    Works great, but had to buy screws separately

    I bought this wall mount on sale along with a new 60" LG 60UJ7700, as this is the mount Best Buy specifically recommends for that TV. I looked around to compare prices, and Best Buy's sale price was literally the best buy, so I ordered it at the same time as the TV. The bracket is easy enough to mount yourself with the right tools (stud finder, power drill, socket wrench, etc). Great. BUT, it turns out that the mounting screws shipped with the bracket are not what you need for the particular TV I ordered, so whatever TV you're buying, double check if it comes with its own mounting screws, and/or if the screws that come with this bracket will work for your TV! The LG 60UJ7700 TVs need 4 x M6-1 20mm long screws, but the M6-1 screws that ship with the bracket have lengths of either 10mm (maybe 12?), and 35mm, so neither of those will work! I had to run out to Home Depot and scour through their metric screw drawers to find some that were the right diameter, thread pitch, and length to get the job done right. Best Buy, why do you tell customers to get this wall mount if it doesn't come with the right screws for this TV? Anyway, our new TV is up now and everything seems to work ok. The latch mechanism works well to hold it in place and let it slide horizontally to get it centered (the only degree of freedom for moving/rotating the TV once it's mounted, other than the slight forward/backward tilt range), but once everything is set up against the wall, there's really not much room to do anything else behind it. So, do yourself a favor and plug in the TV end of all your cords before putting it on the bracket, because you won't be able to reach the ports after its up. And good luck if/when you need to get it off the wall again -- my wife rigged up a bent hanger to reach the spring loaded release hooks when we realized we had to tighten the set screws *before* putting it on the wall.

    Slim design, almost too slim.

    I purchased this mount for my new 65" TV. The install went fairly smooth although the wall template and instructions could use some clarification. There are two spring loaded clams on the bottom of the two pieces that mount to the TV that lock onto the wall mount. You have to pull the springs down to release it from the wall. Also, there are stops on both ends that prevent the TV from sliding off one of the sides. Now the bad news. This mount is advertised to fit up to 70" TV's. I don't recommend using this mount for any TV's larger than 60" for a few reasons. (1) the tilt adjustment knobs are almost impossible to reach by hand because the distance from the edge of my TV to the knobs is farther than my arms can reach. (2) since the tilt knobs are not reachable it is difficult to tilt the TV to access the spring loaded latches on the bottom of the wall mount. This proves to be a big problem if you ever want to take your TV off the wall. It is VERY difficult, at least for my 65". Trust me, I had to remove my TV and it was quite the juggling act. I was certain we would damage our TV in the process but luckily no issues. Good news is that your TV will never fall or bounce off the wall. (3) This mount is pretty slim which is cosmetically pleasing but if you have connections on the back of your TV like I do (and you can't adjust the tilt to access them) they are difficult to access. I had to use a mirror while standing on a ladder to see where to connect my cables. After the cables were properly installed I found that the TV was so close to the wall it bent the cables at 90deg and smashed them against the wall (not good). In summary, this is a very secure TV wall mount but I only recommend it for 60" or smaller TV's due to accessibility issues.

    Sturdy Mount with minor issues

    I did some research and wanted a wall mount that would free up desk space. I use a Samsung UHD TV as a monitor. The small uber expensive monitors aren't worth the asking price. So I wanted to make sure I had something sturdy that would hold my TV without having to spend a fortune. This mount was chosen over an extending arm mount because I sit directly in front of my computer desk. I use a 40 inch TV and it can support a bit of weight. The TV comes with mounting screws and spacers. I had issues with the spacers being too long and the screws being too short. I had to take a bit more time than I like to saw all four spacers in half so I could use the proper screws that fit my TV. I took a star off because whomever designed this did not take this in to account. Besides that it came with a stencil so you could mark the wall you plan on placing the mount on. You can also slide the TV to the left or right on the mount to center it for a better viewing experience then lock the mount so it won't move. If you decide to buy this make sure you have the proper mounting screws and spacers in the box before attempting to mount this on the wall so you can save time and energy. It was a universal set of screws that come with this so keep that in mind.

    Think before you mount

    I have a 60" TV. I chose this because of the price and the ability to angle the TV. I needed to hang my TV rather high on the wall-much higher than the normal consumer would - so note that. We added an outlet so it would be hidden behind the TV. Here are the challenges: 60" TV's are rather heavy - so it obviously takes 2 people to hang, Using the hooking technique as instructions suggested may not work - neither of us had arms long enough to manipulate the hooks to pull up to get the mount to "click" while we were holding the beast. The bottom of the mount attached to the TV would never engage. We ultimately had to take and end cap off of the wall mount and slide on. 2nd challenge; once it is installed - you have to have slim enough arms and strong fingers to tighten or adjust the knobs on the mount. 3rd issue; we should preplanned where the electrical outlet should have gone based on the mount. Even with the TV angled-it is hard to get behind. Had we had 4 installers (2 with really skinny arms on ladders to help adjust while 2 held the TV up) or if we would have really preplanned based on knowing all of this-I would have mounted about 6 " lower and installed the outlet in a different place. Also note - a normal TV plug with a standard plug is difficult to plug into the outlet with a low profile mount. I couldn't plug the TV into the outlet due to space so I used a flat plug surge protector to fit - then plugged the TV into that. Wasn't quite the plan - but adapt and overcome!

