Tilt Mount

Optimum HDTV viewing levels with positive & negative vertical

By providing vertical angle adjustment, this wall mount type makes it easy to compensate for a TV positioned above the optimum viewing level. The tilt mechanism causes the TV to be spaced a bit further out from the wall — typically at least 2-1/2". Common applications include TVs mounted above a fireplace or high on a bedroom wall. The angle adjustment can also help to counteract screen reflections from windows or room lights — an issue for many plasma TVs and some LCDs.

This style TV Mount works perfect for mounting HDTV's at higher than eye-level, such as, above fireplaces and/or toward the ceiling. Different models have varied ranges of motion but the vast majority provide between 10 and 20 degrees of tilt which is normally ample for most installation situations.
