Stick on these thin silicone-rubber rails and forget about scratches from surfaces.

You might have a Smart Cover for the front of your iPad, but what's got its back?

Well, if you hate scratching its aluminum backside when you rest it on some surface impregnated with a million microscopic razorblades, BlueLounge's Kicks can ease the pain.

These thin silicone-rubber rails from the Los Angeles design studio stick to the back of your tab with a light adhesive from 3M that keeps them securely in place.

They're lightweight and flexible, and won't leave a mark if you remove or reposition them.

Kicks, which follow BlueLounge's Cool Feet pads for the Apple tablet, come in packs of four, priced at $11.95.
