An Extra Set of Hands With SnakeClamp


Have you ever needed an extra set of hands?  If you are a small business owner then I’m sure there have been times when you needed one, or two, or a hundred extra hands.  Well, I am looking at a product today that may be just what you’re looking for.  I was contacted by a company named SnakeClamp Products and they make products which lend a helping hand.  The folks over at SnakeClamp Products asked me to review one of their products and tell my readers my opinion on it.  I chose to review their iPad & Tablet SnakeClamp.  I’ll get to the review in a minute but here is a brief list of their other products.

  • Camera SnakeClamp – Attach cameras, video cameras, and some webcams
  • eReader SnakeClamp – Attach various sized eReaders
  • iPad & Tablet SnakeClamp – Attach several different sized iPads and tablets
  • Heavy Duty iPad & Tablet SnakeClamp – Suitable for commercial and industrial use

  • Microphone SnakeClamp – Attach a microphone to various objects
  • SmartPhone SnakeClamp – Generic clamp work with various smartphones
  • Workholding SnakeClamp – Two different clamps to give you a helping hand

iPad & Tablet SnakeClamp

I always seem to have a need to prop up my iPad so I thought this would be the perfect option to review.  I use the iPad in personal and business settings.  Whenever I try a new recipe I use the iPad to display the recipe and at the office I use the iPad to add another screen so I can multi-task.  It’s very helpful to have my email up on my iPad while I have my other work up on my desktop monitors.

The Choices

When you choose your SnakeClamp product you have three choices to make:

  1. The attachment clamp
  2. The flexible or rigid arm
  3. The mounting base

I have an iPad 2 so I chose the iPad 2/3/4 Mount, the 18″ flexible goose neck arm, and the round base.

Now, SnakeClamp has several other options but I’ll be focusing on the ones above for this review.  The first thing I noticed when I received the package was the weight.  This isn’t a lightweight product.  I unpacked everything and saw that SnakeClamp Products included everything I needed to assembly my SnakeClamp.

I’m not always the handiest person in the world be even I was able to figure this out and have it assembled in around 2 minutes.  One point to be careful of, the magnet included to add weight to the base is very powerful.  When adding it to the base I made the mistake of letting my finger get between the two…not smart.  In retrospect I should have placed the magnet on the table and placed the base on top of it….lesson learned.

I love the flexible arm.  I was able to bend it to any angle I wanted so the iPad was exactly where I needed it.  Also, the base is very sturdy so you don’t have to worry about your full sized tablet tipping it over.

My first test for the iPad & Tablet SnakeClamp was holding my iPad as I cooked a new recipe.  This was awesome and pretty soon my wife realized that she could get used to having the iPad in the kitchen.  I had my recipe and my wife’s dessert recipe pulled up and we were able to leave the iPad on the SnakeClamp and simple toggle back and forth between recipes.

Next I took it to the office.  I pulled up my work email and placed the iPad on the SnakeClamp and placed it on my desk.  The nice this is that I was able to place the base out of the way and bend the flexible arm to put the iPad exactly where I needed it.  This setup made me feel like I had three monitors on my desk instead of two with an iPad that I had to pick up to check my email.

So, I have to say that I highly recommend SnakeClamp Products.  If the quality of this one is indicative of their other products then I would feel comfortable purchasing any of them.  There are many other product options to see so check out there website at for all of the details.
