Inadequate design strength in tilt mechanism
on 1 January 2013
In my opinion, there is insufficient design strength in the screen tilt mechanism (horizontal axis).
An M5 Stainless Cap Bolt(probably Grade 8.8) is used to pinch the bracket. This is adequate for the purpose. However, it is screwed into a tapped thread in a punched hole in the thin structural steel plate. This weak thread tapping was stripped when trying to secure a 32" flat screen TV (VESA 200x200). Unfortunately, purchasers are only likely to discover this weakness when they have already mounted the bracket to the wall.
The good news is that it is easily fixed by using a stainless M5 nut or lock-nut (not supplied in the kit, but easily obtainable from DIY retailers).
I suggest that the manufacturers modify the design for a stronger pinch mechanism using a locknut. In the meantime, I can still recommend the bracket to anyone prepared to buy a pack of M5 nuts at the same time.
