The Steelie HobKnob Kit for Tablets (and e-readers) gives you a better way to hold and display your device using the ingenious Steelie magnetic mounting technology. With the two part system, the HobKnob can quickly be attached or detached in a snap to create an ergonomic handle or a stand for your device.

Product Information

With its ingenious magnetic design, the Steelie HobKnob Kit is a fun, innovative way to create both a handle and mini stand for your tablet, e-reader, or other device. Simply peel and attach the Steelie Magnetic Tablet Socket to the center of the back of your tablet or its rigid case. The Steelie Magnetic Tablet Socket Component is a strong, machined aluminum base containing a powerful, circular magnet ringed and centered with flexible silicon and backed with 3M®'s VHB™ foam adhesive tape. The Steelie HobKob Handle Component - a specially engineered aluminum knob topped with a grippy rubber ball that fits securely around the socket, attaches to it magnetically, and makes a perfect handle so you can easily share your tablet, show videos, and give presentations without obscuring the screen or fumbling in the process. And, when it's propped on any flat, smooth surface, the HobKnob makes a useful angled stand, in either landscape or portrait, for typing, viewing, reading, or video chatting. As easy to detach as it is to snap on, the HobKnob fits easily in a pocket, and is as mobile as you are.

As an added plus, with the Tablet Socket attached to the back of your device, it will magnetically connect to other convenient metal surfaces - refrigerator doors, steel shelving, stove hoods, filing cabinets, lockers, and toolboxes -so you can dock it securely and keep it accessible and viewable wherever you go.

The Steelie Magnetic Tablet Socket contains a strong magnet. These magnets will NOT damage your tablet or phone. However, do not place near magnetically sensitive objects such as credit cards, pacemakers, or computer hard drives. Nite Ize assumes no liability for damage to such objects.

I purchased another mount for my tablet and 2 steelie ball mounts to hold my tablet securely to the dash of my semi truck. Works beautifully!

    5 (10+ stars!) for customer service and product improvement. I have multiples of these. Issues due to iPad upgrades resolved super fast by customer support. Newer product (Hobnob) smaller shaft diameter is a real comfort plus for smaller hands. Everywhere I go I just keep saying Steelie.com when asked "where did you get that?"

        I bought the HobKnob to help keep a hold of my nook while on the subway. It gives me a great grip on the knob with one hand leaving my other hand free when I have to stand. Although I bought this more for reading on the subway, the "tilted stand" feature is also great and holds the nook at a comfortable angle for reading in coffee shops or on planes. I have also downloaded a few recipes to the nook (trying to go paperless!) and just stuck the whole thing to my fridge using the mounting puck that stays on the nook. I only have 2 complaints: The first is that it made the nook a little bulkier, but its a small complaint compared to the added functionality. The second is that the rubber-ball is getting a little worn. I hope it is replaceable although I think I have about a year before this becomes a real problem.
