The USB-C Clamp Hub by Satechi is a six-port hub that allows access to USB-A ports from the front of your 24-inch iMac.

The latest hub from Satechi is designed exclusively for the 24-inch iMac. It adds six easy-access ports to the front of the iMac with a simple silver-aluminum finish.

The USB-C Clamp Hub fastens to the bottom of the iMac using an adjustable knob. A short integrated USB-C cable connects the hub via one of the available ports.

Once attached, the hub places five ports within easy reach of the user. The ports include three USB-A ports, a USB-C port, and micro/SD card reader slots.

All USB ports offer up to 5Gbps data transfer speeds but don't support video pass-through or charging. The USB-A ports also cannot be used with external drives like the Super Drive.

The USB-C Clamp Hub has a silver-aluminum finish, but Satechi says its design should maintain the aesthetic of any 24-inch iMac. Since older iMacs are thicker with a curved chassis, the clamp will only work with the latest model.

Order the USB-C Clamp Hub for $54.99 from Satechi and it will ship in mid-September. The discount code IMAC15 gives 15% off of the retail price.
