Features of the Kensington SecureBack Rugged Case for Square Reader include:

• Rugged Dual Layer Construction offers maximum protection for the iPad and connected readers using a strong, cushioned layer of rubber with a raised bezel edge to protect the corners, back and screen from drops, bumps and scratches.

• Integrated Reader Protection provides durable protection for the Square Contactless & Chip Reader, and support for the Square Magstripe Reader.

• Rotating Hand Strap & Padded Shoulder Strap make it convenient to hold and use with the flexibility to accommodate vertical or horizontal viewing, and hands-free carrying.

• Non-Slip Grip provided by the rubberized texture makes the case easier to hold and prevents it from sliding off a table or desk.

• Tamper Prevention Cover Plates provide additional security for the power button and volume controls, reducing chances of an unauthorized user gaining access, while also keeping ports dust-free.

• Built-in ClickSafe® Anchor accommodates a ClickSafe cable lock (sold separately) to provide industry-leading theft protection for the iPad.

“We’ve designed the Kensington SecureBack Rugged Case for Square Readers with the unique requirements associated with safeguarding the iPad in a point-of-sale environment,” said Cameron Little, Director of Business Development, Kensington. “With the case, users can ‘protect while they accept,’ giving them greater confidence in their POS system, and less worry about possible damage when moving about. And given Kensington’s extensive experience with physical security, integrating the compatible anchor to accommodate the ClickSafe lock naturally extended the overall level of protection by providing the first line of defense against the theft of iPad and Square Reader.”
