This monitor hood is built specifically for the Apple 27-inch iMac rls 2009 monitor! It measures 25.5" horizontally (65cm) and 17" vertically (43.1cm) and is 8" deep (20.3cm). (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.

Apple 27-inch iMac Hood
After receiving a very personable and attentive phone call follow-up to my email query, I ordered the iMac Hood. Before it arrived I watched the very helpful video on installation. The printed instructions were likewise clear and the hood was quickly and easily attached to my iMac. \n\nEverything about the hood is fantastic. The material is high quality composite and fits perfectly. Added perks are the included light blocking tape, silicon buttons to secure the elastic straps, and the neutral grey interior of the hood. This last feature has more value than you might expect. I had no idea how much ambient color was affecting my judgment. Plus it provides, as promised, a noticeable reduction in eye strain. \n\nThis hood is a great asset to my studio and one of the best upgrades I've ever made on a Mac. A well deserved five stars and an enthusiastic encouragement for you to order one for each monitor. And please know, this is a real and honest endorsement, not "fake news". I have no relationship with PhotDon other than an extremely satisfied first-time customer.
Note From Store Owner: Thanks, Ed. Happy illustrating!

Best Hood iMac on the Market
The YouTube instruction video is one of the best instruction videos I've seen. Probably because the presenter obviously knows the product so well. He comes across as having as much understanding as the designer. He also clearly, carefully - and quietly - presented all the information I needed to do a "perfect" install.\n \nBecause of his presentation, and the ease of installing it, I will recommend this hood to everyone I know who has an iMac.
Note From Store Owner: We're glad you found the videos helpful!

This hood installed easily and has stayed in place over the month that I have had it. It help significantly with glare reduction from the window, beside which my iMac sits, so the function is as described. The only drawback that I have found so far is the weight, it slowly caused my screen to tilt downward, but with the wide vying angle that the iMacs have it is just a minor irritation. I suspect all hoods would have this issue. So I would recommend this product, with that one caveat. Jim

Could not locate any hoods at all in the UK so opted for Photodon. The service was fast and efficient and the hoods are exactly what we wanted. Highly recommended.

I choose this monoitor hood after an extensive seach of the internet as it best suited my needs.I use it to aid the calibration of my computer display for photography. The hood is well made and very easy to install. It is so effective to reduce unwanted glare that I now leave it in place permanently.
