Treadmill Mounts for an Apple iPad or Other Tablet

Treadmills might be one of the most boring machines I use at Planet Fitness.  Clearly, I’m no workout guru, heck, this is Planet Fitness.  But I know the benefits of a good cardio workout.  I also know the effects of boredom and non-working TVs at Planet Fitness.  hence, our article on treadmill mounts for an Apple iPad or other tablet. When working out at my local Planet Fitness, they have a bank of televisions.  Half don’t work, the other half are tuned into CNN or Fox News.  That just adds to the monotony of working out.  I need something entertaining. … Read more

Tablet Mounts for Wheelchairs

I had to make several visits to a rehabilitation center last year.  I noticed a few patients getting around in wheelchairs with a tablet in their lap.  It didn’t look easy.  There appeared to be a fine balance between moving the wheelchair forward and not dropping the tablet.  These weren’t powered wheelchairs.  Today we’re talking about tablet mounts for wheelchairs. A good wheelchair mount needs to be able to do a few things right.  First, it needs to be easily installed somewhere on the wheelchair without drilling holes.  I like to use clamp and vice bases for this application. The wheelchair … Read more

I was able to get a look inside a Mercedes-Benz GLK350 the other day.  I instantly snap into MountGuys Labs mode to figure out what mounts will work. A photo of the interior of a Mercedes-Benz GLK350 accompanies this article.  It’s a fairly compact interior and finding good mounting locations was unexpectedly difficult.  So let’s see what’s going to work.

Airplane Passenger Seat Mounts for iPads and Tablets

So I’m on my way to Florida on a United Airlines flight when panic sets in.  The photo that accompanies this article is best case with DirecTV.  But on this flight, there’s no DirecTV or WiFi.  Out of the thousands of planes that United Airlines has in their fleet, I got stuck on the one without any entertainment installed.  I can’t possibly talk to my wife this long and my iPhone doesn’t have any games or movies installed.  This is going to be the most boring three hours of my life.  This is how I discovered the necessity for good airplane … Read more

Seems like everyone with anything good to say is out on one of the social media live streaming platforms.  Facebook Live, Busker and Periscope (owned by Twitter) have emerged as three of the top platforms for live streaming.  For those unfamiliar with this form of social media, it’s all done using an app on a smartphone or tablet. The use of a good phone or tablet mount makes for a better broadcast.  Why?  Ever do Facetime while the other person is holding their phone or tablet?  It feels like a fishing trip that went wrong.  The shaking on the other … Read more
