WARNING:

*To reduce the risks associated with magnets and implanted medical device interference which, if not avoided, could result in serious injury or death: magnetic attachment bracket contains high strength magnets. Keep away from implanted medical devices to help prevent interference, as medical devices such as implanted pacemakers and defibrillators might contain sensors that respond to magnets when in close contact. Consult your medical professional for information specific to your medical device and whether you need to maintain a safe distance of separation between your medical device and the magnetic attachment.

Installation instructions for 3M™ COMPLY™ Privacy Filter Attach Solutions

3M™ COMPLY™ Magnetic Attach for Monitors

  • - [Instructor] Today we'll show you how to apply 3M brand Privacy Filters with the 3M brand COMPLY brand Magnetic Attach for Monitors. This Comply Attach System is specially designed for flat-front glass displays, and allows you to quickly and easily switch from world-class privacy to screen sharing thanks to ultra strong magnets that click securely into place. Let's get started. Make sure you have a clean, flat surface to work on. Your package contains a privacy filter, two quick-click brackets, and two monitor bars. Depending on your style of privacy filter, it might have two different sides such as glossy and matte black. So line up the filter to your screen and determine which side you want visible to you. We'll attach the quick-click brackets to that side. Let's start with the monitor bars. Peel off the blue liner, avoid touching the adhesive, and adhere the monitor bar on the top of the monitor body. About one inch from the outside edge, and as close to the front edge of the monitor as possible. The closer the monitor bars are to the front edge, the more secure the attachment will be. Repeat with the other monitor bar. Next, let's attach the quick-click brackets. Each bracket has a domed top, and a clear plastic tab. The top houses ultra strong rare earth magnets that will attach the filter flush against your screen by attaching it to the monitor bars you just placed on top of your monitor. The clear plastic tabs will attach to your privacy filter and hold it against your screen. To attach the quick-click brackets for the best fit, we will line up your privacy filter over the active display of your monitor, then put the quick-click bracket into place letting the magnet do the work. First, peel the liner off the brackets and avoid touching the adhesive. Line up your filter over the active display of the screen and hold it in place with one hand. Then, snap the bracket in place pressing the adhesive to the filter. If your monitor has a chin or ledge below the active display, you can use this to help properly align the privacy filter. To firmly attach your quick-click bracket to the privacy filter, and remove any air bubbles, pinch and squeeze the filter to the adhesive on the quick-click bracket, pushing the bubbles out to the edge. Repeat with the second quick-click bracket on the other side. Your filter should cover your active display and rest flush up against it while the brackets magnetically hold it in place. To unclick the magnetic attach and remove your privacy filter, you can grab the quick-click brackets keeping your privacy filter free of fingerprints.
