        As several other reviews said, this device was not sized correctly to fit my tablet, a Lenovo IdeaTab A8-50 8-Inch. The tablet is 5.25 inches wide, but the MINIMUM size of the tabmount (when it is not expanded at all) is 5.5 inches. The tablet is much too tall (8.5") to use the tabmount the other way.

        So it appears that many Android 7" or 8" tablet with a "wide-screen" display will be too narrow to be held by the tabmount. It depends on the size of the borders on your tablet, but as I say, it must be at least 5.5" in one dimension in order to be held. I suppose that some 7" tablets might fit the other way, if they are less than about 8" tall, but that would result in a VERY tight grip on the tabmount.

        I am keeping the tabmount because I cut a strip from a mousepad and if I put that at the bottom of the tabmount, it makes the tablet wide enough to be held. At first I used 2 strips in order to have it held tighter, but upon experimentation have found that even one is enough, the tabmount holds so well once it is expanded even slightly.

        So, I like it and am pleased with it.

        I have the ipad mini retina and that is what I bought this adaptor for. It will not hold the mini in a horizontal position unless you have a larger cover/case on it. Also, You must have a tripod that can rotate to a vertical angle or you will not be able to easily use this. Apart from those two issues it is a seemingly good design. Unfortunatly, those two issues affect me.

          I wanted this to hold my Nexus 7 tablet onto my DSLR rig as an outboard monitor. It seems to do the job OK. It can be hard to hold the tablet horizontally because gravity wants to loosen it, but I think I have it working for the most part.

            We have an app (Knovio) that allows you to record presentations and it has been very awkward to hold the iPad at the correct level to record. This device attaches to any standard tripod and holds the iPad securely at the proper recording angle. Love it!!!

            Comments about iStabilizer tabMount:

            I got this to mount a Nexus 7 v2 in landscape mode, thinking it would grasp it across the short axis. Bad news is that it only holds it across the long axis and just barely opens wide enough to fit it; good news is that it does hold it firmly and without any chance of falling out. I am mounting to a DSLR's cold shoe, using asstd adapter hardware. Because it extends the mount's grabbing arms to within a 1/4" of maximum extension, the spring is stretched very tight. The mount point is therefore off-center by 1.5" in landscape. The device seems constructed pretty well out of sturdy plastic with strengthening ribs and a metal 1/4-20 threaded insert. It doesn't interfere with accessing the buttons or using the camera, though headphone use would need you to offset it a little. But the rubber grippers contacting the Nexus 7 seem very secure; I doubt that it would release it even with great vibration.Fits from 5-3/4" to 7-7/8" devices.

                  We used a photo booth app on an iPad to create a DIY photo booth at my daughter's sweet 16 birthday party. The tabMount easily attached to my tripod and was very secure during the 3 hour party with teens using it to take photos and post the photo strips to their social media accounts.

                        This so-called "universal" mount is not so. It is too wide to fit in the portrait orientation and too short to fit in the landscape mode.
                        Construction looks good--I only wish that it worked for my tablet.

                                        At a great price I have been able to get great footage of athletic events and training without holding my iPad mini. With my case on the mount only fits in the landscape position, which is not a problem since I like videoing this way. The iPad fits securely to the mount as does the mount to the tripod. I made a great buy and have already gotten multiple comments on it!

                                          The tabMount by iStabilizer is a really inexpensive (and in my opinion, best option) solution to securely mounting your iPad or tablet to any of your pre-existing grip w/ 1/4" thread (ball head, articulating arm, super clamp, etc.). A very durable, quality product that is made to last.I permanently have it attached to an articulating arm which is then attached to a small tabletop tripod for when I'm sitting at my couch. I even use it with a Manfrotto Pixi at my workstation for when I want it next to my computer.

                                                I use this for my nexus 7. It has a 1/4" hole on the back, I attach a noga arm and nano clamp. I clamp it to my bed and watch netflix while laying down. I attach it to my car visor. I clamp it to my tripod and monitor video from my dslr.

                                                It's easy to use and seems durable so far.

                                                It has to be slid up or down for headphones to fit. Not perfect, but still works well.
