I have ordered one but it hasnt arrived
I would really like to finish the wall I am building right now and if somebody could just measure along the top of the mounting plate on the wall and tell me the spacings for the fixings it would be a *massive* help to me right now.

thanks in anticipation

(ps i understand it is 800mm wide and 480 tall, I have ordered the top of the range job with tilt and cantilever PRO Tilting Cantilever TV Bracket Extendable Arm System)

Martin :lease::thumbsup:

Well I already had a plasterboard/stud wall, and wanted to strengthen it up before hanging a plasma bracket
So I have removed the plasterboards and I am now inserting aditional vertical studs. The problem is I want to get every one of the bracket fixing points through a vertical stud, and therefore I need to know where the fixing points are so I can line everything up.
Once the new studs are in I can fix new plasterboard back in place, re-plaster it and 'finish' the wall.
Then finally I can actually fit the bracket to the wall, knowing that it will be attached to something strong on the other side.
:thumbsup:

Thanks - fortunatly my tv location is a brick wall.

Have you tried their freephone

No 0800 0141725

it states its for orders and questions.

they ran out of the brackets at xmas and let a few forum users down but there stil should be some with the said bracket.

Im waiting on the same bracket but in black by the end of the month.

i also imagine you want to get the fixings centre into the verticals so guessing like i do is not an option lol

ope it goes well.

Why? If you want to use them all you might as well just build the wall out butted up studs i.e. solid timber!!!

That mount looks horrible BTW I wouldn't use one

Hi Horny,

So you wouldnt use one ??

But have you ever installed one ??

I dont care what it looks like at the price but would like even more feedback from those that have it / installed it ?

thanks

Once you start using articulated arms you notice the design flaws in many, those that have single arms have lots of pressure on the joints often too much for the thin steel used and they never sit true and flat in all positions to get them flat you need adjustment which isnt provided. After many years and many brackets there are reasons why we use the brackets we do. While the bracket is strong enough not to seperate it is unlikely to be well designed enough not to drift when extended.

Just not something i would use on an install

yes i understand , your right and if i had a 1000 - 1500 tv i would get a 200 plus quid bracket. Alas having a 5/600 tv then budget it is !

Roll on that 1500 tv !!

cheers

why?... because it will decrease the chances of the TV falling off the wall. I dont need to build the wall entirely of wood, becuase there are only a finite amount of fixing points, and they do not cover the entire wall.
I am not sure what point you are trying to make.
It's all sorted now anyway, and for what its worth, I didn't get the Dekomount in the end.
