Eye-Catching Ergonomics

Austin's Zilker Park is well-known for its beautiful, eye-catching views of the downtown skyline and Lady Bird Lake. Named after the famous locale, our Zilker Dual Monitor Arm provides an equally uplifting view of your monitors, elevating your comfort level and perspective. This monitor arm is our most aesthetically-pleasing and attractive option, and its lightweight, sleek, and durable design help it outrank all other monitor arms on the market.

Designed to give you more freedom to move and more control over your monitors' positions, the Zilker enables you to work in greater comfort than you can without monitor arms. Enjoy an ergonomically optimal view of one or two screens, whether you're sitting, standing, or sharing your monitors with collaborating coworkers.

With a wide range of adjustments available, built-in wire management, two mounting options, and color choices that match your UPLIFT Desk and other accessories, your monitors can finally rise to your level—both in height and style. You can even add a laptop mount, to elevate your portable computer, too.

Relief for your Eyes and Neck

The Zilker Monitor Arm enables one or two monitors to be ergonomically positioned for increased comfort and productivity while working. Adjust the height, tilt, distance, and alignment (pdf) 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 (for 1, 2, or 3 Monitor Configurations): 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.

Height (for 4 or 6 Monitor Configurations): It's ideal to use the bottom row of monitors as your intensive use monitors and the top row of monitors primarily for referencing. Make sure that the top line of the bottom row of monitors is at or just below eye level. Orient the top row of monitors as low as possible without interfering with the bottom row.

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

Horizontal Angle: Regarding configurations with more than one monitor, 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.

Gain Space with Floating Monitors

The Zilker Single Monitor Arm can adjust for smooth travel from 6.75–19" high.

Primary Zone: Located approximately 15" to 17" from the user, this zone is best for items that are used most frequently (like a keyboard and mouse).

Secondary Zone: Located approximately 27" from the user, items placed here can be reached without leaning. It's a good space for a phone, beverage, notepads, reference materials, or calculator.

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

Elevate your Laptop too

If you're a fan of working on your laptop, give it a boost and elevate it to eye level with a Laptop Mount. It makes a great addition to a Zilker Single or Dual Monitor Arm, and it is easy to add or remove. Using our laptop mount eases pressure on your neck while you're working by lifting the screen where your eyes can read it without extending your head forward—alleviating neck strain.

We recommend using an external keyboard and mouse when using your laptop on the mount. It also lifts your laptop off the desktop so you can use your desk space for other tasks.

Quick & Easy Installation

Add greater comfort to your workspace quickly: installation is a snap using either the clamp or bolt-through mounts. This monitor arm’s sturdy clamp mount installs on desktops ranging from 0.75–3.75" thick without the need for grommets. Using this method also allows you to install the arm near the back of your desk, to save a little room at your workstation.

An optional bolt-through mounting kit has been designed to seamlessly fit in holes ranging from 0.4–3.15" in diameter and desks ranging from 0.6–2.13" thick, allowing you to install your monitor arm through your desktop, anywhere you have a hole, or would like to drill one. You can drill a hole anywhere on your desktop you’d like and then cover the hole with this attractive arm. Most people use the clamp mount but our included bolt mount option provides you with ultimate flexibility in mounting.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How do I set up my monitors so that they are at the right height and depth for me?

    Since everyone is different, what is ergonomically ideal for you might not be the same for your coworkers. That's why we love monitor arms so much; these accessories allow you to move your monitors to the right spot for your eyes, neck, and body. If you'd like to learn how to set up your space so that it is ergonomically ideal for you, you can read our help guide about how to set up your monitor (pdf) here.

  2. What if my monitor is heavier than 11 lb? Will it work on the Zilker Single Monitor Arm?

    No, if your monitor is heavier than 11 lb, it will not work on the Zilker Single Monitor Arm, as this arm was designed to have a 4.4 lb - 11 lb weight range. Monitors heavier than this could cause the arm to drift lower than the height range it was designed to deliver. If you're looking for a monitor arm that can hold more than 11 lb, you might want to try our Range Monitor Arm, which comes with a recommended weight range of 4.5 lb - 17.5 lb.

  3. Is this arm better than the Range Single Monitor Arm?

    We have a monitor arm for most setups and users—it just depends on your unique needs. The Zilker Single Monitor Arm is ideal for single monitor setups and adjusts your screen from 6.75" - 19" high (from the center of the VESA plate), giving you a 12.25" range of adjustment. It's also important to note that taller monitors (or vertical ones) will not let the arm go down to the lowest point of 6.75" above the desk. If the monitor arm specs fit your requirements, and you want a monitor arm with rotation control and built-in wire management, the Zilker is an ideal choice for you.

  4. What monitor weights will this arm hold?

    The Zilker Single Monitor Arm is designed to support monitors from 4.4 lb - 11 lb. Monitors lighter than 4.4 lb will cause the arm to raise and stay at its highest height, while having a monitor that is heavier than 11 lb installed will cause the arm to sink and stay near its lowest point. It will work with monitors of any size or width that are inside that weight range.

  5. Help, my monitor won't stay in place.

    It sounds like you just need to counterbalance the monitor arm to the weight of your monitor. This is simple: just use the included Allen wrench to turn the tension control screw located in the middle of the arm. If you monitor is dropping, then you will need to adjust the tension screw towards the "+" sign. If your monitor keeps getting higher, then turn the tension screw towards the "-" sign. Just make small adjustments until you find that sweet spot that makes your monitor stay put!

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

    The quick-release VESA mount allows you to install and swap out monitors quickly using the quick-release clip. All you have to do is install this component on your 75 mm or 100 mm VESA-compatible monitor with just a few screws. After that, you can add or remove your monitor from the arm quickly and without tools.

  7. Do you have this in a dual monitor arm option?

    Absolutely! We also have the Zilker Dual Monitor Arm, which comes with the same adjustment features and accepts the same monitor weight ranges, allowing you to adjust two monitors to comfortable levels for your eyes and body. Please take note that the width limit for the dual arm is different than the single monitor arm, so be sure to check the specs, especially if you have very wide monitors. You might also consider installing two single monitor arms, which gives you more flexibility and room.

  8. Can I use this with other desks?

    Yes, this accessory is compatible with UPLIFT and non-UPLIFT desks.
