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.

      You really need a Torx-capable screwdriver

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 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.

      CAUTION! CAUTION! 2015 and newer iMac - does not fit

      This will not work with the 2015 iMac so do not order. It may be that 2011 and newer are not supported, I only know that 2015 iMac does not work. Apple is ver This will not work with the 2015 iMac so do not order. It may be that 2011 and newer are not supported, I only know that 2015 iMac does not work. Apple is very lax in the options for this adapter and they are not clear what products this works with. The description says works with iMacs, but it is only the older iMacs. Apple support only says "sorry" .... no help what so ever. They seem to just smile and say "sorry stupid, you bought ... you deal with it".

      Troubles with installation...

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.
