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.

A very good service and product
I needed a Monitor Hood for my screen. The model and size were not offered by default. It has been very easy to communicate with the PhotoDon Team: I sent the precise screen size, I was confirmed it was possible to create a custom monitor hood. A week later, I received it. It works great, it fit perfectly my monitor, and it was very easily to install it. A really great product and service!
Note From Store Owner: Oh thank you very much for your review, Sara! We're happy you like your monitor hood and hope you enjoy it for a long long time!

Works as stated
I purchased a custom hood for my 32" LG Monitor. I purchased the slim model and am very happy with it. I probably should have purchased the standard size, but this one works well. It is very easy to install and the measurements are spot on right. The order was processed and received in a few days. The product was well packed for shipment and I commend this organization. They say what they do and they do what they say. Very commendable these days.\n\nPlease do not publish my email address.
Note From Store Owner: Thomas, thank you so much for taking time to write a review about us and your monitor hood. We appreciate the positiveness and know that you'll be happy with that hood for a long long time. Thanks again!

Awesome custom hood
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!!!
Note From Store Owner: 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!

Awesome hood
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.
Note From Store Owner: We're so glad the hoods are working out for you! Thanks for the feedback.

Very good product, custom product available, fast delivery, excellent customer service

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!
Note From Store Owner: Thanks for the feedback on your hood experience, David! We appreciate it.
