Rated 1 out of 5 by Shield Stand not Strong & Durable!!! In less than three months of usage, my shield stand clips started to show signs of wear and slowly with time it has now completely come off the base shield, thereby making my iPad stand useless forever as I am unable keep my iPad stand and rest against this clip!!! This surely is either a defective piece or bad engineering design!!! July 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Need or not I think it's a good protector but not necessary because my son barely ever has it on the case unless he takes it out of the house. January 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Esssential With the cost of the other two components in this 3-part system, you might be tempted to skip this. Don't. It is a surprisingly useful stand that doubles as a screen cover. It clips inconspicuously to the back of the mini when in use, and makes this case perfest for tossing your mini into any bag.

You need the rubbery inner shell (the "slip cover"). Then there's a hard plastic shell that goes around that ("Lid/Base", I think). It snaps around the rubber slip cover. We also ordered a third component (Shield Stand Assembly, I think, though it was confusing) that can either snap around the back while you're using the iPad, or you can remove it (with some difficulty, since it's tight) and snap it on the front to protect the screen when not in use. The problem with that design is that the 3rd piece is a pain, and since it's not attached, I tend to set mine aside. (it's lost right now). And the case is not comfortable to hold for extended times.
