The iMac Mount VESA Adapter Kit provides a method for attaching the iMac to VESA compliant mounting devices by providing a mount interface solution
while the stand remains on the iMac. We offer a universal mount adapter kit for all 21.5 and 20 inch iMac models, and a universal kit for all 27 and 24 inch
iMac models. This includes the 21.5 and 27 (slim) models, 4K and 5K Retina models, and Pro models.
Our patented design integrates with the iMac stand using a unique fastening system, eliminating the need to remove the stand or modify the iMac in any
way. This allows for the iMac to remain as a portable computer and ensure warranty is not voided due to disassembling or modifications made. When
mounted, the fastening system allows for the iMac to be dismounted quickly and easily for relocation or travel.
Note that VESA mount devices used for mounting iMac computers are required to have the 100mm x 100mm (approx. 4 x 4 inch) hole pattern and must
provide the proper weight capacity for the weight of the iMac, plus 2 lbs.
"VESA" and the Apple iMac All-In-One Computer
For people who may not be familiar with the term "VESA compliant", VESA stands for "Video Electronics Standards
Association". The common definition when referring to LCD and Flat Panel monitors is: "VESA standard" means a
hole pattern on the back of the monitor; 75 mm x 75 mm or 100 mm x 100 mm (approximately 3" x 3" and 4" x 4"
respectively). The diameter of the screws used to mount displays with VESA mounting is 4 mm. The VESA
mounting holes on the back of LCD monitors may be centered or located towards the bottom stand. With certain
displays you may have to remove the stand or a cover plate before you can access the mount holes. If you are
interested in more in-depth information about VESA standards, the VESA.org website also provides summaries of
the organization's display mounting standards.
As confirmed by Apple's Support Site: No VESA Mount Adapter Kit for iMac Intel base 21.5 and 20 inch "aluminum"
models. Also, previous "white" Intel base 20 inch and iMac G5 models with iSight, making these iMac models VESA
non-compliant. While similar in form to iMac G5 models, G5 models with iSight are not compatible with Apple's iMac
G5 VESA Mount Adapter Kit (discontinued).
The 20" iMac models from the "White" series iMac Core 2 Duo have the same housing and stand as the original Intel
powered iMac Core Duo series, and these models are VESA non-compliant as well. The confusion is because
Apple at one time did provide an optional VESA mount adapter kit with similar iMac models. The earlier iMac G5
models that could be made VESA compliant with adapter kits are: (2) models with 20" displays -- the iMac G5/1.8
20-Inch and G5/2.0 20"; also, (3) models with 17" displays -- the iMac G5/1.6 17", G5/1.8 17", and G5/2.0 17".
With regards to all iMac all-in-one models offered after these pre-iSight models, only the 24" and 27" iMac models
prior to late 2012 have had VESA adapter kits available from Apple. The 20" and 21.5" iMac models were left
having no VESA bracket kit option and more importantly, no method for removing the stand. Because of this, and
the fact that most people who purchase the 20" and 21.5" iMacs as a "portable" computer, it was essential to
develop a VESA adapter kit for the iMac that would not require the stand to be removed or any modification to be
made to the computer. Our iMac VESA Mount Adapter Kit provides the best of both worlds for the iMac user as it
allows them the flexibility to attach their iMac to a VESA mounting system and mount their iMac the way they would
like to e.g., above a work surface, on a wall, kitchen cabinet, etc. Then, when they decide to temporarily move their
iMac to a different location or take it with them when they travel, the iMac is ready to go with a few turns of the
patented fastening assembly.
I'm very pleased with the product- it is working
great with my new 20' iMac, and the
manufacturing quality of your bracket is beautiful
to behold. Definitely worth what you charge: I
spent several minutes just rolling the pieces
around in my hands, admiring the workmanship.
Thank you for making a well made product in this
era of cheap plastic and broken promises!
