    Default [GIVEAWAY] Crazy Cradle iPad / Tablet Holder


    So uh - this thing actually is crazy like it's name states. It purports to be a "device holder with limitless positions sure to adapt to any situation" and it sure does do just that. Crazy Cradle is made by Adroitly, LLC (the name means skilled or clever) - a new US company which by the looks of it is essentially Brett Andres, their CEO/owner/idea man.

    Birthed from an idea we're paying too much for our device stands which we have to re-purchase with every new device we buy, the Crazy Cradle is a universal device holder unlike any you've seen before. There may be a reason you haven't seen a case like this yet, ha - although after a few uses I got more used to it.



    Essentially, the Crazy Cradle is 4 long bendy soft-covered legs capped in vinyl end pieces, and wrapped tightly with strong nylon rope in the middle. The rope in the middle is secured so you can't move or unravel it - good quality there. The 4 arms (legs?) bend out from either side to create this thing's usefulness - you can bend them around your device on one side, and pretty much anything on the other side.

    The soft covering on the arms is nice - it feels like the same material as one of those stress balls, and won't muck up your iPad (or NOOK, or Kindle, or whatever tablet flavor you roll with) at all. The vinyl-tipped caps give a good enough grip not to slide around if you use this as a stand.



    It's an odd configuration, although it works pretty well once you get the hang of it. Figuring out the preferred method of hooking the ends around the iPad like the Crazy Cradle folk show in the pictures on their product and website took a frustrating 5-10 minutes. Holding the iPad in my lap while staring at the picture on the tube it comes in, and bending the thing all which ways, I eventually got the hang of it. After using it for an afternoon I was able to easily notch the iPad into the Crazy Cradle - I guess you'll just need to plan for a learning curve.

    Once the iPad was actually snug IN the cradle, despite the comical appearance of the holder, I found it pretty versatile. You can stand the other 4 arms up to make it an actual stand on a flat surface (at ANY angle, and any height between it's tallest down to the surface), or you can wrap the non-iPad side around all sorts of things. I tried it on a lounge chair on the deck, a bird cage hanging from the ceiling, and even my arm - all with snug, solid fits. I was a bit nervous at first it may fall - the thing just looks so odd - but it holds snug and is easy to tap/type/swipe on. The pics on their iWeb-standard-needs-a-graphic-designer-to-help-a-bit website show them wrapping it around a grocery cart, headrest in a car, and some guy's leg. It definitely destroys any holder I've seen when judged purely on compatibility and versatility.



    It's a peculiar product, which works exactly as described. I was sure when I first looked at the product and their website I would find it absolutely un-useful and shabby, but the build quality on this is excellent - well put together, held up to use great. It's large and will definitely start some conversations - but after I started using it I realized the Crazy Cradle can fit pretty much anywhere you need - where other holders just can't compare. If you've got the need for one of these, at $25 plus shipping it's not a bad cost - especially considering you'll be able to use it on any tablet, even once you've upgraded.

    It comes in black or blue, and can be ordered directly from their website at TheCrazyCradle.com. Brett was cool and is giving away a Crazy Cradle to a reader as well - so comment below and use the widget to grab some extra points, and we'll pick a winner Wednesday!

    I can finally have a stand to work with my iPad case that has no stand. Very ingenious.
