Mounting a Monitor

9
Posted 17th Nov
Hi,

I've had my monitor on my wall for the past year and have just come to replace it with a new one.

However, the mounting screws for the back of the monitor seem to be too long? I thought they were all standard for a mounting bracket?

The mount kit you got will possibly have come with standoff spacers, little black cylinders like in the picture below:

Unless this is what these rubber things are for?...

If you’re worried, get a tooth pick or similar and poke through the hole to gauge the depth, then compare to the length of the screw.
The rubber things do look like potential spacers.

Have you read the instructions?

Yeah I think they are spacers. I found them in my old monitor box.

Initially I did screw the screws in without the spacers and then felt some resistance. Shouldn't think I've done any damage though right?

You may not think you have, & we do not know. You did the screwing. What do you think?
Hopefully you're not screwed.
Next time just pad the bolts out with Penny washers or cut the bolts down with a hacksaw.

No idea. I had the same issue with a tv, hence why I used a tooth pick to see how deep the holes were so I didn’t screw into the back of the screen...! Good job I did too, I had to cut the bolts down.
