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).


Notes:
  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.

This monitor hood is the best add-on to my workspace I have ever purchased. It is inexpensive, easy to install, and blocks all the overhead and side glare from the office lights. Since installing it my headaches have ceased and my eye fatigue is far less than it used to be.
Thank you for such a glowing review, Tom! It makes us happy to know that we're helping you with your eye fatigue and headaches!

Pros: easy set up, secure Cons: none
The monitor hood arrived quickly, set up was very easy, and the structure is very secure. I ordered mine with the calibration tool window on top, and it works great for that purpose.
Thanks for the feedback, Terri! We hope you have many years of good usage of the hood.

Pros: Fit and Easy Installation Cons: None that I can discern
I customized the length, and even with that, the delivery was pretty quick. Took it out of the box and followed instructions to mount it to my monitor. Went on easily and I didn't even need the little buttons or foam strip they include with the hood. It all just worked.

Pros: Easy to take on and off Cons:
I have a lovely bright office with a view of the garden but sometimes the glare on my screens made it uncomfortable to work. The Photodon hoods have made a huge difference. Because they stay on even when not secured, it means I can take them off when the weather is cloudy (thereby improving my view of the garden) and put them on when the glare is very bright (thereby making sure I can continue working even on those rare occasions when it is sunny in England ;)

Pros: Easy to assemble Cons: n/a
We have been replacing our old floppy fabric hoods with these sleek and effective custom hoods from Photodon for a while now, and will continue to order them as we add to our staff. Some of the monitor models that we have are not sold new anymore, meaning manufacturer hoods are also not available - but these hoods beat the manufacturer's anyway!

Pros: Works exactly as advertised Cons: None
Easy to install. Fits snuggly. I have the 8 inch hood and it could be even deeper for my purposes. If a deeper one becomes available I may replace this one.

Pros: Protects against glare Cons: Could be even deeper
I bought the 8.5" deep hood to protect against glare. It could be even deeper, so I wouldn't recommend the 6" deep hood. As apposed to the review by Athenian, I wouldn't say that the installation was particularly tricky, although I agree that precise measurement of your monitor width is necessary.

I needed a shade for my laptop to use in the AZ sunshine. It looks better in person. It installed quickly, and I could easily see the entire screen. Highly recommended!

Pros: works Cons: hard to install
Measure your monitor precisely when you order because they construct the hood to fit. I wrongly assumed I would be able to adjust the width. Installation was not easy to figure out, but once I figured it out it stays on well.

I had a problem attaching the hood to my LCD monitor. A phone call away was a real person on the end of the line whose quick understanding solved the issue I had. Great support!

Pros: clean finish Cons: attachment to monitor
My only problem is with the attachment of the hood> either I can't read instructions or they are not clear. I finally mounted it on my flate panel after specking to customer service, but it is still unstable and snaps off the screen every so offen.
