Types of TV Mounting Solutions

You finally got that new TV you’ve been wanting for your home or office! Congratulations! However, a TV is only as good as its location and positioning in a room. Whether you’re creating your very own home theater or mounting larger monitors on an office wall, having a wall mounted TV is far more versatile and eye catching than using a TV stand…while also saving you valuable space. That’s where we can help with our wide range of TV mounting solutions for all customers and price ranges. Let’s review the different types of TV mounts, brackets, and other TV accessories so you can make the right purchase for YOU and your TV’s specifications.

The Right TV Wall Mount Depends on the Room

When first evaluating a TV mount, it’s important to identify exactly which room this TV will be placed in as well as the optimal angle or side of the room you plan on mounting. Be sure to account for windows and the glare from sunlight when positioning your TV. For an optimal viewing experience, the TV height should be roughly eye level. Extra care should be taken for mounting TVs on walls, as the weight requires drilling into the studs of a wall to ensure proper durability and safety (this is the standard method required to properly secure your TV). Although installation is easy, proper TV mount planning will ensure the TV stays ON THE WALL via wooden wall studs rather than ON THE FLOOR.

TV Mounts vs TV Brackets?

There may be some confusion on whether you need a TV wall mount or TV wall bracket when, in fact, the two terms overlap. Brackets are a common type of TV mount where the actual TV bracket is attached to the wall. A TV mount can be any type of mount (such as a vesa plate type vs bracketed attachment) that attaches it to a wall, for example a TV arm wall mount. Having split TV wall brackets built-in can make it easier to mount a TV in a corner of a room or try a low profile flat screen TV mount for a more modern look.

Fixed Wall Mount

Fixed TV wall mounts are a perfect solution to home environments or other spaces that do not demand a lot of flexibility. A fixed TV mount is great if you want to have a low profile look. Your set-up will look especially sleek if your LCD, LED, or Plasma TV has a slim profile. Curved TVs are a great way to add that home theater effect as well. However, we recommend having some type of adjustability feature built into your mounted TV to compensate for the glare in rooms at different times of the day or different times of the year. Having adjustability allows you to move the flat screen TV to your ideal viewing angle as well.

Tilting Wall Mounts

A tilting wall mount gives you the ability to have a limited tilt angle to help with viewing angle and reduce glare; however, this is a far more limited range of motion than an articulating mount, swivel mount, and full motion TV wall mount. Regardless, a tilting mount still gives you an ideal viewing angle whenever you watch TV.

Full Motion TV Wall Mount / Articulating Wall Mount

For the maximum flexibility in viewing angles and dynamic presentation, we recommend a full motion wall mount with an articulating arm over a fixed mount, such as a swivel wall mount, articulating wall mount, or a full-motion mount. These options will give your screen the freedom to tilt or swivel the viewing angle of the flat screen display as needed, making them the perfect option for offices or other conditions requiring adaptability (i.e. reduce glare). We even have height-adjustable TV mounts to ensure you can easily find the perfect solution to make your mounting dream come true in even the most unique spaces, such as spaces on the ceiling with our full motion ceiling mount.

Universal Mounts

The TV mounts for sale from Mount-It! all have universal mounting brackets specifically designed to fit most types of televisions currently available in the marketplace. This helps eliminate some of the guesswork involved when choosing a TV mounting bracket regardless of the make, model, TV size or type of television including LCD TV, Plasma TV, or even LED displays.

Installing a TV Mount

Please be sure to consult the product’s instruction manual and to look over the necessary mounting hardware before attempting to install your TV mount. Specific detailed instructions are provided for wood stud wall mounting & solid brick and concrete wall mounting. It is necessary to closely follow these directions when mounting a TV to avoid personal injury and/or improper installation (which can jeopardize your TV or injure someone). Be sure to check if your TV size and wall mount are compatible with the corresponding VESA mounting pattern. Installation may require the use of drill bits and power drill to attach TV mounting brackets.

Need Help with Mounting Solutions?

Trying to mount a TV but not sure where to start? No problem! Our team of mounting experts can help guide you to the right TV mounting application for your display screen size and space. We will help you evaluate your TV mounting needs and make recommendations for the specific type of mount that we think would work best for you and your specifications! Soon, you’ll be on your way to mounting your television and transforming your space.

