The New Phone Hack To Make Cooking Hassle + Germ-Free While In The Kitchen
As we’ve been quarantining and cooking up meals for our friends and family with a tablet showing a YouTube tutorial, have you ever wondered how to keep your device germ-free and stay in place while cooking up a storm?
That’s where The SkyClip+ comes in (www.theskyclip.com). Inspired by a diving trip to Barbados, the new, foldable product holds their smartphone, tablets, and so forth with a detachable cord to hook onto a wall or a surface. The sling can also be removed, making it the perfect item to hold your device while checking out the latest viral cooking video or tutorial.
Some highlighted features from the patented product include the: no-slip material, an easy-to-carry durable design and the flexible angled smart device mount that makes one's airline seat into a home theater and no need for holding a device for hours on end.
Enclosed below is a snapshot, which comes in three colorways - black, blue, and white - all of which may be purchased via Amazon in a one and two-pack that was named as an Amazon’s Choice item, seen here.
About The SkyClip
The SkyClip idea was born on a flight to Barbados for their annual scuba diving trip by partners Seth A. Fine and Mickey Furshman. They watched friends and travelers struggling for a simple way to use their phones and tablets to watch movies and use the Wi-Fi.
In late 2018, they launched their original SkyClip design and the response was overwhelming, but they didn’t stop there. They took in all your feedback and added every feature people asked for and are now ready to share the new SkyClip+ with you. They hope you continue to enjoy the convenience and multi-function use of the SkyClip brand. Follow @theskyclip on Facebook @theskyclip, Twitter @theskyclip, and Instagram @theskyclip.
