Sorry to hear about this! I think you should be able to use a Kensington laptop lock to attach the TV to the bracket, and assuming thieves don't come equipped to remove that from the wall it should prevent them from nicking it. That said I've gone to installs replacing TV's which have been damaged by thieves trying to wrench them off the wall as they didn't have the security type hex keys used on a lot of brackets which seem to do the job in most cases, apart from with the most determined (and stupid) burglar.

Thanks for that i think im gonna look into that i just dont want it being stolen again by little tow rags haha the tellevision cost me £1,600 im so glad the insurance are going to replace it.

Do most wall brackets come with a hole to allow you to put a padlock on it or do i need to ask for one that will allow a lock to be used?
