My 40" Television Mount

My Motorhome had a 27" LED it was ok but I am hard of hearing and wanted to use the Amp. and surround sound. The 27" did not have sound output even though it had a optical output jack and with some research it was not available on this lower end Samsung.

I found a slightly used Samsung 40' LCD smart TV for sale that is somewhat to very thin only 2" thick or deep.

As this Motorhome is suposed to, sort of be my hobby. I set out to modify and with great time and effort. With some 2x4's, 3/4" plywood, shelf glides, springs, tilting TV wall mount, and some hardware. with lots of measuring and mockup and trail and error this is what I came up with.

I reach under the TV and slide back 2 brass latch bolts, and the springs help me gently lower TV. To raise TV lifts easy and I extend brass latch bolt bars

The TV mount tilts and locks with some rubber stops and when raised matches angle of cabinet but tilts to 90' or more when down for watching.

I was going to just put a roller blind, or roman shade, or a curtain above the TV but, picked out a cheap frame and a clock and made it up. It slides in beside the couch when not in use.

Now I do not have to look up at the TV as it lowers 18" hopefully it will ease some neck strain and or keep me from falling asleep.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Great work. It's nice to see you lowered it to eye level rather than forcing yourself to look up all the time. It's the one thing the builders just cant seem to grasp.

This will also help with dry eye

Yes, this will help prevent a stiff neck. However, most people do not realize that looking-up, for extended periods, let's the fluid in the eye evaporate

great idea, you can even hook up the rear view camera for back up or seeing if the toad is still there...

I'd say Dougsee3 deserves all the "Satisfaction" he wants from a job well done. :-D
