WHAT'S HOT If you appreciate whimsical combined with practical, this is the stand for you. Seldom would we term gadget stands "cute," yet these are, without sacrificing quality or durability. Squeeze the "legs" of either clip, and its "arms" open to surround your device and hold it within its "hands." The clips can be positioned anywhere along the sides of your device to give you the exact viewing or work angle you prefer. Crafted from aluminum and plastic, the arms have silicone to keep the clips from moving or scratching the screen. And the legs of the redesigned TwoHands II also have silicone for an improved anti-slip base. Compact and lightweight, these clips are perfect for use in the home, office or on the road and will pack easily into a case or purse.

Both clips are available in black, blue and pink, though you can also get SmallHands in white, red or green. TwoHands II can accommodate tablet-like devices (including the iPad mini) up to 10 1/2 inches long with a maximum thickness of 3/8 inch. SmallHands fits all generations of iPhone and iPod touch, as well as most smartphones, including larger ones such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4.

WHAT'S NOT SmallHands may not accommodate your phone if you use a thick case.
