This is just what you want if you’re looking to wall mount your big screen TV. I’ve been using this type of mount for years. And, hear me, this is important…this unit comes assembled. Just take it out of the box and it’s ready to mount. No assembly required.
The good. It’s well made. It can be mounted by one person…if you are experienced. It articulates easily and over a range that exceeds the mount I’m using now. All the parts are there…
Just remember to predrill your studs before you try driving the lag bolts that are used to secure the mount to the wall. And, you should use the outermost holes on the mount…they’re 16″ apart and that coinsides with the distance between stud centers.
A word of caution…if mounting to drywall, you should always find the studs, and then this mount should be screwed to the wall studs. Your TV might not seem as if it weighs much, but it can creat a lot of force when it’s pulled away from the wall, and unsupported drywall will not handle the forces generated by moving and adjusting your TV over and over.
