Extremely low Profile of 1”. The profile does provide a very clean and modern look. In order to get this low of a profile this mount does not Tilt. It is a flat mount that locks the TV in place. Additionally, if you have rear facing HDMI ports you will need to get a 90° or 270° right angle adapter. The head of the cable on rear facing TVs is too thick to fit behind this mount.
Lift and Lock
This mount utilizes a lift and lock design.
What this does for you:
1. Easy Installation. Install the brackets to your TV, Install the wall plate to your wall and then you simply hang the TV and the easy latches lock it in place.
2. When changing cables or inputs, you can easily pull the tab to disconnect the lower anchors and you can angle your tv away from the wall, allowing easy access to the AV inputs.
3. If you have your TV mounted and need to take the TV down to paint or for any other reason, there are no tools required for installation or removal once the mount is installed on the wall.
Up To VESA 400
VESA 400 Max Mounting.
VESA is the standard used for explaining the distance between the holes on the back of your TV. This mount will accommodate up to VESA 400. To simplify, that means if the holes on the back of your TV are less than 16” apart and the TV weighs less than 115 lbs. this mount will work for you. This mount is in general ideal for 27, 32, 40, 46, 50, 55 and some 60 or 65” TVs depending on weight and compatible hole patterns. Common VESA Patterns for this mount are 100x200, 200x200, 200x300, 300x300, 300x400, 400x400
Multi Type Wall Installation
Included in this mount is the hardware to install this to wood Studs spaced 16” apart or closer. This is the standard in most homes, but some interior walls or commercial walls will have a 24” stud spacing. If you have 24” Studs you may need additional hardware to use this mount. We also include Masonry anchors. The anchors included are not designed for Drywall or Gypsum board. If you want to install into drywall alone, you will need toggle or molly bolts. These bolts are not included. It is important to remember that if you install into drywall the holding strength is reduced and will vary by the quality of your anchor and the drywall you are mounting to.

I also installed the Datacomm 50-3323-WH-KIT behind the TV for cable management so that I could run the include 10' HDMI cable and power inside the wall versus having the cables hang down from the TV. You can't beat this mount for the price; it's sturdy and the viewing angle is adjustable. Because it's in my bedroom, I do have it an angle, which puts the top of the TV about 4.25 inches from the wall. Even at this angle, you can't see any of the cables as you enter the room (the include velcro cable management ties work perfectly.
UPDATE (6/29/2018): I just purchased my 3RD CHEETAH MOUNT to install a Samsung QN75Q7 Flat 75" QLED that my sister just bought for her new home. Although the pre-assembled VESA 400x400 configuration may benefit owners of smaller TVs, it did take a few extra minutes to unassemble and reassemble the mount to use on her 75" TV. Although the Samsung is a 400x400 VESA configuration, due to the weight of the TV (90lbs), I wanted to make sure the mount was attached to the wood studs which required the expanded pieces. WARNING FOR ANY OTHER SAMSUNG TV OWNERS (65" or larger): The four (4) M8 screws provided by Cheetah are not long enough to use on the VESA hanging rails. I had to go to the local hardware store and pick up longer M8 bolts (about 20mm longer) and about $0.37 each. Other than that hiccup, the mount works great for her new Samsung TV.
Like most Amazon shoppers, I count on honest, unbiased reviews. I hope you have found this review helpful in making your purchase decision.
Overall, I am very happy with this wall mount and I will buy another one when I get a TV for my office. I can easily recommend this TV mount. Based on other reviews, I was a little concerned and almost didn't order this wall mount. Some of these complaints need to be qualified and some of the complaints have been fixed by Cheetah.
OTHER PEOPLE's COMPLAINTS:
I had read previous reviews and the three points that have been raised by other reviewers were:
1. Poor or confusing instructions
2. Cheap or flimsy construction
3. Inability to hide the cables that pull to release the display
4. Once mounted, you can move the bottom of the TV on the mount (there is a little play)
5. You have to assemble parts to extend the mount to anything larger then 16" studs
6. Don't use the included level. It isn't accurate.
For the low price and taking the complaints with some healthy skepticism, I went ahead and ordered this mount instead of just ordering a $100 mount. I was pleasantly surprised. It appears that the manufacturer has been paying attention to the feedback and has addressed several of the complaints and even included documentation pointing out the changes to the mount. I'm going to address each of the points listed above with my observations.
