The stands I had bought before seeing this one always drifted down from the weight of my iPad and case. When I saw this one advertised as “It is a great tablet stand for musicians. It is also perfect for stage performers and studio setups”, I thought I would try it because that is exactly what I use mine for. I can’t say how pleased I am.. easy to place the iPad in.. no drifting down.. attaches right on my mic stand.. PERFECT !!!
