There is no definitive answer to the question of what is the correct monitor position. However, there are a few general guidelines that can help you find a position that is comfortable and ergonomic for you.

  • Your monitor should be about an arm's length away from you. This will help prevent eye fatigue. 
  • The center of the screen should be directly in front of you, not off to the side. 
  • The angle of the screen should be about 15 degrees from horizontal, so that you are looking slightly down at it.

A monitor wall mount is a great way to save space on your desk and create a more ergonomic work environment. There are a few things to consider when choosing a monitor wall mount, such as the weight of your monitor and the VESA mounting standard.

When choosing a monitor wall mount, be sure to pick one that is rated for the weight of your particular monitor. Most mounts are able to support monitors up to 30 pounds, but some may be rated for heavier or lighter monitors. You'll also want to make sure that the mount you choose is compatible with the VESA mounting standard. This standard dictates the hole pattern on the back of your monitor that is used for attaching the mount.

 A monitor arm mount allows you to move your monitor closer or further away from you, as well as up and down. This can help you find the perfect viewing angle for your needs, and can also help reduce neck and back pain. Additionally, a monitor arm mount can free up desk space by moving the monitor off of the surface.

Monitor Arm Mount Installation

If you're looking for a way to improve your workspace, installing a monitor mount is a great option. There are two main ways to install a monitor mount: grommet and clamp.

Grommet mounts are installed by attaching the mount to the desk with screws. This option is best for permanent installations or if you plan on using heavier monitors. Clamp mounts attach to the desk with a clamp, which makes them easier to install and remove. This option is ideal for temporary setups or if you plan on using lighter monitors.

Both grommet and clamp mounts have their own benefits, so it's important to choose the right option for your needs. If you're not sure which method to use, consult TecnoTools customer service for technical advice.

Ceiling mounts are not easy to install and require professional installation. The monitor will be attached to the mount through the VESA standard pattern, just like the other mounts. However, the ceiling must be sturdy enough to hold the weight of the mount and monitor.
