Hewlett-Packard is the manufacturer of the L2208W, a type of adjustable aftermarket computer monitor. In order to unlock the L2208W stand, you must remove the "Swivel Locking Pin" located in the monitor's base. You might want to do this to either fold away or open up the double-hinged monitor base. When opened up, the monitor base can provide additional height to the monitor. The process is quite straightforward and should only take a few seconds.
