You're reckless. Your desk can explode and kill you.
You're kidding right? Why would it explode?

it's a 1cm glass panel that you have placed the full weight of you setup at a single point and then clamped it and extended the weight with monitor arms (like hold your arm out with a heavy book in your hand). When tempered glass breaks it does "explode" into tiny pieces. Those tiny pieces are safer than big glass shards from non-tempered glass, but they're still glass and sharp. When, not if, this happens everything on your desk will come crashing down. He's not kidding.

Ya, remove those monitor mounts ASAP. Use wall mounts instead if you're against a wall.

I didn't include the "extender" arms as it protrudes too much, but OK you guys convinced me. Will be removing this after work this evening.

Thanks for the safety advice RFD!

Just so you know, tempered glass is stronger than regular glass. But the tempering process also makes it more brittle (less flexible). Which means, once the bending limit is exceeded, the glass will shatter in a spectacular fashion. If there is any impact load on the glass (eg. if you bang the top of the monitor), you risk shattering the whole desktop. This is exasperated by the fact that the monitor stand is mounted via a clamp, which places high load on a small contact surface before you even bang the monitor.

You can try to place an 8" X 8" X 1/2" wood board between the desk surface and the clamp face (both top and bottom). This will distribute the load over a larger surface and reduce the risk of shattering. However, this doesn't look as good.

If I bought this reinforcement plate, would you still advice that I avoid mounting it onto my tempered glass desk?

Does it make sense to use 1 mount for monitor and 1 mount for keyboard tray then you have a sit stand desk for cheap?

If both top and bottom plates are 0.1" thickness I would say it's good. Just remember, this is for normal use where someone may tap the top of the monitor. The steel plates will help distribute the load. But if someone grabs the mounting pole and tries to bend it, the table will still shatter. There are lots of examples of that in pro basketball where glass backboards shatter when someone slam dunks.

Code's not working. Deal dead? Work just gave me a new monitor with the with the worst stand ever.

Is this a good deal for single arm? $45.99 - $20 (Free shipping)
https://www.amazon.ca/Single-Monitor-Mo ... B07T4JD7CV
Is it better to have multiple single monitor arms or 2/3 in one?

There's also this dual arm for $59.99 - $20.
https://www.amazon.ca/Dual-Monitor-Stan ... B087LS8ZRV

Lastly, can I safely ignore the size limit if my monitor is within the weight limit? (I have a 32" monitor)

I think that's the same system as the dual arm I bought. Works really good, I would recommend it. Great price with $20 off too

A lot of the reviews say it has trouble holding up monitors below the weight limit despite tightening the arm up. But maybe I'll just roll the dice and see how it goes.

These things struggle at their limits. You’re wasting your time and money exceeding the stated limit.

I found arms from shoppingall are better choice. Little bit expensive through band name sounds awkful. Available at amazon.
