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 36" 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.

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.

Pros: ease of installation, looks great, does block side and top ambient light Cons:
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.
Thanks, Michael. Product warning: These are NOT cat proof :)

Pros: Fits perfectly! Super easy to use. Cons: Can't shield light coming in from the front--only the sides. (This is obvious, but I have a wind
I spent a long time trying to find a monitor hood/shield that was the appropriate size for our 27-inch Apple Thunderbolt displays. I 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! I 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. PLUS 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. No unwanted light comes in from the sides, and the hood stays attached securely without a problem.
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.
Thanks, John!

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