Is it possible to remove the stand?
Hi guys, is it possible to remove the stand? How to do that? Thx!
In theory, it is possible to remove the stand. However, it does not seem to be designed with that intention in mind. However, if your goal was to mount the display then you are in luck as there are a couple different options.
Firstly, you can buy a Mac directly from apple with a built in VESA mount adapter.
The second option is if you already have an M1 Mac. You can actually buy an adapter that fastens onto the stand itself, and acts as an adapter for VESA mounts. Theirs a video that you can watch on it here.
Can I just get the Mac without any stand? I prefer, as strange as this sounds, to slide it into a back pack and prop it up with a mini easel I have. I then plug it in at Starbucks with a wireless mouse and keypad and I am go to go, no? So, can I do this get one without the stand or somehow remove it?
@danj Dan, you say its a lot of work to remove the stand from the M1 iMac? I tried to but ran into a huge problem I cannot overcome yet. I contacted Apple Canada several times this afternoon and all I got was to ask the Genius department to install a VESA mount adaptor. I know there is a way to remove the stand because it was put there by technicians and engineers designed it.
Can you help me? The bolt has two flats on it on opposite sides. This tells me that it can be held on these flats without damaging the threads, and then unscrewed? The nut which goes on this bolt is used to adjust the tension on the swivel of the hinge. These flats allow you to remove this bolt but I will have to make a tool to allow me to do this. Also what about the other bolt? It seems to be a bolt with a cone shaped head and a threaded hole. It this to screw in a pulling bolt?
I forgot to tell you Dan, I plan on setting this monitor/iMac in a pair of desk top cellphone holders because this iMac sits on a kitchen counter and the cabinets above, with their light skirt, block 1/4 of the top of the screen. Thats why I have to remove this stand. I did this to the last iMac we have. I cut the stand in half and bolted it together in an overlapping fashion.
