I had recently purchased a 75” inch 4K television that weighs approximately 85 pounds, is about 6 feet wide, & 4 feet tall. I mounted it on an older full-motion wall mount bracket that was left behind by the previous home owner. That bracket (unknown manufacturer) worked well but it was always difficult moving the tv to any position other than flat against the wall. I was never comfortable with the thought of this bracket holding my new tv so I looked into buying a new bracket.
After drilling down through hundreds of brackets to one that met my size & weight parameters I found the Kanto. With all the great ratings I opted for this one.
The moment I opened the box & saw how it was packaged I knew I had a quality product. Everything was neatly laid out, the multitude of screws, spacers, & washers of various sizes for mounting the bracket to the tv were separated in slots, all the brackets pieces individually wrapped, & the instructions were right on top. This may seem silly but this wasn’t like so many other products just crammed in a box with the parts all in one plastic bag.
The instructions are not written out, instead it is done all with hand drawn pictures. It only took a few minutes of looking through the instructions to figure out how it all went together. Assembly was done in a sequence that was easy to follow & resulted in a well built & very sturdy unit. There is a small wrench included but I opted to use a socket wrench instead (use metric sockets).
Included is a thin cardboard template that is taped to the wall once you’ve located where you’ll eventually hang the unit. It has open slots in it that match the bolt hole pattern in the frame so you can see exactly where you’re drilling your holes. The package came with lag bolts appropriately matched for this bracket which I used as I was mounting mine to the 2x4 studs inside the wall (There are also wall anchors for mounting into brick or concrete included in the package). As I taped up the template I discovered a small fold-out tray at the bottom that catches the dust & debris as you drill; no mess to clean up afterwards.
Once the bracket was installed on the wall it was simply a matter of lifting the tv (with it’s part of the bracket already installed), guiding it down into the receiver slot of the wall bracket, & tightening the final three bolts to tie it all together.
The unit is well built, works so smoothly, & my tv sits securely in place. The tv now glides away from the wall & turns easily left or right with no effort. This mount is worth every penny!
