How To Select The Right TV Wall Mount Bracket Your TV

Jan 22

Selecting a suitable mounting for your TV, what to look for in a television wall mount, TV Wall Mounts, Which wall mount is suitable for me

For flat screen TVs there are three standard types of tv installation mounts for dallas.

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

There are some things to keep in mind when selecting a TV wall mounting.

  • This wall mount works with VESA mount compatibility, up to a maximum load bearing capacity (4 screw mounting screws that are located on the back of your television).
  • The kind of wall where you'll put your television. Drywall that has wooden studs, Drywall with studs of metal Cinder-block, Concrete, Brick, Plaster wall (Interior), and Plaster wall (Exterior) are some examples (Exterior).
  • The cables on the back of the TV are oriented in this way. For example the cables on the back of your TV are directed towards the wall.

What exactly is the VESA acronym?

The VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) defines mounting configurations for flat-screen monitors and flat-screen televisions. The VESA mounting pattern is used by most manufacturers of flat screen televisions and monitors. Televisions that are VESA-compliant feature four holes at the back (two on the top and two on the at the bottom) for attaching a VESA-compliant mounting bracket that matches the VESA mount pattern.

  • Wall Mounts that tilt

Tilting brackets provide the most compatibility, without the need for any modifications for attaching any VESA mount-compatible flat screen TV or monitor.

  • This product is compatible with LCD, Plasma, LED, OLED flat-screen and curved-screen televisions.
  • Suitable for any flat surface - Plaster, drywall and wood studs, drywall and metal studs (interior and outside wall). Tiled, brick, concrete walls, and so forth.
  • Lateral Shift allows you to place the TV at the center of almost any situation (the TV is able to be moved to the left or right on the wall plate).
  • Most of the Tilting TV wall mounts we sell provide enough space between the back of the TV and the wall (between 2 12 and 3.1'' according to the type of mount) to reach behind the TV for an easy cable connection and management regardless of the cable's connection directed downwards, sideways, or backwards toward the wall.
  • If your television is placed high over a fireplace, you can lower it for a better viewing angle.
  • If you ever need to replace wiring, you can tilt the TV up (on most models we carry) to make more space and access the cables on the back of the television without needing to remove the cable.
  • Extra-heavy TVs can be mounted on extra-wide wall plates. The extra-wide wall plate allows users to extend up to three studs that are 16 inches apart (for a total distance of 32 inches).
  • It can be used with a component wall shelf to cover any cable slacks behind your TV. This will give you an improved appearance and more polished.
  • Wires behind the TV are easy to set up and maintain.


  • Although it stands out slightly higher than Super Slim/Low-profile television wall mounts, it is an acceptable trade-off given all its other benefits.
  • It does not swivel to either side.
  • It tilts the TV both upwards and downwards, and it also "Pops Out" at 5.7 inches, which makes it easier to reach behind the TV. The pop-out function is useful in attempting to access wires behind TVs with large dimensions, such as the 90-inch. Also useful in circumstances where the power outlet is positioned in the centre of the television, making it difficult to hook or unhook the power cord without the feature of pop-out.
  • Even on extremely heavy 90-inch TVs, tilting is an easy task.
  • While this mount is classified as an "Tilting" wall mount, it can be tilted with a slight swivel left and right.
  • A large cut-out is located in the middle portion of the wall plate, which allows it as a cover for an electrical outlet, cable jack or for instance.
  • Micro-level adjustment - This feature allows you to alter the TV's level after it's been hung in the wall.
  • TV Wall Mounts With Full Motion

Full Motion TV Wall Mounts are available in two varieties.

  • Full Motion Wall Mount with Single Stud Mounting (for smaller TVs)
  • Full Motion Wall Mount with Double Studs to support larger TVs

The following illustration is inspired by our SKU: 1281. The articulating bracket is attached to one stud, permitting smaller and lighter televisions to be mounted.

Full Motion Wall Mount with Single Stud Mounting

Our SKU 1291 Full Motion Wall Mount is used in the example below. The wall mount can be placed on two 16-inch On-Center studs. The double stud mount will clearly support more weight than one stud mount, making it perfect for mounting heavier and larger televisions.

As you can observe the wall plate of this bracket is significantly narrower than the Tilt wall mount bracket shown earlier (which is standard for full motion mount). It's worth noting that this isn't the only one with a narrow wall plate. Full motion mounts come with narrow wall plates that can be attached to studs that are no more than 16 inches away from the center. A few models permit spacings of up to 24 inches.

The wall plate of most Full Motion Wall Mounts is just wide enough to attach onto two 16-inch studs "apart-on-center" is a term that translates to "apart on the middle."


  • The swivels can be turned to the left or right
  • This product is compatible with LCD, Plasma, LED, OLED flat-screen and curved-screen televisions.
  • If you don't require your TV swivelled in an angle, it can fold into the wall making it ideal for installation in large rooms or in an area that is corner.
  • Some models can swivel 180 degrees.
  • Most of the models we offer have the ability to tilt down as well as up.
  • By pushing your TV away from the wall, you will be able to easily connect the cable connectors to the back of your TV.


  • Due to the thin wall plate design, there is a limitation.
  • The majority of people don't think it possible to place the television in the proper middle location. This depends on where your studs are. It's not recommended to be installed on walls that are narrow or above an fireplace.
  • The majority of the time full motion mounts tend to be more robust than other kinds of mounts, and stand out more.
  • Although the standard stud spacing is 16 inches on centre but it's rare to find studs with a spacing greater than 16 inches, particularly in basements or when the wall meets another wall perpendicularly on the opposite side of the wall. There are just a handful of fully motion mounts available on the market that are able to be put on studs spaced 24 " apart.
  • Televisions that are heavy should not be mounted on drywall with metal studs or on most exterior walls of older structures and homes.
  • Do you want to put your TV on top of the fireplace? The location of the studs will determine whether or not you are able to centre your TV above the fireplace.

Using an Full Motion Wall Mount to center the TV over the Fireplace

For a full motion TV to be TV over your fireplace first check where the studs will be. This will allow you to decide if your TV can be placed over them. Since the odds of having your studs exactly where you want them to allow the TV to be placed on your wall are slim to none.
