    Custom Monitor Hoods

    • 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.

    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.

    I have a 34” curved Alienware AW3418DW / AW3418HW editing monitor and I ordered a custom made hood. I couldn’t be happier with the excellence of this company. From Drew in customer service which is outstanding to the actual product quality which is superb. It is very light and constructed incredibly well. It was so easy to install and adjust to fit. It only took minutes to snap it on and to micro adjust. I love this product. Shipping was fast and packaged so well. I recommend this product because it does exactly what it’s made for. It blocks out residuITal light from all angles and lessens eye strain. Great product!!!
    David, we're happy you've been able to experience how our monitor hoods block out the light and help with eye strain. It's great to hear that it fit your Alienware AW3418DW / AW3418HW so well and was easy to install. Thanks for the positive feedback!

    Pros: easy to install, fits great, good quality material Cons: none
    Hood works beautifully & was easy to install after watching the instructional video. They stayed in place during outdoor use over the weekend too. Customer service was excellent, going above & beyond expectations to make sure I had the exact items/sizes I needed. Will definitely order again if I need more hoods in the future.
    We're so glad the hoods are working out for you! Thanks for the feedback.

    Pros: Ease of installation. Matte black interior. Adjustability. Cons: None for me
    I ordered the Custom Standard for my HP w2558hc monitor. As advertised it took me only a few minutes to install and get everything just right. For blocking out nearby lights while doing photo-processing, this is just perfect. It eliminates all the glare from a nearby window at certain times of day. I also got the color calibrator window built into the top so I can use my Spyder monitor calibrations very easily. I love it!
    Thanks for the feedback on your hood experience, David! We appreciate it.

    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!

    Athenian(Athens, Ga, USA.)
    Verified Buyer
    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.

    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.
