This under the cabinet mount is well made and is certainly capable of holding the rated size of TV in the vertical postion. It has enough adjustments to allow for easy rotation and vertical movement of the TV. The problem I had was in keeping the TV in the horizontal postion under the cabinet. It always wanted to drop down several degrees even though the TV only weighed 10 pounds. No matter how tight I made the adjusting screw it still dropped. I don't like counting on friction to support the TV. This problem seems to be true with all of these types of mounts. None have a locking device to keep the TV in the horizontal position. I solved this problem by using a simple hook between the bottom of the TV and the cabinet. I used the existing screws that would have been used for the TV table mount which was removed for this installation. Now the TV stays horizontal and is easy to drop down.
Well, I was really happy to finally get my 13" led tv off of my kitchen counter, but it didn't quite work out. Everything was going great until I tried to keep the tv vertical but it just would not stay. It would always tilt back about 3/4 of an inch (+/-) and aiming it down towards the countertop/floor. The dogs and cats see it almost perfectly. I was actually hoping I could aim it up a few degrees for better viewing, but I would have settled for at least vertical. Didn't happen. The bottom of my cabinets is 53". I need to be able to angle it up for proper viewing. It is too bad because the bracket looks real sturdy. The allen head set screw works great except it will not keep it vertical. If I would have a hard ceiling it would be perfect. The set screw would hold it perfectly angled downward. Two stars.
PROS: Made of good solid material. Would be great as a ceiling mount, like an office or room with a hard ceiling as long as you can find a good solid place to attach it.
CONS: Will not stay vertical and will not tilt less than 180 degrees (tilt the tv so it aims up). Not really for undercounter use. Not useable for me.
needed to mount my 19" TV under the cabinet in my camper, this mount did the job just fine. Just one question, Monoprice listed as up to 17" TV, the instruction stated up to 27", mine was 19".. Am I missing something???
I had a couple of problems but I'd say they were fairly unique to my situation. First my cabinets have a lip making my mount area too deep, so my tv would hit and couldn't be mounted. I got around this by adding a half inch piece of scrap wood between the mount and the cabinet bottom above. My second issue was the fact that the included screws were too long and would go through my cabinet bottom. To avoid this, I measured the depth of the wood, marked my screws and taped off my drill bit so it wouldn't go too deep, and then I just pre-drilled a little over halfway through the wood. I then put the screws in a vice, cut them down with a hand saw, and hand screwed them in through the spacer wood and bracket I mentioned earlier, into the slightly smaller pre drilled holes. It took a little longer than I had hoped but it was a really easy setup and chances are most people wouldn't have to go through the lengths I did to install this. If you have trouble with the screw lengths and don't want to cut them down, just go to the hardware store and buy some shorter screws, I just wanted to get it mounted that night and decided to go that route. I highly recommend this mount over anything you'll find in a bestbuy or costco, you just cannot beat the price even with shipping.
PROS: Relatively easy install, very sturdy feel, includes all of the necessary hardware, doesn't sag for my 19" lcd
I'm using this to wall mount a projector in my office. I have a drop ceiling and figured i'd mount my projector to a column in the center of the office instead of going through the hassle of cutting through the ceiling tile up to s real suport structure. Works great for small projectos, just have to fiddle with the mounting plates and screw points a bit. it was a gamble, but it paid off.
PROS: Sudo wall mount projector solution. Comes with lots of mounting screws
Great bracket, and if I ever need another I will order it from MonoPrice.com. These brackets were out of stock for quite awhile, but I was notified when they came in, placed my order right away and had the bracket within a few days. Great service.
PROS: This bracket was easy to install and works like a charm! Does not loosen, swivels properly and is exactly what we were looking for.
Pretty basic setup. For under cabinet in my kitchen with a 19" widescreen lcd. Actually used 6 drywall screws to mount under cabinet. Using the drywall screws allows you to just drill them in, then inside the cabinet you can "snap" off the excess screw sticking through the cabinet bottom. Then nothing poking through. Loving that I got it for $10. Also got a IR repeater and the cable box resides on the top shelf of the same cabinet out of site.
PROS: Simplicity, solid hardware, abundance of VESA bolts.
CONS: Instructions are a little too basic for a novice. Swivel feature is not the best but works after the lock nut loosens a bit.