    Very Easy Installation

    This unit is very easy to install. The cardboard template makes alignment on the wall easy. The width of the wall plate makes it possible to hit studs pretty much regardless of their location. My placement was pretty much as off center as imaginable, but it worked. My interior walls have 24" centers, so if you have 16" centers it'll be easier still. Drill the holes, screw in the four bolts. Attach the unit to the TV, hang it up. It clicked into place so easily I was almost afraid to let go! Then you can slide it side to side to get it centered where you want it. Lots of horizontal adjustment. There is also leveling screws on the mount to adjust about 1/2 in up on each side to level it. The only thing I needed to do was buy a 90 degree HDMI adapter because it's so tight against the wall that I couldn't angle it down the way I wanted to. My TV has the HDMI low down on the TV. So it hit the wall. But because it tilts up and down, I was able to pull the HDMI, put the 90 degree adapter on it, and plug it in without unmounting the TV.

    Excellent Mount / Great Safety Options

    Purchased this mount for my new Sony XBR 65 900E. I had always used Sanus products but after looking at this mount I decided to give it a try. Great decision. Includes everything necessary to mount (love the template) and the safety features are excellent, Leveling is a breeze and the locking feature is not only a great feature it is also quite easy to release if necessary. After installation I was so impressed with the mount I ordered a second unit to replace a mount in our bedroom for the extra locking safety features. Many shy away from the Rocketfish products. I was hesitant but the outcome was excellent and I returned a Sanus to Costco for the second bedroom mount. This mount is also attractive with nice ends of the mount. I also purchased Rocketfish HDMI 4K HDMI cables and my picture exploded in vividness and audio pass. Very happy with my purchase and rarely write reviews but felt this one was warranted for such a simple device that exceeded expectations.

    Good simple mounting bracket

    Good basic mounting bracket, however it leaves very little room behind the TV. This could be a good or bad thing based on your application. Good, if you want your TV tight to the wall. Bad if you aim to hide all of the cables behind the TV as I did, but then could not because there was not the room to do so. Also 90 degree Coax connectors or even HDMI connectors are a must have, otherwise a coax cable connections will push the TV to tilt upwards.The bracket was easy to install can came with plenty of hardware to meet whatever mounting application you might be getting yourself into. However the Lag bolts for concrete and wood studs require a 1/2" Hex bit so be sure you have one. All and all a good wall mount if you are keeping it simple. If you are looking to do anything cleaner or requiring strong cable management, I recommend spending the extra money and getting a better bracket. If you are just putting it up on the wall, good mounting bracket.

    Overall very good

    I like the TV mount overall. Easy to assemble and mount to a wood framed wall. Appears to be very sturdy(neither me nor my 28 yr old son could shake it once we had everything tightened down). We had to remove it once (you will need to make a hook from a coat hanger to release the top locks) to adjust a cable and we found that doing the opposite of what the instructions say works better. Instead of tilting the TV backwards to hang, we found it easier to lean it forward, get the bottom clips under the track and then lean the top toward the wall. You will hear and feel the locks on top snap into place. One other suggestion I have is to use the spacers regardless of the TV back. There is very little room to reach in and tighten the adjustment screws to lock the TV in place. The spacers definitely helped even with our flat back LG TV. Check out the picture.

    32-70 inch Rockfish Mount tiltable

    Posted
    VinceNaples

    I bought few weeks ago and mounted a 55 inch Samsung 4K tv to my living room wall. The mount is very easy to mount to metal studs. I used 4 sheet metal screws with heavy treads into the 2 studs. I also added 2 toggle screws good for 75 pounds each to one side of wall mount (no stud). No issues the mount is in there like a rock. I have done this on at least 4 tv's of different size. If you don't trust sheet metal screws use toggle bolts. My only issue was the bolts which attach the holders to the tv weren't the length I needed for the depth I want from the wall. Bought longer ones and a few washers to use as shims and customized my death to the wall. I wanted a bit more depth to get my hand behind the tv when mounted to plug and unplug wires. You can also release one of the bottom hinges and pull tv away from wall for the added depth as indicated by another reviewer. I rather not unhook the bottom of one of the hinges but that's an option vs longer bolts and washers and just adding maybe 1/2 inch depth to tv depth to the wall. Overall like this mount a realy sturdy and easy to mount to wall and easy to hang tv as long as second person can help you lift tv to mount. You can also move tv after hanging by inch or so if you need to center on wall. Also good feature. Make sure you tighten side hinge handles which provide the adjustment for the tilt feature. Overall great mount for the money.

