It does fit just fine, but I can see why it might seem like it doesn't fit.

  • You really need a Torx-capable screwdriver

    This adapter kit contains two pieces: a flange that attaches to a stub inside the monitor/iMac, and an adapter plate that attaches This adapter kit contains two pieces: a flange that attaches to a stub inside the monitor/iMac, and an adapter plate that attaches to that flange (the adapter plate is the only part pictured in the its description).

    A single Torx fastener driven through the adapter plate is actually responsible for aligning the whole assembly. It carries lots of strain and requires significant torque to install completely. If you try to torque the fastener by hand, you will strip the head. A high-torque screwdriver with Torx head is a requirement.

  • Unsurprisingly excellent design

It should be no surprise to anyon I used this to mount a Thunderbolt display to an ergonomic sit to stand arm and it worked great. It should be no surprise to anyone that follows Apple that this is a well designed product. While installing it I was struck at how much thought went into it and how well it was built.

    The installation was very smooth and painless. If you have trouble getting the holes on the sides of the flange to line up read the instructions, you have to tighten the center bolt on the adapter very tight in order to bring the plate down enough to line up the holes.

Make sure to take your time and use the correct wrenches. The ones that are shipped are very poor! BE CAREFULLY installing this.

  • Easy Install but Lack of Thought by Apple

Wh I received my two mounts today and had them installed in about 20 minutes. I have no complaints about the ease of installation. What I am disappointed about is the lack of thought by Apple with these kits. We have already paid a considerable amount for the displays, and then we drop $36 for each mount, but Apple doesn't include the mounting screws to mount the displays. They did a great job at making sure the mounts stayed with the design of the display, but to not give us the 4 screws per mount is just plain wrong. At the very least they should have something in the description that states we have to supply our own screws.

  • Torx wrench is a joke

    Like other reviewers I had trouble using the flimsy plastic card to expose the screws on the back of my 27" imac. In trying to rem Like other reviewers I had trouble using the flimsy plastic card to expose the screws on the back of my 27" imac. In trying to remove them with the included torx wrench I stripped the heads on several. Both the screws and wrench are sub-standard in quality and now I'm stuck trying to extract stripped screws.
