I can't really give a bad review to this item because it does exactly what it claims, but when I started setting it up, I immediately felt very dumb. Attaching the Wii sensor bar to the Kinect sensor with these brackets results in a very awkward looking Frankenstein's monster of a device. (Also, neither part fits particularly tightly, so things will get knocked out of symmetry with the slightest bump.)

It took me all of 5 seconds to realize that the Wii sensor bar can easily (more neatly, and more attractively) be attached to the top of the Kinect sensor with some lightweight mounting tape. So, unless you're utterly horrified at the thought of applying easily removable adhesive to your Kinect sensor, just go that route.

When I received this product, it was simply two plastic pieces/brackets wrapped in clear plastic paper and instructions the size of a large post-it note. I wasnt really sure what to make of it and was worried I got picked off by a BS product line.

Each plastic bracket has two holes (one the size of the kinect and another the size of the wii sensor). If installed correctly, the Wii sensor will sit atop the kinect via the bracket.

During the installation, it didnt seem like the Kinect sensor actually fit, which would have rendered the product useless. It did not slide on the Kinect easily like it seemed like it should. After actually removing the Kinect from its mount, I was able to successfully slide the bracket onto it, although again, it should have been easier. The Wii sensor slid on quite easily as it should.

The only issue I have is the placement of the brackets versus the actual sensors of each device. The way the Kinect is designed, its not one bracket is going to be to much closer to the device's edge than the other.

All in all, the product works like it should and honestly, its saved me a bunch of space and simplified having two different gaming systems that use motion sensors. For that alone, its worth the money.

The brackets I received are hard plastic with sharp edges, not the soft, flexible material described here. Beware, this item will likely damage your Kinect sensor. I could not find a way to contact the seller directly so I'm going through Amazon to arrange a refund. I won't be using this bracket.

Having moved my Kinect into the spare room, I realized I needed to find a solution to combining the space above my tv set where the stock wii sensor bar already resided without spending a fortune and then, there it was. Behold, a cheap set of plastic grid that allows the sensor bar to piggyback on top of the Kinect.

The buying process was rough, I ended up having to return the first product since it was sealed at the factory with only a single plastic piece instead of the pair that was needed. I shipped that back (thanks Amazon for your hassle-free return policy!) and within a few days I got my full pair in the mail as the way it should have been.

Looking at the product, I was very skeptical, and not because from the reality of just how cheap the product was--that I expected--but by exactly how little *give* the plastic forms had. Fitting the plastic grid I chose over the left-side of the Kinect was a test of faith; I really had to cram it on. Oddly enough though, the remaining grid slid onto the right-side requiring the exact opposite amount of trust and with absolutely no effort which isn't to say it was so loose it was falling off, however. There's definitely a lack of conformity in the manufacturing somewhere, but regardless they both fit, the Wii sensor bar fits and these plastic brackets do the job of hosting my wayward hardware accessories without spending twenty or thirty dollars like the other options out there.

I'm giving this product four stars, mostly due to the cost and simplicity yet one star shy of "excellent" due to the lapse in quality control (judging from an utter disaster of a processing flub at the factory for the first order, and then the seemingly consistent non-conformity for these across the board).

As others have pointed out. I mustve been tired when I impulse added XBox accessories from my "save" list to make sure I had everything I need to complete the kids' christmas gift. The pictures were clearly there. no misconceptions as to what you're buying. But for 5$, cut some velcro, Scotch/3M fasteners and apply as needed.

I had already had my Wii sensor discreetly mounted at a natural level right under the TV on the TV unit. another 5 seconds of thought and I shouldve realized I could just repeat that application on the Kinect and dont even have to add anything to the sensor.

Ultimately, for 5$, it's overpriced, and I left my wii sensor where it always was, and sat my Kinect on top of my TV unit since it could auto angle downwards. I'd rather not have my wii sensor up there with it, awkwardly having the player point upwards above the TV to control anything.

Alternatives you may already have at home, far less bulky, seamlessly as one.
All you need is to cut 4 very small pieces, 2 on the wii, 2 on the kinect.

I recently got the Kinect for the XBOX 360, so I was looking to tidy things up a bit. With the help of a 3rd-party mounting clip, my Kinect had displaced my Wii sensor bar, so this bracket seemed like the perfect solution to that. Ultimately, it does the job and I can't really complain, but what you get feels much cheaper than the description implies. You basically just get two molded pieces of plastic that you can insert the Kinect and Wii sensor bar into, although that's pretty much what's shown. The disappointment comes in when you realize that they're made from pretty hard plastic and aren't "soft" as indicated. I can't really see it damaging the Kinect's finish too terribly, if at all.

I'm not overly excited about this Kinect bracket, but I can't really say it's a bad product either. It does what it says it will do and doesn't cost very much, which is a big plus that it does have going for it. My setup is better with it, so I can't say that I regret purchasing it.

These two brackets slide over both your Kinect sensor and your Wii sensor bar. I'm not particularly happy with the device, but it does work and it's certainly better than nothing.

The brackets are cheap plastic and mine have visible manufacturing artifacts (circular imperfections from the molding process). They are not very tight around either the Kinect sensor or the Wii sensor bar and I think a stiff breeze would blow them out of place. It also leaves the Wii sensor bar protruding out over and in front of the Kinect sensor and I wish it was simply flush. My Kinect sensor has oriented itself at a relatively steep downward angle (due to being on top of a 60" LCD TV) and that makes this setup look a little funny to me.

I paired this with Kinect TV Mount Clip and it's very nice to have both of these sensors centered on top of the TV and out of the way.

First off, I give the device five stars. This is not a game, so I'm not sure why Amazon is asking me to rate it as a game. But, whatever. This is a good device that does what it's meant to do. My only problem was that I forgot that I don't use the wired sensor that comes with the Wii but a wireless one which is bigger than the the wired sensor. Therefore, the Kinect part fits (quite tightly I might add, and it took a few tries for me to figure out which way the brackets go on) and what I did was take some twist ties and tie my wireless sensor to the top through the holes. So far that seems to work quite well, though I haven't used the Kinect yet in this set up so I'm not sure if the sensor may be too heavy for it. But this is a nice and clean way to have your Wii sensor bar on top of your Kinect and to eliminate clutter.

This thing does what it's supposed to do. I wish it fit on the Kinnect just a little bit tighter, but it's certainly not falling off. The Kinect can do it's little robot moving up and down, side to side thing and the wii bar doesn't nudge. Super simple to install. No instructions needed, although it does come with them. Just slip it on there.

One thing that I did want to clarify, since I couldn't find a review that said anything about it, this thing does work if your Kinect has a Zoom for Kinect. It fits just fine and doesn't interfere with any of the sensors.

All in all, good product, especially for the price.

I bought this to use in conjunction with my Kinect sensor. It is a very cheap way to have your Wii and Kinect sensor together. If you want a cheap option here it is. That being said, it doesn't lock the sensor into place or have a sturdy base.

As cheap as it feels, I havent had any issues with it. It holds the sensor into place fine.

I use it with this cheap Kinect holder and although in both cases nothing is tightly secure, I havent had any issues with it falling off or anything.
