Custom Slim (6-inch Depth) Monitor Hood

  • Reduces screen glare and eye fatigue
  • Shades from ambient overhead and side/window lighting
  • Aids in color calibration consistency
  • Increases privacy - Helps keep information on your screen private
  • Professional, thoughtful design that is easily installed or removed
  • Allows for better concentration from busy environments
  • Keeps your screen cleaner, less dusty.
  • Made in the USA
Our new design features include:
  • New slimmer-looking design
  • Improved exterior material durability
  • Stronger elastic attachment cord
  • Small notch on each side to access USB ports

This fully-assembled, easy-to-install monitor hood creates a shaded environment for your screen, offering serious anti-glare and privacy protection, which is ideal for those involved in color-critical work. The eight ¼-inch depth effectively keeps private information safe from onlookers, providing an excellent accessory in testing, banking, and medical facilities.

At the core of our monitor hoods is a high-density fiberboard, the outside covering is a very tough embossed cloth material (similar to book covering) and the interior is a durable non-reflective woven material that is neutral gray. An elastic cord holds the hood in place and makes for easy installation and removal when desired. The elastic cord attachment allows for a wide range of variation of monitor shapes. Rigid plastic strips on the front edges provide reinforcement, protection, and a finished look. These hoods are intended for indoor type usage.

Monitor Hoods are made in-house, and we provide all of the essential items needed for simple no-hassle installation, including bumper buttons for positioning, foam strips for cushioning and light blocking, and detailed installation instructions.

This custom monitor hood ships flat, ready to be unfolded and the elastic cord attachment is pre-installed and ready to be mounted. (Also see installation video on adjacent tab).

  1. Monitor hoods do not block light coming from behind the viewer or eliminate reflections in rooms with excessive lighting.
  2. If your monitor has heat exhausting vents along the top edge, a hood will block these vents unless you use something to lift the hood slightly.

Slim Hood for LG Ultrafine 5G
Harry Z.
Verified Buyer
I am very pleasantly surprised with my new PhotoDon Custom Slim Hood for my new LG UltraFine 27" 5G Monitor! I wasn't sure what to expect from a custom hood, as a searched endlessly on the inter web for a hood for my monitor 'till no avail until I found Photodon. I could do it all online, submitting the factory measurements for the monitor I got off the LG website, and about a week or so later my hood arrived, and fits perfectly! It allowed enough light to be taken off my screen, the slim version, that I could finally use my Spyder screen calibrator. Love the hood, the instruction set up video on their site was very helpful to confirm I set it up correctly. Would recommend strongly.
Thanks, Harry! The hood should last you for years to come.

Pros: Stable, Eliminates glare, Easy to set up Cons: None
I ordered the mini custom to the size of my ASUS PA249Q 24 inch monitor. I provided both the A length and the shorter than stock B length. It came pre-assembled. All I had to do was place the rubber stick-on stoppers to the inside of the hood to keep the hood properly in place. The mini size is perfect for what I wanted ? glare elimination, but not so big as to allow others to look in and give me their opinion as to some Photoshop adjustments I was working on. The hood does not impede the side USB ports or the front panel control buttons. I did not order the optional calibration door. As the hood is held on elastically, I easily used a Spyder4 to calibrate the monitor by carefully feeding the USB cord up between the monitor and the hood.

Pros: Works as advertised - fair price. Cons:
Depending on your monitor it make take some creativity to get it mounted properly. I had to use some of those removable self stick velcro picture hangers from Walmart to get by the depth of the frame around my ViewSonic monitor but well worth the effort. I do astrophograpy for a hobby which requires a lot of photo processing. The hood greatly reduces my eye strain and helps me concentrate on what I'm doing.

Pros: Fits great on my monitor Cons: Assembly instruction pics could have been a little more clear
I like the product very much and I especially love how I recieved a microfiber cloth with it! My only prob was it's hard to tell the sizes off the Internet and now I wish I got one with a bigger depth cause my computer is right next to a window
