    It's a simple bracket that lets you mount/hang your Mac Pro beneath your desk.

    Is it worth it? Any hang-ups? Fears? Does a heavy Mac Pro hanging from your desk impact the desk's structural integrity in any way? I'd like to get my MP off my desk to reclaim some real-estate, but I don't want to put it on my floor.

    Any pictures? The only pictures I can find are either of the bracket alone, or manufacturer provided pics from the rear; displaying cable route and security feature.

    I would expect the only real worry would be the quality and thickness of the wood you're screwing the bracket into to ensure it can safely hold the weight of the Mac Pro.

    Go to a big hardware store/depot. You'll probably find everything you need for less than $20, and it will be at least as resistant, provided you do it well. Mac Pros have the ideal shape to be hanged. A couple of hooks (like those used to hang tools on them) will do the trick.

    Have your machine make a wolf sound.

    They won't go near it.

    Ha! I was very nearly considering a USB motion sensor, though I couldn't find one that could trigger a sound file.

    EDIT: speak of the devil. I just wish I could make it play through the front speaker though.
