TV Replacement

Here is my take on tv replacement. This pic shows the metal surround that the old tv was in.

I mounted a 2x4 to the metal surround with bolts and pocket screws on the bottom, and padded out to accept the lag screws that came with the tv mount.

This shows the original oak trim reinstalled and closed out with luan plywood painted black. This also shows the velcro straps used to secure while traveling.

And finally the finished installation. The Tv is 1/2 in narrower than the overhead doors, works great.

Straps

If you don't already have them I suggest you get a couple of straps to keep the TV from extending on the swing arm while going down the road.

I originally used a single arm mount but it bounced around way too much for my comfort. I picked up a dual arm mount and it's pretty steady. I still strap it down for travel.

Nice job!

Locking mount is the answer.

On mine there were two screws on the bottom of the oak trim ring covered with a wood plug and two more screws up inside the trim on the top between the TV and the trim. They were easy with long screw driver.

We made straps out of nylon with velcro and screwed to the oak trim behind the TV and they work great.

I did not want to do a total cabinet redesign so this is what I came up with. I bet your wife will soon get used to new tv and avoid hitting it just like moving furniture in your house.
