Monitor stands typically consist of two or three components, depending on your monitor. Although you can detach the stand directly from your monitor when you don’t remove the monitor stand in the right way, it could lead to complications later on because other components of the stand may not work properly. So instead, see how to remove the monitor stand.

Clutter negatively impacts our mental and emotional health, so experts recommend keeping your work desk clean. In this age of wall-mounted and desk-mounted computer monitor screens, most people opt for the latter. Additionally, they wish to reattach the screen onto a monitor arm or laptop and monitor stand, which gives them more flexibility and attempts to remove it from its stand.

You end up gaining from the additional desk space and the benefit of protecting your neck and eyesight. In spite of this, you have to be careful about switching to a stand-free setup due to the way PC screens are manufactured. The following instructions will give you the best tips for removing various kinds of monitor stands on your own if you wish to attach them to an adjustable dual monitor riser later.  

The task of removing them, however, can be challenging. In order to assist you in removing the monitor stand, we have created this article. Almost all monitors have two or three components combined to form a monitor stand. The components are as follows:

  • A base
  • Vertical stand
  • A connector

How To Open The Monitor Stand

How To Open The Monitor Stand

The monitor stand of an LCD monitor is designed to hold only the screen, but it can be opened if you wish. A stand is usually attached to the bottom of a monitor. Monitor stands are used for elevating monitors off tables and desks. The monitor stand may not be easy to open in some cases. Knowing how to open the monitor stand is essential if you want to clean it or remove it.  

  • All monitor cables must be removed first.
  • Ensure that the power plug is disconnected.
  • You need to unscrew the screws on the base of the monitor stand to open it.
  • The stand can be lifted once the screws have been removed.

To remove the monitor stand, you will only need a screwdriver and a soft cloth that will not scratch the monitor's surface. 

  • First, make sure that the PC is turned off.
  • Ensure that the monitor screen doesn't get scratched by placing a soft cloth on the table.
  • Unscrew the back bolts to open the computer case.
  • It is possible to remove the screen cover.
  • In the next step, you must untangle the cables from the stand.
  • Taking the monitor stand completely off is now possible.

Detaching the Vertical Stand

Detaching the Vertical Stand

Ensure that there are no connections in the vertical part of the triple monitor desk mount base once it has been removed. There is most likely a connection between this section and the vertical stand holder. It is possible, however, that most monitors do not include this feature.

Monitors with vertical stands are sometimes directly attached to the monitor, while monitors with vertical stands are attached to a holder on the back. In order to find out how the monitor is connected to the stand, you should refer to the user manual.

Verify that no screws are holding the vertical stand before attempting to remove it. The monitor's stand should be removed if the screw has been removed. Look for buttons near or in the vertical stand if it has no screws.

You may need to press a dedicated button on some monitors like Dell and Acer to remove the vertical stand. Pull the stand outwards by pressing the button. If it does not come out of the monitor, you can try putting a little mechanical oil on the joints to see if it will budge.

By gently pulling the vertical stand away from the monitor, you may be able to remove it if it does not have any screws or buttons. You mustn't hold the monitor by its screen while doing this. Instead, keep it by its sides firmly.

Removing Vertical Holders

Removing Vertical Holders

There might even be a back panel that needs detaching to remove the holder that connects the previously released Vertical stand. Because this component is mounted inside the monitor, it may not be possible to remove it without disassembling it.

Please take your monitor to a local electronic repair shop to remove this holder if you are unsure about disassembling it. Because the holder's orientation varies depending on the monitor you use, dismantling them is also different. Below is a brief explanation of how to remove the vertical stand holder.

  • The monitor's back panel needs to be removed by removing all the screws.
  • Take out the back panel gently. All cables connecting the ports and buttons on the panel must be removed.
  • Remove any screws connecting the vertical stand holder once the back panel has been removed.
  • The monitor should be reassembled after all cables are connected.
