This is a sturdy holder for an iPad or other tablet type computer. As designed, it has a maximum open dimension of about 11 inches, and a minimum of about 6-1/2 inches.
link to a similar stand (not the same one I have). It should be easy to design an alternative mounting adapter to fit other stand mounting hardware if needed. The sketch of the mounting adapter is shown below for reference dimensions.

Here’s a complete list of the assembly hardware needed:
- (1) 3/8″ 16 TPI tee nut
- (1) 1/4″ 20 TPI threaded rod, 7-3/4″ long
- (3) 1/4″ 20 TPI nuts
- (1) 1/4″ threaded insert
- (12) 3/4″ 4-40 screws
- (4) 1″ 4-40 screws
- (2) 5/8″ 4-40 screws
I picked up the 3/8″ and 1/4″ hardware at my local hardware store. Similar length 3mm screws could be substituted for the 4-40 hardware if necessary.
The 1/4″ threaded insert (I used the kind used for woodworking) was warmed with a heat gun and threaded into the plastic of the Receiver Bottom part using a hex driver in a drill and a short 1/4 bolt to temporarily hold the insert. Using a drill lets you slowly drive the insert in straight until it reaches the correct depth flush with the front of the part. Then six 3/4″ screws attach the Receiver Top to the Receiver Bottom. Four 1″ screws and two 5/8″ screws are used to attach the Mounting Adapter to the Receiver Bottom – the short screws are used in the center to not interfere with the clamping screw that will run down the middle of the Receiver part.
