Mounting the C-7 Hub

My C-4 died, so I took advantage of the "upgrade to C-7" offer for subscribers to the extended warranty.

By the C-7 is missing a little something - there are no keyholes on the back of the case for mounting.

Looks like I must resort to Command-Strip velcro, or a ziptie something-something.

I use this one… :wink:

Sadly, the package did not include a 3-D printer, just a C-7, and a power supply. Not even a cable included.

Others have posted about this in the past, so a couple searches will probably find it. But I have seen posts where people have indeed used Command Strip like you mention, and Velcro (both successful). Or using 3D printed mounts such as the one @Carl mentioned or the ones I have created... Many options out there.

Here are a couple I found:

I went the 3M velco route on one of my hubs, I mounted it to the back of my entertainment center in my living room. It seems to be holding it fine.

Look below the cardboard.

There was no cardboard, no box, just a USPS small flat-rate box with a bubble-wrap bag inside, containing the two items. No problem, I have usb cables left over from the pre-USB-c days, but I found it funny.

Then you must not have bought it from Hubitat. Sounds like you got a used one.

No it was an upgrade replacement, direct from Hubitat, as my C4 died after just over a year in service. It may very well be used, I don't know... perhaps an open-box return, perhaps a "refurbished" unit.

I use 3m Command picture hanging strips,. Actually in my latest attempt to clean up my installation and cool my hubs a bit I have the hubs mounted with the strips to a laptop stand with 2 fans built in, and that mounted to the wall with the strips as well.
