This shows how to attached the IDWedgeBT ID Scanner to an iPad for use at an event. We purchased a ruggedized case for the iPad and a handstrap case to create this set up. It protects the iPad, supports the IDWedgeBT card scanner and provides a hand strap, shoulder/neck lanyard and thigh strap for attaching the iPad to various things like a person or to a head rest on a card seat.
The case is a Griffin Survivor Military Duty Case with Stand for iPad 2 & iPad 3, Black. Below is a link to it on Amazon. It was $34 delivered with Amazon prime and we like it better than the Otterbox for iPad (plus it is less expensive). It comes with a clear screen so there is no need to apply a protective film to the iPad screen (as is the case with Otterbox case. Plus the Otterbox case we have has a loose over cover which seems to slide all over the place. The Griffin Survivor case feels far more secure.
Below are some pictures of the back side of the case setup. OtterBox makes a hand strap kit called the Utility Series Latch for iPad/iPad 2. There are connection points on all four corners for connecting a neck strap that comes with the Otterbox Latch. The Latch kits has four straps which attach to each corner of the iPad case. The kit also includes a thigh strap (elastic velcro strap) that could be wrapped around a thigh (or a post) to attached the entire rig in at mobile event. This part was $28 from Amazon delivered.
There apparently are newer versions of this handstrap kit but we’ve not tested them with the straight bracket.
The only other part of this rig is the straight stainless steel bracket that attaches to the bottom of the IDWedgeBT. We push this bracket below the stand attachment on the side of the Griffin case. It can be installed on either side of the case. Click on the pictures above to get a better view.
