How Do I Mount My TRU-Vu Monitor?
  • Many of our monitors are supplied with a tabletop base.  (See the respective data sheet)
  • We offer optional tabletop bases and wall mount brackets for all monitors.  See our Mounting Brackets and Bases for more details and available styles.
  • All TRU-Vu monitors 8.4″ and larger have 4 industry-standard VESA screw holes for mounting.  These are arranged in a square pattern, 75 x 75 mm, 100 x 100 mm or 200 x 200 mm center-to-center.  Monitors from 8.4″ to 32″ use M4 screws.  They should sink into the monitor no more than 6-7 mm.  Monitors 42″ and larger use M6 screws.  They should sink into the monitor no more than 7 mm.  VESA mount hole patterns range from 100 x 100 mm to 200 x 200 mm.

How Should I Clean an LCD Monitor Screen Without Protective Glass?

We highly recommend Whoosh! Screen Cleaner.  It is a powerful, natural cleaner for any monitor, touch screen, or LCD display.  It is 100% natural, non-toxic and environmentally friendly.  Whoosh! removes dirt, smudges, streaks, fingerprints and skin oils.  It is alcohol-free, ammonia-free, streak-free and anti-static.  It will not scratch, mark or etch the LCD screen.  And, a nano-thin coating helps protect the LCD screen from future fingerprints.


  1. Create a solution of 50/50 distilled or ionized water and isopropyl alcohol.   **DO NOT USE WINDEX OR OTHER HOUSEHOLD GLASS CLEANERS**  These can have ammonia as an ingredient, which will damage the screen.
  2. Turn the monitor off and apply the solution to a soft cloth (not directly to the screen) and gently wipe the screen in a singular direction to remove any dirt or deposits.  Harsh paper towels can abrade the LCD surface.
  3. Avoid pressure on the screen; this can damage the individual cells of the LCD matrix.


How Should I Clean Monitors with Protective Glass Over the LCD Panel?

We highly recommend Whoosh! Screen Cleaner for all the reasons stated above.
