What are the differences in TV Brackets?
In selecting the proper TV bracket, first and foremost, confirm the bracket will support the size and weight of your TV. The weight of the same size TV can vary. There are 3 basic types of TV brackets, flat, tilt, and full motion, also known as an articulating arm. The flat bracket is the most common and allows you to mount the TV to the wall with no motion whatsoever. If you use this type of bracket, be sure it has lateral movement, which allows you to center the TV on the wall studs. The next bracket type is the tilt bracket. This bracket allows the TV to be tilted down towards the viewing area. The tilt bracket should be used when the TV is mounted higher on the wall or above a fireplace. This allows TV viewing without tilting back your head and prevents possible neck cramps. The full motion bracket allows the TV to extend off the wall and tilt left and right as well as up and down. Be sure that your full motion bracket extends far enough off the wall to allow full left and right motion. Larger TV’s require greater extensions. Please visit our website at www.wbsouth.com.
