Articulating Arm Review Sep 08, 2005
By Ellen J. Jurczak
The wall mount is fine but was somewhat difficult for one person to install - the TV is difficult to attach. Also, it wasn't described very well and the dimensions were not included. I didn't know how it was going to fit or work until I received it. It would also be nice if there was some way to attach the TV cables to the arm or route them through the arm so they don't show. Now that I have mounted it, I like it.

Excellent Product Dec 27, 2006
I just installed this about 4 hours ago. It took me an hour, even with my drill's batteries needing a charge. The trick is to follow the instructions. I looked around at many wall mounts and this was the best choice. It is recommended to mount it into a stud. Luckily in order for it to be centered on the wall I needed a stud approximately 16 inches to the left/right, and there was one there. It gives you offset holes to screw into a stud if you absolutely need it to be in a particular location.
1 - Find Stud/Location to hang wall mount
2 - Place wall mounting bracket on the wall and mark drill hole.
3 - Using a 3/16" drill bit drill about 1 1/2 inches into the stud
4 - Screw long wood screw into the wall bracket/stud using a low speed drill.
5 - Approximately level vertically using a bubble level. Mark slotted hole and drill 3/16" hole again 1 1/2 inches deep into the stud.
6 - Screw long wood screw into the wall bracket/stud using a low speed drill until there is just enough play to move the bracket so it can be leveled finally.
7 - Level wall bracket vertically using level and tighten both screws.
8 - Finish inserting the last two screws.
9 - Follow the instructions on the sheet for the rest. Be sure to install the break mechanism that is supplied with the device. It really works well and you can tighten the stiffness of both arms.
I left the front tilt screws just loose enough that I can place the LCD at any tilt without it falling all the way forward. I used a level to level the LCD horizontally and tightened those screws pretty good so it wouldn't lean on me.
It looks great and I can sit in my kitchen and pull it from the wall and angle it towards me, or I can sit on the couch and have it tight against the wall.
I'm going to look into zip tying the wires to the arm.

Works for me Jul 27, 2006
By Tyler Forge
Simple and does the job. No surprises. I had no trouble setting it up by myself. The trick is putting the TV on the arm before putting the arm into the wall mount. Gravity does all the work that way.

Good quality, but poor instructions for mounting Feb 13, 2009
By That Lake Girl
Constrution of this TV mount seems good and it is sturdy. The instructions for mounting are very poor (this coming from an engineer's viewpoint). Make sure you will be able to mount to a stud before purchasing this product. Once it was finally on the wall, we were pleased with the performance. It has many easy adjustments for different viewing angles. Also, it is sometimes difficult to tell from the verbage, but it is compatible with 200x100 VESA configuration.
Awesome! Aug 26, 2013

Bought this for my daughter. She wanted to mount her TV, but not have a limited range of movement. This mount definitely fit the bill. Quick and easy to install. Received quicker than expected too!