How To Mount A TV

Most TV mounts use a VESA plate to mount your TV to the TV Mount. The VESA pattern is determined by 4 holes on the back of your TV and their dimensions. You must make sure that the TV mount and your TV have Vesa size compatibility or you could end up with a TV mount that does not fit your TV. All VESA plates use millimeters for standard sizing. The distance between the vertical holes and the horizontal holes determine your TV’s VESA size. Common sizes are 100 x 100 and 200 x 200. Our Customer Service Team is also available Monday – Friday 8 am – 4 pm PST at 1 (855)0915-2666 to help you figure out the best mount for your TV.

How To Install a TV Wall Mount

Although all mounts are different, installation follows 4 general steps. First, you will need to determine the location for your mount and install the mount or wall plate with TV mounting brackets. Second, you will attach the VESA plate to the back of your TV. Third, you will hang or attach the tv via the VESA plate to the TV mount. Fourth, you will adjust the tilt, swivel and arm extension of the TV on the mount. Most installations will require a drill and you will sometimes need help to lift the TV onto the mount plate. Instructions should be carefully followed with special attention paid to the mount location and what it will be drilled into so it is properly secured. If you are interested in a location without studs, see our resource on How To Mount a TV On The Wall Without Studs.

How High Should A TV Be Mounted?

How high a TV should be mounted depends on the location of who is viewing the TV. Head neck alignment should be able to be maintained while watching the TV. For ergonomic best practices, you want to avoid having to hold your head up or down too much, thus causing neck strain. Ideal placement is at eye level of the most commonly viewed from location. A TV with a wall mount, or even better, a full motion mount, is an ideal choice for a family as it can provide ideal viewing for people of different heights with a simple adjustment. Many fixed fireplace TV mounts create neck strain for viewers, so a TV mount with a manual or electric pull down option is ideal – you easily pull it down while watching and move it back above the fireplace when not in use. Additional information is available in our How High Should I Mount My TV?

Swivel TV Mount or Full Motion Mount

Swivel TV mounts allow you to swivel the TV from right to left. A full motion or articulating TV mount includes the swivel feature, but also allows you to tilt the TV up and down and extend the TV from the wall. The location and viewing purpose will help you choose the best TV mount configuration for your space.

Fixed TV Mount

Fixed TV wall mounts are a perfect solution to home environments or other spaces that do not demand a lot of flexibility. A fixed TV mount is great if you want to have a low profile look. Your set-up will look especially sleek if your LCD, LED, or Plasma TV has a slim profile. Curved TVs are a great way to add that home theater effect as well. However, we recommend having some type of adjustability feature built into your mounted TV to compensate for the glare in rooms at different times of the day or different times of the year. Having adjustability allows you to move the flat screen TV to your ideal viewing angle as well.

TV Accessories

TV accessories are a great way to upgrade your current TV entertainment set-up, and even make it safer. Soundbars and speakers provide an enhanced theater-like TV watching experience. Many people who use TV wall mounts also prefer to mount their soundbar to the TV. Sound bars are an easy way to minimize clutter and offer a clean and modern look. Anti-tipping safety straps help keep little ones safe in rooms with TVs that are on traditional TV stands.

How to Choose the Best TV Mount

There are good reasons that more people are wall-mounting their new TVs these days. A wall-mounted television can save space and make a room look better. A TV that might seem too big if it’s sitting on a stand will be less imposing if you hang it on a wall.

Wall-mounting can also prevent dangerous TV tip-overs, which send hundreds of kids to the emergency room every year.

But you need to get the right mount for the TV, and for your room.

Start off by making sure any TV mount you’re considering can handle the size and weight of your set. The maximum weight and screen-size specifications will be listed on the TV mount’s box and the company website. Just because two mounts can handle the same size television, don’t assume they are rated for their same weight—that differs by brand.

Next, consider the construction of the wall where you plan to hang your TV. Most TV mounts are compatible with traditional wood-stud framing and drywall, but you might need a special mount if you’re hanging your TV on other types of walls, such as plaster, concrete, or brick.

Almost all TVs have four mounting holes on the back, arranged in a standard VESA pattern. The name stands for the Video Electronics Standards Association. That means that any TV mount you buy should work, as long as it’s rated for your television’s size.

