Uplifting Monitor Arm

We designed the UPLIFT monitor arm with fingertip adjustments and a wide range of motion—to keep flexibility in your hands while you focus on the view.

If you're thinking you need to see even more, either take a look at our UPLIFT Dual Monitor Arm, or just let a pair of Singles mingle side-by-side to help set up a second monitor.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Will I still be able to use this monitor arm if my monitor is heavier than the weight limit?

    No. If your monitor is too heavy for the monitor arm, then the counterbalance mechanism will not hold properly. After adjusting your arm to the perfect height, it will sink because it is unable to support the weight of the monitor. On the other hand, if your monitor is too light, the arm will drift upwards. That is why it is important to adhere to the weight range listed.

  2. If I have two monitors, should I get two single arms or a dual arm?

    Two single monitor arms will give you slightly more adjustment options. You can have the bases set further apart to make room for larger monitors. Two single monitor arms will also make it easier to push your monitors flat up against the wall.

  3. How do I attach this to my desk?

    The UPLIFT Monitor Arm will used a clamp mechanism. It can either clamp to the back of your desk or through a grommet hole.

  4. What do I do if my monitor is sitting too high or too low and I can't adjust it?

    Your monitor arm will come adjusted to counterbalance a standard 17" monitor. To adjust the monitor arm to fit your own monitor, use the included Allen wrench to increase or decrease the amount of support needed to counterbalance your arm. Check out our video showing how to Counterbalance the UPLIFT Monitor Arm .

  5. Do you sell VESA adapters?

    We do not sell VESA adapters.

  6. Are there any other colors available?

    Currently, black is the only color available for our UPLIFT Single Monitor Arm. If you would like a gray monitor arm, check out our new UPLIFT View Monitor Arm.

  7. Is this your newest monitor arm?

    No, we expanded our monitor arm collection to include the View and Horizon Monitor Arms. We still keep our original monitor arm because it is a very good option!

  8. Do you sell extension pieces to make this arm any longer?

    The UPLIFT Desk Monitor Arm comes with a generous reach of 27.5". We do not sell any extension pieces to make this arm any longer as that would compromise the sturdiness of the arm.

  9. Can I mount anything with a VESA plate attachment to this arm?

    Go for it! As long as what you are attaching is between 4.5 and 17.5 pounds and has a standard VESA 100/75 mount, it should work. Also be sure to double-check that the dimensions of this monitor arm are compatible with what you are mounting.

  10. Can I use this monitor arm to work standing up at my desk?

    Although the UPLIFT Monitor Arm offers a generous maximum height of 19.5", we do not recommend using it to convert your stationery desk to a standing work station. Instead, a better option for you to consider would be our Desktop Converters, which are meant for that exact purpose.

    Great arm x2

    Posted by BMP on Oct 17th 2018

    I have a few of these on each desk vs a double arm, I like the configuration options for two single arms vs 1 dual. I run small to large monitors on them (19" - 28") with out an issue. Most LED monitors are so light nowadays that the arm can lift them with ease. The wire mgmt is simple but effective and overall they have preformed well.

    Well built. Very solid.

    Posted by Daniel Heater on Sep 16th 2017

    I have this model and a Dual View model. This model has much better range of motion than the view models.

    The cables aren't as well hidden as they are on the view, but they are more accessible. This model doesn't have the USB port, but I find that that is not a problem. With the "view" model I only use those ports as an "extension" cord for my monitor USB cord.

    Built very well. Very nice!

    Posted by Scott M on Sep 24th 2015

    Built very well, Very nice! I purchased two for my dual monitor setup (27" monitors) and paid half the price of other brands I looked at. I have ergotron arms at work and these are better. Having both of my monitors on individual arms (instead of buying a dual monitor arm) functions well for me since sometimes I turn a monitor to show co-workers and customers and thus need it mounted to the side of my desk. worth the price, Great product easy assembly and adjustment. I work on a 13" Cintiq drawing tablet and I'm always craning my neck to look down at it. I mounted it onto this bad boy and now my drawing experience has completely changed. I'm quite impressed. Note that it seemed stiff during setup. Then I mounted my monitor on an arm and it worked perfectly. As soon as it supports the weight of a monitor it becomes balanced, moveable but solid. It has been a big help in my neck comfort and my eyes feel better after looking at the monitor all day.

    Highly Recommend it!

    Posted by Kevin Donahoe on May 8th 2015

    We are very pleased with the product. It is much more robust than we expected and would definitely describe it as a "professional-grade" product. It was easy to assemble and install. Additionally, the price was nice and we received it in 2 days. BRAVO!
