Positioning: Method of displaying your iPad

Most users will immediately get in the habit of using this product like a laptop, but it is actually best when resting the iPad on the rubberized surface area at the top portion of the base keyboard.

For a secure snug setup, open up the keyboard, adjust the sliding mechanism to desire length, bring down the iPad going pass the first top row of keys. Then push both bottom corners of the iPad towards the rubberized area until firmly planted.

Another position is to use the arm stand separately away from the keyboard. Reverse the arm hinge will allow more viewing angles, shown in the picture below.

To reach this position, open up the keyboard like usual but flip the iPad so the screen faces away. Then, slide the arm stand completely out of the keyboard. Now the only step left is to rotate the stand so the screen is facing the user. Voila!
