thats the spirit,
This review is from: VonHaus by Designer Habitat PREMIUM Slim TV Wall Bracket for 33 - 60 inch LCD, LED & Plasma TV. Super-strength Load Capacity up to 75KG, 15 degree Tilt mechanism up/down, Max VESA 660x450 (Accessory)
Having purchased a 46" Panasonic Plasma tv separately I did wonder about compatibility but those fears were allayed when it came to assembly and fix. Three points I would make;
One. and this point has been raised before on other review(s)the Allen key is not practical and in it's present form inadeqate, I shall get round this by cutting a piece off and inserting into a suitable socket and extension.
Two. The in-built spirit level which is not readily adjustable was wildly inaccurate and therefore not usable. I was equipped with my own and used this to first set the hangers onto the tv back at the same height [first make sure the tv is level when doing this]then set the wall plate level and at the required height.
Three. The instructions indicate that a 1/2" masonry drill is required, I would contest this and state that the better size would be 10mm, particularly if drilling into a plastered breeze block wall, using a 10mm drill in my case did not cause any hardship when fixing and I would worry about 1/2" holes.
All in all a good product and easily installed if care is taken.

Have an older panasonic tv, and like the sound of this product however the wall plate needs to be at least28inches wide?! Would this product be suitable?!

In answer to your question the wall plate is 730mm wide [28.3/4"] wide. A POINT TO NOTE. THE WIDEST FIXING HOLE POSITIONS ARE ROUGHLY 670MM centres. These slots could be elongated to perhaps 720mm centres if this helps.

Seconded. Just completed my instal. Everything was fine except the built in level - use your own!

Hi all, did you fix the the bracket onto a plaster wall? My plasma TV is 30kg and a bit worried whether the wall would support it. Should I use metal plugs or support the other side of the plaster wall by 3x2 planks of wood?

You are evidently a man/woman after my own heart-could not agree more about those christmas cracker spirit levels they insist upon fitting-not even funny,thanks for sharing your working experiences with this bracket-which otherwise seems to be very sturdy and well-designed.
