Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Extra monitors, so called 7th or 8th monitor, mounted on the Monitor Ceiling Suspension (MCS), might disengage from the MCS and fall down. The two small set screws securing the two gliding rods into an aluminum block of the support arm can come loose because of vibrations and forces exerted on them. If the set screws have come loose gravity can keep the rods in position. However, if a force is exerted on the monitor pushing it forward, the monitor can topple forward. Once the monitor has toppled over it is only attached with its wires. If the monitor breaks loose of its wires it will drop on the floor.
