Setting Up Your Desk Mount V3

7. The lower assembly height can be adjusted to suit your needs.

*  Maintain at least one mount hole spacing to ensure adequate stability. 

8. To adjust the desk mount clamp, first remove the highlighted rubber pad.

9. The highlighted gap should equal the thickness of your desk + 2mm. 

10. The highlighted nuts can be loosened to allow adjustment of the main clamp bolt.
