      Exelent Wall Mount! Dont Hesitate

      i already have one of these, so when i needed to put another tv on the wall in another room why wouldnt i get the same one? a third of the price you could pay, but at least half the best buy price. the product: supports most vesa standard mounting types, i just put a 40" led tv (25lbs) on this mount and it stays up just fine, this mount holds up to 60lbs, my 60" plasma weighs 66lbs so that will give you an idea of how much a tv weighs. this mount has tilt up and down and side to side with a full motion, i use it when i am in bed and also when i am on my eliptical machine on the other side of the room, i just extend it out away from the wall (about 10 inches) and swing it around so i can see it while i am working out. it is constructed really well and looks and feels solid, high quality product 5/5. a really great design in this product is the mounting hole placement, there are only two and they are vertical so you only have to find one stud in the wall to mount it. uses two screws to mount on a stud, not sure if they are included or not but you can get them at any hardware store, make sure you get screws that are rated for 100lbs or more to be safe, and you can find the stud on your wall by doing one of the following: try a magnet and run it along the wall until it sticks, if it does you have metal studs, you can drill right through them, if your studs are wooden, you can just knuckle tap the wall until the tone changes from hollow to dull, if you live in a newer house the studs should be 16"(center to center) apart in the wall, measure 16" from the left and right of the nearest light switch on the wall (the light switch casing is attached to a stud in the wall, it is either on the right or left of the stud, so you know for sure that the first stud is there),mark a little x on the wall on both marks and tap to see if it sounds hollow, the duller sound should be the stud. if your house is older the studs may be 24" apart. you can buy anchor bolts that will hold a tv on the wall by just going through the drywall, but i wouldnt do that, too risky!. dont be afraid to do it yourself, its easy, you could also run your cable from your box inside the wall up behind the tv, no one will see behind there so it doesnt have to be pretty, just run a level up the wall from the cable outlet and make a small hole and fish for the cable, you can do it!, a plate for the wall costs about $2. good luck! :)

      Unstable and Flawed Design

      I needed to raise my 65" television and purchased this wall mount on sale at $149. I didn't really need full articulation, but thought it would be nice to have should the need ever arise. Using the mounting template proved to be simple, but I did note that this mount does not allow much room should your studs be any wider than the normal 16" you should commonly find. It also meant that you have little to no play in moving it to either side should your studs be off center to where you would like to mount it. After getting the main frame up, I mounted the arm. Having already placed the brackets on the back of the television as directed, it was not a simple task to place it on the arm as it requires you feed in the end of the arm to a small opening. After getting that sorted, I allowed the TV to settle, adjusted as necessary, and tightened in the lower screw to secure the television. It did not take long for the television to settle yet again, and then I found the biggest flaw in the design. The final two mounting screws are a hex head. On the screw, from the factory, they have applied loctite. When I went to loosen the screw, it immediately began to round out. I removed the television directly from the brackets and removed the arm so that there was no weight on it. The next attempt at a turn completely rounded out the head. I went back to the store for replacement parts and talked with employees who surprisingly did not have good opinions of this mount. I ended up returning it and getting a tilt mount. That went up in 15 minutes from start to finish. Solid, secure and with a wider mounting plate that I could move off center. I'm not sure how this mount has so many positive reviews. Perhaps they have changed the design? Maybe people expect it sag to one side or the other? I don't know, but I would recommend spending a bit more for a more secure articulating mount or going with a tilt mount if articulation isn't necessary for you.

      Lots to consider before buying a mounting bracket

      I purchased this bracket to wall-mount a Samsung 45" TV in an upstair playroom on drywall. I selected this model because I had previous experience with very flat mounts which did not articulate a provided very little cord clearance or any room for mounting a DirecTV Genie to the mount. I thought I had it all figured out until I went to mount it. Here's what I would do differently next time an why I might consider another model: 1) Most mount manufacturers assume studs are at 18" centers on the wall. In this case, they were not because of the configuration between two doors. I struggled and was able to use this mount after some compromises. 2) I had the builder center the wall plug on the wall where I expected to put the TV. It turns out the center is not always the best position to hide an outlet because of the bracket mounting requirements. I had o cut off part of the wall plate o allow the bracket to mount flush. 3) This particular bracket had a horizontal bracket right across the top of where the Ac electrical outlet plugged into my particular Samsung TV model. I started to try to hack saw off a portion (not a good idea, too strong) and ended up having to go buy a flat head AC plug that fit this TV model, removing the mount (after going through all the trouble above to mount it) and the bracket did indeed fit over the plug. Check your plug location before you buy any bracket! 4) I ended up with the TV on the wall, but he bracket is not centered which means the TV is not centered unless I bring it out away from the wall and I have several drywall holes to patch and paint. In summary, I got the result I wanted but not without a lot of time and pain. Perhaps with some research and better preparation, I could have selected a model which I could have mounted more easily and ended up with a better result on the wall.

