STM’s legendary Dux case now comes with a keyboard, the perfect addition to a product line that has long been the industry standard for maximum protection with minimal bulk. Featuring rugged construction—using some of the lightest materials available—to safeguard your device from the rigours of the classroom environment, Dux also boasts a clear panel design that makes it easy to scan tags or barcodes on a device (with no need to remove the case).

best-in-class protection (and the convenience of a keyboard)

we believe good enough isn’t good enough

So, we make it a point to go above and beyond—even in the way we test our products. Military standards for drop testing require that a product like Dux be able to maintain all operating functions after plummeting 26 times for a height of 4 feet. We subjected Dux to our own extreme testing at 6.6 feet. It passed. And that calls for the best drop of all…a mic drop.

Keyboard Feature Banner

our locking keyboard is a greater attraction than a magnet

It’s one thing for your keyboard to be firmly attached to your laptop when sitting atop a desk. But entirely something else to remain secured when carried in your backpack. Because we understand that part of the reason you have a laptop is the ability to be mobile, we designed our keyboard so it won’t detach while in your bag (a primary cause of damage to the screen). Our push button release ensures a more reliable connection than a magnetic one.

because sometimes you just can’t buy a (missing) vowel

If only it was easy enough to ask Pat for the letters you need…to replace the ones that go missing from a keyboard. By designing individual keys that are securely locked into place, we’ve eliminated the opportunity for idle hands to mess around and tamper with digital gear they don’t own but is in their possession. (Of course, they would never do such a thing, right?)

Keyboard Feature Banner

our stand’s stability gives you viewing angle capability

Some feel the ideal position for their iPad is a 45-degree angle. Others prefer something more upright. We’re not going to take sides in something so particular and personal. We’d rather make everyone happy. And thanks to the almost 180° range of our stable stand, it’s possible to do just that. Choose from a wide array of different viewing possibilities and pick the one that’s perfect for you. Bonus ability: this feature can also be used as a handle for teacher demonstrations.

you’ll flip for this feature that flips for you

The Dux keyboard can fold 360° around the back of the case so you can lay your iPad on top of it. This simple reversal gives you the ability to use your digital device in its more traditional method—sans keyboard—without the need to detach anything. Don’t worry, keys automatically deactivate in this position (and will reactivate 3-4 seconds after being returned 360° in the other direction).

Additional Features

  • Keyboard is powered by a 5-pin secure connector (not a Bluetooth keyboard)
  • iPad can be quickly and easily installed in under 30 seconds
  • Exceptionally thin (.95") to work with most charging carts

Make sure that the lightning connector is in the UNLOCK position (down). This is VERY IMPORTANT– if the lightning connector is not in the UNLOCK position, it could snap off when the iPad is inserted, and the keyboard will not work.


Firmly slide the bottom of the iPad into the bottom of the case, making sure that the frame covers the bottom edge of the iPad.


Firmly push the top left and right upper corners of the iPad into the case, so that they snap into place.


Move the Lightning connector into the LOCK position (up). This engages the Lightning connector with the iPad and connects it with the keyboard. It also connects the iPad to the case for charging purposes. If the lightning connector isn’t locked, the iPad is not connected with the keyboard and will not work.


Make sure that the Lightning connector is in the UNLOCK position (down). This is VERY IMPORTANT– if the iPad is taken out of the case without unlocking the Lightning connector, the connector could snap off.


Release TOP RIGHT CORNER of the iPad by pushing the corner back and away from the iPad


Release the BOTTOM RIGHT from the case by firmly pushing the TPU corner away from the iPad


The iPad will be easy to remove once the top and bottom right corners are released from the case.


Place the bottom of the keyboard connector into the bracket


There is a magnet in the connector area that will locate the keyboard into the correct position, but it must be locked into place


To lock the keyboard in place, CLOSE THE CASE and PRESS FIRMLY on the spine area at the top. The keyboard will click twice when it is locked in correctly. If you only hear one click, it’s not locked in and needs to be pressed again.


Firmly press the grey button on the front left side of the case, just above the keyboard. When the button is lower than the case, it’s in the release position


Remove the keyboard by pulling it away from the case
