Non-slip strips for Palmtop

Non-slip strips for Palmtop

As soon as I pulled my HP 200LX from the box, I knew there was a problem. The 200LX was replacing my Casio Boss which has a rubberized case and grips securely, while the 200LX's case is hard plastic and slippery. The last thing I wanted to do was drop my new Palmtop, and I feared it would slip from my fingers every time I picked it up.

My solution was to apply Grip-it Strips (from Better Hold Products) to the top of the 200LX. The strips are adhesive plastic appliqués with a rough surface, and have greatly improved my hold on the Palmtop. I applied two rows of a zigzag design along the bottom edge of the 200LX's lid around the corner from the latch. You need at least two rows to create a good grip. I also applied strips along the 200LX's bottom but they interfered with the Palmtop's rubber feet so I removed them.

Now when I pull the Palmtop from my jacket pocket, it no longer feels as though it's about to slip from my fingers. I also get a lot of comments about the customized look of my computer.

Grip-it Strips are available in either zigzag or wavy designs, in aqua, purple, gray or black. I used aqua to complement my 200LX's dark gray-green color. The strips cost about $9 per package and one package is enough for about four Palmtops. You can also use them for notebook computers, cellular phones, etc.
