Product Description

Toddlers are obsessed with pressing the home button on the iPhone®, iPadTM, and iPod touch®. Unfortunately, pressing the home button immediately takes toddlers out of their app, and they can wreak havoc on your data. The BubCap adhesive-backed home button cover is the solution to this problem. BubCap home button covers are adhesive-backed, semi-rigid tabs. BubCaps are just rigid enough to keep toddlers from pressing the home button, yet flexible enough that adults can activate the button with a firm push. There are two strengths of BubCap to help fit most family's needs. The standard BubCap is perfect for younger toddlers, particularly for use before the child has developed an inclination to press the home button. The thicker BubCap Ultra is for older toddlers or those children who are extremely driven to press the home button. The BubCap Ultra also tends to work better than the standard BubCap on the iPad, due to a slightly shallower activation depth on the iPad home button. The Intro-Pack contains 2 standard BubCap and 2 BubCap Ultra home button covers, so you can experiment to determine which product works best for your family on your device. The thicker BubCap Ultra can be used as a training device, to break your child of the habit of pressing the home button. Once your child forgets about the home button and starts focusing on the apps, then you can often switch to the standard BubCap, which is much easier for adults to press through. PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING: BubCaps may not work well over screen protector films. BubCaps may not work with all cases, or may require case removal to install and remove your BubCap. Please look carefully at your case and photos of the BubCap in use to make sure they will work together to your liking. FOR OLDER KIDS: try the BubCap Explorer 6-Pack, which includes two BubCap Max.

You can even reuse if you use a screen protector!

These are also great because once in apps, it prevents my little girl from pressing the home button (her favorite) and getting out of the app.

My son figured out how to peel this off within a couple of hours.

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!

My daughter loves the immediate feedback she gets by pushing the home button. This keeps her in the app and not continually pushing the home button and opening up anything she wants.

I use these for my Special Needs students with some of their augmentative communication devices so they can't get into the settings and change anything.

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.

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.

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!

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.
