    Offered myself a new pj and now there´s a little problem, the screen needs an extension coz i have a tv on the wall and i need to deviate the pj screen at least 12cm from the wall otherwise the screen will toutch the tv obviously :D

    So already made a search on the web but so far no extender detected for what i need, i guess i have to do some DIY i just don´t know where to start and i really need some ideas/help

    Thx in advance

    Daddy

    Could you not make up something yourself with some wood? maybe some cut down blocks of wood painted the same colour as the wall?

    Yeah I just screwed a couple of bits of 2x2 together, making it stick 4 inches off the wall with mine.

    Fixed these to masonry with rawl plugs, then simply screwed the screen to them using wood screws.

    It was all boxed in anyway so not viewable once it was done

    L shaped metal brackets are very cheap and come in differnt sizes usuall grey. Or just go round BQ or somwhere and look for insperation.
