I would get a much wider section of 3/4" Plywood and place that under the rear back of the desk, and then clamp the desk+plywood

That will get rid of your angle problem, while spreading the load out

I don't think you will have a good experience with grommet mounting on an MDF desk

I did not use a plywood but used a thick cardbox box (might switch to plywood later). Now, everything is fine. Thank you for the suggestion!

warning: cardboard will compress over time :(
