LCD TV Mounting Brackets Installation Tips
There are many LCD TV mounting
brackets available and people try to find it difficult to buy the best one for their needs. Maybe it's because
there are too many choices to go for.
Before you buy your LCD bracket, you need to have an LCD TV at home. Then you
can go ahead and search for the best bracket for your TV. The thing is, the LCD televisions come in different
sizes, which means also that the matching mounting devices are available in different sizes. So you need to know
for sure what size your TV is in order to get the size that fits it well.
The next task it choosing where the TV will be placed. Will it be on the
ceiling or on the wall? If it's on the wall, you most probably want to place it in your living room so that the
family can enjoy a good evening of television when everyone is gathered together. Also what material will you have
as mounting bracket? TV mounting brackets are available with
fastening hardware and depending on what you get, whether it's of wood or concrete, the hardware will be different
Another aspect you need to consider is the issue of cabling. You need to make
sure that the LCD TV mounting brackets have plenty of space for cabling. Of
course there are mounting devices that come with the cables already on them, so that should save you some money
and time when installing the whole setup.
Depending on the ambient of your living room, you can choose a mounting
bracket that suits it well in color and style. Luckily there are so many colors available to choose from that you
will not have a problem of matching the LCD TV mounting bracket with the room decor.
Finally you need to take into account another important aspect: will the TV
be fixed on the wall, or do you want to move it a bit up and down or left and right, depending on your needs? Based
on what your preferences are, you can find mounting brackets with various flexibility levels: fixed, tilting and
swivel. If you go for a fixed device, you won't be able to move your TV even an inch. The tilting one will allow a
bit of movement, and the swivel has the most comfort available as you will be able to move your TV quite a lot
around. This is also useful if you place your television in the kitchen and you need to move it according to where
you are sitting or standing at the moment, in case you're cooking, etc.
Of course, depending on the type you buy, the price will follow it as well.
The cheapest of all is the fixed bracket, and the most expensive is the swivel bracket mounting device. Many people
found that in the long run buying the swivel mounting brackets have been the most cost effective
