Heckler Design's WindFall iPad Stand Review

Here at blueantstudio, we are very aware of Dean Heckler's company: Heckler Design.
They create one of the most amazing i-accesories and desks that you can imagine. The metal bending construction, the machine aluminum pieces and bullet proof desks will really set them apart of the competition always trying to play catch up with Dean's creations...

New from the factory is the WindFall. A retail oriented, iPad stand that is designed to be used as a kick ass point of sale.

While WindFall is sturdy, stable and super solidly built; it manages to stay very slim and unobtrusive. All you need is an iPad, a wireless network and just place your cash drawer/receipt printer out of sight for an awesome and clutter free point of sale experience.

The pivot and slide design elements makes pretty easy to rotate the iPad to get customer's signatures, all this while keeping the iPad securely bolted to the countertop. The WindFall also comes with a Kensington Security Slot, that way, you don't have to drill holes into your countertop to keep your iPad secured.

To secure the iPad inside the WindFall, you just unscrew 4 tamper resistant screws, slide your iPad and you are done. All the hardware is included in the package and instructions to assembly are provided via a website... Great to keep the carbon footprint down and generating less waste.
The WindFall is also compatible with MagTek iDynamo Card Reader and Square Card Reader and even the design prevents the Square to spin out of control while swiping the card.

All controls on the iPad remain reachable and all sensors are full accessible and un-blocked.

Heckler Design, once again, floor us with innovative solutions incorporating our favorite devices. They think ahead of the pack and outside the box. Elegant devices with beautiful craftsmanship and made in the USA.
