1. A method of using a mount for attaching a tablet to a post of a forklift so as to allow a user to use the tablet from either inside or outside of the forklift or to stow the tablet, comprising the steps of:
a) attaching the mount to a post of the forklift such that a mounting case of the mount is inside of the forklift to allow a user to access the mounting case from inside of the forklift, the mounting case for holding a tablet;
b) pulling a locking pin of a release assembly of the mounting case of the mount up out of a first through bore in a pivot pipe of the mounting case;
b) swiveling the mounting case 90 degrees to an outer side of an arm by way of the pivot pipe of the mounting case pivoting, such that the mounting case is outside of the forklift; and
d) releasing the locking pin of the release assembly of the mounting case into a second through bore in the pivot pipe of the mounting case that is 90 degrees offset from the first through bore to secure the mounting case from moving and thereby allowing a user to access the mounting case from outside of the forklift such that a user can use a tablet when that tablet is mounted in the mounting case.
