Make your own iPad wall mount

Stick it to the tiles

Loads of you have been using Sugru Mouldable Glue to make an iPad wall mount in your kitchens, so we thought we would give it a go ourselves. This is super handy for browsing through recipes or getting some light entertainment whilst cooking. Thanks to Sugru user Frederik, for first bringing this genius idea of creating a tablet wall mount with Sugru, to our attention.

Sugru is perfect for this project because it bonds to most materials and doesn't require any nails or screws - super useful if your kitchen is tiled. Its rubbery qualities make it really easy to place the tablet. PLUS Sugru is removable from non porous surfaces. So it's perfect for a temporary iPad wall holder, or if you're renting.

Wall mounted tablet holder made with Sugru grips


  • 2 single-use packs of Sugru
  • Cling film
  • Washing up liquid
  • Pencil

Step 1

Hand holding three rolled pieces of Sugru

Knead together your 2 single-use packs of Sugru. Take a small amount for the top clip (about 1/3 of a pack) and divide the remaining Sugru in two for the bottom shelves. We've done some fun colour mixing here. If you want to create a custom colour for your kitchen then check out the page: How to mix Sugru to make custom colours.

Step 2

Tablet covered in cling film used to mark positions of Sugru grips

Start by wrapping your iPad in cling film. Mark on the wall two points underneath the iPad about a quarter of the way in on both sides and one point at the top in the middle.

Step 3

Take the two larger pieces of Sugru and press into the bottom points. Shape them into shelves just thicker than the tablet.

Step 4

Use the remaining smaller piece to build your top clip. This should be slightly longer so that it can wrap over the top of the tablet. This is what secures the tablet in place.

Step 5

Washing up liquid rubbed onto tablet

Rub a small amount of washing up liquid along the top and bottom of the wrapped tablet.

Step 6

Now to position your tablet in place. Start by pressing the bottom side into the bottom shelves of Sugru. Then lift up the top clip and place the tablet underneath it.

Step 7

Slightly press the tops of the shelves around the base of the tablet. Do not wrap them round too much as gravity will make them droop. These shelves are just for support, it is the top clip that secures the tablet in place.

Step 8

Fold the top clip over the top and front of the tablet. It only needs to wrap about a centimetre over the front of the tablet to hold it in place.

Step 9

Sugru grips for tablet on kitchen wall

Remove the tablet by sliding it out of the side, the soapy water should make this possible. Once removed, press the top clip in tight to the wall (but do not make contact with the wall or any other Sugru). This will help it keep the tablet tight and secure against the wall once it has set. 

Sugru sets in 12-24 hours, but depending on the thickness of the application, for load-bearing projects, allow up to 48 hours for Sugru to fully set.

Please test your grips before using them.
