    I have connected a OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock to a Thunderbolt 3 port using this adapter. The Belkin dock should also work.

    DisplayPort is not passed by this adapter, so your 27" LED Cinema Display won't work. A Thunderbolt Display should work though.

    To use a DisplayPort display, connect it directly to your Mac's Thunderbolt port (using a USB-C to mini DisplayPort cable).

  • I use it now for a few days.
    The only connection of the Belkin dock which is not working is the ethernet port.
    For the rest everything seen to be fine.

  • I have just used it for this setup, and yes, it appears to work with all the functions of the Belkin Thunderbolt 2 Express Dock. At first the HDMI output did not seem to be working, but after removing and replacing the cable a few times it suddenly jumped into life. When the specs say the adpater does not support Mini Display Port I think it refers to using that connector directly in the Thunderbolt 2 output of the adapter, rather than it not passing video signals at all.
