In short, the Cooper Strut tablet stand is probably the easiest, most inexpensive way to upgrade a simple smartphone or tablet case. This plastic add-on accessory is extremely easy-to-use and provides excellent hands-free stability for essentially all types of hand-held electronic devices.

The Cooper Strut is a best case scenario for the smartphone or tablet user in need of a quick fix to instantly turn a conventional case into one which displays for browsing and viewing. It is the very picture of a handy little accessory. This universal tablet stand is ready for immediate use straight out of the box. And for the most part, that use is completely intuitive. This collapsible stand features a pull-down strut that locks into one of two different notches on the support leg. But the design really only gives the user one distinct viewing angle of around 55° - 60°. There is also a collapsible kickstand within the strut. This part can extend the viewing display up to approximately 65° (though still not much noticeable difference). Or, the feature can offer small devices (8” or less) an adequate 20° angle support for typing. Placement of the smartphone/mini-tab/tablet is obvious and requires no clipping, fastening or the like. And the mantle design allows the device to be displayed in either landscape or portrait format. Despite its low price, the Cooper Strut is no throwaway item, either. It’s made of tough lightweight plastic that definitely feels built to last. The design is available in 9 different colors: black, white, green, purple, yellow, blue, orange, red or pink.

            Again, the Cooper Strut is a single-purpose item for smartphone and/or tablet users. It’s a best case scenario for those with several devices, those who do a lot of video watching and those who simply want an inexpensive add-on that provides some extra functionality.
