      It fits perfectly!

But, I bought and created a little video showing how it's installed. It does fit just fine, but I can see why it might seem like it doesn't fit. Search for "Apple VESA Mount Adapter Unboxing and Install" on YouTube. I can't post the link here.

      Unsurprisingly excellent design

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.

VESA mount is quite flush to the back of the monitor so does not strain the pivot of the arm more than needed with such heavy monitors Removing stand and adding mounts to all 3 monitors went smoothy, but does take about 15 minutes work per monitor.

      Troubles with installation...

      I initially bought this because I wanted to mount my 27 inch iMac (2011 model) and my 27 inch benq gaming monitor on a dual mount. However there were two obstic I initially bought this because I wanted to mount my 27 inch iMac (2011 model) and my 27 inch benq gaming monitor on a dual mount. However there were two obsticales. First the mount is insanely difficult to install. It is clearly impossible with the provided hardware. I ended up stripping the included screws and bending the Allen wrenches. I had to go to my local hardware store to pick up a proper t10 torq wrench and some replacement screws. I found it also nessesary to remove the two rubber bumpers to even get it screwed down enough to get the side bolts to line up. Once I finally got the adapter installed, I then realized that the iMac, at around 30lbs was way too heavy for the mount that I bought. You need a seriously expensive mount for something this heavy. This was an oversight on my part. But the installation of this adapter should have been a lot easier than it was ... I ended up putting the original stand back on until I find a better dual screen mount.

      Deeply Frustrating Installation

Apple provides you with an "Access Card" which, theoretically, can be wedged between an iMac's existing stand and the top of the entry slot for that stand. Not only could I not wedge the card in the tight space provided for it, but the card won't trip the spring no matter how hard I try. I can occasionally hear clicking inside as though I'm catching something, but I've been unable to expose the screws. I just purchased two 27" iMacs and I cannot trip the spring on either one of them. I'm installing a mount. A simple mount. I should not be this difficult. This is definitely one Apple product which fails the company's standard of, "it just works."

      Doesn't include the 4 corner screws

      I moved into an office where the desk had a Knoll swing arm with a VESA mount already installed. I wanted my monitor a few inches higher, so I got one of these I moved into an office where the desk had a Knoll swing arm with a VESA mount already installed. I wanted my monitor a few inches higher, so I got one of these mounts to attach the swing arm to the monitor. There are 4 threaded holes in the back of the VESA Mount Adapter Kit which connect the adapter to the VESA mount, but no screws included for these holes. So after removing the stand and attaching the mount (which takes a while) I'm stuck because there are no screws included for actually attaching the mount to anything. Looks like I'm going to have to remove the mount and reattach the stand until I can go to a hardware store to find some screws.