COMPLAINT: 1. Poor or confusing instructions
MY EXPERIENCE: If you have never put together a piece of furniture from ikea, yes, you may be confused by these instructions. If however, you have done any home repairs beyond replacing a light bulb, you will be able to figure this out without any confusion. For me, this was simple and easy. Maybe this is one of the things Cheetah fixed.
COMPLAINT: 2. Cheap or flimsy construction
MY EXPERIENCE: The metal construction of this mount is actually stronger then I expected. It appears as thought they have changed the design to use stronger parts. Yes, the hooks that you attach to the VESA mount on the TV and use to hang the TV on the bracket are not as robust as the metal on the wall bracket, but they are more then enough for the task at hand. I didn't experience them as being flimsy or at any risk of bending. The documentation did point out that they had included new stronger lag bolts, but still warned not to over tighten them.
COMPLAINT: 3. Inability to hide the cables that pull to release the display
MY EXPERIENCE: Cheetah now includes two magnets to stick onto the handles of the pull tabs so you can easily hide the pull tabs back up under the TV.
COMPLAINT: 4. Once mounted, you can move the bottom of the TV on the mount (there is a little play)
MY EXPERIENCE: Yes, this is true. Once the TV is mounted to the wall, you can press against the TV and there is a little play on the bottom of the TV. This doesn't really bother me. Once the TV is mounted on the wall, I don't actually go touch the TV. I use the remote control, so if there is a little room for play on the bottom of the mount, this doesn't actually affect the function or performance of the mount. This is just me. I am sure that just knowing that there is play in the mount will bug some people to no end. If you already know that something like this will bug you, this isn't the mont for you.
COMPLAINT: 5. You have to assemble parts to extend the mount to anything larger then 16" studs
MY EXPERIENCE: The mount has a small main rail that you can mount all by itself to the wall. This is 16" wide. If the studs in your wall are perfectly spaced so that the center point of the TV would fall exactly between these two studs, then you are all set. If like 95% of the rest of us, you are going to experience something less then the perfect situation, this mount is adaptable. It comes with extra rail sections you can attach to lengthen the wall mount. This allowed me to extend my wall mount and be less precise with how centered the wall mount was on the wall. I made sure the main 16" portion was where I was going to hang my TV and I used the extra extension to reach out to the next set of wall studs to make sure the wall mount was securely braced against the wall. The holes for the lag bots to score into the studs were oval shaped so that I even had flexibility to drill the hols i the studs and have some ability to adjust.
COMPLAINT: 6. Don't use the included level. It isn't accurate.
MY EXPERIENCE: I already own a very good level, so I didn't even check the included level. That being said, on my first attempt to hang the TV on the wall, I discovered that while my TV was perfectly level, my house was not. I live in an older victorian and the built in wainscoting and crown moulding were sloping towards the back of the house. Actually, I suspect the whole house slopes. So having the TV perfectly level was actually a bad idea. I took the TV off the wall and adjusted the hanging brackets by loosening the screws into the VESA mount points and moving the brackets on the left down a little. In fact, when you are first mounting the brackets to the back of your TV, you put the screws through long oval slots rather then a round hole. This gives you the freedom to adjust the brakes up or down by about an inch. I recommend mounting the brackets in the middle of the oval hole so that you have room to adjust up or down if you need to make some fine adjustments.
MY ONLY COMPLAINTS:
If you need to adjust the tilt of the TV or the leveling of the TV, you will need to take the TV off the wall and make the adjustments. I know that there are other mounts out there that make this a slightly easier process. You only need to make this adjustment once and then you are done. For me, I didn't see that convenience worth paying 4X the price of this mount. I know that this cost/value equation is different for everyone. For me, this wall mount is great and I will happily get another one when the time comes to hang another TV.
Top reviews from other countries
Es un buen producto, de hecho, no digo que es un simple buen producto calidad-precio, porque después de montarlo, me parece un auténtico chollazo, vivo al lado de un Leroy Merlín y de los que tienen en exposición, que valen más del triple o 4 veces mas, no lo dejan atrás en calidad ni en versatilidad, no es extraño por lo tanto que tenga tantas ventas ni tantos votos positivos.
