Little shelf that's out of sight, but not out of reach.
BackPack is a sleek, sturdy shelf designed exclusively for your iMac or Apple Display. This gorgeous slice of steel makes a perfect perch for hard drives, USB peripherals or business cards. Included vertical support pegs prop up tall drives, Time Capsule or even your MacBook Air. BackPack hangs on the back (or front) of your iMac using two clips and gravity. Built-in cable management rails hold your power cords in place for grab-and-go convenience. BackPack is here to help you create the minimalist zen-like workspace your Mac was made for.
Hangs on the front or back of Mac.
Hang BackPack on the back of your Mac for taller peripherals or to dress up your workspace with trophies or Transformers. Attach this cool little shelf to the front of your Apple display and stash your iPhone, wallet and keys or mini hard drive up and off of your desk.
VIP parking for your gadgets and gear.
BackPack is the perfect place to park portable hard drives, hubs or other USB peripherals you want to hide, but need easy access to. Built-in cable management rails on each side of BackPack keep your cables in place. No more watching your power cable slip to the floor when you unplug. You can even tie the extra length of cable to the BackPack rails to keep things super tidy. When you bring your hard drive back to your Mac, your cables are ready and waiting.

Tall is no problem for this small shelf.
BackPack includes four vertical support pegs that hold vertical hard drives in place. The vertical support pegs can also be used to safely and securely prop up Time Capsule, Airport Extreme, MacBook Air or any other device that weighs up to 3.5 pounds. Coated with soft silicone, the support pegs won’t leave any marks on your gear and can be arranged in different formations to accommodate a wide range of devices.

Uses gravity to hang tight.
BackPack hangs on the front or back of the L-shaped desk stand on iMacs and Apple Displays, using gravity and two simple, adjustable clips. The adjustable clips let you position the shelves at the perfect height without a screw ever touching your iMac. Because the BackPack uses gravity to stay in place, it will not leave any scratches or marks on your machine.
Room for two on your Mac.
Since BackPack is height-adjustable, you can hang two shelves on one Mac. Hang one low for a backup hard drive and one high for taller gadgets or office toys. Or imagine this killer setup: a MacBook Air resting on a BackPack on the back of your Thunderbolt Display and a MacBook Air SuperDrive parked on a second BackPack in front. The choice of what to display and store on your BackPack is half the fun of owning one.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does the BackPack work with the new iMacs and Apple Thunderbolt Displays?
BackPack works on the front or back of any iMac or Apple Display with an L-shaped stand. The 21.5" iMac uses the included #3 Fit Insert. The 27" iMac and Apple Thunderbolt Display both use the included #4 Fit Insert.
Does the shelf screw into my iMac Stand? Will it scratch it?
No. The clips, when tightened, are a fixed width apart. The BackPack shelf is then held onto the iMac stand with gravity! The only thing that actually touches the stand is the non-scratch, plastic Fit Inserts.
Can I use BackPack 2 for holding my MacBook Pro on the back of my iMac/Apple Display?
No. BackPack 2 has a weight limit of 3.5 pounds, which is perfect for a MacBook Air (2.96 pounds) or Mac Mini (2.7 pounds), but not MacBook Pro (which starts at 4.46 pounds)
Is there a weight limit to storage in the BackPack?
Yes. Because you can adjust the height position of the BackPack, you can also install two (or more). Place one lower for hard drives and hubs, then locate a second BackPack higher for a display shelf or an iPod charging pad. Or hang one on the front of your iMac and one on the back. When it comes to out-of-sight storage for your iMac, two is definitely better than one.
Isn’t Time Capsule too large for the BackPack shelf?
Positioned flat, Time Capsule or a Mac Mini would be too large for BackPack, however, the four included vertical support pegs let you safely and securely prop up Time Capsule, a Mac Mini or any other hard drive in a vertical position.
