Rental House Tested & Approved.
Our superior quality single-hinge monitor mounting systems are made from aircraft aluminum. We use only high quality knobs and levers that will last for many years. All mounts are load rated making them a top choice for professionals and rental houses. They are designed to attach to 5/8″ or 16mm male spigots that are common on most c-stands. Our multiple hinge locking systems and mounting options allow you to “build your own” mount, that best fits your individual needs.
Preferred Choice for Digital Imaging Technicians & Mobile Carts
“Upgrade Innovations ball lock monitor mounts are absurdly solid. I’ve tried every mount possible from film business stalwarts to the workplace ergonomics industry. There really is no comparison: the design and build quality of the Upgrade ball lock monitor mounts are fantastic!”
"Upgrade Innovations mounts are the industry standard for robust monitor mounts that can last punishing days on set. The Ball-Loc system created by Rudy has no equal if you ask me."
“My monitors are the most critical parts to my DIT cart and their constant safety and care are a paramount concern of mine. I need to pack and unpack my monitors for every job, making quick release mounts a must-have for consistent and safe builds. Upgrade Innovations’ Ball-Loc mounts just do not move, period. That kind of strength and ease of use means I don’t have to stress about monitor safety, freeing me to focus on the creative work I love doing.”
"The Upgrade Innovations Quick Release Ball-loc monitor mount is everything I need in a monitor mount. Strong, adjustable, rigid, light and the quick release plate allows me to fit two Sony PVM-A250 monitors in the same size case that I previously kept only one."
“I once had my cart dip into a rabbit hole and fall over. My monitors did not budge thanks to these mounts. As a commercial DIT I need to be ready for anything. These mounts give me more options on set and make location moves a breeze."
“The ball-loc monitor mounts are a must have in my opinion. I paired them with the quick release plates - I never worry about my monitors loosening and tilting down because of friction. From keeping my 25" monitors mounted on my cart to process trailer days, the ball-loc mounts never let me down making sure my monitors are secured well”
"Upgrade's Ball-Loc mounts are the only VESA-to-pin product I trust. Get the best, forget the rest!"
"I've used the Upgrade Innovations Ball-Loc Monitor Mounts on all 4 of my Inovativ Carts for years now. They can always be counted on in the most demanding situations to stay locked in place never moving, keeping my monitors safe and secure. I especially like using them with the quick release plates allowing me to quickly mount or unmount monitors for travelling."
QR – Quick Release VESA Monitor Plate
Upgrade your Upgrade Innovations VESA Monitor Mount to 5/8″ Spigot with Quick Release compatibility to keep setup and take-down time to a minimum.
Our rosette style ball-lock is a positive locking system that comes with heat treated ball bearings embedded in the locking surface, with a lock index of 15 degrees. Models coming with this system will have a superior hold for heavier loads and long term use, on mobile carts, follow vehicles or trucks. This system is best for when static and dynamic forces are at play.
Quick Release Monitor Plate
The slim VESA Quick Release Monitor Plate fits to the back of your VESA 75/100mm monitor taking up little space, only adding 10mm/0.39″. This allows you to use much smaller storage/transport cases while keeping setup and take-down time to a minimum.
QR Locking Latch and Safety Thumbscrew
Secure monitor with a locking latch that has a “hold open” option, as well as a safety thumbscrew screw.
Recessed VESA Patterns
Spacers and longer M4 mounting screws are provided because mounting surfaces and the final mounting method may vary, such as recessed mounting patterns.
Supports broadcast & production quality monitors up to 77 lb/35kg.

Different models, different functionality
The MMS09 has multiple models to fit your needs. Choose between our four VESA Monitor Plates to provide Standard, Landscape/Portrait and/or Quick Release functionality.
Our monitor mounts are built to last, so we designed a system that allows for you upgrade your mounts in case your needs change. No need for Quick Release at the moment? Work off your current budget and upgrade your mount with a different VESA Monitor Plate at a future date.
