I wanted a simple wall mount for the Mini which wouldn't disturb it's design or features although I have ignored the mute switch as I find it being quite unnecessary. Its mounted with two regular screws to the wall and uses gravity to encase the Mini within it. The design allows the charger to be plugged in upwards or downwards. It can most likely also be mounted to a ceiling but I haven't tried this.
The mounting procedure are as follows:
Use a level and draw a horizontal line on the wall. Now make a short vertical line for the first screw, then use a ruler and put a second vertical line 24 millimetres from the first vertical line left or right on the horizontal line. You will find these intructions on the design itself as well. Now place the first piece with the slotted holes over its intersection and screw the first screw in until the screw head is seated. The mount should not be able to wiggle against the wall but you also should be able to easily slide the screw in the slot. Repeat for the second piece. This step is optional but recommended, you can cut a sponge material (Dimensions ~Diameter:60mm ~Height: 5mm) to shape so the Mini will resonate less and also pick up less resonation from other speakers - This will also ensure the Home Mini doesn't move as you press it. You may now slide the two pieces so that there is a gap between them, insert the charging cable of the Home Mini first and then place the Home Mini itself in the casing. Now just slide the mount down to secure it in place. If you are mounting this to a ceiling, be sure to tighten the screws more than usual.
