When you are shopping for a monitor stand, it's important that you know what size screws your monitor requires. The most popular sizes are M4 and M6. If you have a different sized screw, there is an adapter that you can use to make sure that the mount works with your monitor.
A standard monitor stand comes with M4 screws. This is a metric screw, which means the thread pitch (the distance between the threads) is 0.7 millimeters. The thread diameter is 2 mm, and it's made of steel.
M4 screws are standard in many devices that use hexagonal fasteners; they're also commonly used in furniture assembly as well as some types of machinery manufacturing and industrial equipment maintenance applications.
One of the most common screw sizes for monitor stands is the M4. This is also known as 4-40 and 6mm diameter screws. The M4 screw size is not to be confused with a 4mm dia. (diameter) or even an 8mm dia., both of which are also commonly used for attaching monitors to their stands.
If you want to mount your monitor on a Vesa mount, it is recommended that you use an M6 screw with a size of 4.5mm x .70. This will allow the monitor to be firmly attached to the wall and prevent any wobbling or tilting while in use. To remove the stand from your monitor, use a small Phillips head screwdriver in order to undo the screws at each corner of the screen frame. Then, lift off your monitor's stand and replace it with one made for mounting purposes (if applicable).
If you're using an adapter, tighten the screws with a screwdriver. When you're done, remove the adapter and tighten the monitor stand's original screws.
If you're not using an adapter, use a flat-head or Phillips head screwdriver to loosen and tighten the screws as needed.
Your monitor stand may be M4, but you may not know that. You see, most people don't know what their screw size is. That's because there's no reason to know; it's just a standard size and every hardware store has it. If you're building your own desk or making furniture for work, knowing your screw size is important so that you can get the right screws for whatever project you're doing.
