Honestly, in Bangkok there aren’t many fireplaces, but the Mantel Mount is much more versatile than you might think. In my edit suite, I have times when I am editing that I need my 60″ 4K UHD monitor down low at eye level. Then when I have clients come in for a viewing it really needs to be up high. The Mantel Mount with its 24″ of vertical travel is the perfect solution to prevent my sore neck syndrome from staring up all the time.
The assembly is straight forward and I had little trouble putting the Mantel Mount together. Mounting it to the wall was no harder than the standard mount that I had been using. Which, by the way, had begun to sag from the weight, even though it was rated for heavier weight. I don’t see that as an issue for the Mantel Mount. The unit is firm and well constructed. It does take up a little more space from the wall but in my use, that isn’t an issue. Also, the swivel gives me the ability to position for how many people are in the room. there are panels that cover the hardware that can be painted to match the wall. Your wife will love that part.
If you do have a fireplace, this is the ideal solution. They have heat sensing handles to make absolutely sure that you or your TV don’t have a meltdown.
Tech specs are impressive. The Mantel Mount can hold TV’s from 48″ to 80″ and weights of 30 to 115 pounds.
I absolutely love mine and I am certain that you will love yours. Here is the link for the website to order yours.
