The M8’s high weight capacity allows it to easily accommodate dual-monitor applications. Using the optional crossbar, the M8 monitor arm supports two monitors—each weighing up to 20 lbs.—arranged side-by-side.
NOTE: There are two sets of Bracket Screw holes to accommodate the thickness of every work surface. Use the upper holes for surfaces up to 1.8” (48mm) thick and lower holes for surfaces up to 2.7” (68mm) thick.
For installation on work surface positioned against a wall or panel:
NOTE: This method can also be used to mount through grommet holes wider than 3”.
NOTE: Clamp Mounts cannot be used to mount the M8 to any vertical surface.
For installation on a desk with minimal clamp clearance
For installation on work surface with no access for clamp system:
Drill 1/2" hole through work surface in desired location.
NOTE: Bolt-Through Mount can accommodate a hole up to 4” (102mm) in diameter. If hole is 2” (51mm) or more, cables can be routed through the hole. For some 2”grommet holes, cables should be routed before installation of mount to accommodate cable plugs (cable access is approximately 1.5” x 0.25” with 2” grommets).
In each arm connection, there is an adjustable Smart Stop Ring which can be positioned to limit the arm’s range of motion. Depending on the orientation of the ring the arms can be set to rotate either 90°, 180°, or 360°. The marked angle will be in the center of the range of motion. The stop rings must be configured in such a way that the dynamic link head does not pass behind the rear edge of the unit.
NOTE: Before adding each link, adjust the smart stop (A) according to step 2. If using a 3 link configuration, one of the links must be a 4” link. The link installation order may need to be swapped so as to comply with step 2.
NOTE: If needed, adjust the tension screw (A) to hold the monitor in position.
After the monitors are installed on the crossbar, there may be a small height difference between them. To align the monitors, use the adjustment screw located on top of the monitor tilt
Your monitor should move up and down easily and stay in place once adjusted. If it is dificult to adjust or moves without assistance, it is not properly balanced.
CAUTION: Do not overtighten the screws as it can damage the screw head or threads
NOTE: Leave enough slack in the cables to allow arms to rotate without dificulty.
CAUTION: Don’t insert extension cords. Don’t insert any cord connecting one workstation to another.
NOTE: 4mm and 5mm Hex Key can be found under the plastic base cover.
