Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cheetah Mounts APDAM3B Dual Articulating Arm (13.5" Extension) TV Wall Mount Bracket for 20-55 inch LCD, LED and Plasma Flat Screen TVs up to VESA 400x400 and 115lbs, with Tilt, Swivel, and Rotation Adjustment, Including a Twisted Veins 10' Braided High Speed with Ethernet HDMI Cable and a 6" 3-Axis Magnetic Bubble Level (Accessory)
The mount arrived on time.
I bought this to hang my Toshiba 52" above the fire place.
The instructions are easy to follow and any and all hardware come with the mount.
My only complaint is the mounting bracket, It could be wider.
The stud's in the wall are wider than 18" (non load bearing wall)
If it came with some sort of "extender" bracket then this unit would be absolutly PERFECT!.
I ended up cutting the sheetrock and added more 2x4 in the wall and put the sheet rock back.(wasn't too bad)
Once it was mounted, I extended the arm and put my weight on it (210lbs) this thing did not budge!
Very sturdy unit, it suprised the heck out of me.
I will buy another one without hesitation as soon as I get another flat TV for my bedroom.
Hope this help's!!!!

I bought the mount and came across the exact same conclusion. I didn't realize the wall bracket was only sized for 16" on center studs - meaning that if I didn't want to cut up drywall as you did, the TV would have to be centered between two studs.

Who is building the walls with studs on greater than 16" centers? That is no reflection on the TV mount. That is just cheap construction. Load-bearing or not, there is no real reason to deviate from the standard 16" centers.

I have been in construction for 40 years, and while 16" on center was the norm, Many newer places are being built with 23" oc.,, There is a similar mount made for 24" spacing.

How far does the arm extend from the wall? I need mine to extend at least 32 in.

Building standards in most parts of the US dictate the load bearing walls are 16" centers, non load bearing walls are 24" centers. I see this in almost every house I remodel. It is quite helpful when figuring out what walls can and cannot be removed without shoring.

You must have a lot of free time or in general are just a miserable person. Why would you scrutinize someone who took time out of their life to help you by reviewing a product because of an apostrophe he did or didn't use. Wow. You should consider being a bit more appreciative and considerate.
