Monitor mount question

Snaps (Elite) posted this on Monday, 25th May 2020, 22:17

I have an AOC 12473PWY monitor which is on a mount containing all the connections and speakers.
There is no VESA fitting available on the back and I'm trying to figure out if there's anyway I can remove the base and still be able to connect without it.
There are 8 screws on the base which don't appear to allow any easy access, I haven't tried getting physical yet in case I can't reconnect it.

The puzzle is that on the rear corner of the screen is this...


which doesn't appear to have anything that slides in any direction behind it and I'm reluctant to just push in case I damage the screen.
Give up or has anyone come across a similar problem.

That's the receptacle where you would fit a Kensington lock to secure it to a table etc. and stop anyone nicking it...

I might be able to send you something that will adapt a non-VESA monitor to take a VESA mount. What size is the monitor?

Thanks for the offer. I know there are adaptors available much like a phone mount for a car but my problem is separating it from it's base and knowing if all the gubbins on that base are accessible afterwards.
I think SJ has scotched that as I had a vague hope that there was some kind of catch to remove the back of the monitor.

I'm sure someone with your skill set Robbee would have the soldering iron out and sort it but I'll live with it as is.

I'm just on a mission to regain some desk space as my office is so small. Already shifted the tower under the desk on a wheeled trolley and rebooted the printer so it's now wifi and can be shifted outside.

In the past I have bought a thick piece of clear shaped acryclic and placed the monitor on that. Might be another option for you.

This kind of thing:

They would nick the monitor with the table LOL

Pretty well any security measure is only a delaying/inconveniencing tactic so they go and nick someone else's.

Thanks. Might just get a mount for a second monitor, I think I've got one somewhere.  Thinking of dipping my toe in the Rasberry Pi world and want to be able to keep it completely separate.
