Ergotron 97-783 Dual Monitor and Handle Kit

Dual Monitor and Handle Kit, Mar 7, 2017
by Dan F, Turlock, California
It was welcome news to find this product would accommodate the installation of my second monitor. The fact that the second monitor is slightly larger (26") did produce enough added weight and size to inhibit the support mechanism, and not allow the installation of the handle. The added weight is too much for "tilt" control, and must rest on the shelf below to ensure a proper angle, and to raise them a few inches will require a support device. Overall, I am satisfied with the needed mount.

Trouble with weight, May 5, 2016
by wayne s, Connecticut
kit was fairly easy to install. But weight of two 22" monitors caused problems with existing Ergo adjustable height stand. Had to tighten the up/down adjustment all the way to hold the monitors at the stand position. Ended up breaking the tilt adjustment to accommodate the weight of the two monitors. Now I have a block of aluminum wedged under tilt mechanism to hold the monitors at correct angle.

Hard to install and adjust, Sep 21, 2015
by Paul M, California
The instructions are in "IKEA" style, pictures primarily. Some are confusing as to which side of a part is up or down, etc. Took longer to do than I anticipated. The adjusting mechanism broke during adjustment. I did like how it looked and the handle, but certainly not user friendly.

Exclusive Remedy

Warranty Repair: In the event that any Ergotron equipment becomes defective in material or workmanship during the warranty period, Ergotron will determine with you if the product defect is covered under warranty. Ergotron, at its sole discretion, may replace or repair the unit determined to be under warranty at a designated Ergotron location or at your location. The labor costs associated with the repair of the product may be the responsibility of Ergotron if determined to be under warranty.

An RMA number may be obtained by contacting Ergotron Customer Care online or by telephone within your specific region. Contact information is available to you on the Ergotron web site at www.ergotron.com. Performance of any repair or replacement on product under warranty does not renew or extend the warranty period.

Non-Warranty Repair: You may return a product for repair that is not covered by warranty only if you have received a preapproved RMA number from Ergotron Customer Care.

A standard repair fee, specific to the product, is charged for any product that is repaired outside of the warranty period.
