Question about wall-mounting flat panel monitors
posted by pete_22 to home & garden (6 answers total) 2 users marked this as a favorite
I have three 21" LCD monitors, about 18 lbs each, that I want to mount side-by-side on the wall, with the middle one as flush with the wall as possible and the left and right ones angled slightly in towards the center.
My question is what kind of hardware do I need for this? I've found lots of multi-monitor mounting systems but most are post/rail/clamp type desk mounts, not wall mounts. There are lots of wall mounts for a single monitor or even a double one, but the studs in my wall are not going to be exactly the right distance apart for three (or even two) separate mounts to work, right? I want to minimize any unnecessary swing arm fixtures that would push the monitors more than a couple inches off the wall.
I don't mind paying for the right mounting kit if it exists, but if it doesn't, I've thought of trying to jury rig something with a wooden board that spans two or three studs and in turn supports three single mounts with the right spacing ...would this be stable? Any other suggestions/advice are welcome. Thanks!
