Looking at all of the different components and installation hardware for the Z2-3D you might think that installation would be very hard, but actually it is not too bad.
To start things off you are going to want to attach the desk clamp to the base. This is done by securing the two together with four M6 hex screws. At this time it is probably a good idea to attach the AC adapter for the USB hub.
Next you’ll want to attach the clamp to your desk. Be sure that is is tight, you do not want it falling off during your installation.
Find the pole and screw it into the base. You’ll notice a hex bolt down near the base. Be sure to tighten it to lock in the pole.
Now it is time to attach the mounting head to the gas spring arm. This is done by using the allen screws and nuts. Do this for both arms, be sure you have the allen screws as tight as they can go.
Take the pole clamp and slide it over the pole. Tighten it to the height where you think you might want your monitors to be. Of course you can always adjust it. Then slide the dual pole connector over the pole. It has a hex bolt it in to lock it in place as well.
Once you get to this point you have two options. You can either attach the arms directly, or attach the extension arms, then the main arms. Here is what the two setups would look like.
I decided to go with the extension arm option. So I will find have to install the extension arms on the dual pole connector. I actually found it easier to remove the dual pole connector from the main pole. This is because you screw the extension arms in from the bottom. I also decided to attach my screens to the main arms. It is much easier to mount your displays this way compared to trying to do it when you have your arms installed.
Now all you have to do is place the main arms on the extension arms and you are all set. Be sure to set the displays where you want them and then tighten the hex screws on all of the different connections.
Both of the arms have cable management built in. There are little clips that allow you to easily route your cables down to the back of the Z2-3D.
