Dual Display

See two screens at once, with Mountie. This adjustable side mount clip attaches your tablet or phone to a laptop screen, letting you see both at once. While you’re typing a document or reading, you can also keep an eye on text messages or social media. Or use it for video chatting. Or use it with apps that let you link two screens together, increasing your visual playing field. Mountie’s grips are adjustable to fit most phones and tablets, and work with many cases, too. Display vertically or horizontally, or to the left or right—whatever works for you. Now you can see what you want without moving or minimizing windows. Founder Peter Skinner wanted to create a dual screen experience that didn’t sacrifice viewing quality. Streaming movies, in particular, was bumpy with multiple open windows on his laptop. His simple but smart solution lets you create a multi-screen workspace in a snap.

    Hi Grommet Community! If you're a multi-tasker, you'll love the Mountie. Clip your phone or tablet right to your computer screen for easy access and viewing. Check it out and let us know what you think!

    Gavin, I REALLY want one of these, but live outside the US (currently in UK). Can you PLEASE let me know how I can Oder direct without setting up a "ghost" US address as TheGrommet suggests? Many thanks.

    Can the Mountie side mount clip be used to attach an iPad to a standard flatscreen monitor?

  • Dave

    2/26/2016 10:53 AM

    @Marc Probably not. Mountie will clip to anything up to 9mm thick (and relatively flat). In general, the monitors we've seen people try have been too thick.

    Wow. What a fantastic concept. Brill! as my UK friends used to say. I want two of them in my hands immediately, if not sooner! But I have to ask: Although your narrative doesn't use the word "apple" every single image, including the one of your packaging show nothing but apple. There is the ubiquitous assumption that everyone everywhere has nothing but apple. Obviously, I'm not in that subset, so here's my question. Can I assume that the spring-loaded clips accommodate a modern laptop by, say Lenovo, and a non-apple phone, say Samsung Note 4 with a protective case a few mm thicker than the device?

  • Dave
    Dave – Special Guest
    2/26/2016 12:04 PM

    @David Thanks! I'm glad you like it. Yes, although almost all of our photos reference Apple products, Mountie is not Apple exclusive. Mountie will hold any device up to 9mm thick. I do know that the Note 4 should fit without the case, though we haven't had a chance to try with a case yet. If your Lenovo laptop screen is thinner then your phone, you should be all set!

  • David
    David
    2/26/2016 12:09 PM

    @Gavin Thanks for your quick response. Oh, that's too bad. The device plus case is 10.5mm, so I guess we're not on.

    I'm disappointed that both my flat-screen monitor at work, and my iPhone 6S Plus with a Mophie battery case on it, are too big to fit in this device.

    Maybe there can be a second Mountie model created to allow for items that are a bit thicker. Not everyone goes case-free with their (expensive, lol) phone, and not everyone is attaching a smartphone to a relatively thin laptop/tablet screen.

    Bonus: if the Mountie can be designed so that the smaller screen's angle can be adjusted, rather than having it be exactly parallel to the bigger screen 100% of the time.

  • Dave

    @Donna Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the product, I really appreciate hearing from you. I agree, it would be awesome to have Mountie accommodate as many screen and case sizes as possible. We're not sure what this would look like yet, although we continue to explore the possibility.

    When we originally designed Mountie, our first concepts held a mobile device exactly parallel to a laptop screen. We quickly learned that this was not ideal and went to work finding out what would be the best angle to set device used as a second screen. Since the angle would not be adjustable on this version, getting an angle that would fit with most users became a primary focus of the design. After some trial and error, we landed on what we felt was the most ideal inward angle for most users. That being said, I agree, adjusted angles would be an awesome feature.

  • David

    2/26/2016 1:42 PM

    @Gavin If the phone clamp width is increased to accept 11mm and the angle Donna is asking about can be adjusted, I'll be your next customer. I for one, would not mind it at all if I needed to tighten a wing-nut or screw once the angle was determined. The universality of this feature will be a tough design criterion unless you depend on the user to assist with the final adjustment (imho).
