Custom Office Monitor Hood

  • 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.
Comparing Monitor Hoods to Screen Protectors:
Monitor Hood Pros - The benefits of a monitor hood versus an anti-glare screen protector
Regarding 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.
Regarding 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.
Regarding 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 48 inches for office hoods, and up to 96 inches for indoor-outdoor hoods.. 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.

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.

Great Company and Product
I was looking to buy a monitor hood for a new Apple Display and was a bit unsure if the standard products would fit. I submitted a question and description of my monitor with my order. The PhotoDon team quickly replied and suggested a custom build which would be a better fit. I received it quickly and set it up without a problem. The quality seems solid and I am very happy with the end product. Bottom line, PhotoDon took the time to verify what I needed. They provided a solution that was a perfect item fit. I would recommend their products 100% and geek a thank you to sales/support for the great service.
Note From Store Owner: Hi, Jason. Thank you so much for this review. We appreciate that you recognize our efforts to ensure your satisfaction! We hope you enjoy your Apple's new hood for a long time and thank you for being willing to recommend us.
