Of all the Amazon Echo devices, the Echo Dot is one of the most convenient voice assistants to have. This one is small and lightweight and is easily portable. However, this little doughnut-shaped product can be easily mistaken for a toy, especially by small children and toddlers.
Though it's a durable device, surely you wouldn't want to see it tossed around like a hockey puck. Hence, it only makes sense to mount it to walls and power sockets.
Wall mounts for Amazon Echo Dot devices not only reduce the chance of mishandling, but they also make the devices less susceptible to falls and drops.
Plus, the clever wire management makes sure that there are no messy wires on the floor (or by your prized coffee table). And well, you can easily retain space on your nightstand or your work desk with minimum effort.
Here are our top recommendations for the best Amazon Echo Dot wall mounts.

This small form factor means it will not stick out like a sore thumb.

Also, the clear design means it won't hinder the sound output. The installation process is simple and straightforward. Stick it to a clean surface with the aid of strong adhesive strips. Once done, don't put the speakers in immediately. Wait for at least an hour before you stick them in.

The fit is excellent, and the holder works as described. The good thing is that it can be mounted horizontally as well, especially if your power socket is in a tight space.
Even though this holder has a full cover, the sound output is not diminished in any way. Several users on Amazon have praised this holder for its ability to maintain the same sound quality. It has around 4.6-stars out of 5 on Amazon, with people praising it for its sound quality and Easy-to-use nature.

With my Echo Dot mounted securely, now I can rest assured.
