PRODUCT STORY
When your tablet's your top way to view your favorite flicks, propping your screen flat on your desk or in your lap can be a huge pain in the neck. Fortunately, this clever gadget gives your tablet the support it needs. Using the same mechanism that keeps your bike upright, this quirky swing-out stand suctions to the back of your screen so precarious leaning is no longer necessary to screen your films, photos, shows and more. Adjusting the angle and orientation of your screen is easy; simply flip the kickstand to its unlocked position, detach the suction cup, and move the leg to your desired vantage point. Made in China.

A kickstand can save your bike from toppling over, now your tablet. How would you use the iKickstand?

LOVE the idea. HATE that it is mass produced in China. I probably wouldn't buy it because of that.

Sorry, the made in China is too "oxymoronic" for an Uncommon Good - don't you think? Also, those iPads, tablets etc are very expensive I wouldn't "suction" anything to the back of mine. Still the need for a prop does exist but there's gotta be something better! Shoot, how about some a flexible "goose neck" style chop sticks with rubber tips? Or a leather bean bag?

I thought it was cool. Then I saw that it was made in China.

good idea, but wish it looked better (something to match the caliber of style of apple products)

The best thing about Uncommon Goods is everything seems original and not mass produced. DON'T change that

i would like this much more if it wasn't made in china. That seems a little against what I think uncommon goods is about. Though I still think this product is pretty awesome.

I don't like that is is made out of plastic and made in China. Also, I would not suction anything to the back of an expensive tablet without some type of protection between the suction cup and the tablet.

I'm sick of seeing items that are made in China, I prefer items made right here in the U.S.A

Looks like it could fail and cause tablet to fall and break.
