FAQ

Will the attachments wear down due to frequent attaching, detaching, sliding etc?

Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) with its excellent abrasion resistance and tear strength, has been chosen specifically to cope with these regular stresses. Please refer to 'Tips and Tricks' section to learn more about recommended attaching and detaching methods which will prolong service life.

Are there other ring sizes?

The current ring size (23mm internal clear diameter) is deemed the optimum size to cater for majority of the people, as a bigger ring is usable by people with smaller fingers, but not the other way round.

Through this Kickstarter campaign, I hope to gather feedback from backers to determine whether there is a reasonable demand for other ring sizes, be it smaller or bigger. With sufficient demand, the intention is to use part of the funds to produce new moulds for other ring sizes.

When they are available, Kickstarter backers will benefit from purchasing them at a preferential rate.

Does the ring attachment work with any type of air-con vent?

The ring attachment will adapt to the majority of the air-con vents with its versatile design. You have the option to use the slot within the ring to grip onto the vent bars. Alternatively, you can rely on the slight compressibility of the ring to fit snugly into the gap between the vent bars. For other less than ideal vents, it is best to use the tripod adapter (included in the package) in conjunction with a window suction mount (to be sourced separately).

In portrait mode, will the body slide off the ring attachment and tripod adapter?

The design utilises frictional force to maintain the body in position whilst in portrait mode. When using the ring attachment, use both rings to generate the necessary frictional force. For total security, especially when used in a vibrating in-car environment, apply a thin layer of Blu-Tack to the inside face of the ring base/ tripod adapter.

Will the air-conditioning (heating and cooling) affect the product?

All thermoplastics have the characteristics of softening under heat and hardening under cold temperature, but the temperature range from the air-conditioning is not sufficiently extreme to affect the performance of the product.

We would however advise that the product is kept away from direct sunlight when not in use, eg glovebox, armrest compartment etc, to prolong its service life.

Which tablets are compatible with KlipAL?

KlipAL will fit tablets with a width between 124mm and 165mm. As a guide, KlipAL is compatible with 7.9" to 9.0" tablets, which include Hudl 2, iPad Mini series, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.0 series and Nexus 9.
