Mounting a non VESA monitor

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have an acer h236hl and was wondering if anyone knew how I could possibly mod it or buy a "VESA conversion kit" for it. Are non VESA mounts like these any good? -> https://pagetechnologysolutions.com/ShopMonitorArms.html?gclid=CLnd9afEq70CFdBcMgodmHsAyw

You are trying to mount a non-VESA monitor on a VESA mount?

No, from what I gather, he's trying to mount a non-VESA monitor. Period.

For reference, this is the rear of said monitor (according to the internets, at least):

drewtcjones: I have no experience with those adapters, but just from looking at the design, it should be a decent enough mount if your monitor fits the specs in their product description:

Secures monitors measuring 18.5” - 22.4” in length, 11.4” - 14.5” in height and up to 1” in width (outside casing)


Keep in mind that you won't be able to fit two monitors without gaps in between though, as that triangular arm clamps the two lower corners.

Too much is never enough.

                   I had the same problem a while ago, my solution was to get a regular vesa wall bracket I found a few that are like picture frame style where you have the screws on the wall and then slide the mount onto them, they have what looks like key holes on them.

, a square piece of 3mm aluminium, and some heavy duty double sided mounting tape. 

 

 First I mounted the 3mm ally to the vesa mount with some small nuts and bolts, then mounted the ally and bracket to the rear of the monitor with the tape.All that was left to do was leave it for a while to make sure, it was stuck solid then slide it onto the screws on the wall.

 

              It was / is that strong that a year later the 3mm ally is still stuck to the rear of the monitor , I've git it back on it's stand now, but their is no chance of removing it, last time I tried the plastic was coming away from the front bezel, so I gave up and just left it.
