HoverBar Duo FAQs

What is the difference between HoverBar Duo Gen 1 and the new Gen 2?
Both models share the same adjustable arm and iPad clip. The Gen 2 is available in a beautiful Matte White finish and features a new quick release tab that makes it very quick & easy to switch between the HoverBar desktop base and shelf clamp. This makes it a truly dual-use iPad stand. Use it on your desk with the weighted base all day. Then snap it into the shelf clamp - already attached in the kitchen - to follow a recipe for dinner. The Gen 1 also has both stand options, but you typically decide which option you want initially, then install the desired base or clamp with an included Hex tool. It also is costs $20 less. So, if you really just want one style of stand, Gen 1 is a great choice and will save you some cash.

If you know you have a larger bulkier iPad case on a larger iPad Pro model - we encourage you to check the dimensions above before you order.

Yes, HoverBar Duo doesn't block charging ports so you can charge while your iPad is sitting in HoverBar.

Yes, HoverBar Duo fits mobile phones with a minimum height of 5 inches.
Does HoverBar hold other devices like Nintendo Switch and other tablets?
Yes, HoverBar Duo can fit any device with a minimum height of 5inches and a maximum height of 8.68 inches. We love it with Nintendo Switch!

    Love ❤️ My Gen2 and Gen1 HoverBar Duo

    I first purchased the Gen-1 HB Duo and loved it. I’ve never used the clamp just based on the inconvenience of swapping out the hardware. I use it every day to set my iPad as a second monitor or to use it as a stand alone second computer with keyboard at my sit/stand desk. Working from home, it’s been amazing to have for my small desk. I can set up the iPad as my camera as needed and use my computer as work space when zooming. When I saw the improvements for the Gen2 and its ability to quickly shift from desk-stand to clamp, I couldn’t wait to buy it. My Seville, wheeling, sit-stand desk is portable and small and has limited surface space to use the MacBook and gen1 with the stand. As soon as the gen2 arrived, I mounted the clamp to the side of the desk to use for my iPhone! Love love love it. Because I can wheel the desk to different rooms or outside, the clamp keeps things secure and maximizes space-utilization. Just be careful and check your hex and screw settings on both stand and clamp regularly, or tilt the device into a safe position to avoid disaster when moving around. I love that on weekends my desk can double as a bedside or breakfast table and use my devices on the gen2 swivel or gen1 stand to check email while lounging in bed and I don’t have to use my hands to hold the phone or iPad which sounds lame but it’s so nice to swipe, tilt and swivel. I can’t recommend this product enough! I even told my work team and the boss ordered one for herself and purchased…

    Great stand - works super well right in the middle of my workstation

    This is a quality product as you would expect from 12South. Solid, stable, well-thought out, working tolerances tight and smooth. Perfect for my iPad 11" M1.

    Great add for my iPad Pro

    Built like a tank and super sturdy. I like the idea of having it on the stand to move it around. I put away the extra attachment to hook it up on a cabinet or desk for future use if needed.

    Seems nice, but unit was banged up.

    This appears to be a good product, but my unit was all scratched up and a bit dusty. The cardboard tray looked like it had been been mangled a bit, and the base plate and joint cover were noticeably scratched. This doesn’t affect the functionality, which is simple and effective. I did receive a sealed box.