Televisions use several different VESA pattern sizes. The most common are VESA 200×200 for TVs up to 32 inches, VESA 400×400 for TVs up to 60 inches, and VESA 600×400 for bigger-screen TVs.

You can usually find your TV’s VESA info in its manual or online, under product specifications. If you no longer have access to either, you can determine the VESA size of your TV by measuring it. Just look for the four holes on the back of your television, and start by measuring the horizontal distance between two of the holes, in millimeters. Then, measure the distance between the holes vertically. These measurements should conform to one of the dimensions listed above. 

There are several types of mounts, including fixed, tilting or swiveling, and full-motion. One style isn’t better than another—it all depends on the layout of your room, where you plan to hang the TV, and where you’ll be sitting.

We wanted to see if certain types or individual TV mount models were easier to install and use. To find out, we built a wall just like the ones in many houses: drywall over 2×4 framing, with the centers of the studs 16 inches apart. Then we bought a bunch of wall mounts in various styles, in prices from $35 to $350, and installed them using the included hardware. For our test TV, we used a 55-inch LG model that weighed just over 40 pounds. As it turned out, all of the models worked well.

Here’s what you need to know to choose the right style of TV mount.

Fixed mounts are a good choice for TV that will be directly in front of your viewing area. (Shown: Kanto Fixed TV Wall Mount, $55.)

Fixed mounts, like the one shown above, don’t let you tilt or swivel your TV. They’re great choices if you mainly sit directly in front of your TV and have the space to keep the TV at an optimal position, angle, and height. (Some models have adjustable leveling screws to make sure the TV is perfectly level after it’s mounted.)

These mounts, including one we tried—the Kanto Fixed TV Wall Mount, $55, available at Best Buy and Office Depot—often don’t leave a lot of room between the TV and wall. Before you hang one, see if the TV has connections on the side of the set. Otherwise, connect the cables from your cable box, streaming player, or game console before the TV is mounted.

Tilting mounts can help provide an optimal viewing angle. (Shown: Sanus Advanced Tilt 4D TV Wall Mount, $170.)

Tilting mounts are better than fixed mounts choices if you’ll be viewing your TV from any sort of angle. A tilting mount lets you angle the TV downward if you’re hanging the set high on the wall. That can help maintain the best viewing angle when you’re seated, provided you’ll still be sitting directly in front of the TV, and can also let you adjust the angle to reduce any glare bouncing off the screen. We don’t recommend mounting a TV above a fireplace because heat and smoke can cause damage, but nonetheless, it’s a popular option where a tilting mount makes great sense.

If the TV will be both higher than your seating position and off at an angle, consider a mount that can both tilt and swivel, such as the Sanus Advanced Tilt 4D TV Wall Mount, $170, shown above, which is available at Amazon and Best Buy. Models vary in terms of how far they can swivel. Depending on the range of motion, tilting models generally stick out a bit farther from the wall than fixed mounts.

Full-motion, or fully articulating, mounts offer the greatest installation flexibility. (Shown: Amazon Basics Dual Arm Full Motion Articulating TV Mount, $48.)

Full-motion, or fully articulated, mounts, such as the Onn Full Motion TV Wall Mount, $45, from Walmart, the Best Buy Essentials Large Full Motion Wall Mount, $60, and the Amazon Basics Dual Arm Full Motion Articulating TV Mount, $48 (shown above, it was out of stock as of mid-March 2023) offer greater placement options because they can move in any direction, including forward toward the viewer.

We tried a few versions, and found that the Onn and Best Buy models provided the most distance from the wall when pulled out, enabling a wide degree of viewing angles. Because they can swivel from side-to-side as well as tilt up and down, such mounts are a good choice for a TV that will be mounted high in the corner of a room. A larger, heavier TV might require a full-motion mount with two arms instead of one. In general, these mounts require the TV to be farther from the wall for maximum swivel when extended, but many can be pushed back closer to the wall when they’re not in use.

In addition to those three types of mounts, you can find specialty versions designed for specific applications. For example, some let you mount your TV from a ceiling, while others might have two wall mounting plates for mounting the set in a corner. There are also mounts specifically designed for mounting a TV above a fireplace that allow the set to be lowered for viewing.

