Securing the TV

I put in a swing arm mount for the flat TV. When I drive I noticed it moves around. Have any of you figured a way to keep it from moving while driving?

I think if you check in the Newmar section, maye even a sticky there, there was a section on TVs and had a pin setup to hold them in while driving ........ Good luck

This may be a good option. I can add a hook on the wall.

Check MOR/ryde for their locking mounts.

MOR/ryde TV Mounts

I'm actually in the middle of doing a remount for a new Samsung LED TV. Was going to use the MOR/ryde TV1--21H but decided to use a piano hinge. Still figuring out the rest of the box mods. Can't cut the box to size till I know exactly how the TV will fit.

We did go out with the new TV, however I used bailing wire (actually tie wire for rebar) and a couple bungee cords as a temp mount while parked. I put the TV back in the box for transport though.

We use the bungee method on our swing-arm mounted TV. When parked, we put the bungee on the steering wheel, to remind us to lower the antenna before we head off.

Works great for both uses!

If I put the OTA or satellite dish antenna up I hang the ignition keys from the OTR antenna handle. Can't drive off and forget it that way.

But, how do you secure your swing-arm mounted TV?

I bungee mine. Hooks at the back of the cabinet to points on the mounting bracket on the back of the tv. I have the tension set so they will hold the set in but you can still pull it out enough to get the bungees off and work behind.

My husband mounted our TV the same way. We have a livingroom slide that comes in infront of the TV and almost broke our window. So he went out and bought swim noodles to brace the TV. Our DVR sits under the TV, so we don't have to use too many. We also put a soft throw pillow in front for more protection. We do the same for the bedroom tv. Works Great!

Simplest thing I did with my bedroom LCD was put in two brass hooks and stretched a thin bungee cord between them.



The locking screws on pivot points wouldn't hold tight enough traveling down the road.
Gets real bouncy in bedroom.

I made a "U" shaped block with plywood that I slip down over the twin swing arms then I also have a screen door hook that connects to a screw eye on the back of the TV mounting bracket.

See post # 5 above if you're looking for locking mounts.