      Very well-designed TV wall mount - recommended

      Posted

      This a very robust TV wall mount, with a clean design and wide flexibility in positioning. I purchased a different wall mount product earlier this year, and I was limited to mounting it where a wall stud was located. This wall mount uses a frame that is attached to two adjacent studs (16" spacing) and the frame can be mounted off-center (by maybe 2"). The TV support arm can be mounted off-center on the frame (by maybe 8"). This allows the TV to be positioned virtually anywhere on a wall. This wall mount is very robust. The manufacturer claims the wall mount can support 100lbs. I principle, I believe this claim (the metal structure is very sturdy), but personally, I would not want to hang so much weight on the support arm, if the arm would be fully extended away from the wall. The assembly is straightforward and easy to accomplish. All necessary hardware is provide (except the masonry anchors necessary for mounting to a concrete wall). In fact, a wide variety of machine screws (two different sizes in many different lengths) are provided for attaching the TV to the mount. There is little chance that it will be necessary to buy additional hardware to mount your TV. This is a well designed and executed product. I am impressed.

      Functional but poor quality and customer service

      We bought this for a 50” 4K television and I would consider myself an experienced handy person and this was my 3rd wall mount installed in our house. Strike 1 was when I had it all ready to go and put the lag screws in and the seals bag ONLY HAD 3 SCREWS. Apparently counting to 4 is complicated. Called my local Best Buy store and they stated I had to box and return the entire thing rather than swap out a hardware kit. So, off to Home Depot to get a replacement lag screw and washer which I had to paint black. This was by far quicker but frustrating. STRIKE 2 came when I tried to secure the TV secure screws and the bottom hole seemed undersized because I nearly stripped out bit screws and damaged them trying to tighten. Tried swapping screws and same result so defiantly a hole tolerance issue. TV is still not able to secure completely down tight. STRIKE 3 was when I called rocket fish for replacement hardware and they stated it’s no longer available even though the mount is still sold in stores. COMPLETE AND UTTER DISAPPOINTMENT. Customer service on both ends horrible and hardware is seemingly very cheap. First and last rocketfish mount. Period.

      Decent mount, could be better

      As a Geek Squad Installer for Best Buy we have just recently used this mount. It is not as versatile as previous Rocketfish Mounts which was a little disappointing. The mount only has two slots on top and bottom to accomodate the lag bolts. Typically, most mounts have several slots in case the studs are not 16 inches apart or you need to offset the wall bracket for any number of reasons. Considering this is a full motion mount that will be used in corners, only having the two slots at a standard distance, with little room to adjust the placement of your TV, can cause an issue and a possible return. If TV placement doesn't have to be specific this is a really good mount. It is very sturdy, the motion is smooth, and the arm is generously long. If TV placement needs to be specific you might be better off going with a Sanus or an alternate Rocketfish mount.

      Great, But Be Aware On The Install

      I have had several tv mounts previously and this is the best yet. I used it on a 55" TV. Although I don't need to rotate the tv much for viewing, it is so much easier to access hookups from behind with the ability to rotate it out. And I do this once in a while because I move my Comcast cable box to another room sometimes (hate paying monthly for another cable box for infrequent use). The mount is sturdy as can be and feels like I could do pull-ups on it, although I wouldn't recommend trying! My only criticism involves the install. The instruction manual referenced a link on Best Buy's site where you could put in various measurements and it would calculate the mounting height of the bracket so your tv is centered at your preferred/ideal height. This was helpful because my tv mounting holes were not centered on the tv (they were lower). I input all the numbers (and checked them twice) and ended up with a tv 5 1/2 inches below the intended height. Nothing that some putty and paint couldn't overcome. But, I was a bit annoyed that I had to take it down and move it up. Overall, a great mount and worth the money.

      Gets the job done, could use improvement

      First, the pros; it swivels, tilts, rotates, all that fun jazz. In terms of those things, I'm very happy. Now, the cons; first of all, the instructions suck. Things like "mount the horizontal bars onto the back of your TV". Okay, great, which end goes up? And there's about 40 holes on this thing, which ones do I use and why? Turns out that it is to allow you to mount your TV higher or lower on the bracket, but without any context or knowing if you NEED it higher or lower, it really doesn't tell you very much. Almost every part of this thing is adjustable, but nowhere are you told when or how to adjust it. For instance, the wall mount has 4 slots (not holes) through which to put the lag bolts. That means that the entire mount can be shifted however you want. That's great if your studs are slightly off center, but it's a nightmare if you're trying to center the thing above a fireplace on a piece of plywood. Finally, while every single tiny aspect of this thing can be adjusted (which I like), most of the adjustments need to be done during the installation and can't be changed afterwards (well, not without removing the TV first anyway). Once you get everything the way you want it, the range of motion is incredible. They've just done a poor job in helping you to get to that point.
