Do they make a 0 height monitor stand?

Specs: Windows XP, 2 GB
Does anyone know if anyone makes a monitor stand that will basically let an LCD monitor sit directly on the desktop? I want to fit a monitor under a shelf built into my desk but it's too tall with the stand. Thanks!

Contact the LCD Manufacturer for available options.

You could fabricate something if the Base has no electronics in it.

There is nothing to learn from someone who already agrees with you.

Could make one if no one sells it. A simple wooden block maybe 4 - 6 inches deep might work. Use RTV silicon to attach to wood. Use masking tape to hold lcd to wood for 24 hours until hard. If you need to remove then RTV can be cut or scrapped off.

Could buy one that is meant to attach to the wall. Might have to fool with it to get it to work with your monitor.

Thanks for the ideas. One of my monitors is a no name brand and the other is a Dell. Not sure which I'd move once I get a 3rd monitor, but either way I don't see anything like what I'm looking for that the manufacturer makes. One of those extendable wall mounts could work if I reenforced the back of my desk, but I was hoping for a way simpler and cheaper 3rd party universal stand.

Building my own was kind of my last resort since it will be bulky if made from wood and will look pretty ghetto with me building it...I may go that route though. Anyone aware of any other options?

The thinnest you could get is a 1/16 sheet metal plate and add an attachment block. Or fabricate a mount attached to the shelf above.

Along that idea you might be able to turn your monitor upside down and attach to the above shelf.

I would try Velcro strips. Attach one strip to the bottom of the monitor and the bottom of the desk. That will hold it in place along the bottom. If you have a space along the top of the monitor, run a strip from the back of the shelf to the front and let it long enough to double it up and fold it over attaching the folded strip adhesive side to adhesive side. Then attach a small strip to the back of the monitor in the same location as the hanging straps. reach behind it and press them together so the monitor stands upright. I hope I explained that so you can understand.
