Neo-Flex Desk Mount Tablet Arm

The Ergotron Neo-Flex Desk Mount Tablet Arm is a great way to hold a tablet or even smaller tablet computers up off your desk or counter to keep it clutter free. The Neo-Flex Tablet Arm mounts to the side of a desk or table using the clamp or bolt and knob hold down.

The Neo-Flex Tablet Arm has an upright post with two arm sections and behind the tablet mount it has a three way swivel to allow a wide range of views. The arm has a cable management clip on each section for use of a charging cable power cables for small monitors.

The mounting solutions of a clamp or the bolt allow you to mount the arm on a desk, counter or table for easy solutions in an office or at home. The mount has an L bracket that can be reversed for thicker or thinner surfaces to mount them on using either the bolt or clamp.

The arm has a push button rotating joint that allows you to move the second arm 90 degrees for a wide variety of positions and extends out about 19 inches. The arm swivels well and allows you to move a tablet in a variety of positions for the best viewing and use of your tablet.

The tablet holder from the Neo-Flex Tablet Arm holds tablets well with two sliding arms for the bottom of your tablet and a top swivel clamp. The bottom arms that hold a tablet have a bottom and side clip as well as a height adjustment using two screws.

The tablet holder has a top clamp that uses a spring to hold the top of your tablet but it has a rubber pad to protect the tablet from scratches. The clamp works well and the holder can handle tablets from 5.5 by 8 inches up to 8 by 9.75 inches but you can remove the tablet cradle to use the VESA mount as well.

The Neo-Flex can hold smaller monitors but you have to watch the weight as the tablet arm can hold up to 2.5 pounds so that you don’t overstress the joints. The tablet cradle works well for medium and large tablets but for small ones like the Nexus 7 you may need something else.

I simply mounted a couple of L brackets on the VESA mount and screwed a Nexus 7 cradle to that to hold my Nexus 7 on the Neo-Flex Tablet Arm. The Tablet Arm has the two cable clamps so the cable for the tablet cradle fits well from the tablet to below the desk where my outlet is.

The Neo-Flex Desk Mount Tablet Arm is a great way to hold larger tablets and does a great job of keeping my tablet out of the way for more room on my desk. I highly recommend the Neo-Flex Desk Mount Tablet Arm from Ergotron as a great tablet mount or smaller monitor arm.

Ergotron Universal Tablet Cradle

The Ergotron Universal Tablet Cradle is a handy way to mount a tablet or even small monitor next to your regular monitor using the rear VESA mounting holes. The Ergotron Universal Tablet Cradle keeps your tablet handy and always ready with an easy to use top clamp that holds the tablet in place as well as making it fast to remove.

The Ergotron Universal Tablet Cradle has four mounting holes on the back that line up with the VESA monitor mount holes and can hold medium and larger tablets. The width of the two arms is from 5.5 to 8 inches while the height adjusts from 8 to 9.75 inches.

The Universal Tablet Cradle holds medium and larger tablets but smaller ones like the Nexus 7 come just a little too small in height for the spring loaded clamp on the top to keep the tablet snuggly in the holder. The Tablet Cradle mounts easily using two screws in the VESA holes with a clamp for the side of the monitor to steady the cradle.

I used an aluminum channel and replaced the small arms to make the cradle fit my smaller Nexus 7 tablet and used a z shaped piece of steel from an Erector set for the top of a DoubleSight 9 inch display. The cradle works well for larger tablets like iPads or even eReaders like the Kindle but can be adapted to fit smaller ones as well with a little do it yourself ingenuity.

I simply cut a channel about six inches wide then lined the inside with sticky backed foam and drilled a hole in it to mount it where the two arms are held onto the cradle. The cradle does a great job of holding my 9 inch monitor using a bent piece from an Erector set to hold the top against the cradle.

The cradle used for the medium and larger tablets works well and is easy to use so getting it for a tablet holder is a great idea. Your tablet is ready in a second by the simple spring loaded but rubber protected clamp on top so you don’t scratch your tablet.

The Ergotron Universal Tablet Cradle may not fit every tablet but it works well for any larger than the Nexus 7 and one I can highly recommend. If you’re looking for a tablet cradle for mounting on a monitor the Ergotron Universal Tablet Cradle is a great choice.
