Save Your Neck & Eyes

The Crestview Align Dual Monitor Arm enables monitors to be ergonomically positioned for increased comfort and productivity while working. Adjust the height, tilt, distance, and alignment of screens to reduce stress on the neck, shoulders, and torso—and to keep eyes from straining to see a monitor that is too far away.

Distance: Place your monitor screen roughly an arm's length (fingertip reach) away. Positioning the screen too far away will cause you to have trouble seeing the monitor and your eyes will pull your head forward causing you to extend your neck; this often leads to neck, back, and shoulder discomfort.

Height: Make sure that the top line of your monitor is at or just below eye level. Tilting your head backward to read your screen leads to discomfort.

Vertical Angle: Adjust the vertical screen angle to minimize glare from windows and other light sources.

Horizontal Angle: For the monitors that are positioned not directly in front of you, adjust the horizontal angle so that they're more perpendicular to your perspective and less parallel to your desk.

Float Your Monitors to Gain Space

The Crestview Align Dual Monitor Arm has 13" of vertical adjustment range provided by a smooth operating gas assisted spring arm that counterbalances monitors perfectly. Valuable desktop real estate is reclaimed by floating the two monitors above the desktop. More usable desktop space contributes to enhanced comfort and productivity.

Primary Zone: Approximately 15" to 17" from the user, this zone is the most valuable and is used for items that are used most frequently, like a keyboard and mouse.

Secondary Zone: Approximately 27" inches away from the user. The user can reach items within this zone without the need to lean. It's a good space for a coffee cup, water bottle, phone, calculator, or reference notebooks.

Tertiary Zone: Approximately 42" to 45" from the user. It's a good space for sunglasses, books, or lamps.

Improved Design Features

180 or 360 Degrees of Pivot: The Crestview Align Dual Monitor Arm is capable of switching between 360 and 180 degrees of pivot depending on your needs. Effortlessly engage the 180 degree stopping mechanism to prevent the monitor arm from rotating past the back edge of the desk. This feature ensures the prevention of collisions with walls, privacy panels, or perhaps the monitors of a coworker seated opposite.

Cable Management: Route cables and cords efficiently from the monitor to the computer for a clean and organized aesthetic.

Allen Wrench Holder: Holds the included allen wrenches for adjustments or for future monitor arm relocation in a convenient location behind the monitor arm base.

Expanded Capabilities

The optional Crestview Monitor Arm Wiring Kit adds two multimedia ports and two 3.0 USB ports. This kit adds convenient access to microphone and headset jacks and USB connectivity. The kit's cable length is 6' and most users find this to be a sufficient length for the wiring from their computer to the monitor arm base. If more cable length is needed, cable extensions can be utilized. The Wiring Kit only comes in black, regardless of the color of monitor arm selected.

Assembly & Installation

Choose from two included mounting options:

  • The Clamp-On mount attaches the monitor arm along the edge of the desktop. The clamp mount works with desktops that are 0.4" to 3.3" thick.
  • The Bolt-Through mount positions the monitor arm anywhere on the desktop using an existing hole, like a grommet, or an entirely new hole. The bolt-through mount works on desktops between 0.4" to 1.8" thick.

Each monitor mount of the Crestview Align Dual Monitor Arm supports monitors weighing from 2.2 lb to 17.6 lb, meaning just about any monitor is compatible.

Quick release VESA plates assist immensely with monitor installation. This takes out the difficult challenge of needing to hold a monitor up to the monitor arm to fasten with screws. Instead: attach the VESA plates to the monitors, then slide the VESA plates onto each monitor mount.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I use this arm with a desk that isn't an UPLIFT Desk?

    Yes, this accessory is compatible with UPLIFT and non-UPLIFT desks, as long as the desktop meets the thickness specification:

    • Clamp-On (0.4" - 3.3" desktop thickness)
    • Bolt-Through (0.4" - 1.8" desktop thickness)
  2. Do you have the Crestview in a single or triple monitor arm option?

    The Crestview is available in 3 configurations: Single, Dual, and Align Dual.

  3. Is the handle removable?

    Yes, the handle is removable. You can choose to not install it or install to get your monitors adjusted then remove it when the monitors are at the correct position. The handle location can also be adjusted to four different heights.

  4. Can the monitor arm be mounted upside down?

    The monitor arm is not designed to be mounted upside down and the monitors should not be rotated upside down either.

  5. What is a "quick-release VESA mount"?

    We understand the frustration of holding a monitor up with one hand while trying to fasten it onto the VESA plate with the other.

    The quick release VESA mount makes attaching a monitor simple. Fasten the included VESA plate to the back of your monitor, then slide the VESA plate into the mounts along the monitor arm bar.

  6. Can the monitor arms be locked, so that the monitor does not move if bumped?

    The base should not move if installed properly but there is no way to lock the swivel of the arm joints.

  7. I need help setting up my monitor arm at the ergonomically correct position. Do you have any tips?

    Distance: Place your monitor screen roughly an arm's length (fingertip reach) away. Positioning the screen too far away will cause you to have trouble seeing the monitor and your eyes will pull your head forward causing you to extend your neck; this often leads to neck, back, and shoulder discomfort.

    Height: Make sure that the top line of your monitor is at or just below eye level. Tilting your head backward to read your screen leads to discomfort.

    Angle: Adjust screen angle to minimize glare from window and light sources.
