Sturdy and Secure Bracket
on 20 December 2011
I bought this item after placing an order for a new HD TV. My plan was to mount it on a wall. The bracket itself is solid and constructed from quality materials. I am happy to say that I successfully fitted the bracket and we are now enjoying the TV as planned.
On the down side, the bracket is very heavy. The packing was in tatters when delivered - clearly not adequate for such a weighty item. Having previously checked reviews, like a previous purchaser, I partly dismantled the bracket, making it more manageable but it was still a handful to mount and assemble. I had to widen one of the tilting sections which was too narrow to do its intended job. I also found, on removing the bracket from its packaging, that although the attached spirit level is a good idea, it only helps if the bracket is built true and square. Mine was not and so ignoring the spirit level, I had to compensate by mounting it at a slight angle to ensure a level TV once it was attached.
Hope this helps someone. Would I buy this again? Yes, mainly because of its sturdy build - my TV is securely mounted but quality control during manufacture has clearly to be improved.
