The Zilker Single Monitor Arm

From its sprawling green lawn in the heart of Austin, Zilker Park provides views of downtown that captivate and inspire. We named our Zilker Single Monitor Arm after this iconic spot for a reason. If you're in search of an ergonomically-correct view at your desk, look no further.

The sleek and ergonomically adjustable Zilker Single Monitor Arm is designed to give you control over your monitor's viewing level, allowing you to work in greater comfort than you could with a monitor that sits on your desk.

Our designers included a wide range of adjustments, integrated cable management, two different mounting options, and colors that coordinate with your décor and accessories—all so that you can finally work with your monitor on your level, in the style that suits you and your space.

Why Should You Use the Zilker Single Monitor Arm?

If you find yourself with neck soreness or pain after viewing your computer monitor for any length of time, the Zilker Single Monitor Arm is a great accessory to include in your setup. It enables you to get your screen into more comfy viewing positions for your eyes, neck, and shoulders.

This monitor arm easily supports screens weighing as little as 4.4 lb and as much as 11 lb, a range that suits the majority of monitors.

Prepare your monitor for smooth travel from 6.75" - 19" high (from the center of the VESA plate)—a full 12.25" of dynamic height adjustment that puts you in control of your monitor's position. Find that sweet spot for your screen—the one that keeps you (and visiting viewers) comfortable at all times, whether sitting or standing.

Working with two wider screens? Try our Zilker Dual Monitor Arm to uplift your dual monitor setup. Or you could even install two Zilker Single Monitor Arms, which enable you to work without limitations on monitor width.

An add-on laptop mount lets users raise their laptops to better viewing heights.

Easy Adjustments and Rotation Control

With the Zilker Single Monitor Arm, you can position your monitor to where it's most comfortable.

Tired of your monitor arms bumping into things behind your desk? The Zilker comes with a rotation stop pin to prevent it from swiveling past the back edge. This feature is great for offices that have desks situated against walls, back-to-back workstation layouts, or offices with desks close to walkways. Want full rotation of your monitor? Simply remove the pin for 360 degrees of freedom.

As you change positions throughout the day, this arm allows you to move your monitor accordingly. Adjustments are effortless, with tension control that can be fine-tuned to hold your monitor in just the right spot. Need to switch between portrait and landscape modes on the fly? You got it—just rotate your monitor 90 degrees. You can even tilt your screen from -30 degrees to +30 degrees, letting you read your display from a whole new set of angles.

Two Installation Options: Clamp Mount and Bolt-through Mount

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.

Reclaim Desktop Space by Lifting Your Laptop

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 the Zilker Single Monitor Arm and 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.

Easy Installation and Quick Screen Swapping

We made installation easier than ever for our Zilker Single Monitor Arm. Thanks to an advanced design, all you have to do to attach the plate to the back of your screen, and just a few screws do the trick. After this step, you can add or remove your monitor in a jiff without having to awkwardly hold your monitor while you insert screws to attach it to the arm.

This also makes swapping out your monitor easier on you, too.

Coordinated Color Options

Outfit your desk for more comfortable monitor viewing in black, white, gray, or metallic (industrial style). It'll make matching easier than ever and give you that put-together look at your workstation.

Please note: The metallic (industrial style) color has an uneven finish. This uneven finish is intentional and brings out the color of the metal underneath. If you prefer a consistent finish, we recommend choosing a different color option.

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 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 6.88" 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.
