Even if we’re not at the office anymore, we’re getting more screen time than ever. From video conferences to streaming shows and, well, working, we’re leaning on our MacBooks more than ever. This tool for attaching tablets and phones to the side of any laptop makes it easy to maximize your digital workspace.

Mountie+ frees up space on your MacBook’s desktop for anything else you use your devices to do. A simple, robust set of clamps grips to the side of your screens. They’re contoured so the grip is firm near the edge of the devices, but not on the screens themselves.

Tested extensively with MacBooks, Mountie+ works with most other laptops and some monitors as well. It can accommodate most smartphones and tablets between 5mm and 9mm, and holds the device a close 4mm from the MacBook’s main screen for maximum continuity. There’s even a cord pass-through to redirect your charging cord behind the laptop’s screen so it can stay charged while you use it.

If you use macOS Catalina’s handy Sidecar feature to turn your iPad into a second screen for your MacBook, the Mountie+ will be your new best friend.
