Product Description

Henge Docks' Clique smartly unites Apple's Wireless Keyboard and Magic Trackpad into a single convenient unit. Clique's full tray design allows the Magic Trackpad to retain full functionality on your desk and in your lap, and with Clique's external power buttons there is no need to remove the keyboard or trackpad to access their power switches. Clique's minimalist form gives the combined Wireless Keyboard and Magic Trackpad the factory-direct look and feel of a single device. About Henge Docks Henge Docks, LLC created the first line of truly comprehensive docking stations for Apple's current crop of notebook computers. They are based in Arlington, Virginia just outside of Washington, DC and feature a continually expanding portfolio of computing accessories. The roots of Henge Docks, LLC sounds a bit like the opener for an off-color joke, "A future product designer, future lawyer and future physics teacher all meet on a playground in the 3rd grade...". Well, twenty-some-odd-years later those kids reunited, coming from all over the United States, to form a company with goal of turning a few pages of product drawings into a full line of innovative products. Matt, the product designer, developed prototypes and built webpages. Ben, the lawyer, filed patents and wrote contracts. Alex, the physics teacher, negotiated with suppliers and developed financial projections. In a little over a year they had created, not just a business, but something they could show the world with a sense of pride.

I'm using the Clique to consolidate the keyboard and the trackpad for my HTPC and it works really well.

Unfortunately, looks are not able to overcome this design flaw and I will be returning said item unless I can get a major assist from the good people at Henge Docks.

If you choose to keep the product and do what I did, I do not recommend using power tools such as the Dremel.

I got the Clique Apple Wireless Keyboard and TrackPad dock tray for Christmas. I was thrilled. Unfortunately the fabrication tolerances for the TrackPad portion of the tray are just not correct or the design erred on the too tight end of the specification. Like others on here, my trackpad had just enough space to click once or twice in the space provided by the tray and would jam in the down (clicked) position. I use the tap to click feature anyway so no problem there. There is no really good substitute for ACTUAL clicking when it comes to dragging. The double-tap and hold feature takes a lot of coordination and it is pretty useless.

I was so disappointed I was about to return it. The issue was clearly a 'clearance' issue inside the tray along the bottom edge of the tray on the TrackPad side. So I was confident I could fix it. I just took out my exacto knife and carefully trimmed plastic away inside the tray until the TrackPad had the space to click and return to the non-clicked position. It took a few trims and tries but it works every time now and you would have to look very close to see the trim work.

I'm NOT saying this makes the accessory acceptable. It should not be up to the customer to modify a product that should work out of the box. Had they put more time into testing and had tighter controls on manufacturing with maybe a less tight fix for the TrackPad it would be an awesome product. For now it is just acceptable if you want to go to the effort to make it work.

Hope this helps some of you that kept the product.

So maybe the designers over at Henge Docks need to enlighten me, but I bought 2 of these thinking they would be great to keep my magic trackpad and keyboard together, what I got did not live up to expectations. I say this with sadness in my heart because I was really hoping that this was the solution I was looking for. I had plans to be able to sit on my couch and use my flat screen with my MBP.

Let me explain...

The idea is a great one, but the problem is the click functionality of the Magic trackpad base, it does not work when sitting in the Clique. Or rather it works once and then is stuck in that position. Maybe I am missing something, like a set of instructions that address this issue, but sadly there were none in the wonderful packaging that this item came in.

Unfortunately, looks are not able to overcome this design flaw and I will be returning said item unless I can get a major assist from the good people at Henge Docks.

Changing to the tap function is not useful as the other functions change and dragging and dropping is easiest with the click feature of the trackpad. Love the trackpad the way it is, why should I change my habits to conform to a poorly designed product.... Work-arounds are not what most people are looking for, and being up front would hurt sales. This is not an expensive item and most people will not return because it is inconvenient. I don't have a vendetta against the Henge Docks, but I do read reviews when shopping and like them to be accurate.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT based on the review of someone that works for the company with cheery things to say about everything the company does, especially when the reviewer discredits the other reviewers that have had real experiences that were less than rosy.

Just keeping things real, I wanted to love this product but it did not live up to expectations

The Henge Dock I received has the same problem as many other reviews.

When the trackpad is inserted, it will get stuck in the down-clicked state, which means you have to remove it and put it back in. It will work for about 8 clicks before getting stuck again.

When I finally broke down and e-mailed support, they e-mailed me a PDF document advising me to rub the inside edges of the trackpad tray with a hard tool. The idea is that the sloppy mold lines left on the plastic will be removed or rubbed down, preventing the trackpad from getting trapped. This works to a degree, but not very well.

I really need to bust out my dremel and remove the extra plastic if I want to continue using it. Which is pretty crazy.

Henge Docks is very aware of this issue, so I'm really surprised that they're not taking steps to ensure new Cliques aren't shipping to customers in this condition.

I'm not sure if it's the poor fit, or another issue entirely, but my trackpad will also randomly lose its bluetooth connection to my computer while in the Clique, and only while it's in the Clique. I've checked to make sure the battery port is screwed all the way shut, but I suspect the plastic that contacts the trackpad power button is also made with a poor tolerance, and it's holding the power button in enough to cause it to turn on and off while I type or use the trackpad.

As it ships, the Clique is worse than disappointing, it makes using your trackpad unreliable or at worst impossible. There's no reason to ship them to customers with these defects.

The Apple trackpad gets jammed immediately and is no longer able to click. To work around this defect you have to enable "Tap to click". When Tap to click is enabled then the "Swipe between full-screen apps" feature requires four fingers instead of three. Very disappointed.
