Excellent low cost movable arm,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: VideoSecu 24" Long Arm TV Wall Mount Low Profile Articulating Full Motion Cantilever Swing Tilt wall bracket for most 22" to 55" LED LCD TV Monitor Flat Screen VESA 200x200 400x400 up to 600x400mm MAH (Accessory)
This flat panel mount is adjustable and very cost effective, an excellent product for the money. This arm comes with all needed mounting hardware for either masonry or wall stud mounting as well as a set of 4 screws for several sizes of panel mounting screws. It also comes with a small wrench for two different sizes of hex heads on the arm and an allen wrench for one of the arm adjustments. It is at least a two man operation to attach the flat screen after the arm is attached to the wall. I mounted mine on a stud in the wall. For stud mounting you use two of the six mounting hex head lag screws that come with it. It doesn't say exactly in the directions but you should use a 1/4" drill bit to pre-drill the holes in the stud. I would not recommend trying to use the included hex wrench to tighten down the wall mounting lag screws, you need more leverage to tighten it than it provides; use a crescent wrench or other longer hex wrench. I used a stud finder to locate the studs accurately. Make sure you do not have obvious pipes or electrical going through the wall at the chosen location. They can throw off some stud finders. If you want to quickly adjust one of the arm adjustment screws it also contains a replacement screw that has a slip bar top lever so that it can be loosened and tightened without a wrench. There is one optional cable management loop that attaches to the bottom of the middle of the arm. It could use one more at the wall, but that is easy to improvise. The flat panel we have is 32" and 25 lbs. and works well for the mounting arm.
I really like this product for this price.

J. Galloway's comments were extremely helpful to me in trying to mount this device and my TV. The instructions in the package leave much to be desired. I did not find any web-based instructions or videos either. It wasn't that difficult, but with so many more parts that were actually needed to assemble, I was a little confused. Thanks.

Hello Sir I was just wondering if the stud you mounted it on was a wood stud or a metal stud? My TV is 32" and i'm worried it might rip the bracket right out of the stud or bend/break the stud. My tv is not immensely heavy, definitely under the 66lbs that it says, but i'm still a bit worried, you never know!
Please respond, thanks!

I'm going to hop into this conversation; I mounted in a stud even though I worried and worried about breaking my new $600 TV. I can promise you if you don't move it often you have little to nothing to worry about, just make sure to put it in the CENTER of the stud. Marking each side of stud helped me a lot and eased my stress of falling. Mounting was a breeze; more less like anything else to do with a drill it's pretty straight forward. Didn't really need to look at the manual but to figure the screws and things for mounting. Even though its one of the cheapest I have seen, it looks and feels like it could be put through some weight and time on the stud. Good product overall!
