Summary

Wall mount for Google Home Mini: Use a piece of double sided tape or 1 or 2 countersunk screws to mount this bracket to a wall, and then snap your Google Home Mini into it. If you put the power cord at the bottom, the volume controls will be reversed: touch on the left to increase the volume, and touch on the right to lower the volume.

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 12/2/2017: I removed the versions without the screw holes as they tended to flex too much due the the thinner back, and didn't hold the Mini as tightly.

Update 1/12/2018: Google now sells a wall mount, too: https://store.google.com/product/incipio_wall_mount

Mount to wall with double sided tape

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. The four clips are not equally spaced to avoid blocking the microphone mute switch.

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.

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

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

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