When you order a keyguard for an iPad Mini 8.3, specify the name and number of the case you find here.  You must use the red number to correctly identify a case!  Cases are listed alphabetically, but you can also search the page by the name of an iPad case to find one that is sold under more than one brand name.

If you have an 8.3" iPad Mini case that we don't have depicted here, specify "Other" case when ordering a keyguard and send us a link to the case you have.  We'll charge you a small fee to buy the case, measure it, design a keyguard to fit it, and make and test fit the keyguard.  After that, we'll add it to our iPad case rack and put it on our list so you can order keyguards to fit it in the future.
