The selection of your TV wall bracket is critical for good viewing and safety
If you have made up your mind to buy a large flat screen TV, then you also need to think about selecting a wall in your room and a good quality TV bracket to mount your expensive Plasma or LCD TV. Selecting the right TV bracket is not however a simple task!
What should you be looking for in a bracket?
A TV bracket is supposed to take the entire load of your large screen which is normally quite heavy, although very thin. A TV bracket with not enough load bearing capacity will fail and could make the large screen come down from the wall. You would not want this to happen.
Another critical consideration regarding the installation of the LCD or Plasma TV is the type of wall, whether internal or external or a concrete wall. The wall should be strong enough to support the bracket as well as the large screen.
After taking the above two factors into consideration you can then decide which features of the bracket are important to you. You can decide if you prefer a bracket which holds the TV in a fixed position or one that allows the screen to swivel or tilt or a bracket that conceals the cables.
