To install your iPad in the case, simply start with one half of the iPad, snap it into place then push the other half into the case until it clicks into place. Once installed, the iPad feels very secure in the case and you won't have to worry about it falling out accidentally.
With the iPad in the case, the front lid closes fully and snaps into place with two prongs on each corner. There are two non-slip bumpers on the front and four on the rear. The stainless steel hinge pin is positioned on the left of the case and is covered with a black rubberized material. LapWorks points out that when the top panel is laid flat against the back panel, this non-slip hinge serves as a good method to hold the iPad for single-hand use.
The last set of photos shows the case with the top lid flipped around and lying flat against the back lid.
With the case in place, all of the buttons and ports are accessible on the top, bottom and side of the iPad.
Here we see the top panel has been rotated and can be used as a stand to support the iPad in both landscape and portrait modes. Silicon feet on the edge of the top panel and the side of the bottom panel prevent the case from sliding out when in use in landscape mode.
Let's move ahead and see how well the case works on a daily basis.
