the “Dockem Versatility Package” ($10.99).
For first-time buyers, the website provides great tutorial videos for the adhesive install, so definitely take advantage of those resources.
