TV Mount

TV Mount

I don't have a lot of wall space to keep a TV so have beeen looking at the ceiling mount or under cabinet mounts that flip up out of the way (not the electronic ones, just the manual)
Have any of you installed this type of mount?

Brand and ease of installation or any special 'stuff' needed?

Thanks for any help.

Enokie,

Yes, I have installed an under cabinet, flip & swivel TV mount. I do not recall the brand, but the DW found it on Amazon for around $40 I believe. The installation was far more difficult than anticipated. What you cannot see from the picture is the fact the bottom of the cabinet is not a solid piece of wood. Since there is a reading light mounted there also, the cabinet bottom has hollow space between the bottom and the bottom inside. However, I was able to remove the floor of the cabinet on the inside and insert support framing (1 x 4 mounted to sides) and replace the cabinet floor. All I really needed the television to do was to hang and swivel, so I installed the bracket backwards, if you will (TV flips towards window) and placed it towards the rear of the cabinet. In doing so, I also removed the shades from the window to move it back further. (Note: this is a Class A and I had to run the coax cable from the front overhead cabinet where the television use to be located. I ran it through the over window cabinet and into this cabinet, then through the floor/bottom to the TV). The entire install took just over an hour and the television has been hanging there without any problems for over 3,000 miles. I did leave enough room to put a curtain rod up so the DW could cover the window with her curtain of choice - this was not done yet in the picture.

Thank you so much for your information, looks like I am going to have to find a woodworking person to help me out, but it is good to know what you did and that it is sturdy and safe... I appreciate your input, it helps a lot!

Try MOR/ride RV TV Mounts (google search). They make them for the RV industry.

Thank you 99AM star... these look perfect, but there are no dealers in Canada.

I will do some searching around, I am certain to find something close.

We stock the MORryde mounts and can ship them to Canada. However, a lot of folks don't like the shipping charges and the customs expenses, which unfortunately I can't control....

Here is my simple solution for dropping the TV for easier viewing during longer stays. The TV screws into a simple bracket that hangs from the cabinet.
Takes 10 minutes to switch around.

The original frame becomes a picture frame with a picture poster printed from Walgreens

I'm in the process of doing just that as I want to mount a 47 or 50" TV in the overhead location in front of the windshield. I wanted something I could mount to reinforced supports in the cabinet then swivel up so the TV is horizontal to the roof and secured with small cargo straps. I mean, obviously, I can't have a 50" TV hanging down in the middle of the driving area while in motion!!

I ordered and just received today Amazon.com : VideoSecu Adjustable Wall Ceiling TV Mount Fits most 26-50" LCD LED Plasma Monitor Flat Panel Screen Display with VESA 400x400 400x300 400x200 300x300 300x200 200x200 200x100mm MLCE7 1OB : Television Mounts : Electronics we shall see how well it works?? Building the mounting supports now.

Oh, BTW, my Yamaha surround sound receiver will mount in the TV cabinet as well as various sundry electronic items, i.e., network router, and maybe a sub-woofer.
