Let's be honest - mistakes happen. When you have a full-fledged karaoke setup, you'll attract crowds of karaoke lovers looking for a good time every night of the week. As a restaurant or bar owner, you should always prepare for the worst and take extra precautions to ensure the technology you invest in is safe and secure. That's why securing your iPad is so important.

If you have an iPad your customers use to select songs or browse a catalog of songs, you never know what will happen. Someone could drop it, lose it, or misplace it. With a secure iPad stand or mount, you can get the peace of mind to invest in high-end iPads and get your crowd ready for a good time.

We're here to walk you through why you need a wall mount iPad and some of the best options on the market. Let's dive in:

Why You Need to Secure Your iPad

Securing your iPad minimizes problems and keeps your tech safe from damage. It's a great way to get the reassurance you need so you can focus on your business's daily operations while your customers have a good time.

Here are a few benefits:

A space saver

Investing in an iPad wall mount over a floor stand can be a great space saver. This can be an option for restaurants and bars with small karaoke rooms or a relatively small stage or singing space.

Peace of mind

As we said, you never know what will or won't happen. If you don't have an iPad wall mount or stand, you're at risk for damages and accidents. You never know when an iPad might accidentally fall off a table, get dropped on the floor, or be taken home in someone's purse. Adding wall mount iPads to your space will give you the peace of mind to ensure everything is safe and secure.

Protect your devices

A wall mount iPad protects your iPad from breaking. You don't need to worry about damaging your device. A wall mount iPad is especially useful if your bar or venue has multiple karaoke rooms and iPads you need to manage.

Wall Mount vs. Floor Stand: Which is the best for you?

When deciding whether a wall mount or a floor stand is right for you, there are a few things you'll want to consider. How big is your space? Do you move things around frequently? Do you want a solution that gives you peace of mind or flexibility?

With an iPad wall mount, there's nothing you need to worry about. Customers will walk up to the iPad and choose their song from the catalog and then join in on the fun. These options create a designated space for singers to walk up, queue a song and get back to having fun.

An iPad floor stand is similar but can still be risky.

While most iPad floor stands are sturdy and made with high-quality materials, they can still be knocked over by your customers, unless screwed into the floor. However, you can move an iPad floor stand to any part of your bar or venue without removing the hardware.

When it comes down to it: It's all about personal choice and the setup you have in your establishment. There are many different floor stands and wall mounts available at various price points.
