    hi, im wanting to hide my tv inside my cabinet and then raise it out of the cabinet when i want to use it. i cant find a product to do this anywhere. maybe im just not looking hard enough, but your help would be apreciated.

    the tv is 20" wide and would need to be lifted around 500mm

    thanks mike

    These exist but are not cheap.

    Should try watching a few episodes of Pimp my ride, using window motors they have made everything from privacy screens to a 32" plasma come up from nowhere. Depends how handy you are though really.

    Just realised how unhelpful that actually was. Try looking at companies like Audipack, Wilhelm Lifts.

    Have a look at http://www.tvliftkit.com

    There is info on there to make your own.

    I am thinking of having a go myself in the future, doesn't look too hard or expensive !
