A combination of four continuous 90° sweeps lets the Pocket Tripod hold the iPhone at literally any angle.
Portrait and Landscape
There’s no wrong way of using the Pocket Tripod. It can hold the iPhone facing in any direction, both in landscape and portrait.
The Pocket Tripod is as thin as two credit cards stacked on top. It fits in any wallet, so it’ll always be there when you need it.
It’s hidden away in your wallet until you need it
The Pocket Tripod is a must have gadget for your iPhone. At only 11.3 grams (0.4 oz), and 2.3mm thick, it hides in any wallet until it’s needed. Its precise angle adjustment is matched only by full-size photography tripods, and is perfect for setting up your iPhone to point to exactly what you need it to. Whether you want to capture a breathtaking time lapse, or simply want to be included in a group photo. Because it adjusts to any angle, you can use any flat surface of any odd height, and still take that Skype or FaceTime call, hands free. The Pocket Tripod also lifts your iPhone off the surface you place it on, keeping it safe from accidental spills; and it’s the only stand of this size that doesn’t obstruct your screen while doing that, making it perfect for watching movies on the go.
Built to Last
The Pocket Tripod is made of high-tech plastics, engineered to be robust and durable. It’s been designed for maximum functionality of its remarkably thin and compact profile. Each unit is individually tested for quality and functionality and is backed with a lifetime warranty against wear and defects.
An iPhone Tripod with only two “legs”
The Pocket Tripod derives its name from its functionality. The Pocket Tripod’s circular rails provide the same tilt angle adjustment as a photography tripod’s head. The Pocket Tripod’s unique design is what allows it to pack the functionalities of a full-size photography tripod, its head, and an iPhone tripod mount or adapter into a space as compact as two credit cards.

“I’m still blown away that the angle is adjustable like that. I like things this small and compact, as I travel constantly.
This ‘tripod’ will be useful to me and I will definitely add it to my backpack.”
- Steve Wozniak
Co-Founder of Apple
“It’s an impeccably-machined plastic contraption the size of a business card that cleverly tilts, swivels, and pivots to turn into a sturdy, secure cradle for your iPhone.”

The Crowd Loves It
The funds required to manufacture the pocket tripod were raised with the help of 2,565 backers on Kickstarter. Thanks to their overwhelming support, we were able to raise almost twice our funding goal and start production of the Pocket Tripod.
Try it First
The free Pocket Tripod app has an interactive 3D model of the pocket tripod. It gives you a unique way to interact with the pocket tripod, that is as close as it gets to having the real thing in your hands.
The app even lets you experiment with different colors for the pocket tripod, which you can suggest to us for our future productions.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does the Pocket Tripod work with the iPad?
The current model is too small to hold the weight of the iPad or the iPad mini. This small size is constrained by the Pocket Tripod’s size in its card form. But since iPad users, unlike iPhone users, don’t carry their devices in their pockets, we’re planning on making a Pocket Tripod that will attach to the back of the iPad instead of fitting in a wallet for the iPad.
