Setting Up a Dual Monitor Arm: A Simple Step-by-Step Guide

Having two screens is becoming increasingly popular as people need to multitask more and more in their daily lives. Whether you are a video editor, programmer, or entrepreneur, having two monitors can help you get the job done more quickly and efficiently. That’s where dual monitor arms come in. With one of these arms, you can easily switch between two screens more easily and conveniently.

Tools You Will Need

Before you begin setting up your monitor arm, it is important to ensure you have all the necessary tools for the job. The tools that you will need are as follows: an Allen wrench, a Phillips head screwdriver, a flathead screwdriver, and a power drill (optional).


Step 1: Start by attaching the base plate of your monitor arm to the desk surface using screws. Make sure the screws are tightened securely, so they don’t come loose over time.

Step 2: Securely attach the post to the base plate using an Allen wrench. Make sure that the post is firmly attached before proceeding any further.

Step 3: Connect both monitors to your computer using HDMI cables or DisplayPort cables, depending on what type of connection each monitor requires. If necessary, use adapters if either of your monitors uses an older connection type, such as VGA or DVI-D. Once both monitors are connected properly, turn them on and make sure that they are displaying correctly on your computer screen.

Step 4: Attach each monitor mount bracket to each monitor using screws and/or thumbscrews depending on which type of connection each monitor has (e.g., VESA or non-VESA). Next, attach each mounted bracket to one end of the monitor arm using an Allen wrench or Phillips head screwdriver. Finally, adjust both brackets, so they are level with each other and tighten them securely in place with an Allen wrench or Phillips head screwdriver.
