3.0 out of 5 stars A good product BUT BE VERY CAREFUL WHICH TV YOU'RE GOING TO USE IT WITH, 24 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Invision® TV Wall Mount Bracket - New Slim Line Design With Cantilever Arm Tilt & Swivel Feature For 26 - 55 inch TV Screens, Fits LED, LCD & Plasma, Max VESA 400mm x 400mm (Please check TV VESA Mounting Holes Before Purchase) (Electronics)
This product is well constructed and sturdy BUT can have drawbacks. Don't get caught out as I was.

Because the product was sold as suitable for TVs from 26 inches upwards, I ordered it for use with a Samsung 28 inch LED TV (UE28F4000AW) and ran into some problems. Samsung TVs up to 28 inches must be fixed to a wall mount kit using M4 x 25mm long screws that comply with VESA standard screw specifications. This wall bracket is supplied ONLY with M5, M6 and M8 screws of various lengths, so the first thing to check is what screws fit your TV. Obviously I had to find some suitable screws.

I planned to use this TV with Freeview and it works very well. ANOTHER BUT...Samsung have thoughtfully? sited the RF aerial socket (conventional aerial) approximately 55mm from the nearest of the VESA mounting screws. This means that the backplate of this product obstructs the socket. This only applies to the RF aerial socket no others are affected. Rather than muck about returning the thing I cut a notch out of the backplate, but not everyone will be comfortable doing this. I would advise a careful check on the siting of the various sockets in the back of the TV before ordering.

The product is secured to the wall with 4 hefty 80mm hexagonal headed screws. A 12mm spanner (not supplied) or ring socket is required to tighten these. If you're fixing to a solid masonry wall a 10mm masonry drill is needed for the plugs (which are supplied).

Hi Leslie,

Thank you for you recent purchase and comments, sometimes with smaller TVs this issue will happen if the brackets VESA adapter plates are mounted as in the picture, we have designed this bracket to be able to over come this issue upon installation, to do this it is quiet easy and requires the 400x400 winged adapter plates to be moved to a different arrangement which will avoid covering any previously covered RF aerial socket, if you mount the VESA adapter plates vertically as in the picture and this issue occurs, the two plates that are mounted vertically can be switched round and be mounted horizontally which will leave any covered sockets uncovered, there are also a wide variety of holes drilled in the plates so that both plates can be moved closer together or further apart. I hope this helps, also it is always best to contact us first with any fitting issue as we have tried and tested this bracket with thousands of different TVs over the years and this particular design is constantly being improved to maintain a 99.9% compatibility rating. I can confirm that the bracket now includes M4, M5, M6 and M8 bolts there is also a small ring spanner included in the pack although a ratchet socket set (or a socket attached to a drill) will be far quicker when fixing the wall bolts in to concrete or wood.

if any customers reading this post and have have any fitting issues please contact us on invision.one@gmail.com and we will be happy to help we have a huge range of mixed bolts and extra NON-VESA adapter kits that will help resolve any mounting issues to make sure this bracket fits.

Again thank you for your comments and if you have been inconvenience by this please get it touch and we will be more than happy to resolve any outstanding issues with this purchase.

Best regards

Invision Customer Service Team
