Attach HoverBar to your bed for hands-free late night reading or video watching. A HoverBar, Bluetooth keyboard and a table creates an instant compact workstation almost anywhere.

    Love this product it works great! Easy to use and set up, simple and well designed. It didn't sag or have issues like other review Love this product it works great! Easy to use and set up, simple and well designed. It didn't sag or have issues like other reviews I had read. I recommend this product for any designer needing a dual screen set up. It is nice to have it higher up and angled they way I like it.

    The HoverBar does not hold up my iPad 3, but it rather falls over and does not hold it's position as viewed in the pictures here not on the Apple website.

    DO NOT BUY, this is looking like the company purchased a cheap lower quality goosenecks to make more money, it is the gooseneck that does not hold up the IPad.

    I expect a full refund and more for my wasted time!

    I am not happy with this product and it should NOT be offered on the Apple website!

  • Disappointed with Compatibility.

    This product is not compatible with the 21.5 inch iMac and any iPads heavier or equally as heavy than the iPad with Retina Display This product is not compatible with the 21.5 inch iMac and any iPads heavier or equally as heavy than the iPad with Retina Display. I have a 21.5 inch iMac and an iPad with Retina display, which TwelveSouth claims these products to be be compatible with the HoverBar, however, when the HoverBar is properly attached to the lowest possible part of the iMac stand, the iMac is weighed down so much by the iPad that it tilts toward the iPad, and the iPad sags down unless in a few particular positions. I was very excited for this product, but I am extremely disappointed. Do not purchase this if you have the same specs as I. I presume this would work well with a 27 inch iMac and an iPad Mini/iPad Air

    I have been holding back on my comments until I was completely sure of what I was saying, but have now owned the Hoverbar for over I have been holding back on my comments until I was completely sure of what I was saying, but have now owned the Hoverbar for over 6months and I have to say, what an awesome little product! It fits perfectly on my iMac 27", have had no issues with the mount sagging or not holding up my iPad 2 (Not air, so the heavy one!). I even have a little clip lamp hanging off the bar with no effect felt by the ipad or mac. It holds the iPad perfectly beside my computer and allows me to play movies or watch TV without having to run them onto my main screen. Could not recommend this product more. I have a number of Twelve South products and find them, along with the HoverBar to be well built, simple in design yet extremely useful.

    I purchased this last week and within one hour of using it, it broke. The metal square on the back of the iPad holders are very w I purchased this last week and within one hour of using it, it broke. The metal square on the back of the iPad holders are very weak and do not stand up to the pressure of rotating the iPad 360 degrees while it is mounted to the gooseneck. I have tried the product with two out of the three iPad clips provided and both squares on the rear of the holders become very loose almost instantly as the plastic surrounding the squares gets chewed up, this results in the iPad rotating freely and not staying in the desired orientation. Not what you'd expect for the high price.

Now, I use it every day and love it. Product quality could be a little better.
