I plan to take the TV off occasionally ... do the 2 bars that attach to the TV allow you to tilt the bottom up and remove the TV from the mount with the brackets attached? (if so, it would allow the bracket to fold into a 24"W x 15"H x 3.5"D recessed box)
Yes, the t can easily be removed as the vertical brackets get screwed on to the tv, then hook to the mounting plate. It would just be a matter of loosening or removing the set screws that lock it in to the plate. I found this to be a very sturdy bracket. I have a 55" Sony. On it but it would easily carry the weight of a 70" tv.
We used this to mount a TV on our back patio. We were able to mount it to a brick wall within a short amount of time and it pulls out and articulates well. we really like that we could adjust the tilt as well.
Did well. I installed a 40” Samsung on it. Performed as expected. Very reasonable price. One complaint would be that on the part of the bracket that bolts with lags to the wall - need to have more ample mounting hole options. I had to drill where the studs were. Not too big of a deal but takes more time.
The mount was easy to install. I installed it by myself. I installed a curved TV on the mount so the screws were almost to short. I had eliminate the washers on the lower part of the TV. The mount is functional but does not give as much 'full motion' as a single arm swing mount. Regardless, it works for the open space it was selected to support. It was also inexpensive which is always a plus.
I purchased this to hold a 48" LCD tv (26 Lbs). Its doing ok but it appears that the mechanism sags under the moderate weight of the TV. I took the TV off and leveled the tilt. When I put it back on it still sagged. For the price it is what it is
The product looked promising and in fact looked like pretty good quality for the price. The problem I have is that it does not extend long enough to swivel a 42 inch TV 180 degrees. I never mounted it, but I measured it and there is no way it could swivel 180 degrees. You can probably get 120 degrees at best. With a smaller TV you may get more degrees. The specs should mention this so consumers don't waste their time.
I am providing a rating of 6 on the documentation and not the quality of the device.
CONS: States for up to 55 inch and 55 pounds. had a 55 inch 42 pound Samsung and flush to the wall I was afraid the TV would not be held to the mount. It was tilting down with set screw tightend up. Wouldn't use on anything over 25 pounds.
Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about your experience with PID 10484. Note that the display screen size is only an approximation. Your TV is compatible with this mount as long as your display has a VESA mounting pattern and weight that fit within the size and weight limits listed. Would you happen to have the make and model number of your TV so that I may recommend a proper mount for your TV? Please let me know. I apologize again for the inconvenience. Thank you for your patience and understanding in the matter.

Good Buy... Buyer Beware of Compatibility Issues with inputs... read on
All in all, this is a good mount for the price considering the fact that it tilts, swivels, and turns. However, I mounted a Sony television with recessed HDMI inputs in the back - no problem there. The issue is/was that the Sony power cable and optical audio out happen to not plug in to the recessed area. Rather, they plug straight in to the back of the television. The plate that fastens to the back of the television obstrutced access to these 2 critical ports. To no fault of the mount, we had to do some modifications. The power cable was able to slip through one of the vents in the back plate mounted to the TV. Unfortunately, we had to drill through the metal mount to access the optical audio output. So... make sure you dont have anything plugging in to the back of the TV (on the outermost bevel) and you should be OK. One other thing... the 42" Sony we hung didnt offer much flexibility in where the mount itself attached to the television. In the end, we had about 2-2.5 inches of black mount arms hanging below the television. Lastly, for those who complain about the mount not being able to handle the tilt... THAT is what the allen key is for in the mount box. Use it tighten the interior bolts on the tilt panel behind the mount snugly to get your tv to sit where you want it. Once the tilt is set, I highly doubt you will be titling to another angle.
PROS: Light weight
Easy to mount
CONS: Back plate on tv-side mount is solid
Sticks out farther than desirable when set flush
Not ideal for 47" with TV mounting screws set low on the rear of television
