Product Description

IMPORTANT UPDATE: (1) BubCaps were introduced before Guided Access with Single App Mode was added to iOS several years ago. Please investigate this free solution before you purchase BubCaps. (2) When a BubCap is installed over a home button with Touch ID, you can't unlock your device with your fingerprint. (3) iPhones and iPads with Touch ID are easier to push through than home buttons on older devices. For that reason, the description of which BubCaps work best with each device is only accurate with older pre-Touch ID iPhones and iPads. ABOUT BUBCAPS: Young kids love pressing the home button on the iPadTM, iPhone®, and iPod touch®. Unfortunately, pressing the home button takes kids right out of the app, so they can wreak havoc on your data. The BubCap adhesive-backed home button cover is a solution to this problem. BubCaps are made from semi-rigid material, and when affixed as directed, are rigid enough to keep toddlers from pressing the home button. Yet adults have the hand strength to push the home button through the BubCap. There are three strengths of BubCaps. The standard BubCap offers the least resistance, often for toddlers on an iPhone or iPod touch. The thicker BubCap Ultra is often for toddlers on an iPad, or older kids on an iPhone or iPod touch. The BubCap Max offers the most resistance (other than our industrial-grade BubCap Pro). The BubCap Intro-Pack doesn't include the BubCap Max, and we recommend most customers try the BubCap Explorer 6-Pack, unless they are sure they don't need the BubCap Max. PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING: BubCaps aren't recommended to be applied over screen protector films. BubCaps may not work with all cases, please look carefully at your case and photos of the BubCap in use to make sure they will work together.

So I had to wait about a year for a home button solution for my son's obsession with hitting it on his itouch. It was completely worth it. I just wish I thought of such a genius solution. I have saved countless hours a week by not having to restart videos, games and other activities on his device. The fact that the bubcap sticks like dried on rice crispies is certainly a plus. No matter how hard he hits the home button it doesn't engage. You almost have to have superhuman strength if you select the Bubcap Ultra as this is serious HOME button protection. The best part is you can take it off and put it on whenever you want. I can tell you it has been the best $5 I've ever spent. I've had it on his itouch for almost 4 months and it's as good as it was on day one. If you don't have the same results, which I'm sure you won't have, be thankful that it was only the price of your daily cup of coffee. [...]

What a great product! I'm a teacher and many of my students hit the 'home' button on my iPad in the middle of a lesson. It drives me crazy! Now they can't do that. BubCaps work wonderfully.

Thank you!

BubCap Home Button Covers deliver as promised. I purchased the Intro-Pack with 2 BubCaps and 2 BubCap Ultras BubCap Home Button Cover Intro-Pack (contains 2 BubCaps & 2 BubCap Ultras). The regular BubCaps work perfectly to prevent my one-year-old grandson from pressing the home button on my iPad and iPhone. I need to use extra pressure to activate the home button with the regular BubCap on, but not so much that I'm bothered by it. The protection is well worth the slight extra effort. The adhesive BubCap is thin and remains stuck on until you are ready to remove it. I know, because I tried the Ultra on my iPad and removed it when I decided it would be more suitable in the future when my grandson is stronger. I strongly recommend this product.

The Bubcap did keep my 2 yr old from pressing the home button, and both I and my 4 yr old could still use the home button, which is what I was hoping for. Unfortunately, my 2 yr old had the Bubcap peeled off in less than a minute! I applied the Bubcap as instructed and let it set overnight. The next morning I gave my phone to my daughter and in under a minute she came walking over to me with the Bubcap in her hand saying "yucky, garbage" and she threw it away.

I wish I could give this 5 stars, as I really wanted it to work for us, but unfortunately, it was a waste of money.

A parent's best friend- my 14 month old was always pushing the home button on the ipad and exiting out of her games. She would end up dialing, emailing, deleting apps...driving me crazy! I'm so glad I found this product. Peel and stick like a sticker, and presto! No more problems! She can now play her games, watch her movies, and not mess up anything, or keep saying, "uh oh! uh oh!" every 10 seconds when I have to re-start an app for her. Thank you to the inventors!

I have a very heavy otter case on my iphone 4 to let my 1 year old son play with the phone (to toot my own horn he can unlock the iphone and call grandma already). The plan was to use this to keep him inside his games so he couldn't access my SMS, mail, etc. Unfortunately the bubcap plus the thicker than average case means that I can't even press down the home key.

I put it on an old Iphone 3 and now it works perfectly without the case.

I don't think you can deduct stars because of my case choice, should just be aware that if you prefer a rubberized case, this probably isn't for you.

My son loves playing with the iPhone but he keeps hitting the home button and dropping himself out of whatever app he's using. I installed the BubCap, it stayed on securely, it fit well with my case, and it prevented him from depressing the home button. I found it a little annoying during my time at the office so I peeled the BubCap off, no problems, no residue, and it stuck right back on.

Love that they give you four, that's nice.

Great for your Apple devices that you want your toddler to use. It makes it so they can not hit the home button and get out of hte app you put it on. It would be nice if Apple just came up with a better locking system for use during an app, but this is a great substitute! It took a little getting used to for myself to know how hard and where to push but I got it in a few days.
