Internal Port Alignment Notice

Proper Internal Port Alignment
Example of Internal Port Misalignment

Mini DisplayPort
USB
Apple’s line of MacBook computers are designed with ports
positioned behind voids in the outer case of the computer for
durability and aesthetic purposes. The ports are mounted inside
of the case and can become misaligned to their corresponding
voids through damage during use or manufacturing variances.
While rare, major internal misalignment of the MacBook’s ports
can cause the connections to bind when used with a Henge
Dock, leading to further alignment issues or damage. Henge
Docks recommends that users repair and resolve any internal port
alignment issues before attempting to setup their Henge Dock.
!
Do not install Ethernet cable heads fitted with a
locking tab into the dock. Use only the tabless
head of the included Ethernet cable. Installing
a cable head with a locking tab into the dock
X
could result in port damage.
!
All cable heads installed into this Henge Docks
unit will be marked by the set screw during
installation, leaving a light cosmetic indentation
on the surface of the connector.
!
Make sure your grip on the computer is secure
before docking and undocking. Dropping the
MacBook can damage the ports and dock
connectors. Never force the computer onto the
dock.
!
Install only original Henge Docks and Apple
sourced accessories into the dock body.
Third party cables and accessories may not
fit properly in the dock, possibly leading to
damaged ports.
!
A
Select the correct MagSafe
Adapter Tool for your type of
power supply. Square style
MagSafe connectors use style
A. Cylindrical style MagSafe
connectors included with
current MacBooks use style B.
MagSafe connectors included
with Apple Cinema Displays use
style C.
B
Clip the selected MagSafe
Adapter Tool around the
MagSafe connector head as
shown.
Place the MacBook into the
empty dock, port side facing
C
down.
While seated, carefully pick
up the dock and MacBook as
one unit and flip them over
into your lap. The ports on the
computer should be visible
through the bottom of the dock
and lined up with their corresponding voids in the dock.
D
E
With the computer and dock
inverted, select the MagSafe
connector and the Mini Display
Port plug. Feed both through
the corresponding voids in the
dock, plugging them directly
into the computer.
F
To ensure proper port alignment
all users must install at least
one included USB cable into
the dock even if no peripherals
will be attached.
Henge Docks recommends that
15-inch and 17-inch MacBook
Pro users also install the Line
In, Line Out or both Audio
Cables to prevent port binding.
Select and install the other
desired connectors in the
G
same manner.
If installing the Ethernet cable,
locate the tabless end of the
cable for the setup process.
Using the included hex key,
insert and carefully tighten a
setscrew into each port being
installed. Very little effort is
required to secure the cable
head.
Over-tightening the setscrew
could damage the connector and cause port alignment
issues.
H
I
Carefully flip the computer and
dock back over, placing the
unit on a stable, flat surface.
Gather the exiting cables into
the channel under the dock.
J
When using an Apple Mini
DisplayPort Adapter for an external display, route the cable
as shown. All Mini DisplayPort
Adapters made by Henge
Docks may simply be routed
- OR -
out the rear of the dock.
To undock the computer, place
one hand flat on the wing and
K
grasp the upper end of the
computer securely with the other
hand. Firmly pull the computer
vertically to disconnect the ports,
then remove the computer from
the dock with both hands.
Never walk or rock the MacBook
out of the dock!
To place the computer in the
dock, gently lower the computer
vertically onto the connections.
No downward force is necessary.
The weight of the computer will
make all of the connections.
Dropping, forcing, walking or
wobbling the computer into the
dock could result in damage to
the ports.
L
M
Docking the computer should
be effortless. If any resistance
is encountered remove and
reinstall any connections that
may be binding by repeating
steps D through H.
Congratulations, your Henge
Docks setup is complete!
Trouble Shooting Guide
For all sleep/wake issues All MacBook computers must be connected to a power source,
external display, external keyboard and mouse to run in the closed
position. Most sleep to wake issues can be resolved by simply
repositioning the MagSafe connector in the dock before waking the
computer.
If the problem persists remove all of the connections from the dock
and reconnect them to the computer in the same configuration,
without the dock. With the MacBook still closed, attempt to wake
the computer again. If the computer wakes and runs one or more
connections was not properly seated in the dock.
If the computer will still not wake properly, remove the cables
supplied by Henge Docks and connect the peripherals directly to
computer. If the MacBook still fails to wake the issue is independent
of the docking system, seek service help for your computer.
Mini DisplayPort adapter positioning Due to the short length of the Apple Mini DisplayPort adapters the
female end must be placed under the dock body with limited space.
The best solution is to purchase the dock specific Mini DisplayPort
adapter from Henge Docks, however Apple Adapters can be used.
Position the adapter toward the top of the cutout at the rear of the
dock and route the surrounding cables under the adapter (as shown
in Step F). The cables may spring back slightly after installation, but
they will relax over time.
!
Do not over-tighten the setscrews. Permanent
connector damage can result from overtightening. Very little pressure is required to hold
the cable heads into the docking station.
