The Back Designs warehouse is located in an historic building on the Napa River waterfront within the old Mare Island Naval Complex in Vallejo, California. If this is your first visit to the island, allow some extra time to find your way around. Wayfinding here can be a challenge because many streets have no street signs, are not on maps, and look more like parking lots than streets.

Fittings and product pick-up by appointment only.

Warehouse Address

Our building address has changed. Same building ... new address. This is causing problems with GPS systems, online maps, and delivery services. To make matters worse, neither address is accurately located on many maps. If your delivery service or map does not recognize our new address, try our old address.

New address: OK for deliveries. Not recognized by some GPS and online map systems.
