Summary

Wall mount for Google Home Mini, with four mounting options: double sided tape, a single countersunk screw, two screws vertically, or two screens horizontally. Mount to a wall, mirror or any flat surface, then snap your Google Home Mini into it and plug in the USB power cord.

When mounted vertically, with the power cord at the bottom, the Google Home Mini is actually upside down, and the volume controls and LEDs will be reversed. To fix that, use the Google Home app, and enable "Reverse device controls" in Device Settings.

To mount with tape, cut a piece of double side tape almost as wide as the back plate, cut off two corners for a better fit, and stick it to the top of the back plate.

Update 4/3/2018: Updated for an improved look of the clips, and three versions, labeled v3:

  • Mini wall holder 0-v3.stl - no screw holes, ideal for use with double sided tape
  • Mini wall holder 6-v3.stl - with screw holes for smaller #6 screws
  • Mini wall holder 8-v3.stl - with screw holes for larger #8 screws

Post-Printing

Mount to wall with double sided tape or one or two countersunk screws.

How I Designed This

I used OpenScad to design this bracket. The shape of the Google Home Mini makes it difficult to hold it without making the bracket to intrusive. I tried a couple of iterations to get a good hold on the Mini.

Aloha!
That's a cool design!
I'd like to add a hanger for my bathroom rack to the mount.
First idea was to create my own mount for the GHM, but after I saw yours, I was thinking about a hanger with a back plate that would click into your screw holes (somehow like in the photo).
The only problem now is, that with the current design, the cable would go to the bottom of the hanger. Which is fine for a wall mount, but for me it's not so good.
So here's my request: could you design an "upside down" version of the holder where the screw mounts are rotated by 180 degrees?

Thanks!


Edit: Nevermind - I just printed my design and it's quite a tight fit... so it won't unlock even if it's upside down and gravity pulls on the wrong end :-)

Rack Hanger for GHM Holder by tilmansp

I've added two files with screw holes which let you mount the Google Home Mini with the USB cord coming out on top.

So cool! Thanks a lot!

Aloha

The license on this Thing marks it as "Creative Commons - Attribution". That license does not forbid commercial exploitation by third party !! I noticed that the same license applies to your remix.

One catch applies, though: "as long as it's correctly attributed to the designer" - which - in the ebay offer above - is not the case...

If people don't want their designs to be "commercially exploited" by other people, then they should chose their license accordingly: there are in fact many more CC licenses that will protect from that kind of wrongdoing.

Ah, and BTW: I'm not affiliated to the person selling it on ebay (.. or elsewhere).

Thanks for the note. At least it got modified a little, adding a few nail and screw holes. But 40 Australian dollars?

I'm actually the one who added those nail and screw holes, they appear to be using my remix. I didn't mind as all I did was add some holes to your design, but I thought you should know.

Hi. Is this modeled in mm, cm, or inches.

It seems like the Thing files need updating, the previously shown models are no longer available. Thank you.

Which file are you looking for? I still see one .stl file. I removed the other two versions because of concerns that the grip of the fingers is too weak. The remaining versions is universal - you can either use screws or double sided tape, and has a thicker base which makes the fingers flex less.

Gotcha, I didn't think about just using the original with the screws with tape instead(pfft!), thank you for the info!

Great idea.

A quick tweek/suggestion. Instead of 4 standard holes like you have for screws, consider making one or all of them the kind that are pear shaped. The kind where the screw head can fit through the lower part of the whole, but no the top. That way you could just put one or two screws 90% into the wall, and then slide the GH Mini holder onto it.

Jesus Christ! It's grand! There is nothing wrong with the design. It's got multiple mounting options.

Thanks, I will consider that. I didn't go that route because the screws are easily accessible - just pop out the Google Home Mini.

Check out v2, now with slotted screw mounting holes (and a few other improvements).

6-way expansion outlet that's non-GFCI next to a water source? If this home-mini drops into your sink while you're washing your face and/or brushing your teeth you're absolute toast! Get rid of that fire hazard of a six-way and get a GFCI outlet in the wall!

Ugh... brilliant design, but terrible use-case. Please consider these poor VERY EDUCATED individuals who died without thinking of very basic precautions: https://goo.gl/CbSTuC

While they've ruled out the 3d printer & laser cutter (obviously), the couple still did not think about BASIC carbon monoxide protections in their home.

Great design though!

Thanks for your concerns, but they do not apply here. First, the outlets shown in that picture are GFCI protected - that is required by building code around here. GFCI protection comes in many forms, and in this case, all bathroom outlets are wired into a shared GFCI breaker.

Second, Google Home is a low voltage device, not powered directly by line voltage, so there's no danger of electrocution if you drop it into water. The GFCI protection wouldn't even trigger in that case, because there's no path for the outlet power through the water.

Yep - good you have a GFCI breaker, protects the entire circuit. However I don't think you understand enough about electricity. First of all, the Google Home is more than just a low voltage device. It contains an amp and a decent sized speaker. Regardless it's not the device itself that's the risk. Drop that into the sink and you're exposed to anything the Google Home is connected to (the wall outlet).

Finally, it's not voltage that kills you, it's the amperage. Anyone with any amount of knowledge in electricity and circuits knows this: https://www.physics.ohio-state.edu/~p616/safety/fatal_current.html

" While any amount of current over 10 milliamps (0.01 amp) is capable of producing painful to severe shock, currents between 100 and 200 mA (0.1 to 0.2 amp) are lethal."

Your average US household outlet is between 15-20 amps... well more than 0.1

The GFCI breaker will trigger on "Amperage". So he should be pretty safe as long as it's being tested regularly.

Hi, nice design!
Could you please include the OpenSCAD model? I want to tweak a couple of the screw mounting holes.
Thanks!
