Default TV Wall Mount

Got a new Samsung 48" series 5000 TV and looking for a simply to install fully articulating wall bracket. I got this one which is a PITA to install and does not have the right TV to mount screws.

Cheap but like I said a PITA and wrong screws - https://www.walmart.com/ip/46470585

Am thinking of this it is most like one I have had before and looks simple

Any other suggestions?

I just ordered the full motion one from Groupon. We shall see what it's like when I get it.

Just my opinion but if I was going to mount a 48" tv I would want a mount that would attach to at least 2 studs. The one you show will mount on one. Might be fine depending on the weight but like I said I would prefer one that would span 2 studs.

Monoprice has a good selection

Thanks I hear ya

My old TV was on a one stud mount and weighed about 40 lbs. This new larger one weighs only 30. So long story.... but I am using the new TV on the old mount and using the newer mounting on the old TV in a location where the mount will bolt through in to solid 3/4 plywood wall. I also want the TV to stick out into the room several inches and to be able to tilt left right up and down.

I got mine from monoprice about 3 years ago.

I'm pretty sure this is the one. It's pretty nice and what I recommend to anyone needing a mount that can articulate

I just used one of these cheap mounts to hang a tv 9' off the floor in my garage and it seemed to have every possible combination of mounting screws and options avaiable. I don't joke when I say it must have come with 10 different combinations of screw sizes and lengths. Each size contained 4 screws. It also had a set of arms able to be adjusted in multiple ways. It's similar to the one you don't like but has tons of hardware. The TV part is removable to install on the TV. You then lift the tv and hang it via a tab and put to screws in to lock it down. I was able to do it by myself while standing on an 8' ladder although my tv was only a 32". Like yours it's an older tv I think weighs more than my current model 65" tv.

I didn't wind up needing to use the arms as the main back plate had a hole pattern for my tv. If your complaint about your original mount was lack of hardware, this mount had an assortment.

That looks pretty slick. What I liked about my old mount was ease of installation. You bolt the wall plate on the wall and the mount on the TV then just slide the mount (and TV) down the wall plate -on the wall end, With the new ones you seem to mount the wall-plate/mount onto the wall and then slide the TV and its mount onto two screw slots and then tighten anchor it with a 3rd.- on the TV end - seems like a job for Hudini. I think I got that old one shown below at wallyworld but can't seem to find that one anywhere now.

This is basically what my new mount is.Yes there were tons of screws but none for the Samsung TV I have. I will try to get the right ones at the hardware store tomorrow. Thanks for the encouragement. I may just try this one.

Another vote for monoprice. Inexpensive and good quality. Used one of their pull out articulating ones to mount a tv on cinder block wall in my basement.

I've hung a few 50"s flat screens using $25 brackets that came from Walmart. Nothing at all wrong or deficient with the brackets. In fact I hung a TV for a buddy using a bracket he had bought at Home Depot and paid $125 for, there was absolutely NO difference in quality between it and the Walmart brackets, both made in China.

They key is with the installer, IMO you gotta hit the studs. Toggle bolts in drywall would not give me a warm & fuzzy....

I have this one and it tied into the back of my Samsung a-ok.

Mounting an articulating arm is a bit funky... It doesn't center over the stud which can make centering it properly a little tricky....

But, it's well built, strong and has a huge ton of mounting accessories.

Good luck!

. Thanks and thanks to all. That looks exactly like the one I have but mine is a different brand name it came with tons of mounting bolts . It even had the right size diameter bolt for my Samsung but not long enough I'm hoping to find in the hardware store today. But
