If you have one of ZeroChroma’s neat Folio-Slide cases for iPad Air/iPad Air 2/iPad Mini, or you are considering getting one, you should definitely check out ZeroChroma’s Slide-Mounts. Available as a set of two for $29.95, the Slide-Mounts expand the functionality of the ZeroChroma Folio-Slide cases and allow you to do some pretty cool things. They both work on the same principle—the ZeroChroma Folio-Slide case has a groove along the top of the case which allows the cover to slide on and off. When the cover is off, and the groove is empty, it is free to slide on and off other things, such as this set of Slide-Mounts. It is an easy and elegant solution, like all of ZeroChroma’s products that it has been my pleasure to review.
The set of two comes with a Headrest Slide-Mount and an All-Surface Slide-Mount. The Headrest Slide-Mount is pretty self-explanatory: it fits over the headrest in your car and allows your kiddies to be entertained as you drive along in peace. Other companies have come out with headrest mounts—what is nice about ZeroChroma’s is its simplicity and ease of use. No complicated straps or additional case to bundle your iPad into—just an elegant slide on and slide off. What could be better? I installed mine in my car with no difficulty and found it to be simple and easy to use. If I had little children, I could easily see how it could be a daily use item.
The All-Surface Slide-Mount, like its name suggests, is for all surfaces, and it is a slide-mount that has a one-time-use adhesive on one side that allows it to be attached to any hard surface. The adhesive can be cleanly removed if you wish to discontinue using the All-Surface Slide-Mount in that place, but cannot be re-attached in another area. That caveat aside, it is a pretty neat idea to be able to stick this All-Surface Slide-Mount up somewhere in your house and be able to slide your iPad into it when you want it temporarily hanging somewhere. The kitchen or bathroom are applications that immediately jump to mind. So, if you have the All-Surface Slide Mount attached in your kitchen and you want to look at recipes while you are cooking, just slide your iPad in its Folio-Slide case onto the Slide-Mount and you are good to go.
ZeroChroma makes innovative, high quality products and the Slide-Mounts are no exception. Many thanks to the kind people at ZeroChroma for sending me out this sample to review.