Dicho esto, he grabado un pequeño video mientras lo iba sacando de la caja y para que se viera una vez montado como gira y como queda montado, vamos, un poco lo que me habría gustado ver antes de comprarlo, ya que hay tantos modelos disponibles en Amazon que estaba hecho un lio de verdad.
Una de las cosas que me decidió a favor de este soporte (aparte del precio y del envío prime) fue un detalle que no lograba ver en otros soportes, y es en el apartado de agujeros para poner los tornillos en la pared, podéis verlo en el video. Ese detalle da versatilidad y permite que, si no colocamos los tacos con exactitud milimétrica, podamos ajustar un poco el soporte sobre la pared.
El sistema de rotula, me ha parecido muy sencillo de colocar, he aflojado los 3 tornillos que trae, pero no hasta un punto que se quede suelto, sino que se quede fuerte pero aun se pueda girar la TV, la ajustamos y volvemos a apretar, se queda perfecto. Podéis ver en el video la facilidad en la que gira la TV sobre el soporte.
Un pero, que tambien he leído a muchos comentaristas de este y otros soportes, tiene que ver con los tacos y tornillos que incluye, a mi punto de entender, el tornillo, aunque de calidad, es corto, y el taco, debería ser mejor, de Nylon. Obviamente unos Tacos así valen un poco más, quizás un euro, pero vamos, yo no me he arriesgado y he puesto unos tacos de un poco mejor calidad y unos tornillos de 7 cm.
En fin. UN soporte sorprendentemente majo, y con un precio fantástico. Un autentico Chollazo, ahora faltará ver el resultado en unos meses... pero bueno, de haber algo raro ya lo contaría.
Ive listed a few that I feel you should be aware of If your reading reviews before buying:
1. Instructions are difficult to follow.
Instructions are very easy to follow you just have to use a bit of common sense on which options to follow as there are two!
2. Brackets are received in pieces and needs to be assembled which is difficult to do.
Again this is very easy to assemble, if you can follow the instructions :)
3. Bracket feels flimsy.
Brackets feels very very sturdy, you just need to tighten the screws all the way when assembling the bracket.
4. Rawlplugs supplied are cheap.
This I have to agree but i never ever use rawlplugs that have been supplied for products I buy, I use my own which I know will hold. For this bracket I used a medium duty, multipurpose rawlplug and screws. Didn't bother with the supplied screws.
5. Spirit level that came free is not accurate.
The instruction manual advises you to use your own bigger spirit level to fine tune the level. I used my own from the start.
6. The two locking pulley system dangles and could cause accidental release of the tv from the bracket and should somehow have a way to secure it behind the tv.
Within the bag of screws there are two magnets that you stick to the handles of the locking system which helps hide the pulley system behind the tv!
7. There is not enough space to put your hand behind the tv to connect the cables.
This bracket is "designed" to be as close to the wall as possible. I connected the cables to the back of the tv before placing it on the bracket.
All in all I'm very happy with this tv bracket and will definitely buy again if I need to in the future considering the price I paid for it and the free hdmi cable provided!
I bought this to hold my daughters new 50" Toshiba and it's perfect - took longer to drill the 3 holes in her reinforced concrete (ex council house fortress) walls than it did attaching / assembling the unit itself !
Can't recommend this enough, and I've not been paid for this review.....this really is THAT good so buy it, you won't be disappointed !!
Maybe the instructions aren't the easiest in the world, mainly because they make it all sound more difficult than it is to put the frame together and attach it to a wall. Assembling the frame is easy, attaching the arms to the TV is easy and then clipping the TV onto the frame is easier still. I was expecting to have to wiggle and manouevre a bit but was amazed to see that it clipped on straight away.
There are a few extras, like a spirit level, and decent-looking HDMI cable, a key ring with a light on it and a cleaning cloth. Presumably to keep the TV clean, but I will probably use it for my glasses. The only thing I don't like is that there are two strings hanging down with little handles on. These are for releasing the lock if you want to dismount the TV and I do worry that kids might pull them. It should be easy enough to just hook them over the frame or use blu-tack to hold them out of the way.
Given that this works perfectly well, I really can't see why people are spending upwards of 10 times the cost of this for other brackets. I paid for next day delivery and it was still cheaper than the cheapest bracket in Argos or Currys. If I ever decide to wall mount the downstairs TV I will absolutely get another of these.