Once you have the right type in mind, how do you choose a specific TV wall mount?

In our testing, all the wall mounts performed about equally well. They were pretty easy to install, and they all held our test TV securely. There were some differences, sure, including how far articulation mounts could rotate. But as long as you buy a mount that’s compatible with your TV, it should work as advertised.

If you’re handy, it’s really not too hard to wall-mount a TV. (For details, see “How to Wall-Mount Your TV.”) Many mounts come with a template you can use to position and drill the holes. It’s best to lag-bolt the mount to the vertical studs behind the wall, not the drywall itself, or into masonry, for the most secure installation. The installation will go more smoothly if you have a stud finder (for wood-framed walls), a level, a drill, properly sized drill bits for drilling pilot holes, and a socket set for installing the bolts into the studs or the anchors used with masonry. And as tempting as it may be to go it alone, placing the TV onto the wall should be a two-person job: Large TVs are tricky to align and secure without help.

However, not everyone is comfortable with tackling this as a DIY project. Instead, you can get your TV professionally mounted. Prices vary, depending on the type of mount and how complicated the installation will be. Best Buy, Target, and Walmart offer installation using either their own staff members or an outside company. Prices start at about $70 to $100 for a very basic installation, but installing a mount on surfaces other than drywall (including brick, stone, or plaster), or mounting the TV above a fireplace, will cost more.

One last note: Concealing wires and cables can keep everything looking neat and professional. Most retailers sell concealment kits, also called raceways, that let you hide and organize cables without cutting into the wall. Most of these kits have an adhesive backing, so they can stick to your wall without damaging it. Many can be painted to match your wall color.

LCD and Plasma TV Mounts

Modern TVs are relatively light for their size. This makes it easy to mount them on a wall or ceiling. You just need to choose the right bracket and place for installation.

We have been dealing with brackets since 2002. A few tips for those who want to hang the TV on the wall themselves.

Find out the VESA parameter
To choose the right mount, you need to know which VESA standard the TV complies with. Examine its back panel and find four threaded holes for the bracket.

Measure the distance between the holes horizontally and vertically. The resulting numbers will be the VESA standard.

A few examples of VESA: 50x50mm, 75x75mm, 100x100mm, 100x200mm, 100x200mm and so on.

VESA also depends on the diagonal of modern TVs. For example, for TVs with a diagonal of 15 to 36 inches, the standard is 50 × 50 mm, 75 × 75 mm, 100 × 100 mm, 100 × 200 mm, 200 × 100 mm, 200 × 200 mm. 37″ to 65″ – 200x200mm, 300x300mm, 400x200mm, 400x300mm, 400x400mm, 600x400mm. The VESA standard for 65″ to 100″ TVs is 400x400mm, 600x400mm, 800x400mm, 800x500mm, 800x600mm.

Determine the load
The maximum load values ​​are specified in the specifications of the bracket. They must be compared with the mass of the TV.

In no case do I recommend relying solely on the appearance of the product. It may seem strong, but in reality it turns out that it is not. At the same time, an elegant and fragile-looking bracket made of modern materials is able to withstand significant weight.

Refer to technical data. Manufacturers are responsible for ensuring that their products comply with what is written in the list of characteristics.

Select a mounting location
Make sure the wall or ceiling can withstand the load. Plywood is definitely not suitable. You can mount flat brackets with a large area on a drywall wall. If the walls crumble and collapse, then the TV will not hang on them for long. Walls can be reinforced with embedded elements.

I recommend to think in advance how and where to hide the wires. If aesthetics are important, the wires can be removed in a box.

Select a distance from the floor so that the screen is clearly visible and the neck does not get tired in one position. In the kitchen, TV is watched infrequently, so it can be hung higher. In the bedroom or living room, it will be inconvenient to look up for a long time.

The placement is chosen taking into account the size of the room, the diagonal of the screen, the location of the furniture. Go around the room and look from different sides at the point where you intend to hang or place the TV. The main thing is that you are comfortable.

Before hanging the TV, make sure that the mount will support it. Expensive electronics are worth it to check everything several times.

Find the right type of brackets
Brackets are available for wall, floor and ceiling. Wall mounted are divided into several types: static, inclined, swivel and gas lift.

