"The BlackBelt and SafeGrip rugged cases protect tablets from the inevitable drops and bumps that can happen anytime and anywhere. And since schools often have limited budgets, preventing damage goes a long way toward protecting their investment while putting more of their resources into learning, and less on equipment repair or replacement."
