My favorite case for an iPad when using it as a communication device is the Otterbox Defender (click here for example). It’s durable, can be cleaned, and has a nice little kickstand so it can be placed up right on a table in front of the user. But it doesn’t have a strap.
We can fix that though.
It’s pretty easy to add a strap to one of these cases.
First, you’ll need the following items:
1. Phillips head screw driver OR 8mm socket wrench set OR both (I prefer a socket wrench).
2. Drill and 7/64 drill bit (bit number 35)
4. D-ring (quantity of 2)
7. Pencil or Marker
Once you have the above items, the rest is fairly easy.
Mark the location of wear you will need to drill holes.
Carefully drill two one hole in each pre-marked spot.
Put one hex nut THEN one D-ring in the hole so that all parts on what is the outside (front face) of the case.
Add another hex nut to the inside of the case. Tighten using your 8mm socket wrench (or screw driver).
Repeat Steps 3-4 in second hole.
And that’s it. Check below for a quick video on how to do this. Thanks and spread the word!!! #accessforall
