I travel a lot, and I watch a lot of movies on my iPhone. This stand lets me prop up the iPhone in landscape/portrait mode, and allows adjusting of the iPhone lean angle, especially on the airline seat tray. Once the stand is unfolded into 90 degrees, I can also pull up a couple of magazines from the airline seat pocket, hook the stand onto the magazines using one of 2 available sets of slots (you decide which angle is best for you) and place your iPhone for your own optimal angle.

This is the fourth iteration so far, and a great new feature: resized to fit iPad as well! - Airline mode works only for iPhone/iPod touch.


  1. Once printed (both parts), insert a 1.0mm dia metal pin through the stand hinges
  2. I am using ABS, and the part\\'s pretty slippery against the iPhone; an easy way to fix this is to get 2 short lengths of heatshrink and shrink them to the two \\'hooks\\'. If you are not sure where, just assemble, prop up your iPhone and it\\'s pretty self-explanatory from there.

Just updated sketchup and stl files. Current version prints better, with a stronger hinge that will fit a 1mm dia, rod better.

Last update: 26 Apr 2010 for iPad compatibility (Deeper for stability, beveled base for more contact with tables)

Please note that the functionality where the ipod/iphone is held when the stand is CLOSED is credited to my friend CopperBlue
