    Apple 27-inch Thunderbolt Monitor Hood

    Office 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

    This monitor hood is built specifically for the Apple 27-inch Thunderbolt monitor! It measures 25.7" horizontally (65cm) and 15" vertically (38.1cm) and is 8.25" deep (20.9cm). (Slim Hoods = 6" depth 15.2cm)

    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).

    These hoods are custom made for the monitor noted in the title, but can be readjusted in width, larger or smaller, to fit your next screen with a few minor adjustments. Custom hoods are available to fit monitors not already listed on our website, up to 46" wide, see our custom hood page:

    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.

    Monitor Hood Pros and Cons

    Is a monitor hood or an anti-glare film right for you? Here are some ideas to consider as you make a decision.....

    Monitor Hood Pros - The benefits of a monitor hood versus an anti-glare screen protector
    Image Clarity A monitor hood cuts down glare without compromising image clarity. while high anti-glare screen protectors can cause pixeling and decreased image clarity.
    Color Calibration A monitor hood allows for accurate color calibration. while anti-glare films can cause decreased image quality and may inhibit proper color calibration.
    Privacy Monitor hoods provide an ideal amount of privacy for computers adjacent to each other. while standard anti-glare films do not provide privacy. However we do have Privacy Filters as well to help with privacy issues.
    Eye Fatigue & Glare Reduction In Ambient Light A monitor hood aids eye fatigue and glare reduction by eliminating ambient light from overhead and side light sources. Anti-glare screen protectors allow for glare reduction and relief from eye fatigue, but do not reduce ambient light from hitting the screen.
    Monitor Hood Cons - When a screen protector makes better sense than a monitor hood
    Size Hoods are limited in size to monitors and TVs up to 46 inches. while anti-glare screen protectors are available for all flat screens up to 100” diameter.
    Protection A monitor hood does not shield a screen’s surface, therefore cannot prevent scratches or smudges. while screen protectors shield screen from scratches, smudges and other wear and tear.
    Outdoor Use The high-quality material used on Photodon's monitor hoods is meant for indoor use only. We are a custom shop, and want to help find your solution. Please contact [email protected] if you are in need of an outdoor monitor hood.

    Hood Options

    Dual Monitor Hood:

    Our adjustable Dual Monitor Hood option covers two identical monitors side by side. The angle of the screens is adjustable from straight across and up to 45-degrees.

    Calibration Door:

    The calibration door option is for professional persons who calibrate their monitors. The calibration process ensures the color seen on the screen is the same as it will be when printed either in-house or at another facility. The sliding door size is 3" x 2.25" and is available for all 8.25" hoods.

    Slim Hoods:

    The slim monitor hood provides a reduced depth option at 6-inches from front to back, lighter weight, but same professional design and attachment.

    super duper
    I just received and installed the PhotoDon hood for my Apple Thunderbolt Display and it fit PERFECTLY, no adjustment needed. As they say in the video and the tiny instruction sheet that comes with the product, there was a little gap at the top along one side, due to the interlocking plates of the top shelf. Easily dealt with; the foam strip closed that gap completely. I didn't install the two L-brackets because when I stuck one to the inner surface of the top, it created another air gap. The heck with it, I just hope the cat doesn't think this is a shelf to sit on! Highly recommended.
    Note From Store Owner: Thanks, Michael. Product warning: These are NOT cat proof :)

    I spent a long time trying to find a monitor hood/shield that was the appropriate size for our 27-inch Apple Thunderbolt displays.\n\nI could find iMac hoods, and I could find 27-inch hoods for other monitors...but since the Apple 27-inch Thunderbolt Display is ACTUALLY 29 inches wide when you include the black perimeter, nothing worked! \n\nI was about to give up and try to build one myself when I found PhooDon. We ordered this and it immediately fit perfectly. We didn't even have to assemble it...just unfolded the thing and put it right on! PhooDon includes foam and adhesive supplies to help secure it, but I've found we don't need--it works perfectly as-is.\n\nPLUS the monitor hood is adjustable. So if for some reason it didn't fit straight out of the box, I'm positive we'd still have been able to make it work.\n\nNo unwanted light comes in from the sides, and the hood stays attached securely without a problem.
    Note From Store Owner: We're glad we could help!

    Not a cheap option, but it does fit and works well. The small sticky buttons keep popping off, but I can live with a thin chord going across the bottom of the computer.

    Product was easy to assemble although it was not long enough to shield the glare. Nice fit. Expensive.
