The instructions were easy to follow and even helped do the math on where to place it on the wall. The mount is very sturdy and looks great with the included cosmetic covers. It definitely has ‘wow’ factor when guests see it pulled down!
So I consider myself pretty handy and this took hours to install! The directions were thorough, sometimes painstakingly so, and pretty easy to understand. I appreciated how the hardware (there is A LOT of it) was separated into little numbered bags. The final product turned out just as we hoped. Its sturdy, easy to operate and has freed up valuable floor space in our condo. The only reason I didn't give it another star is the amount of time it took us to install. I will also mention that this is a 2 person job mostly because of how heavy it is.
I found the pull down TV mount on line and realized it was a perfect solution for us. We wanted a fireplace but it also made mounting our big screen tv too high to comfortably watch tv. The pull down mount solved that problem. Now the front room has become our new social area and we can still use the fireplace during cool weather.
I was searching for a solution to mount my TV over my fireplace and having the option to bring it lower. Mantle Mount not only looks beautiful but gets the job done. We painted the bracket to match the wall and it was so easy.
When my wife and I purchased a house recently, one thing we really loved was it had a real wood burning fireplace, which for Los Angeles is something that is hard to do these days. The only problem was that the fireplace was in the exact spot I would want the TV. I’m not a fan of having TV’s mounted at standing eye level, that is designed for a setting like a sports bar. I wanted to have it lower.
Enter Mantel Mount. It allowed me to have the TV up high for when we decide to use the fireplace, probably won’t happen till next winter. It took some time to mount correctly, but the directions were very good. Not like Ikea’s hieroglyphics but with actually text. Once we got it mounted correctly, my first attempt was too high, but it was easier to move it down a few inches, I realized another benefit, I could move it slightly out of reach of my 2-year-old son’s reach. He loves pressing buttons on the sound bar. When my son goes to bed or nap, then I can lower it all the way.
I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to mount a TV up high, but have it able to traverse down to an optimal viewing angle.
Works great over our fireplace. A solution we needed for years to re-arrange our furniture to make our family room flow better. It is a bit difficult for me to pull down but I am a petite 57 year old female.
This new mantel mount, was more than I thought. It has been great. What a party favor trick. All the uh's and ahw. As my wife pulled it down. Would definitely recommend this product. Not because of the party trick, but it really works well. Eye level TV watching is great now. Installers were great also.
WOW this mount is awesome. I have been looking for a mount that does exactly what this mount does. This mount is being used outside above the slider door on our Lanai. The ability to be tilted and moved down to a comfortable viewing angle is excellent but to also rotate 30 or 60 degrees makes it perfect to be able to see from the pool. I did the install myself. I love the fact that this mount to me any way is very heavy duty. The directions were spot on. This is mounted to a solid cinderblock wall (yes the blocks were filled) that was stuccoed over. The use of tapcon bolts the same size as the lag bolts helped make installation as easy as can be. Took less than an hour to install on the wall. Double checked all the measurements and ensuring that the TV that I had already brought would would be centered to the space was the biggest concern. I like that this mount came with the wall plate covers and the sound bar adapter. The covers just needed a little scuffing for paint to match. I have not used the sound bar at this time, since the TV has bluetooth I can connect to various speakers through out the area. After getting the TV mounted it was easy to ensure that it was level to the mount and opening, again the directions were easy to follow. Adjusting the pull down is really easy too, not much was needed since this TV weighs 40ish lbs., the pull down was really factory close. I love the fact of self centering when raising the mantle amount back up. The handle is nice too, but the need for heat sensitive is of course not needed in this application. The neighbors are totally amazed that I installed it myself, (All had "professionals" install their regular type mounts for almost as much as they paid for their TVs), and each love all the features that Mantle Mount has. There are more inexpensive mounts out there however I believe that the sale price is spot on for all the features that this has. Anyway, relatively easy install and thus far love the quality of this product. I am glad that I waiting and found exactly what I wanted.
Mounted ours into a stone fireplace above the firebox. Love the "Pull Down" feature that allows us to bring it to a lower level that makes it easier to watch. Getting the mounts into the stone took a lot of time and effort to get that part done but the finish was worth it.
Since purchasing the MM540, I have had no complaints what so ever with this Product. I was hesitant at first as to whether a product like this would continue to function well. I have for some months now everyday moved the TV up and down with Zero issues. We all love the ability to be able to lower the TV so that our necks do not get sore from the strain of looking up. This is a fantastic Product and would recommend it to anyone.
Easy install onto stone fireplace. I used the template to locate holes, then epoxied stainless all thread to mount bracket.Then I painted the covers to match the stone, darker paint used to look like mortar joints.
