Questions and Answers
, rather than the clamp?
A year ago, I built my own stand-up mess out of wood and screws, etc., but it made me stand up all the time. I decided I wanted to stand up sometimes and sit down sometimes. Searching for a solution gives many results, mostly costing more than I wanted to pay. The application I have is at home since I'm retired and pay for things myself.
I found this (model 15717) on Monoprice, and bought it. It was delivered quickly, packaged well.
I was intimidated by what I got. There are absolutely zero words of instructions in any language, eliminating translations being needed. What you do get is a glossy sheet of figures, which is a step by step process for putting the thing together. I studied this sheet, associating the steps with the parts. I recommend doing this.
The first step has an A part (attach the thing to the edge of some piece of furniture) and a B part (attach it by drilling a hole down through a stout top of some piece of furniture.)
I chose B to match my piece of furniture which is stout. I had to find a 13/32 inch drill bit to do the job.
I cannot emphasize enough how much the meditation I did with the installation drawings helped me.
You first fasten the base to the column and then mount and secure the column with base to the stout table. Then you slide stuff down the column from the top. First goes a cable restraint. Then goes the first of two stop rings. Be careful with the stop rings. They both contain 2 small metal pieces that almost always fall out as you handle them. The first lock ring is the position for the keyboard lever. Mine is about 5 inches above the table. Then you put the keyboard lever on the column. Then another cable restraint. Then you add the second lock ring which is the lower stopping point for the monitor holder. This is for the sitting position.
Then you screw the monitor holder to the monitor, after removing whatever monitor stand it had. Then you slide the monitor holder and monitor down the column. At this point you discover there is no mechanism to make the monitor go up and down. Tighten the bolts in the monitor holder just enough so it doesn’t slip, but you can move it. It is designed to work this way. Experiment.
Then mount the keyboard tray to the keyboard lever and route cables.
So how does it perform? Well, pretty well, but there are things to consider. The keyboard goes from standing to sitting and back nicely. The keyboard is a couple inches higher than the table in the sitting position, but if your chair is adjustable, it is fine. Changing the monitor position takes a bit of work. If it’s low in the sitting position, against the lower stop ring, you must raise it yourself by grabbing it at the top and bottom and sliding it up the column. So you get a slight upper-body workout. Now, I’m 76 and I raise it fine. Lowering it does not involve lifting weights, but it’s like hiking downhill, you have to put the brakes on. Once you practice this a few times, it is not a problem, if you can do it at all.
Now I can sit or stand. It is exactly what I wanted. The column height will accommodate NBA players.
PROS: Low price, well built. I expect it will outlast me.
CONS: At this price, none.
