Technical - LCD TV Mount II

Last Changed 11/18/2010

In LCD TV Install we mounted the LCD TV using its base on the slide out shelve in the TV space in the entertainment center.  What we found that we were losing some of the richness of the display because the screen was vertical and not tilted to our viewing angle. 

Since the TVs base did not provide for tilt, we came up with a new solution.

LCD TV Mount We started with a MOR/ryde TV1-003H vertical TV mount. 

This mount would provide vertical alignment of the LCD TV but not tilt.

The MOR/ryde mount would provide a "wall" for a wall mounting TV bracket.

Since the pivot plate had to stay, we had to come up with a way to attach the MOR/ryde mount outside of the pivot plate.  And we did not want to rely on just using screws into the wood pull-out drawer.

LCD TV Mount We used 1"z1"x1/8" angle steel to make braces for the MOR/ryde mount.  Friend Larry Moore welded the angle braces to the mount.

The assembly was then painted..

We used to keep a couple of binders in the corner of the TV cabinet.  The angle on the LCD TV interfered with that location but there was a space crested behind the mount that the binders fit.