Static brackets are used when a viewing area is precisely defined, and chairs or a sofa are located opposite it. The advantage is the minimum distance from the wall. When installing, you only need to choose a comfortable viewing height.

Tilt brackets can be mounted above eye level.

With tilt-and-swivel arms, there can be several zones for watching TV. You can mount the TV above eye level, since the angle of inclination is also adjustable here. This bracket is chosen if you plan to rearrange furniture. If you need to get to the connectors, you do not have to remove the TV or act by touch.

Gas lift brackets are the least used. With their help, you can adjust not only the angle of inclination and rotation of the screen, but also the height. Usually this range is up to 50 centimeters.

Ceiling brackets are most often used in studio apartments, country houses, shopping centers, railway stations and airports. For installation, a wall is not needed, but they are installed much higher than human growth.

When there is no need to hang the TV on the wall or ceiling, it is placed on a cabinet or on a special floor stand. It has adjustable height and swivel.

5 Bracket Recommendations

  1. Determine VESA settings. The bracket must match the TV that you intend to install on it.
  2. Consider the weight of the TV. The permissible load must be indicated in the technical characteristics of the brackets.
  3. Select the location, take into account the strength of the wall or ceiling.
  4. The type of bracket depends on the room and the need for access to the back of the TV.
  5. It is important to check the quality of the work done before hanging up the TV.

How to choose a TV bracket tips and selection rules – LG MAGAZINE Russia magazine

Previously, because of its bulkiness, a TV could only be installed on a bedside table in a room. The modern model of the device has become much more compact and lighter, which allows it to be placed vertically on the wall. It is this type of TV installation that the modern user most often chooses. For these purposes, special brackets were created that allow you to install the TV on a wall or ceiling.

TV bracket is a metal structure used for hanging appliances. Such mounts allow you to adjust the location of the device, making it convenient for each of the viewers to view it. The mounts have a wide range of functionality, among which the following are the most important:

  • Rational use of space.
  • Secure fixation of the TV on a vertical plane.
  • Convenient viewing.
  • Harmonious introduction of technology into any room interior.

In order to choose the right bracket, it is necessary to study the main varieties of these designs. The manufacturers of this fastener take into account all the wishes of users and are guided by global trends. Among them are the following types:

  • Fixed bracket. This is a metal piece that secures the TV to the wall in a fixed position. Does not allow you to change the rotation and tilt of the TV. It is the most affordable, but not the most convenient model of brackets. Reliability is unmatched. It is made in the form of a small metal plate or a common guide, on which two supports are located. The TV is mounted on the wall like a picture and is in one position. With a fixed model, space is saved in the room, since the body leans as tightly as possible against the wall.
  • Tilt bracket. Has a more complex design. In such a device, the TV seat rotates in a vertical plane, has a turn and an angle of inclination from 10 to 30 degrees. Due to this, glare is removed from the TV screen, regardless of the installation height. An inclined bracket is one of the most successful options in terms of price and features.
  • Tilt-and-swivel bracket . A multi-hinge design is used, which allows you to choose the position of the TV in two planes: vertical and horizontal, capable of changing the rotation and tilt of the TV. Tilt-and-turn fasteners are suitable for walls with complex architectural solutions. With a simple movement of the hand, the user can change the position of the TV screen up or down. This bracket has a reduced maximum load when compared to previously discussed options. The tilt-and-turn model is considered the most convenient and most popular among users.
  • Ceiling bracket. Allows you to choose the position of the TV screen in a wide range, but this design can only be installed in rooms with high ceilings and an open layout. The panel of the ceiling structure is fixed on a pipe (rod), which is mounted on the ceiling. Such mounts are often found in shopping malls and other public places where televisions are used for advertising. The ceiling bracket can be both inclined and tilt-rotary.
  • Floor bracket. Not very popular among Russian users, but still many manufacturers produce this design. The choice of such a stand is relevant when it comes to a large-sized TV that cannot be installed on a bedside table. Also, the floor mobile structure serves as an alternative in cases with plasterboard walls, which can only withstand small devices.

