Installing a cabinet mount for an Ipad is what the Youtube video below demonstrates. How hard is it to attach the rotating swing out support? Actually, it requires very little skill and the tools needed are minimal. Once you decide where to hang the flip-up bracket, there is a template provided that makes drilling for the installation holes a breeze.

  • 5/16” Drill Bit
  • Phillips-head Screwdriver
  • Masking Tape
  • Hammer
  • Allen Wrench (supplied with kit)
  • Drop Cloth

This support system has a tilting arm that rotates. The computer screen can be turned to face in any direction while working in the kitchen.
