Protect and Connect the iPad 2 almost anywhere with the FLEX Kit by UZBL
Newport Coast, Ca, January 19, 2012 - With over 140,000 apps the iPad 2 has many uses. UZBL has developed a kit that allows you to accessorize the iPad 2 to make it more easily usable in any setting, they call it “FLEX for iPad 2”. The FLEX kit includes a snap-on handstrap to comfortably hold your iPad 2, a shoulder strap to carry it, and a snap-on rotating pivot with a 1/4” tripod thread that can be screwed onto any camera mount or accessory. The FLEX is compatible with a range of accessories and allows the iPad 2 user to stick, clamp, wrap, hang, or prop the iPad 2 almost anyplace imaginable. A nicely styled silicone skin adds the finishing touch and protects the iPad 2 if dropped.
The FLEX kit began as a protective cover with integrated ribs cells to provide shock absorbancy to protect the iPad in rugged settings such as schools. Feedback from parents and educators lead UZBL to integrate additional features and attachments to prevent the drops and to allow the iPad to be comfortable to hold and manuever. UZBL took this a step further, by adding a tripod thread to an included attachment. The tripod thread opens up the FLEX kit to a universal array of mounts and pods already being used with millions of cameras and video recorders.
The FLEX kit consists of five components:
1) The FLEX frame that clips onto the iPad 2 and features strap loops and a center ring for snap-in and quick release removal of accessories
2) A snap-in rotating pivot with a 1/4” tripod thread
3) A protective skin with “Air Cells” and ribs to cushion drops up to 6 ft
4) A velcro hand strap
5) An adjustable carrying strap with shoulder pad
The FLEX frame and pivot are made from a hard polycarbonate plastic. The frame fits snugly under the silicone cover and the pivot snaps securely in or out of the whole assembly. Two very useful camera accessories that work well with the FLEX kit are a flexible suction monopod for propping the iPad 2 at any angle and a large flexible tripod that can be wrapped or clung most anywhere. These pods are available separately. More info on the FLEX is available at www.iPadFLEX.com
For a very limited time the FLEX kit can be pre-ordered at Kickstarter at a big discount to the proposed retail price of $59. Several pledge tiers are offering additional incentives such as free accessories. The Kickstarter page is http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/uzbl/flex-versatility-kit-for-ipad-2
Founded in 201o and located in Newport Coast, Ca, UZBL created the first iPad case for kids. The company's products are now found in schools across the country protecting and cushioning iPads and iPad 2's. Seeking constant feedback from educators and parents, UZBL aims to have a range of products that make the iPad even more usable and versatile in school and home settings.

"I had two preteens and one of my buddies also take it for a test drive as well. We used the “Real Racing GTI” game from the app store. I also used my “Pacific Defense” game with it and I really think this case helped with the gaming experience. They all loved it. (I actually found a few other games now that I am going to have to buy to use with this."
