    Breaks easily

    • Written by from Eugene

    I have had this for a while. A few months after I bought it, the bottom plastic piece that keeps it from sliding out the bottom just broke off all by itself. I have glued it back a couple of time but it doesn't last. Great concept. Not worth the money.

    Poorly Designed!!

    • Written by from Columbus

    I just installed one of these for my Time Capsule, and I can tell you that the functional design took a far backseat to the "it's gotta look cool" marketing group. The 1/8" lip is totally laughable. While this lip does exist, it is designed to catch on the edge of the rubber base pad on the TC, hardly secure over the long term. They should have extended this lip out to reach fully underneath the bottom. As it is, your Airport backbone and TC drive will be suspended above the floor (8-feet to concrete in my case) supported by only a thin lip of plastic against a rubber backing. NO WAY!! I had to install a small wooden block just below the TC as "safety stop" just in case the lip lost contact with the rubber base pad. Yes, I could have rotated the installation by 90-degrees, but that doesn't help. The plastic "side rails" that catch into the grooves of the TC are themselves not molded, but are simple inserts that can easily fall out, and are held in place only by friction. While it's better than duct tape and bailing wire, it's not much better. If you go this route, consider this bracket to be only a starting point. You'll need something extra for a safety stop, and super glue to make it properly secure.

    Shattered when I tried to install

    • Written by from Bethesda

    I tried to install this on our basement cork board and it shattered from the tension of the screws!! And the screws weren't even on that tight.

    The idea of making a wall mount bracket out of fragile polycarbonate is just ridiculous. It should have been made of aluminum or sheet metal or something that could withstand being screwed onto a surface. Now I have a broken bracket, and still no way to mount my Time Capsule. I am quite unhappy.

    Great Idea! Poor Design! Capsule falls right out!

    • Written by from Sherman Oaks

    Great idea, very slick looking. BUT, the "integrated stop" or lip at the bottom that prevents your Time Capsule from "sliding" out is only about 1/8" thick. The slightest movement of the Time Capsule such as when you are dusting the unit, any adjusting/unplugging/plugging of the power/USB/Ethernet cable, or simply bumping the unit....AND IT SLIPS RIGHT PAST the "Integrated stop" and FALLS RIGHT OUT ....And there goes your $300-$500 hard drive that has all your most important information backed up on it. So surprised at how overlooked this was in the design. It looks slick, but it's just not worth the risk. If you must use it, you MUST mount is sideways. That is the only way to prevent this Accident Waiting To Happen.
