What a great...affordable... simple TV mount!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Invision TV Wall Mount Bracket with Tilt and Swivel 20 Inch Articulating Arm/Ultra Slim 1.8-Inch Wall Profile for Most 26 - 55 Inch LED/LCD/Plasma/4K/3D & Curved Screens (A2/HDTV-L) (Accessory)
This is a great product (so far). After some homework on what height I should install this and locating the stud, this mount was easy to install.
It is good solid construction and the welds look solid and complete. The mount itself has a nice cast-iron like powder coating on it. This product came nicely packaged with all screws (3 lag screws, masonry wall anchors and screws, machine screws) needed (even included a mostly useless wrench).
The cord holders are ok (plastic) and can be removed. They're a little loose. I wouldn't have minded if these were more of the rubber variety,
The plastic cover over the wall bracket and lag screw heads feels a bit cheap and flimsy but it does what it is supposed to (especially for the price!).
These types of mounts are meant only for a single stud or CMU block wall installation. I would not install this on a dry hollow wall even with anchors.
My TV has VESA 200x200 and installed on the TV bracket without the need for the extenders. The holes on the bracket are a little big so washers are suggested. The M4 screws were already on the TV but its washers are very near the diameter of the TV brackets holes.
Location - I wouldn't install these too high. I would say the top screw point of the wall bracket should be no more than 6-ft (which would place the middle of the TV screen about eye height (standing). The TV bracket has about a 10 degree tilt. If you're a really technical about the height, I guess you can back calculate the perpendicular angle from the 10 degree tilt of TV bracket to sitting eye height (45-inches?)....hahaha
Mount - I installed on a wood wall stud. Do your homework and locate the stud as exact as possible. Use a good stud finder and level. There are 3 mount holes on the bracket. You only need to locate the top hole. Once this done, then you must drill a pilot hole (otherwise it'll be a tough screw job, lol). When you've got the bracket mounted at the top screw, note the "eyeholes" at the top and bottom of the wall bracket. As you've located your wall stud, you should have drawn some lines on where the wall stud is. Use the eyeholes as guides to make sure your bracket is in line with the stud. The eyeholes are the same width as standard 2x4 (on end). When the bracket is lined up correctly then use the bottom two bracket holes as a template. While you could probably do this with paper to locate the holes, to me, this is easier and can be faster.
Use some sort of thin "plate" or gasket between the wall and the wall bracket if possible. Because this wall bracket is solid metal and you will have to tighten the lag bolts pretty good, it may ruin that part of your dry wall. A good table mat could do the trick.
Equipment - stud finder, pencil, level, socket set, drill, Phillips head screwdriver
Notes: Power cord to your TV may not be long enough for high mounts unless you move the outlet higher or use an extension cord. Also, the TILT feature requires you to loosen two nut/bolts. Don't forget to note which way is up.
Simplicity at its finest for this mount! Get one!

Installed this mount today and found your review to be very helpful for completing the job correctly the first time. It is a very good tip to suggest placing a fabric or plastic "plate" behind the bracket to prevent damage to the drywall. In summary your review was great and Amazon is fortunate to have an "associate" such as yourself helping out their customers. There is a lot to like about Amazon.

Thank you for such a great review we are happy to hear you liked our product, just a quick point regards the one touch tilting mechanism, this is assembled and designed with nylon locking nuts and two compression washers so once the TV is mounted you can set the tightness of the lock nuts (with the wrench provided) so the TV can be tilted by back and forth by hand without the need of the small wrench again.
With a couple of attempts you can get the locking nuts to perfection so they are tight enough so the TV is held in position you set it and with not loosen over time, also the compression washers in front of the lock nuts allows the tilt mechanism to slide back and forth by hand, be cartful not to over tighten or the lock nuts or the TV wont move (this is an option for some) and if it is too loose the TV will tilt forward to easy
Hope this help, if you need anything else please just let us know and we will be happy to help and once again thank you for such a great review and kind comments we always like to get feedback from our customers.
