When Selecting a Display Mount, there are a few questions that need to be answered.

Where is your mounting location?

Display mounts can typically be mounted on a wall, ceiling or desk.

What is the screen size of your display?

Make sure the display mount can accommodate the size of your flat-panel display.

What is the maximum weight necessary to mount your display?

Be sure the display mount safely and securely supports the weight of your display.

What kind of viewing adjustments do you need?

Decide if you need to tilt, swivel or rotate your display. Many display mounts adjust to optimize viewing angles, minimize glare, improve comfort and reduce fatigue.

Do you have enough clearance to mount your display?

Wall mounts require enough top clearance to attach the display mounting plate to the mount. Full-motion mounts require enough space for full movement of the arm.

What is your mounting surface?

Most display mounts include all the hardware required for installation on walls with timber or masonry construction, including wooden studs, cinder blocks, bricks and concrete. VESA®-compliant mounting hole patterns make it easy to match the pattern on your display.
