Finding the best accessories to pair with your tablet can sometimes be a challenge. As workforces become more mobile the need to have access to a keyboard becomes more prominent. So we developed a mount that can be added to any of our mounts that will hold a keyboard. The Pole Mount can be used with a MagConnect Tablet Module or Unite Tray making it easy to add it to any existing or new mount setup.

The MagConnect Universal Tablet Module paired with a MagConnect Pole Mount is a great option. The module attaches to the back of a keyboard via an industrial grade 3M VHB adhesive. This industrial grade adhesive is semi-permanent and can be removed but requires a solvent to do so. This is a great solution for when a keyboard needs to be quickly mounted and dismounted while on the go.

The other keyboard mount option is the Unite Pole Mount; which can hold a keyboard between 5.125” – 7.625” in width and 7.5” – 12” in length. This mount has adjustable brackets that slide in and out of the tray to accommodate tablets and various other accessories like a keyboard. This is the ideal solution for shared workstations that utilize multiple types of keyboards.

After you’ve decided which mounting option to go with follow the below step-by-step instructions on how to setup a keyboard mount utilizing one of our MagConnect or Unite Mounts. If you're still on the fence about which mount and case combo to settle on this blog post will help you examine the options to help you land on the best solution to fit your needs and environment. 

Step 1: Select the correct insert

Determine which insert best fits your mount arm diameter. Then slide the insert around the mount arm where you wish to mount your keyboard.

Step 2: Attach the pole mount bracket

Place the pole mount base top and bottom around the insert and tighten using the included screws and allen wrench. Tighten enough to prevent the base from sliding up and down on the arm.
