    How thick is a ZUGU case with the iPad in it?

    Approximately ½” thick.

    Is the screen of the iPad covered and protected when the case is not in use?

    Yes. When the case is closed and not in use, the screen is completely covered by the top cover of your Zugu case.

    What are your cases made of?

    Our cases are made of the best materials on the market! We use a fully vegan, synthetic leather and all our cases feature a TPU + PC shell to ensure major drop protection. 

    What's the best way to clean my Zugu case?

    We typically suggest a leather cleaner (e.g., Meguiar's cleaner conditioner) for the external area and a lint roller for the interior microfiber material.

    How do I find the right case?

    To ensure you are purchasing the correct case for your iPad, please follow the below instructions. 

    Find your iPad model number in your iPad Settings:
    STEP 1 - Go to settings and select "General"
    STEP 2 - Select "About"
    STEP 3 - Tap on the MU model number and a model number starting with A & 4 digits will appear 

    Once you've found your model number that starts with the letter "A", click here and enter it in the search field to see what case is the perfect fit!

    How do I install a Zugu screen protector?

    1. Clean your iPad screen using the Zeiss wipes that come with the screen protector.

    2. Wipe with microfiber towel. Gently press "frame guide" onto your iPad. 

    3. Use the sticker to remove stray dust or dirt.

    4. Remove adhesive backing from the screen protector and place onto your iPad screen. 

    5. Tap the glass and watch the magic 

    6. Smooth the surface out by using the soft card provided. 

    7. Lingering bubbles? Lift the closest corner and release the screen protector back down. 

    8. Enjoy the protected screen!

    How do I mount the case to my fridge?

    Please click here to watch a short video with instructions on how to mount your case on a magnetic surface or refrigerator.

    Please note, not all refrigerators are magnetic. In order for the case to stick on the refrigerator there has to be a magnetic connection. If you're using a stainless-steel refrigerator, in most cases the steel will contain iron (Ferritic Stainless Steel) which makes it magnetic, however if the alloy is austenitic, magnets will not attach to it.  If you are able to apply everyday magnets to your refrigerator, then the case should absolutely hold in place and not slip. 

    Why isn't the sleep/wake feature working on my iPad?

    If you are experiencing issues with your sleep/wake functionality, please be sure to try the following troubleshooting tips:

    1.  Go to your settings - Display & Brightness - and confirm the lock/unlock button is enabled.
    2.  Turn the iPad on and off to "reboot" it.
    3. Confirm the iPad is in the case correctly making sure you can see the camera through the camera hole on the back. 

    If you're still experiencing issues, please feel free to reach out to our support team here.

    How is sales tax determined?

    The amount of sales tax charged on your orders depends on multiple factors, including the type of item purchased and your delivery address. The tax rate is the combined state and local rates associated with your address. For example, if you live in a state that does not impose a sales tax, you may still see tax calculated on your order if it is delivered to another state. Sales tax is calculated and charged at the time you place the order.
