CALL NOW ! (832) 427-5026 Plasma LCD n Parts and Home Theater Install: Shows The Consumer How to choose a bracket for your TV.

Decide/Determine the size of your TV example- ( my TV is a 46 inch Flat Panel TV LCD ). If you do not know the size of your TV, you can take a measuring tape and measure the screen from corner to corner diagonally ( only the screen area not the frame ) this will tell you the size of your TV. To determine if you have a PLASMA or an LCD. Plasma has a mirrored surface and has a glare or reflection. LCD has NO reflection and is not mirrored at all. LCD can use a Flat mount bracket more often due to its lack of glare issues. Plasma will need a TILT mount bracket in more cases due to it’s glare issues.

Decide/determine at what height you will want your TV on the wall, this will determine if you need a TILT mount or a FLAT/FIXED mount. Here is some help, If you are mounting over a fireplace you will need at least a TILTING bracket to allow the TV to lean down towards you while in sitting position. If you are wanting to have your TV mounted on the wall, placing the TV at over 3.5ft. to 4.5ft. off the floor, you will need a TILT mount to comfortably watch the TV while sitting down.

When mounting the TV lower at 4ft. or below a FIXED/FLAT mount bracket will do fine, as you will not need to tilt the TV to watch comfortably.

Mounting your TV in a CORNER on the wall, you will need a CANTILEVER mounting bracket. This will allow the TV to extend away from the wall in a manor that allows the TV to turn and be set to caddy a corner. A cantilever mounting bracket can also be used to allow the TV to extend out away from the wall and turn left to right for the purpose of being viewed from more than one angle or room ( if rooms are adjacent or open ).

Tilt brackets are most used for glare and height issues.

Flat mount brackets are most used for commercial standard use or low mounted TVs or to save a few dollars, sacrificing the tilt (because they are less costly).

Cantilever mounting brackets are most used for corner mounts and to view the TV from more than one area or room.
