Give Your Echo Show A Lift

Are you looking for a way to get your new Amazon Echo Show off your counter or table? Perhaps you just can’t get your screened Alexa device high enough for your liking? Or maybe you want to free up some valuable space on your kitchen countertop?

Look no further, here are my top picks for the best wall mounts for Echo Show, organized by model:

BEST WALL MOUNTS FOR ECHO SHOW 5

ATOPHK Wall Mount Aluminum Swivel Stand

Simple, sleek and effective, if you’re looking for a solid classic wall mount – then this is probably the best option for you. It’s sturdy, can rotate, can tilt up and down, and will definitely stay in place. Unfortunately, it’s more expensive than the rest of the options, but it’s still my choice for a mount. As a bonus, it looks like one of those sci-fi computers that slides out of the wall, if you’re into that jazz. (I certainly am.)

Pros:

  • Connects to the Show with strong magnets
  • Can rotate 270 degrees
  • Can tilt vertically
  • Made of quality die-cast aluminum

Cons:

  • More expensive than some of the other options
  • Requires installation into the wall

Mount Genie Simple Built-in Show 5 Wall Mount

To be completely honest, I was drawn to this mount simply from the name itself. Like that 80s song by Christina Aguilera, adding “Genie” to the title of anything just makes it seem more interesting.

Like Christina, this option is certainly interesting! Totally unique in its style, this wall mount is actually installed directly into your wall. It looks very chic on the wall—especially near light switches, thermostats, or wall phones. This is an ideal pick for the DIYers of you out there!

Pros:

  • Sits flush with the wall
  • Designed for easy access to buttons
  • Doesn’t muffle sound quality at all

Cons:

  • Can’t rotate (not that you would really need it to)
  • Requires some assembly and wiring configuration

Here’s another helpful review from Tech with Brett:


Socket Shelf 8 Port Surge Protector Wall Outlet

best wall mounts for echo showWhile this wasn’t designed for the Echo Show specifically, it is certainly a nice option for it! This little buddy plugs into your wall outlet and doubles as both a surge protector with six outlet spots as well as a little shelf. If you have a good outlet spot to put it on, the shelf is a cute option and is a good fit for the Show 5, so it’ll sit nicely on it, although you won’t really be able to angle the Echo Show as much as with some of the other options here.

Pros:

  • Doubles as a surge protector with 6 outlets!
  • No installation or screws at all
  • Takes up very little space
  • Size is a good fit for the Echo Show 5

Cons:

  • Can’t position the show much on the shelf
  • More expensive than other options
  • Need to have a convenient outlet spot for your shelf

The Easy Outlet Shelf for Show 5

One of the most annoying parts of technology for me (and a lot of other people, I’m told) are the wires. It’s just bothersome to have wires going every which way, so these outlet shelves with wire management are definitely a coup! This Easy Outlet Shelf specifically is designed to completely hide the wire as it wraps inside the shelf itself – plus it looks like a little side table for your Show. This option is “Amazon’s Choice” for a mount for the Show 5, although there have been a couple of complaints from customers about the shelf’s durability. It’s also really cheap; making it one of the best wall mounts for Echo Show on a budget.

Pros:

  • Designed to hire pesky wires from sight
  • Can rotate
  • Designed to be placed under cabinets or over countertops
  • Very little installation required – just sits behind outlet
  • Super inexpensive

Cons:

  • Needs to have a convenient outlet spot
  • Can rattle a bit when playing music

BEST WALL MOUNTS FOR ECHO SHOW 8

ATOPHK Echo Show 8 Wall Mount Aluminum Swivel Stand

Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of options for the Amazon Echo Show 8 just yet. Even this mount was only really just updated to also include the Show 8. Have no fear however; this mount is a very solid option. In fact, it is the same mount as the first one I reviewed for the Show 5 —and it would be my top choice for Show 8 as well—at least for now.

Pros:

  • Connects to the Echo Show with strong magnets
  • Can rotate 270  degrees
  • Can tilt vertically
  • Made of Aluminum

Cons:

  • A bit more expensive than some options listed for other models

ECHOGEAR Steel Wall-Mounted AV Shelfbest echo show mount

While this is certainly less of a traditional mount than anything else on this list, it’s a very good option if you’re looking for a shelf for the Show 8. Since Show 8 is significantly bigger than the 5, it won’t fit any of the smaller, more compact shelves. While this shelf might be a bit too big for some (it is designed for cable boxes and game consoles) it’s still a very sleek and durable shelf. It will also fit great if you have a black interior design motif (like me).

Pros:

  • Very durable – up to 15 lbs
  • Sleek black modern design
  • Well designed and easy to follow installation manual
  • Extra space to angle or position the Echo Show

Cons:

  • Can’t rotate or position the shelf.
  • It will leave a lot of extra space on the shelf.

BEST WALL MOUNTS FOR ECHO SHOW 2nd GEN

ATOPHK Echo Show Wall Mount Aluminum Swivel Stand

There are two good options for actual wall mounts for the 2nd Generation Echo Show – this mount from ATOPHK, which is nearly identical in style to the same mounts they make for the Show 5 and Show 8 and the HumanCentric mount below. This mount is more popular on Amazon, and it is also my preferred choice, specifically for being more adjustable. It is worth noting that some customers have complained that the provided screws aren’t satisfactory however—so you might need to pay a visit to your local Home Depot.

Pros:

  • Brushed aluminum looks rad and will match your stainless appliances in your kitchen
  • Tilts 25° up or down
  • Rotates 270°
  • Sturdy aluminum design

Cons:

  • Customers noted a couple of complaints with screws, although complimented customer service with helping them through the install

HumanCentric Wall Mount for Amazon Echo Show 2nd Gen

The HumanCentric mount is the simpler of the two options for the 2nd Generation Echo Show, but it still satisfies most of the key aspects. It can rotate to adjust the angle (although the company doesn’t specify how much). It’s a simple installation, and it has a contoured design that keeps the stand out of the way. There is also an option for two separate colors – which is something that no other mount on this list can boast.

Pros:

  • Comes in black and white
  • Swivels
  • Designed for easier access to buttons and cables

Cons:

  • Can’t tilt up or down

BEST WALL MOUNTS FOR ECHO SHOW 1ST GEN

HumanCentric Wall Mount for Amazon Echo Show 1st Gen

Amazon’s top choice for a stand-in general for the 1st Generation Echo Show, the HumanCentric wall mount is a solid option – simple and secure. Although limited, the stand can rotate to adjust the angle. I personally think HumanCentric’s simple aesthetic fits very well with the Show as well.

Pros:

  • Simple, minimalist design
  • Best option if you have your heart set on a black mount
  • Easy to install
  • Echo Show slides easily into the bracket
  • Swivels

Cons:

  • Can’t tilt up or down
