Wrapsol has some of the clearest film protectors and I currently use them on my iPhone 4S and iPad 2. A new product they recently introduced at CES 2012 is the non-slip Grip Pad. This thin film sticks onto the back of your iPad (or any other device), and will allow the device to stay put when it’s resting on your legs or any other surface. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
Within the box you’ll find the large Grip Pad and some simple instructions. The material used is what Wrapsol calls tactilla, a new age gripping technology made from polyurethane. It feels like a cat’s tongue, almost sandpaper-like but much softer and is not sticky at all.
Application is pretty simple. Just peel the backing and stick it onto your iPad. The Grip Pad is really thin so it does not add bulk. Once applied, I was able to rest my iPad comfortably on my thighs on the couch without it slipping. Normally, I would require one hand to prop up the iPad but the Grip Pad solves that problem. Impressively enough, my iPad 2 stayed put on my jeans at an almost 90 degree angle.
Some downsides of the Grip Pad? Obviously it doesn’t look very ‘pretty’ as the classic Apple logo on the back of your iPad will be covered up. Also, I found the Grip Pad to pick up dust and lint easily, but in my early tests it did not affect its grip at all. As for peeling off the Grip Pad (which actually sticks on quite securely), no residue remained.
The Grip Pad retails for $14.95, which isn’t that bad considering it works pretty well. The only issue is the shipping cost to Canada, but in our talks with Wrapsol they told they are currently working on ways to lower costs to Canada. So stay tuned for future updates.
