Mounting your Samsung T220 to a monitor arm allows you to swivel your monitor around, giving you many different angles to display your computer from. Hanging a monitor arm is an easier process than hanging a standard wall-mount, as you only need one wall stud and the monitor arm gives you more room to work with behind the monitor. All you need is regular household tools and the entire process takes less than an hour to complete.
Use a stud finder to locate a wall stud behind the drywall. Make an outline of the wall stud by using a pencil to draw it on the wall. Determine the height where you want to hang your wall mount monitor arm.
Hold the base of the monitor arm flush against the wall so that the mounting holes lie over the wall stud. Insert the lag bolts through the mounting holes and tighten them into the wall stud using a wrench.
Position the flat-ended monitor arm against the back of the monitor so that the holes in the back of the monitor line up with the holes in the back of the plate. These holes are called VESA holes and they are specifically designed to allow you to mount your monitor. Insert the VESA screw through the monitor plate into the monitor and tighten using a Phillips screwdriver.
Lift the monitor up so the pivot-point arm of the monitor plate lines up with the pivot point of the arm of the wall plate. Insert the security screw through the pivot points of each arm to join the two sides together and tighten the nut for the security screw using a wrench.
