Jan 22

How to choose the right mounting for your television. TV Wall Mounts: Which mount is the best one for you?

For flat screen TVs, there are three common kinds of television install mounts in Dallas.

  • Wall Mount that Tilts
  • Wall mount or Articulating bracket (also called full-motion wall mount)
  • Wall Mount - Low Profile/Fixed

There are a few things you should keep in mind when choosing a TV wall mount.

  • Maximum capacity for load bearing VESA mounts are possible with this wall mount (4 x mounting screw holes at the rear of the TV)
  • You will need to choose the type of wall where you would like to put your television. Exterior walls are Drywall that has wood studs, and Drywall with studs made of metallic.
  • This is how the cables at the rear of your TV are placed. For example the cable connections on the back of your TV are directed towards the wall.

What does the acronym VESA represent?

On the back of flat screen TVs and monitors, there are VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) defined mounting arrangement. The VESA mounting design has been used by the majority of producers of flat screen televisions and monitors. TVs with VESA compatibility come with four holes on the back (two on the top and two on the below) to attach a VESA-compliant mounting bracket to match the VESA mounting pattern.

  • Wall Mounts That Tilt

Tilting brackets provide the best compatibility and do not require any modifications to attach any flat-screen television or monitor compatible with VESA mounts.

  • The product can be used with LCD, Plasma, LED, OLED flat- and curved-screen televisions.
  • On any flat surface: Plaster plaster, drywall, wooden studs and drywall, and metal studs (interior and exterior walls). Tiled, brick, concrete walls and so forth.
  • Lateral Shift lets you center your TV in nearly any situation (the TV can be moved left or right on the wall plate).
  • The majority of tilting TV wall mounts we sell have enough clearance between the rear of the TV and the wall (between 2'' and 3.1 inches according to the type of mount) to reach behind the TV for an easy cable management and connection regardless of whether the cable is directed downwards, sideways, or backwards towards the wall.
  • If your TV is mounted above a fireplace, you can lower it to get a better view.
  • To get to the cables at the side of your TV move it upwards (on the majority of models) if you need to alter the wiring.
  • Extra-wide wall plates are available to support the mounting of heavy televisions. The extra-wide wall plate permits you to reach up to three 16-inch-apart studs (for a total distance of 32 inches).
  • Ideal for use with a component wall shelf to cover any cable slacks that are behind the TV, giving it a more neat and tidy appearance.
  • The wires behind the TV are simple to set up and maintain.


  • Although it's a little higher than Super Slim/Low-profile television wall mountings, this is a fair trade-off considering the other advantages it offers.
  • It doesn't swivel to either the left or right.
  • It tilts the TV both upwards and downwards, and it "Pops Out" at 5.7 inches, which makes it easier to reach behind the television. If you are trying to access wires that are behind a 90-inch TV, as an example, the pop-out feature can be useful. The pop-out feature is also beneficial in the event that the power outlet is in the middle of the television. This makes it hard to reach the outlet to disconnect the power cord.
  • Even with extremely heavy 90-inch televisions, tilting is an easy task.
  • The mount is described as a tilting wall mount however it does have some slight swiveling to the left and right.
  • The interior of the wall plate features large cutouts that can be used as a cover for the outlet or cable Jack.
  • Micro-level adjustment feature allows you to change the level of your TV after it's been mounted in the wall.
  • TV Wall Mounts with Full Motion

Full Motion TV Wall Mounts are available in two styles.

  • Full Motion Wall Mount with Single Stud Mounting (for smaller TVs)
  • Full Motion Wall Mount with Double Studs for heavier TVs

The following example is inspired by our SKU: 1281. The articulating bracket can be joined to a single stud, permitting smaller and lighter TVs to be installed.

Wall Mount Full Motion, with Single Stud Mounting

Our SKU: 1291 Full Motion Wall Mount is utilized in the following example. The wall mount is made to be mounted on two On-Center studs of 16 inches. Double stud mounts are capable of supporting heavier loads than a single mount. This makes it suitable to mount heavier and bigger televisions.

As you can see, the wall plate is considerably narrower than that of the Tilt bracket (which is the most common full-motion mount). It's worth noting that this mount isn't the only one that has narrow wall plates. Many full motion mounts come with narrow wall plates , and are made to be attached to studs spaced no more than 16 inches on the centre. There are just a handful of models available on the market allowing for stud spacing of as much as 24 inches the center.

The wall plate of most Full Motion Wall Mounts is just large enough to fit onto two 16-inch studs "apart-on-center is a phrase that translates to "apart on the centre."


  • Swivels to the left and right
  • The product can be used with LCD, Plasma, LED, OLED flat-screen and curved-screen televisions.
  • If you don't want your TV to be tilted, the TV folds against the wall. This is ideal for large spaces or at corners.
  • Some models can swivel 180 degrees.
  • A lot of the models we sell can be tilted downwards or up.
  • By pushing your television away from wall, you can easily access the cable connections at the back of your television.


  • Because of the design of the wall plate that is thin, there is a limitation.
  • Many people will not find it possible to place the TV in the correct middle location. It's dependent on the location of your studs. It's not recommended for use for walls that are narrow or located above the fireplace.
  • Most of the time the full motion mounts weigh more than other kinds of mounts. They also stand out more.
  • Even though typical stud spacing is 16 inches in the center but it's rare to find studs with a spacing greater than 16 inches, particularly in basements, or where the wall is joined by another wall perpendicularly on the opposite side of the wall. There are only a few full motion mounts are available that can be installed on 24 inches of spacing.
  • It is not advised to mount heavy TVs on drywall with metal screws or plaster walls on the exterior of older buildings and homes.
  • Are you considering placing your television above the fireplace? The position of the studs will determine the possibility of placing your TV over the fireplace.

Using an Full Motion Wall Mount to center the TV over the Fireplace

For a full motion TV to be mounted over your fireplace, first determine where the studs are. This will allow you to decide the possibility of having your TV centered over them. There's a good chance that the studs are exactly where you would like them to be for your television to sit on your wall.
