Monitor stands also come in different mounting styles. Their convenience and ease of installation differ. We have grommet (bolt), edge (c-clamp) and wall and Slatwall.
Wall and Slatwall
Many retailers have monitors mounted on the wall. This is convenient as it clears some space from their desks. It also helps work on the monitor with ease. But, wall mounts do not accommodate multiple monitors compared to desk mounts. Oftentimes, wall mounts accommodate larger screens that may not fit on desks.
Households are also regular customers of wall-mounted monitors. If you have a small room, a wall mount can come at an advantage to clear some space. Everyone will be positioned to watch the movies conveniently without bending upward or downward.
This is by far the most common especially in pre-drilled desks. A grommet mounting option is more stable. Monitor stands come with bolts so you can bolt through to fasten the stand to the desk. However, glass desks are an exclusion when using grommets unless they have the pre-drilled holes already. But, we do not encourage you to install the stands on glass desks.
The downside of grommet mounting option is lack of mobility. You will have to take time to unbolt the stand so you can move it around.
The stand can also be installed with c-clamps. The c-clamp allows you to install the monitor at the edge of your desk. So, you do not have to drill the desk unless you want to combine grommets with c-clamps. It is possible! Other monitor stands come with both c-clamps and grommets. That will give your stand more stability.
