FAQ

What is a Nubbit?
Nubbit is a support accessory for use with tablets and e-readers devices that replaces the hard, thin edge of a device with a comfortable, organic grip.

Nubbit helps people with diminished hand function grip their device securely.

Nubbit can be used as a grip or stand, at home, at work or on the move, by those with a hand disability and enabled people alike.

Nubbit is available for a range of current iPad and Kindle products.


How does it work?
Nubbit is constructed of a semi-rigid internal structure enabling a ‘pinch’ action gripping the device securely. It is then over-moulded with a softer material providing a comfortable, pliant, outer surface. The channel provides a non-slip surface-to-surface cohesion with the device.

Once in place securely on side of the device Nubbit can be used as a hand grip or as a multi-positional stand.


How did Nubbit come to be?
“Nubbit is a product born out of necessity.  I first realised that Nubbit was needed when some years ago my daughter became disabled due to brain and spinal cord cancer.  Her hands became inverted and tremulous making it hard for her to hold a tablet.  At that time I was unable to find an accessory on the market that would help her do this.

This is how the idea for Nubbit started to form.    

The idea was to morph the edge of the device into a shape that would fit a hand in a relaxed and natural position. My daughter needed it, but I soon realised it would help anybody with reduced hand function.  As the product developed, it became clear that Nubbit could also be a desirable product for those without a disability.”

Can I use my Nubbit as a carry handle?
No.  Although Nubbit grips your device securely, it should only be used to hold your device while browsing/reading/watching movies and so on.  It should not be used as a general carry handle when transporting your device.
