With a number of TV brackets available, selecting the right one can be a tricky task. Brackets are available in different designs with varying price tags and buying the right one is important. Here are some tips that explain the different types which should help you in buying the right one.
The first step is to check the size of your TV and VESA spacing. The distance between the mounting holes at the back of a TV is known as VESA spacing. It may be in a square or rectangular shape.
Make sure there is enough cable space in the TV bracket you buy. It may look good mounted but if it does not work there is no point in having it.
TV wall brackets are available in various shapes and sizes. If you prefer the TV to be close to the wall, a slim TV bracket is the ideal choice. Because they are as close as possible to the wall, swivel and tilting facilities will not be available though.
If a TV is mounted high up, tilt brackets provide an adjustable viewing range and are a perfect choice. Swivel TV brackets allow a TV to be pushed close to the wall, pushed out and rotated to any viewing angle. Swivel types are available with a cantilever arm or a fixed bracket that is not flexible but provides stability.
For the maximum safety of your flat screen, buy a TV bracket that is compatible and will hold the weight of your TV.