    Nice mount, but directions to install were so-so

    I bought this to mount my 48 inch TV. Installation is very straightforward with the available mounting template for location on the wall. The brackets that attach to the television are sturdy and easy to install; however, the directions on how to determine TV mounting height on the wall leave something to be desired. I followed them exactly, but because the way the brackets had to be mounted on the back of the TV (since the back of the TV was not perfectly flat), the TV ended up being 5 inches lower on the wall than I wanted as the brackets were not able to be mounted so they would be in the vertical center of the TV. So I had to remove the wall mount, and reinstall it higher on the wall to ensure the TV would be at the height where I wanted it. The directions do mention using spacers for mounting the brackets on uneven TV backs. But the spacers were too deep for the included screws.  I could have gotten longer screws from the hardware store, but the brackets would still not have lined up on center. Even with having to improvise a little, it is a good mount for the money - it was on sale for 60% off; however, I don't think it would have been worth the full price cost.  I would recommend if it is on sale, but not for full price.

    Easy to put up... does the job... here is a tip...

    I wanted to hang my 65" Samsung. It was easy to do and I am not the handiest with tools. Though, measure twice right? It does seem sturdy. It is VERY close to the wall, with not a lot of tilt. If you are looking for a lot of tilt, look elsewhere. So here is the tip...I got the idea from reading reviews that mentioned how close the tv was to the wall. So you attach the mount to the wall, and then the tv with its own mount 'slides' down into place and latches in firmly. Don't worry if that doesn't make sense yet, it will when you get the unit. Problem is, to unlatch the tv later (for whatever reason, moving?) you have to be able to reach behind the tv quite a bit towards the center and pull down on levers. I think I mentioned the tv is VERY close to the wall? I could see that my bear arms wouldn't fit behind the tv to unlatch it, a thin person, a child, maybe, me? No. So what I did was tie string to the latches and have it dangle behind the tv just out of sight but well within reach of my fingers. If I ever need to unlatch the tv, i just have to pull the string like a rip cord. Anyway, good and secure. Easy to install. Maybe a bit pricey, but hey, the tv wasn't cheap.

    I used this to mount a 55” Samsung flat panel above my fireplace. The studs in the wall didn’t allow me to center the brackets exactly in the middle of the mantle, but there is enough room to slide the clamps that hold the tv left to right to allow the wall mount to be mounted off-center while still keep the bracket from being visible and the tv centered with the fireplace. It is a low profile tv stand, which makes it very close to the wall. The issue with that is there is not much room to fit your hand between the tv and the wall to add connections, so it is best to make all the connections initially to avoid the hassle later. This of course will vary depending on the shape of the back of your tv and the size of your hands, but mine didnt leave much room. If I had it to do over again I would spend a little more and purchase a stand that allows you to pull the tv out to make connections and adjust it to be viewed from different parts of the room. That said, this one is heavy duty and functional and I got a good deal at $39. Prob wouldnt buy it again though due to how one dimensional it is.

    I needed a new mount for a 55 inch tv to be hung in our new home. The tv to be hung used to be our family room television, and was previously used on a full-motion mount. In our new house, the tv was to be hung in our master bedroom and, therefore, needed no full-motion capabilities. The reason I selected this mount was for its slim design - I didn't want 5-6 inches between the back of the TV and the wall, it's just too much dead space. For the price, this mount is perfect for our needs. It's slim, durable, and adjustable once mounted left - to - right (this comes in handy if you need to mount the tv to a stud that isn't directly centered on your wall, as it allows you to hook it to the stud and slide the tv itself to the left or right to keep centered). It also allows for a tilt in the screen if desired. Overall I am very happy with the purchase and would recommend to those who want a slim mount, that can handle a beefy screen, while providing a little bit of flexibility regarding placement/adjustability.

    Purchased this mount on Black Friday for $39.99, and I am very pleased. Sadly a plastic piece of my mount came chipped on one side so that is the only reason for a deducted star. However, it is not noticeable and has nothing to do with its mounting capabilities. I'm pretty impressed myself that I am still giving it such a high rating when normally I would be going crazy over something like that, but the mounting itself was such a breeze and its design is very elegant. I'm irritated with the reviews stating that it does not swivel. Of course it doesn't! It would clearly state that in the description if it did.. it does tilt up and down. One bonus that I did not know of until later and am thrilled about is its leveling capability. Once your flat screen is mounted (of which I recommend that you have all your cables hdmi/audio optical etc plugged in before mounting because it's difficult otherwise) there are two philips screws on the back that you can use to adjust the level positioning on the tv in case you weren't able to get the mount itself perfectly level, and I find that wonderful especially for my OCD.

