These dock adapters enable your iPod touch (4th generation) to connect to the Apple Universal Dock and other products that use the Universal Dock system.
Simply insert the iPod touch dock adapter into the Universal Dock, then plug in your iPod touch. When you want to connect another iPod or an iPhone to the Universal Dock, pop out the iPod touch dock adapter and insert a different one.

Not A Custom Fit For 4th Gen Touch
What was Apple was thinking when these were designed? The 4th gen Touch will work when cradled into these dock adapters, however t he adapter cavity is much larger front-to-back than the body of the 4th gen Touch. Because of that, the adapter provides no structural support to the Touch when pressing the home button or using the touch screen while it is docked. It is no better than inserting the iPod into a dock that has no adapter installed. I am afraid that this lack of structural support will cause the dock connector port in the Touch to become distorted, and will lead to some of the erratic connection issues that you read about in some of the other reviews. Maybe someone else will come out with a dock adapter that is actually sized for the 4th gen Touch; the genuine Apple product definitely isn't the right fit. …

Not a Good Fit
My review is going to mirror reviews that others have already posted.
When I purchased these I assumed that they would be spec ially molded to allow my iPod touch to be easily inserted into my dock, however, the hole on the dock adapter is too large to allow the iPod touch to be easily docked.
I have an Apple dock and it takes me a few seconds to dock my iPod because the dock adapter is not shaped to fit the iPod touch; this seems to be just a generically shaped dock adapter that is being sold as one designed for the 4th generation iPod touch.
I am disappointed, Apple (which is becoming the norm with you lately). …

I really don't understand the folks that have wrote all the negative feedback on this. It fits the ipod perfectly, provides suppor t, and allows access to the button which is low on the unit. Sure it could be better with maybe a custom front fit with a carved out spot for the button but it works well as is. Very happy with the simple product. …
