Why do I need to choose cables for my QuickStand?

One of QuickStand's best features is what we call a cable management system. This means your permanent power cables (the ones that run from your monitor and keyboard to your main computer hub) are neatly tucked away inside the QuickStand body. As a result, your desktop is cable clutter free, allowing for more desktop space and a clean look. In short, we ask you to select cables because our unique cables are designed for use within the QuickStand cable management system.

Which cables should I choose?

I see two options for securing QuickStand to my desk. Which one should I choose?

The Freestanding base, our easiest and most popular mount, is specially weighted to sit on any surface. It doesn’t require any screws or clamps on your desktop. If you prefer to keep your desk surface completely clean — and you dont mind using screws on your desk — then choose the Clamp mount option.

Note: If you choose the Clamp mount, you will have to attach it to a flat-edge surface.

Contact customer service at 1-844-264-2513 to find out which option, Freestanding or Clamp mount, is best for you.

What are the differences between the Freestanding base and the Clamp mount option?

The Freestanding base inserts into QuickStand's column and is the easiest way to convert your desk into an ergonomic sit/stand workstation. In total, it weights about 70 lbs.

The Clamp mount clamps onto your desk. So, if you want to switch the QuickStand to another part of the desk, or even to a new desk, you just have to unscrew the mount before you move it, then screw it back into place when you find a good spot. That's it!

How do I attach QuickStand using a clamp mount?

Access the step-by-step QuickStand Installation Instructions. Our illustrations help you see exactly how the attachment process works. You can also watch the QuickStand installation video.

Will the clamp mount fit my desk?

The clamp mount can be adjusted to fit desks with a depth of 24–30" and a thickness of 2.75".

What happens if I buy a second screen down the line?

You can convert your QuickStand to hold two monitors if you decide to add a second one later on. Call or email Humanscale customer service to purchase a conversion kit. Once you recieve the kit, you simply add a few screws and then adjust the tension mechanism so it can support the additional weight. You can also purchase one of our specially designed cables to connect the monitor to our cable management system. Contact customer service and they will tell you which one you need for your setup.

If I buy the DVI cable harness, can I update to a HDMI cable?

Yes, and you have two options to choose from to do so:

  • 1. Buy an adapter from DisplayLink
  • 2. Purchase a new cable harness from Humanscale
For further help please call 1-844-264-2513.
