After moving my monitors around on the office desk to make way for some new kit, I found that the best place would be if one of the screens was fitted flush against one of the brick walls in the office.
I made this VESA-compatible monitor mount from a single piece of aluminium plate after seeing the commercial ones have a much larger standoff than I needed.
Materials Used: 1 x 120 x 120 x 6mm aluminium plate
2 x 4" screws (countersunk)
2 x brown wall plugs
The plate was cut to be 120mm square and then four holes were drilled at 100mm centres.
In the middle of the plate, I milled two keyways to allow the plate to be fixed to the wall on two screws.
The photo above shows the plate when hanging on the wall on the two long screws.
Testing the mounting plate on the back of my 20-inch Lacie monitor
The monitor hanging on the wall with a 6mm gap between the wall and the back of the monitor.
I really like the simplicity of this idea. Seems like it would be a great mount, and I can't imagine how any other mount might be thinner. My only worry would be if it was bumped and came up off the screws. I wonder if there's a way to incorporate a lock.
Hi there Brian, came across your design. Would you be happy to make X2 of these please, how much?
For VESA 100, same spec as your ones with screw slot 2cm long as to prevent movement off wall if accidently nudged.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Kind Regards Richie.
