First of all, deciding how many monitors you plan to use. For many office workers, a single monitor is sufficient, while others opt for multi-monitor workstations. No matter single or multi monitors, you need to figure out the dimension and weight of each, as well as checking the VESA compatibility -- most monitors will use either 75mm x 75mm or 100mm x 100mm VESA plates. If not, the monitor adapter kit can allow your non-VESA monitor to be mounted on almost any ergonomic monitor arms.


Secondly, there are a variety of monitor arm mounting options, like clamp mount, grommet mount, freestanding desk mount, and wall mount, thus, you need to figure out your installation ways before choosing the proper monitor arm. Each of TecnoTool's monitor arm offers one or two of the four mounting options. Among them, the clamp mount is the most common type and is suitable for most desks and monitors. With freestanding desk mount, you don't need to drill holes into desks or countertops. And as the name suggests, the wall mount is the perfect solution for glass surface and building wall-mounted workstations. Each of them is sturdy and stable that you don't have to worry about tipping over or falling down.

Last but not least, determining what adjustment functions you want from your monitor arm. TeecnoTool's monitor arms feature different specifications of adjustment for height, tilt, swivel, rotation and distance of arm extend. Of which, height adjustment is the most complicated one that can be operated by different methods -- regular adjustment, mechanical spring, and gas spring. The gas spring perfectly counterbalances the weight of your monitor for smooth and accurate adjustment, while the mechanical spring is more environment-friendly with longer service life, and the regular arm offers a more affordable price. In addition to the basic adjustment features, some special functions are also provided for better user experience, like USB port, cable management, mic/headphone port and tool holder, etc.
