Default Re: wall mount

Make sure you look at the VESA dimensions of the bolts in the back of your tv. Usually measured in millimeters. Also make sure the mount is for however far apart your wall studs are - most 16" but depending on where you are hanging it it could be more or less.

Other than that, do you want a flat mount, swivel, corner? I have all three throughout the house. I havent had any issues with anything by "Mount-It"

Also make sure you drill it into the studs.

Default Re: wall mount

Don't overpay for a brand name wall mount, the ones on amazon or monoprice are just fine.

Do make sure you are mounting directly into studs and throw out the bolts that come with the mount and get some good ones from Home Depot/Lowes. Also, don't just drop your cables through the wall, it is a fire hazard and often illegal, get a decent management system.

https://www.amazon.com/Cheetah-APTMM...=TV+wall+mount

(I have a 50" plasma and a older 47" LCD on that mount, both have been mounted for two years without a single issue)

https://www.amazon.com/Datacomm-50-3...wall+power+kit

You are good to go.

I grabbed one for my 55 inch (I think that’s how big it is) from Harbor Frieght Tool. It was cheep and no problems what so ever. Just be sure to mount it in a stud and it won’t go anywhere.
