Your Google Wifi can be hidden or shown off with the right wall mount

by John_A

The Google Wifi isn’t a bad looking router (or three) on its own, and it’s pretty easy to stick it anywhere in your house without offending anyone. However, every home is different and you might want something a little more elegant and organized than just plonking a node down on a window sill.

Thanks to its popularity and the fact it’s a pretty simple shape, there are plenty of options out there for mounting the Google Wifi to a wall or even a ceiling. None are very expensive and there’s something out there to suit all tastes.

These are the best mounts for the Google Wifi!

Easy peasy

Wall Mount Holder for Google Wifi by Koroao

This mount makes it super easy to hang your router on a wall or ceiling, and you can still route in an Ethernet cable to hard-wire devices. The mount comes in a single-, two- or three-pack, and it includes screws for installation.

Power up

Dot Genie Google Wifi Outlet Holder

If you want your router flush with your power plug, this mount is for you. You can wrap and hide the power cable around the inside of the mount so it isn’t seen, and the weight of the router is easily supported by the power plug and your wall. Finally, there’s an opening at the bottom for plugging in an Ethernet cable.

Save space

ECHOGEAR Outlet Shelf

This product is great for your Google Wifi, but also for other small gadgets weighing less than ten pounds. There’s a small channel at the back of the shelf where you can route your power and Ethernet cables, and installing the shelf is as easy as unscrewing your existing wall plate and screwing on the new one.

Super minimal

Mrount Google Wifi Wall Mount

This may be the most minimal option of this list: you just screw the mount on the wall, and sort of drop the Google Wifi in. You also get a channel for routing the power cable, and enough clearance for Ethernet cables. The screws and drywall sockets you need are included, and the kit comes in single-, two- and three-packs.

In between

LykusSource Wall Mount Bracket

This is a middle step between the more minimal options and the full brackets. The mount attaches to your wall with four screws, and you can organize the power and Ethernet cables easily. Your router just rests on the shelf, so there’s nothing obstructing it. The kit comes in single-, two- and three-packs.

Super precise

Anco Precision Wall Mount

Another minimal option is this mount from Anco. Again, you screw the mount itself on the wall, then the router drops on top. There aren’t any cable management options on the mount itself, so this would be a better fit for some who can route power and Ethernet through their wall. This mount is available in a single-, two- and three-pack.

Totally secure

HumanCentric Google Wifi Mount

If you want your router to be as secure as it possibly can be, this mount is for you. Again, there aren’t any cable management options on the mount itself, so you’ll want to measure your cables to keep them from looking sloppy on your wall.

$10 at Amazon

All of these mounts would be great, but my personal favorite is the ECHOGEAR Outlet Shelf, since I could use that for another gadget if need be and it’s really easy to install.
