Mounting your monitor on a desk, wall, or ceiling may be easier than you think. Many monitor arms are adjustable and can be folded down when not needed, making them a great solution for limited space.
With a little know-how, mounting a monitor stand can be a breeze. let’s talk about how to mount the boom arm to the monitor and how to adjust the monitor step by step.
Mount Boom Arm
The boom arm mount is a device that allows you to mount microphones to your boom stand, camera, or tripod. It is mounted directly to the boom stand or tripod using a simple screw and has 2 pairs of threaded holes. It can be used with a wide range of microphone sizes, including omnidirectional, cardioid, and supercardioid. The boom arm mount is lightweight and is suited for all professional studios.
The boom arm on a boom mic is a fairly complex piece of equipment, and to mount it to the mic, you’ll first have to understand how it works. The boom arm is a metal tube that sits at the top of a boom mic. It’s powered by the included AC adapter, and inside the arm is a spring that triggers the arm to extend out.
The mic is held in place by an internal magnet, and the arm has a slot that slides over the magnet. To attach the boom arm to the mic, you’ll need a mounting plate. The plate has a threaded hole at the top, and your mounting screws will fit into the hole; this is the part you’ll mount the mic to.
How to mount Boom Arm to monitor stand
First, it’s important to note that mounting the mount to the monitor stand is different from mounting the monitor to the mount. First, since it might require a 1/4”-20 screw, you may or may not already have one. Second, the mount is designed to fit any VESA monitor mount interface.
So, if you are a user of a monitor stand that already has a VESA mount, all you have to do is mount the mount on the monitor stand and secure the monitor to the mount. If you have an older monitor and need a VESA mount, you can buy a VESA mount separately.
Third, there are about 4 mounting holes on the mount, so it’s up to you to choose which hole is closest to the center point of the monitor stand. Fourth, each hole can mount the mount at a slight angle, so you can select which hole is most comfortable for you.
Adjust the monitor to the position you want
You can have your computer monitor in the perfect position, but if your monitor is mounted to the wall, you may find that you’re looking right at the screen, which for some can be uncomfortable. Most monitors come with a VESA mount that lets you mount them on a wall.
Do you want the placement of the screen to be different? Our monitor arm has a quick release to adjust the screen height. The quick-release lever is located in the bottom-front corner of the monitor arm. A pull-up on the lever right side loosens the monitor arm.
Pull the lever up and it releases from the base. Adjust the monitor arm to the height you desire. Push the lever firmly back into the base and the monitor arm locks in place.
