A flat screen LCD or Plasma TV is mounted on a wall using a TV bracket. Stylish TV brackets not only help in holding the TV securely to the wall at an appropriate height, but also save space in the room.
You can get TV brackets in a variety of beautiful designs with features that enable tilting and swivelling. This makes viewing from different places in the room more comfortable.
Certain types of brackets only hold the screen in one position and do not have provision for adjustments. Though they are cheaper, they make it difficult to position cables for DVD player connections or to connect satellite receivers.
The best way to select a suitable, perfectly fitting bracket for your TV screen is to buy one from a reputable bracket company. You may have to provide the model number of your TV, since there can be some difference in the design of two TVs of the same manufacturer having same screen size.
Many TV brackets carry a FDMI (Flat Display Mounting Interface) rating which guarantees that the bracket is manufactured as per the design specifications of the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA).
Ensure that load-bearing capacity is clearly indicated on the bracket that you buy. Do not exceed this limit even by a small amount. Also ensure that the wall is strong enough to take load of the screen.
