Hold your tablet with TwoHands II

on Monday, October 21st, 2013

Felix came onto the scene with the MonkeyOh tablet holder, which looked as if a monkey was holding your tablet for you.  It was cute and functional, but it didn’t really fold up nicely to take along in your gear bag.  The TwoHands  holders do; they look a little bit like a giant clothes pin.
