    Does anyone know of a good tablet holder....i seen one that i like which sticks on the back of the tablet and allows it to connect to the holder on the transmitter but its only sold out the country and is expensive.I also see where a guy made one from a coat hanger but i`m not that good at it....would rather buy something.

    Many versions out there. Country in your profile helps.

    Not good at holding a pair of pliers? To each their own but I really think anyone could give it a go. It seriously took me less than 5 minutes to make the holder. The cost... perhaps 5 cents. Just snip the long section off the hanger with some snout nose pliers and just bend the hanger around the nose (of the pliers... not your face. That would hurt).

    It's not fancy... and sometimes store bought fancy is good. But this last one I made really works well.

    :D
    Solid with the rubber washer. I also put a small bit of rubber band under the clamp which attaches to the metal loop of the transmitter.

    Yea I will save my money and go this route. I have also seen something similar to the plastic ones in the plumbing and cabinet section at Home Depot for under $2.00.

    Make sure the part of the hanger on the top jaw of the phone holder has the _two_ ends bend inward with a space about 1/4" apart. So one side touches the tablet and the other is hooked by the phone holder. By spacing these apart a little the phone holder has something to easily grip onto.

    I think you can find them both on Ebay and Amazon.
    If still interested I can look for what seller I got them from.
