Jan 22

Selecting a suitable mount for your TV, how to choose a tv wall mount, TV Wall Mounts, Which wall mount is suitable for me?

For flat screen TVs There are three main kinds of television install mounts in Dallas.

  • Wall Mount that Tilts
  • Wall mount / Articulating bracket (also called full-motion wall mount)
  • Wall Mount Low Profile/Fixed

There are some things you need to consider when selecting a TV wall mount.

  • Maximum load bearing capacity VESA mount compatibility is achievable with this wall mount (4 x mounting screw holes at the rear of the TV)
  • It is important to select the type of wall where you'd like to place your TV. Examples of exterior walls are Drywall that has wood studs as well as Drywall with studs made of metallic.
  • The cables on the back of the TV are placed in this way. For example the cable connections on the back of your TV face toward the wall.

What is the VESA acronym for?

The VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association), specifies mounting arrangements for flat-screen monitors and flat-screen televisions. The majority of flat-screen TVs and monitor manufacturers have adopted the VESA mounting pattern. Televisions that are VESA-compliant feature four holes at the rear (two on the top and two on the below) to attach a VESA-compliant mounting bracket to match the VESA mount pattern.

  • Wall Mounts that Tilt

Tilting brackets provide the most compatibility, without the need for any modifications for attaching any VESA mount-compatible flat screen television or monitor.

  • Suitable for suitable for LCD, Plasma, LED, and OLED flat and curved screen TVs.
  • For any flat surface: Plaster, wood, drywall, wall studs, as well as metal studs (interior and exterior walls). Concrete, brick, tiled walls and so on.
  • Lateral Shift allows you to center your TV in nearly any situation (the TV can be moved left and right on the wall plate).
  • Most tilting wall mounts for TVs that we offer have enough space between the wall and back (between 2'' and 3.1 inches, based upon the model) and allow for a be able to reach behind the TV to allow the management of cables and connections.
  • You can tilt your TV to the side if it's placed over a fireplace.
  • If you ever need to change wiring, you may raise the TV (on the majority of models we sell) to gain even more space and access the cable connections on the rear of the TV without needing to take it off.
  • Extra-wide wall plates can be used to mount heavy televisions. Extra-wide wall plates allow you to extend three 16-inch studs apart for an overall distance of 32 inches.
  • It is ideal to use in conjunction with a component wall shelf to cover any remaining cable slacks that are behind the TV, resulting in more neat and tidy appearance.
  • The wiring behind the TV is simple to install and maintain.


  • It stands out a bit higher than Super Slim / Low-profile TV wall mounts, but it's a reasonable trade-off for all the other advantages.
  • It won't turn left or right.
  • The TV is tilted both upwards and downwards, and it also "Pops Out" at 5.7 inches, which makes it much easier to get behind the television. The pop-out function is useful when trying to reach wires behind large TVs such as a 90-inch. The pop-out feature is also beneficial when the power outlet is located right in the middle of the television. This makes it difficult to reach the outlet and disconnect the power cord.
  • Tilting is simple even on large TVs that weigh 90 inches.
  • While this mount is classified as an "Tilting" wall mount, it has the slight ability to swivel left and right.
  • The interior of the wall plate is equipped with large cutouts that can be used to cover an outlet or cable Jack.
  • Micro-level adjustment - This feature lets you adjust the TV's level after it's installed to the wall.
  • TV Wall Mounts With Full Motion

Two types of Full Motion TV Wall Mounts are available.

  • Full Motion Wall Mount with Single Stud Mounting (for smaller TVs)
  • Full Motion Wall Mount with Double Studs for heavier TVs

The following example is an example of our SKU: 1281. The articulating bracket is connected to one stud permitting smaller and lighter TVs to be used.

Wall Mount Full Motion, with Single Stud Mounting

Our SKU is 1291. Full Motion Wall Mount is used in the illustration below. This wall mount is made to be mounted on two On-Center studs of 16 inches. Double stud mounts are capable of supporting heavier loads than one mount. This makes it suitable for mounting heavier and larger televisions.

As you can observe, the wall plate section of this bracket is significantly narrower than the Tilt wall mount bracket we showed earlier (which is standard for full motion mount). It's worth noting that this mount isn't alone one with a narrow wall plate. Full motion mounts feature narrow wall plates that are able to be attached to studs not greater than 16 inches from the center. Some models can accommodate spacings of up to 24 inches.

The wall plate of most Full Motion Wall Mounts is just large enough to fit to two 16-inch studs "apart-on-center is a term which translates to "apart on the centre."


  • The swivels can be turned to the left or right
  • Compatible with LCD, Plasma, LED, OLED flat and curving screen televisions.
  • If you don't want your TV to be angled it can fold against the wall. This is great for installing in large rooms or at corners.
  • Some models can swivel 180 degrees.
  • The majority of the models we offer can be tilted downwards or up.
  • It is possible to access the cable connections at the back of your TV by pushing it away from your wall.


  • Due to the design of the wall plate that is thin, there is a limitation.
  • The majority of people don't think it feasible to position the TV in the correct middle position. This depends on where your studs are. As a result, it is not recommended to use on narrow walls or over a fireplace.
  • The majority of the time the full motion mounts weigh more than other mounts. They also stand out more.
  • While the typical spacing of studs is 16 inches across the center, it is uncommon to find stud spacing greater than 16 inches. This is especially true when the wall meets an adjacent wall perpendicularly. There are only a few full motion mounts on the market that can be installed on studs that are spaced 24 inches apart.
  • Heavy TVs shouldn't be mounted on drywall with metal studs or on most plaster exterior walls in older homes and structures.
  • Are you tempted to place your TV above the fireplace? The position of the studs will decide the possibility of placing your TV over the fireplace.

Using an Full Motion Wall Mount to Center the TV Over the Fireplace

For a full motion TV to be mounted over your fireplace, first check where the studs will be. This will allow you to know the possibility of having your TV placed over them. There is a very slim chance that your studs will be exactly where you would like them to be in order for your TV to go on your wall.
