I have an Ikea desk (http://www.ikea.com/...ducts/50251350/) with metal adjustable legs (can't find them anymore on Ikea) and I just bought this desk mount (http://www2.ncix.com...anufacture=SIIG)
After receiving the mount I found it to be quite heavy, plus adding 3x 13lbs to it, my question is can my desk handle that much weight. If I try, or hit the desk, it moves quite a bit, so I am worried about that and just the overall weight.
Anyone have this type of setup, or similar?
Which leg? most ikea legs can handle 100 lb+ each, that would make it 400 lb+ in total with distributed weight, i.e not everything in one spot. Now, knowing the legs can handle the weight, we move to the top. The top is stated to handle a max load of 110 lb. The mount is 18 lbs in shipping, unpacked is probably less, say 16 lb, not that much really. Then you add 39 lb of stuff, you are still well below 110.
You could try tightening the leg screws at the top. If its still annoying for you, you can drill at the top and bottom of the legs on the back of the desk (faces wall) two holes for screws, then you can buy two metal wires of the measured length (bottom left leg to top right leg) and attach them with the new screws in an X pattern. That would put more side to side resistance and reduce the wobble.
