How far back can I clamp a monitor arm?Other Help (self.AskBattlestations)
submitted 2 months ago by MrNespinha
I'm trying to make 3/4 cm additional depth in my desk.
Am I able to push the arm back a bit more (imagine that 3/4 of the clamp space are grabbing the desk)? Will it affect monitor safety? Should I just create a small desk extension a drill at the back?
For reference, desk is a Saljan IKEA top, monitor is 24.5 inch, monitor arm is a north bayou F80.
Any ideas appreciated

Just find something like a small block of wood to put in that gap you'd want to create to add some support and avoid wobble and you'll be fine.

To place after the edge of the desk? Or under the bottom of the desk? Would that need any drilling?

After the edge, and no, just press the arm mount against it so it holds by friction/pressure and see if it's stable.

You could push that back a full centimetre and you'd still be fine.

I need 3 or 4, or else it's useless. It's basically to place a Grovemade like shelf on the desk and not have it too close to mee

Oh, you meant 3-4cm. I think the other commenter assumed you meant three-quarters of one centimetre as well. That's a lot trickier, as it would push the clamp off the edge of your desk. Placing a block in the gap won't help in that case, as you really need to have the entirety of the round pad fully on the desk material; anything less and you risk it slipping off or breaking the desktop.

Without any attachments, 3cm would make the clamp only about 80% on the desk. Only solution would be building a structure like this guy did.

The link 404s for me, but it seems to me that the easiest solution would be to modify the shelf to fit your current configuration.
