Gerp is a device that will attach to the back of your tablet or e-reader and act as either a handle or a stand. It attaches by virtue of a powerful suction on one end that won't come undone easily, even when you move your digital device around. It's black, so it won't clash with the design or the color of any tablet or e-reader that you pair it with. You can use it in a variety of places, including on the couch, in bed, in the kitchen, and outdoors. Gerp is compatible with any digital device, regardless of the brand or style.
When you use Gerp to hang onto your tablet or e-reader, you won't experience as much hand pain or strain as you would if you had to hold it in your hands. You can securely grip the handle with one hand, so you'll be able to keep the other hand free in order to type, use the touchscreen, drink a beverage, or do virtually anything else. Plus, if you want a total hands-free experience, you can use Gerp as a stand instead of a handle. This device is ideal for seniors suffering from arthritis and anyone else who permanently or temporarily must limit the use of one or both hands.
The cost of Gerp is $29.95 plus $6.95 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Gerp by paying the extra shipping fee of $6.95 for a total price of $43.85. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Gerp being discontinued. Gerp may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
To start using Gerp, lay the device flat against the back of an e-reader or tablet, and push the ratchet lever down.
To use Gerp as a handle, simply hang onto its middle with either hand, and to use it as a stand, rest its base against a flat surface.
When you're finished with your Gerp for the time being, pull the ratchet lever up, This will break the hold that the device's suction has on the back of your tablet or e-reader.
Gerp has been designed with ergonomics in mind, so that means when you grip it, you're likely to feel comfortable, and it's unlikely that your gripping position will cause pain.
While some accessories are only compatible with digital devices of certain brands, your Gerp will be able to act as a stand or handle for a tablet or e-reader of any brand. In fact, it'll attach to any flat, smooth surface, so you may be able to use it with other items in your possession, too.
Your Gerp can be taken outdoors, so you can have fun or complete work on your tablet or e-reader while sitting in the sun or strolling around your yard.
Every Gerp is black, so each has a professional appearance that is suitable for users of both genders, and will look good with a digital device of any color.
While each Gerp is a moderate size, these devices are not heavy, and once you attach one to a digital device, that device will automatically feel lighter in your hand than usual. You'll be able to switch hands, if you choose, without feeling pain and strain.
After you remove your Gerp from the back of a tablet or e-reader, you'll notice that it hasn't left any gunky residue or any other kind of mark on your digital device. Due to the fact that it attaches to these devices via suction, it does not make use of any sticky adhesive.
When you're watching movies in bed or on the couch, making a recipe in the kitchen, or chatting on Skype, among other activities, you may want to keep both hands free. Fortunately, by using Gerp as a stand for your digital device, this is possible. You can use it beside you on a counter, table, or desk, and it'll even stand up on a fairly flat pillow without falling over.
Some users may be looking for a stand that will work with their smartphone, too, but Gerp is actually larger than a standard smartphone, and is therefore too large to be used with most phones.
Gerp will attach more effectively to a clean surface than a dirty one. Hence, you should make sure the back of your tablet or e-reader is free of any dust or dirt before you attach the handle / stand to it.
By using Gerp, you'll improve your ability to multitask. You'll be able to keep either one or both hands free to complete other tasks while you read, chat or browse the internet on your digital device at the same time.