The choice of the most suitable TV bracket is made according to certain criteria, taking into account the technical characteristics of the bracket and the TV itself. To select a design, important parameters must be taken into account:

  • Display diagonal. If you use a bracket that is too large, you run the risk of blocking the connectors with the mount. Sometimes its parts look ugly from below or from the side when the TV is hanging on the wall.
  • Maximum load . This is a very important parameter, since the weight of the TV in no case should be more than the carrying capacity of the bracket. If a heavy product is fixed on a weak mount, then it simply cannot stand it and breaks, and expensive electronics fall from a height and break. For example, if for a TV weight of 20 kilograms, choose a fixture that can withstand 26 kilograms.
  • Tilt or swivel angle . The design must rotate in different directions with an amplitude that is necessary in real operating conditions.
  • Place of installation. In order to choose and buy a bracket, you need to decide in advance on the installation location of the TV. If you will be using a wall mount located opposite the sofa, in this case it is recommended to choose a fixed bracket model. If the screen is too high, exceeding the level of sight, an inclined or rotary structure should be installed. The same applies when the TV is located in the corner of the room. Failure to comply with this rule will cause rapid eye fatigue and increased stress on the neck.
  • Bracket weight . This indicator must be taken into account if it is planned to use interior partitions for installation. Such a wall is considered too light, not designed for increased loads. The weight of the structure along with the TV may be too large for such a place, and sooner or later the fasteners will simply fall out. In the worst case scenario, the partition itself may crack and require major repairs.
  • Dimensions VESA . These are the distances between the bolt holes on the mount. The mount selected by weight and configuration without taking them into account may not be suitable.

Let’s take a closer look at how to measure VESA and what the VESA standard means. Modern TV brackets differ not only in type and design, but also in size. This parameter must be paid attention to. On the brackets, manufacturers indicate suitable TV diameters, for example, for a 55-inch or 40-inch TV monitor. But this information is not enough to choose the right mount. The VESA standard will help you choose the right TV bracket size for your TV.

This standard refers to the bolt hole patterns for mounting the TV. Manufacturers prescribe the parameters in the instructions. They are designated by two numbers, for example, 200×200 or 100×100. In these sets of numbers, the first value indicates the distance that must be present between the bolts in a horizontal relationship. The second value is the vertical distance.

VESA values ​​range from 50×50 to 800×400. Accordingly, for a small TV screen, for example, with a diagonal of 32 inches, a medium-sized VESA bracket is suitable, but it is better to choose fasteners with a small margin.

Large screen such as 55″ or 75″ requires a mount with maximum VESA ratings. It is measured by VESA as follows:

  • Turn the TV with the back panel facing you if it is on a leg. Or put the monitor down, using a soft surface.
  • Using a ruler or tape measure, measure the distance between two mounting holes for the bolts horizontally (we get the first number) and two vertically (the second number).

You can also go to the manufacturer’s website, find your TV and study the technical specifications. Some manufacturers have made life easier for customers. They produce brackets with many holes for various VESA parameters.

Consider the intricacies of mounting the bracket. Brackets have two or four fixation points. The choice depends on what kind of surface you have. When mounting on a concrete wall, the parameter is not important. You can screw the bracket plate in two places, this will be enough. Drywall and other fragile materials are another matter, in which case reliable fixation with four points is required.

Not everyone will immediately understand how to install a TV wall bracket. In addition, without certain knowledge and skills, mistakes can be made, which will be very problematic to correct. In general, installing the bracket with your own hands is not difficult. The following is a guide to help with installation:

  • Select a suitable location for the TV by marking the wall. A line is drawn along the underside of the bracket, be sure to use a building level, which will allow you to hang the TV evenly the first time. When installing a fixed TV bracket, place the screen at eye level. Tilt or swivel wall structures can be hung at any height.
  • Attach the bracket to the wall, marking the hole locations with dots. Some manufacturers add a template or level as standard, which greatly simplifies the process of installing the bracket.
  • Using a drill or puncher, drill holes in the wall according to the marks, then screw in the dowels or anchors.
  • Bolt the plate and wall bracket to the surface. Be sure to check the reliability of its installation. Only then fix the TV.

Consider bracket models in different price categories. The price of brackets depends on the type of construction, manufacturer and a number of other factors. The cheapest are fixed models, such as the Uniteki FM1901. Reliable, simple option.
