BackPack is the perfect place to park portable hard drives, hubs or other USB peripherals you want to hide, but need easy access to.

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 can be arranged in different formations to accommodate a wide range of vertical devices. The vertical support pegs can be used to safely and securely prop up hard drives, store a MacBook or hold 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 BackPack also includes a silicone landing pad providing even more protection for your devices.

Backpack Review

This is an awesome product which saves space and neatly allows me to store my hard drive behind my IMac. The super large tray seems strong and is nice looking matching the architecture of my computer. A must have for computer operators to keep their areas looking clean and neat.
