Design


The Mini mount for the all-aluminum Mac mini is like no other. Using a variety of recyclable elements to form a sturdy mounting solution, the Mini mount actually latches on to your Mac mini. It's a stable, secure mount that can be used in virtually any application.

By replacing the rubber base that comes standard with the Mac mini, the Mini mount secures to the same metal posts on the Mac mini chassis. The end result? A Mac mini that can be mounted in any orientation and affixed to virtually any surface. The mount features H-Squared's standard hole pattern as well as 75 and 100mm VESA patterns. What's more, the Mini mount is basically invisible once the Mac mini is mounted. It's our lowest-profile mount ever and also the most secure.

The design replicates the stock base of the Mac mini, including the EMI shielding, gasket, and air intakes so your Mac mini performs exactly the same. There's no Wi-Fi signal loss or airflow issues. In short, the Mac mini will feel right at home when attached to the Mini mount.
Great for:
• Home entertainment centers
• Digital signage systems
• Kiosks
• Institutional use

Backlighting


The optional backlight kit consists of a USB-powered bright, white LED that casts a cool, even glow around the Mini mount. It looks great in home theaters and other applications where you want to show off your Mac mini- even when it's dark.

Theft-Deterrent


Although the Mac mini no longer features a cable lock mechanism, we've designed a lock within the Mini mount that can deter theft. The metal frame mount points provide ample security and the new lock pin can be engaged and secured with a security screw.

The Mini mount is essentially invisible when the Mac mini is secured onto it- putting the focus on your aluminum unibody computer and not on the way it's mounted. There's plenty of clearance around the mount to route cabling behind the Mac mini.

Horizontal Mounting


The Mini mount can be mounted on a wall or other vertical surface but it also can be mounted horizontally such as underneath a desk, countertop, or table. Because of the enclosed design of the Mini mount, the Mac mini still functions great upside down.

Optional Super Drive Mount


The Drive Mount allows you to mount your Apple Super Drive directly next to your Mac mini. The mount uses a unique combination of friction mounting coupled with a hook and loop to easily hold the Super Drive on any vertical surface.

How does the Mini mount work?

By replacing the rubber base that comes standard with the Mac mini, the Mini mount secures to the same metal posts on the Mac mini chassis. The end result? A Mac mini that can be mounted in any orientation and affixed to virtually any surface. What's more, the Mini mount is basically invisible once the Mac mini is mounted. It's our lowest-profile mount ever, but also the most secure.

The design replicates the stock base of the Mac mini, including the EMI shielding, gasket, and air intakes so your Mac mini performs exactly the same. There's no Wi-Fi signal loss or airflow issues. In short, the Mac mini will feel right at home when attached to the Mini mount.

Can the Mac mini be mounted upside-down?

There are two things to consider when mounting the Mac mini upside-down:

1. Cooling: The all-aluminum mini's active cooling system has an air intake through the base with an exhaust port at the rear of the Mac. The Mini mount not only replicates the air intake functionality of the stock Mac mini base, but also adds about .5" of clearance from the mounting surface thereby giving the opportunity for even greater air circulation.

2. Optical and hard drive performance: The optical drive of the Mac mini uses a slot-loading, spindle clamp drive mechanism that holds the disc in place when in use by the drive. Therefore, optical discs will work regardless of the orientation of the drive itself. Care should always be taken when ejecting optical discs from the Mac mini. If the drive is pointing downward, it is recommended that a hand be placed under the drive to ensure that the disc does not drop to the ground. The internal hard drive of the Mac mini is a 2.5" portable-grade drive that is designed to be utilized in any orientation.

How do you install the optional backlight?

Unlike our clear acrylic products, the Mini mount is a opaque ABS enclosure. To backlight the Mac mini using the optional backlight kit, we developed a clear disk that is inserted between the Mini mount and the mounting surface. The disk is about the same diameter of the Mini mount and the LED is inserted into the disk. Once the USB cable is inserted into the a powered USB port (such as the ports on the back of the Mac mini), the entire disk will illuminate casting a soft, white shadow around the perimeter of the Mac mini.

How can the Mac mini be locked to the mount?

The Mini mount includes an integrated sliding latch. The latch provides an effective tamper-resistant lock that will secure the Mac mini in virtually any installation and is secured with a standard phillips-head screw. Replacing that screw with an optional tamper-resistant screw and/or thread lock, the screw can be permanently installed thus preventing the disengaging of the latch. Contact us if you'd like more information on obtaining the security screw and bit.

Can you see the mount when the Mac is installed?

The Mini mount is essentially invisible when the Mac mini is secured onto it- putting the focus on your aluminum unibody computer and not on the way it's mounted. There's plenty of clearance around the mount to route cabling behind the Mac mini.
