Installation / Fit

To install an iPad in the Croc folio, unsnap the two straps at the top of the case and slide the iPad down into the jacket. Snap the straps back in place and you are ready to go.

Checking the fit of the case, we see that things are a bit off on the top of the folio. The holes for the power button, microphone and headphone jack are all slightly misaligned. This isn't a major issue with the power button and microphone, but the headphone jack is problematic in that you can't plug in the Apple headphones. There is a workaround that I found, however. Unsnap the strap over this area, plug the headphones into the jack through the hole then snap the strap back in place. It is inconvenient but it works.

I was thinking that maybe the leather would stretch over time but it's been a week already and the alignment is still the same with the iPad installed.

On the bottom of the case we see that the docking connector is fully accessible but once again, the alignment is off on the section covering the speakers. In testing this wasn't very noticeable but still worth mentioning.

Here we have a few final shots of the iPad installed in the croc case. As I mentioned earlier, the back kickstand can support the iPad in both landscape and portrait mode, although unfortunately there is no way to adjust the angle.

Let's move ahead and wrap things up with a conclusion.
