Product Information

  • Overview

    The Twelve South HiRise for iMac is a clever new adjustable stand that raises your iMac or Apple Display to your optimal viewing height. A stunningly simple design and an easy-to-adjust internal metal support shelf make this a must-have accessory for anyone who works long hours in front of an iMac or Apple Display.

    Easily adjustable

    Choose from six viewing heights by simply adjusting the position of the metal shelf within HiRise. Perforated, magnetic plates on the front and rear of HiRise allow easy access—and ventilation—for items you store inside HiRise, like backup drives, a Mac mini, or personal items like your wallet and keys. The faceplates are held in place with magnets, or can be attached using the included screws.

    Fully compatible

    HiRise works with all iMac and Apple Displays that have an L-shaped stand. Now you have an elegant way to perfectly align your Apple Display with your iMac screen.

The magnetic front and back panel make getting access to the interior simple - there are screws if you need more security, but I prefer the easy access.

    If you're placing USB cables/devices inside Hi-Rise route the cables through the cut out in the iMac/Display's stand and in to the back of Hi-Rise for a tidy appearance.

    You have to assemble Hi-Rise yourself, but it's trivial. All the parts are perfectly machined and slide together easily. The result is a very solid and study product.

  • Same Fit and Finish Issues

    I also have issues with the fit, the side of the top and bottom, at front and back, do not align properly. You make one side's top I also have issues with the fit, the side of the top and bottom, at front and back, do not align properly. You make one side's top and bottom line up, say front R then the back L is thrown off. Fortunately the mis-alignment is not enough to cause problems putting the back and front covers on, they do not show significant gaps and stay relatively flush. Sliding the shelf in was more difficult than need be, maybe spraying some silicone on the plastic wrapped edges would help? It didn't require my full body weight as another's review.

    The screws seem on the small side, and look fragile as though they could strip even being a hex and not slotted or phillips. Definitely be careful and don't over tighten the back plate or your iMac may be permanently locked into the HiRise.

    These two issues have me knock it down one star each. It definitely tidies up my desktop as I can place a TB HDD across the top and not have to reach around either side to turn it on. I placed a USB hub inside the HiRise out of site, and another TB HDD on the 12 South BackPack behind my iMac.

    Overall a great idea but for $80 QA should be better!

I decided I wanted one since it's I read a number of reviews all praising the novelty of the HiRise and the ease of installation. I decided I wanted one since it's a much more elegant solution than raising my iMac with a textbook.

    I expected the installation to be a breeze, but it truly wasn't. It looks very foolproof, with clear instructions on how to assemble the HiRise. However, for some reason, the one I received was just not precisely cut to slide together easily. I eventually needed to use nearly my entire body weight to slide the top and bottom pieces together against the floor, which from other reviews I read was absolutely not necessary. I can only chalk it up to back luck and the top and bottom pieces were just not made well for each other. It's safe to say that I will probably never disassemble the HiRise ever again, if it's even possible.

    Now that I've set it up though, my desk looks amazing! Too bad the installation had to be so rough. My suggestion to Twelve South is to improve on the QA and perhaps test the fit of the top and bottom pieces before packaging.

I've got it under a Thunderbolt display, which enables me to slightly elevate the screen in a way that you can't with the stock foot from Apple. Plus, I'm able to keep my keys, iPhone, charging cables, etc. behind the mesh gate instead of strewn all over my desk. Great for those looking to keep a tidy work area!

It went together very easily. My only issue is the height. I would have liked it taller and a door that drops down in the front. Or maybe a tray that slides out to put my phone on. Otherwise it's very nice.

Then, they started to When I first saw these advertised, I thought "what a rip off, $80 for a metal box to sit your computer on?" Then, they started to look a bit useful. I had the money, so I ordered one for my late 2012 27" iMac. I absolutely love it. It completely hides my LightScribe DVD burner and a powered USB hub. It really provides a very nice clutter-free desktop. It raises the screen height to a nice level even with the 27" display, and that further clears even more desktop space. Nice piece. Worth the money.
