Tether Tools: VESA Vu Monitor Adapter
VESA Compliant

With built-in VESA compliant receptors for 75×75 and 100×100 monitors, the Local Vu and Go Vu easily mounts most monitors. For alternate configurations, Tether Tools optional VESA Adapter Plates (200×200, 200×400, and Universal adapter plates – all sold separately) can help achieve secure mounting of any VESA compliant monitor configuration. The Local Vu and Go Vu is easy to install with four included screws and can stay on the monitor at all times, allowing for an easy switch from stand to desk mounting as needed. 

If planning to mount the Local Vu on a 5/8″ (16mm) pin a swivel pin or knuckle is recommended in order to angle and position the monitor.


*The Local Vu & Go Vu are rated to hold equipment up to 35 lbs (15.88kg), however, always refer to maximum load limits on stands, arms and clamps. Those weight limitations ALWAYS take precedent. For larger monitors always position the display over one of the stand legs. The use of a sandbag on the opposite leg of the monitor is recommended.
