Super Simple iPad Kneeboard

The iPad is way too slippery to try to hold on your lap in an airplane so, I have been looking for a good way to secure it. This morning I was looking at the M-Edge iPad case I bought right after I got the tablet and at my current kneeboard. It occurred to me that I might be able to put the two together for an easy solution.

The case has a strap across the back that is supposed to be a hand grip. I found it much too tight to be very useful for that purpose but, it is a surprisingly good fit for the kneeboard. I reversed the kneeboard strap – so it ran over the face rather than over the back- them just slid it through the hand strap as in this picture. One minute is all it took for to a super simple way to secure the iPad while in an aircraft.

I am looking into securing the iPad while in flight too. I hope to fly some today and find that solution.