    Average Mount, no hardware for my Samsung TV!

    The reason it gets 2 stars is because the mount itself is OK, it isn't as good as the Sanus I bought before for my other TV, but as this one was on offer ($39) I went with it instead of the Sanus. I thought it was really good values. It is pretty sturdy but the clips are poor and it doesn't really give you a whole lot of confidence. The Sanus is holding my 55in LG and this one is holding my 40in Samsung, I trust the Sanus more even with the heavier TV. I would have given it 0 stars if it were based on the instructions and hardware included. The largest screws were M8x35mm, which are supposed to be used with the included spacers. When you put the spacer on, the screw was nowhere near long enough to thread in to the TV. Had to go buy smaller spacers (no longer screws available at my hardware store). The instructions were awful, and I can safely say that if I hadn't have mounted a previous TV, I would have really struggled. Disappointing considering this had pretty good reviews.

    Great mount if you want a snug fit with adjustable tilt on any wall. I own and have installed three of these mounts. One on the uneven surface of a stone fireplace, one in a 6 inch deep cabinet on a bedroom wall, and one in covered outdoor living area on a brick wall. The best thing about them are that they are built from a thick gauge steel that will hold up to the weight of you flat screen television and then some if you mount them correctly. They fit snug against the wall to give you the low profile look you want with the newer 2" thick flat screens. I had to use a few washers for spacers on the one mounted into stone just to even out the mount, but it was not difficult. Having mounted them into different wall types, I would recommend using the lag bolts provided into studs for a framed and sheetrocked wall, but do yourself a favor and buy some tapcons to use if mounting directly into brick or stone. Don't drill into the mortar, go directly into the brick or stone with a hammer drill. Brick is very dense and time consuming to drill. You may also wear out multiple bits at about $4 each, but it's worth it to know your $1000-$2000 television is secure.

    The initial prep work was easy to follow and required some experience with a drill and tools, however it was not very difficult. For use on interior walls, the bracket is a bit difficult to maneuver and zero in on a best location because of the 24" stud spacing. This makes direct stud mounting difficult. However, if you can get the bracket mounted to one stud, you can use capable toggle bolts to secure the rest of the bracket. The universal mounting system does a good job if you do not have your OEM mounting system for your television. There are several different spacers and bolts to choose from based on your television manufacturer. Attaching the television bracket to the mount was very easy. Securing the bracket was a bit difficult for someone with large hands. Because of the slim nature of the mounting system, there is little clearance to secure the television bracket to the wall mount. You'll need a tall ladder and a long screwdriver to be able to get in and tighten down the screws. The tilt mechanism is smooth and secure. So far, this has worked without fault.

    This is the first time I have used a wall unit to hang a TV. Wall mounts range in price from about $20 to over $100. I was a bit skeptical about lower cost units they looked to contain less metal and rigidity. Selected a mid-range unit and glad I did. The frame that attaches to the wall is very stout and will hold significant weight. The kit provides 4 heavy duty lag bolts and once bolted into the studs is not going anywhere. The kit provides every size screw available to attach the TV to the wall mount so no issues there simply selected right size and mounted the uprights to the TV. Attaching to the wall was a piece of cake. TV is well anchored and not worried about anything falling off the wall. I tried the detach mechanism and it came off the wall easily and went back on easily.

    A sturdy, no-frills mount worth the money.

    We found this mount an excellent purchase for the cost. Compared to other $100-ish mounts, it is well-built, easy to put together and easy to manipulate the TV with. One caveat of these mounts, as always, is that the only real behind-the-TV space you'll have is the angle that the TV leans away from the wall. So that means if you have lots of things you want to put in the back of your TV, like protruding HDMI sticks, you'll want to look elsewhere. Also, if you have long cables, they might be a huge hassle trying to straighten and hide behind the TV. In the ideal world, someone buying this mount would have a small recess in the wall where they're planning to place the TV to run those cables and plugs. But if all you want to do with your TV is plug in a Chromecast or if you have a cord setup that's amenable to a relatively slim profile, this mount does everything you'd want it to do. Perfect purchase.

    The Rocketfish tilting wall mount is a good one if you need the tilt feature. It also gives you a bit of room to make or alter connections. The release mechanism is easy to use for removing it from the bracket. If you plan on installing a recessed power wall plug, you need to establish exactly where you want to mount the main bracket first, as the hole in the center is not going to allow for a lot of adjustment after the fact. Your best option is to install the outlet horizontally. Always look for a mount that allows for leveling adjustments after mounting, as you may install it exactly level, but visually it doesn't look right due to the ceiling or something else nearby not being level. There are adjustment screws on this one. With a tilt mechanism, you have to accept the fact that it will stick out farther from the wall than one that does not tilt.
