I bought a Fire 8 HD tablet on prime day and am going to wall mount it with Actiontiles. I’ve been searching for a nice, reasonable wall mount and came across this one on the Smartthings Forum for a Fire 7…I contacted the guy making it and he agreed to make a run for the Fire 8s if there was interest of at least 20 people. This is what he said regarding the cost:

~$30 + flat rate shipping via USPS printed in standard PLA. We could offer some other filaments but it would be at a higher cost. I would need to complete design though before I give any additional options.

Anyone interested?

Link to Fire 7 version…

You will likely get a lot of interest on the SmartThings Users Group on Facebook, unless already posted there?

The biggest concern with Fire Tablets at this time is that they are not currently “root-able” and even the non-special offers version can’t bypass lock screen…?

Interested

I’m interested too — I chatted with Mike (Mike@dipsmith.co) — the nice gentleman who created the sleek wall mount for the 7inch Fire. He said if we can come up with at least 25 orders for the new Fire HD 8 tablet, he’ll make the wall mount for us.

Would there be enough interest to secure 25 orders upfront? I’m guessing the cost will be ~$25-30 plus shipping.

I am very interested in this for my HD 8 too.

I’ve been using Dockem Koala wall mounts (that I originally used with an iPad Mini) http://www.dockem.com/Koala-iPad-Wall-Mount-p/20006-ko-adh.htm

Learning to use Fusion360 (CAD program). I’ve been working on a in-wall mount for the 7" tablet. If someone would send me the dimensions for the 8" I wouldn’t mind designing and printing one. The rough design I have is for 1/2" drywall. I need to make the face plate a little thinner and add a hole for the camera.
Suggestion appreciated.

Were you ever able to make one of these for the Fire 8 HD? I am looking for something similar to this:
