How To Choose the Right Wall Mount Bracket For Your TV for Your TV

Jan 22

How do you choose the best mount for your TV. TV Wall Mounts: Which is right for you?

Flat screen televisions There are three main types of tv install mounts in Dallas.

  • Wall Mount that Tilts
  • Wall mount/Articulating bracket (also called full-motion wall mount)
  • Low-Profile/Fixed Wall Mount

When you are deciding on wall mounts for TVs, there are a few things to keep in mind.

  • Maximum capacity of load bearing VESA mount compatibility is possible with this wall mount (4 screws for mounting on the back of the television)
  • The kind of wall on which you will install your TV. Exterior walls are Drywall that has wood studs as well as Drywall with studs of metallic.
  • The cables on the rear of the television are set in this direction. To the wall, for instance, or pointing towards the side either below or forwards.

What is the VESA acronym for?

The VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association), specifies mounting arrangements for flat-screen televisions and monitors. The VESA mounting pattern is used by most producers of flat-screen televisions and monitors. VESA compatible televisions have four screws at the rear of the television (two on top and two on the bottom) to mount an VESA compatible mounting bracket that matches the VESA mounting pattern on your TV.

  • Wall Mounts that tilt

Tilting brackets offer the greatest compatibility, and do not require any modifications in order to mount any flat-screen television or monitor compatible with VESA mounts.

  • Ideal for LCD, Plasma, LED, and OLED flat and curved televisions.
  • Ideal for flat surfaces of all kinds such as drywall, plaster and wooden studs, drywall and metal studs (interior and outside wall). Tiled, brick, concrete walls, and so on.
  • Lateral Shift lets you place the TV at the center of almost any situation (the TV can be moved to the left or right on the wall plate).
  • The majority of tilting TV wall mounts that we sell offer enough clearance between the back and wall (between 2'’ and 3.1 inches, based on the model), to extend behind the TV for the management of cables and connections.
  • The TV can be tilted down if it is placed on top of a fireplace.
  • If you ever need to replace wiring, you can tilt the TV up (on all models we offer) to create more space and access the cable connections on the back of the TV without having to remove it.
  • The extra-heavy TVs are able to be mounted on wall plates with extra-wide widths. The extra-wide wall plates allow you to use up to three 16-inch-apart studs (for total length of 32 inches).
  • It could be used in conjunction with a component wall shelf to cover any cable gaps behind your TV. This will give you a cleaner look and finish.
  • The wiring that runs behind the TV is simple to set up and maintain.


  • It sticks out a little more than Super Slim / Low-profile TV wall mounts. However, that's an acceptable trade-off considering all other benefits.
  • It can't rotate left or right.
  • The TV is tilted both upwards and downwards, and it "Pops Out" at 5.7 inches, which makes it easier to reach behind the television. Pop-out is a useful feature when trying to reach the wires behind big TVs, such as a 90-inch. This is especially useful when the power outlet is located in the centre of the TV, making it difficult to reach the outlet to insert or unhook the power cord, without using the pop-out feature.
  • Tilting is easy , even on heavy TVs of 90 inches.
  • This mount is classified as a tilting wall mounted but it also has a slight swivel to left and right.
  • A large cut-out is located in the middle portion of the wall plate, which allows it to cover an electrical outlet or cable jack for example.
  • Micro-level adjustment feature allows you to change the level of your TV after it's been hung on the wall.
  • TV Wall Mounts with Full Motion

Full Motion TV Wall Mounts are available in two styles.

  • For smaller TVs for smaller TVs, Full Motion Wall Mount with Single Stud Mounting
  • Full Motion Wall Mount with Double Studs (for more powerful TVs)

This example uses our SKU 1281. The articulating bracket is attached to one stud, allowing for smaller and lighter televisions to be mounted.

Full Motion Wall Mount with Single Stud Mounting

The example below uses our SKU: 1291 Full Motion Wall Mount. This wall mount can be placed on two 16-inch On-Center studs. The double stud mount is capable of supporting more weight than one mount. This makes it the ideal choice for mounting larger and heavier televisions.

As you can see, the wall plate section is significantly smaller than the Tilt bracket (which is the most common full-motion mount). It's important to note that this mount isn't the only one that has a narrow wall plate. Full motion mounts come with narrow wall plates that can be attached to studs not larger than 16 inches from the center. A few models can accommodate stud spacings up to 24 inches.

Full Motion Wall Mounts have the wall plate sufficient to be attached to two screws of 16 inches.


  • The swivels can be turned to the left or to the right
  • This product is compatible with LCD, Plasma, LED, OLED flatand curved screen televisions.
  • If you don't wish for your TV to be tilted it can fold against the wall. This is great for installing in large rooms or in corners.
  • Some models rotate up to 180 degrees.
  • The majority of the models we offer can be tilted downwards as well as upwards.
  • You can access the cable connections on the rear of your TV by pushing it away from the wall.


  • Because of the thin wall plate design, there is a limitation.
  • In most circumstances, you won't be able to place the TV in the appropriate central position. It is dependent on the location of your studs. It's not recommended for use on walls that are narrow or above an fireplace.
  • The majority of the times the full motion mounts weigh more than other kinds of mounts. They also stand out more.
  • Although the standard stud spacing is 16 inches on centre, it's fairly uncommon to see stud spacing wider than 16 inches. This is especially true in basements or when the wall meets another wall perpendicularly on the other wall. There are a handful of full motion mounts on the market that are able to be put on studs that are spaced 24 inches apart.
  • Heavy TVs should not be placed on drywall using metal studs, or on the majority of exterior walls of older homes and structures.
  • Are you inclined to put your television above the fireplace? The location of the studs determines if you can place your TV over the fireplace.

Utilizing a Full Motion Wall Mount to center the TV over the Fireplace

If you are planning to install a full motion mounting over your fireplace, it is important to first look at where the studs are located to see if your TV can be placed over it. Since the odds of your studs being exactly where you require for your TV to be put at the center of your wall are slim to none.
