G-Hold's latest look, Vintage Vinyl, makes its debut at independent record store Underground Solu'shn. You'll find the new design for sale among the shop's collection of dance, electronic and specialist vinyl - just look for them next to the decks. The G-Holders were keen to show their love of vinyl by launching at a store that's been committed to the cause since 1995.
"I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the G-Hold as a great product. You can still use your iPad or your tablet, but use it in a good ergonomic position, and minimise any problems from holding it for too long, or holding it in a bad position."
David Bowmaker, B.Sc (Physio), M.Sc (Sports Science), M.Phty (Manip Physio), MCSP, HCPC, MMPA (Aus), is a Chartered Physiotherapist and Musculoskeletal Specialist. He contacted us recently to let us know how pleased he was with G-Hold's ergonomic benefits, and so of course we had to get him on video.
Here's what he had to say about G-Hold:
"Hello, my name is David Bowmaker, I'm a Chartered Physiotherapist at LifeFit Wellness in Falkirk. I just wanted to have a wee chat with you about the G-Hold, which is what I’m holding just now. With my tablet, when I’m working, I use the touchscreen for my notes, and thankfully about a year ago I was introduced to G-Hold as a way to safely hold my tablet.
"As you can see it means I can hold it very easily without dropping it at all, even in this position. What is very important to me for my own use of the tablet, is that the G-Hold allows me to sit up properly and have my neck and back in a good position, and my hand in a very nice, relaxed grip.
"Obviously for clients as well, if they have neck or back problems, then this could be a very useful device in terms of using their device without any problems. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the G-Hold as a great product. You can still use your iPad or your tablet, but use it in a good ergonomic position, and minimise any problems from holding it for too long, or holding it in a bad position, slumped, as most people do."
We're incredibly proud to announce that readers and historians can now get their hands on a G-Hold at the National Library of Scotland. Everything published in Scotland is archived at the NLS, so as a little part of Scottish manufacturing history, we're delighted to be stocked in their shop, too.
Head along to George IV Bridge, where you will find G-Hold alongside lots of other Scottish products as well as unique items celebrating the library's programme of exhibitions.

Sharing shelf space, appropriately enough, with Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas, G-Hold has arrived at its first London location. Dangerous boys and dangerous girls (like Team G-Hold) can make sure their tablets or e-readers stay safe, no matter how extreme things get, by heading down to Blackwell's in Holborn and picking up one of our Pop colour G-Holds.

Robert Louis Stephenson said "Bright is the ring of words," and the Scottish Parliament has certainly taken that quote to heart since the Parliament building opened over a decade ago. Now, with the addition of the G-Hold Pop range of colours to its shop, it's not just words that are bright, hands can get in on the action, too. Look out for G-Holds in yellow, pink, green and blue, as well as the new black-on-black engraved look.

The bookshop at the prestigious Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh is the first stockist of G-Hold's new Pop colour range. The range includes G-Holds in pink, green, blue and yellow, and the Fruitmarket is also the first place to stock our new, very cool engraved G-Holds in black on black.
The Fruitmarket Gallery has exhibited art from some of the most exciting modern artists past and present, including Turner Prize winner Martin Creed and Scots visionary Jim Lambie. Their current show, Possibilities of the Object, showcases experimental Brazilian works, many of which are from new and up-and-coming artists.
Make sure you pop (ha ha) along and try the new G-Holds for yourself - we've even got a helping hand on display to show you how to use it.
Visit the gallery website here for details of opening times.
We've been spending a lot of time with teachers recently, and they've been telling us that they love having tablets in the classroom, but often these pricey devices can get dropped and broken when students handle them. That's why we're so delighted to have teamed up with UK specialists The Tablet Academy, who are one of the UK's leading education consultancy and ICT teacher training organisations, to help teachers and students keep a hold of their tablets.
You can buy G-Holds online from them here in their shop.
We've been really delighted to have Mike Deutsch and Steve Semler of Creative Tech Gadgets joining us on our booth at CES 2015. They will be working with US retailers of G-Hold®, including new stockist B&H Photo, Video and Pro Audio in New York City. They're also lovely guys, so come along to booth #35682 to meet them and the rest of the G-Holders.
