Fixed TV Mounts – Pros & Cons

Before you think about buying any type of fixed TV mounts, it is important to know where you are planning on mounting your TV. Fixed TV mounts are the most limiting when it comes to brackets as they hold the TV flush against a wall.

As a result of their limitations and where they are positioned, they do not allow any extra movement horizontally or vertically and tend to be the cheaper option to purchase. It is also a good idea to bare in mind the cables that need to be plugged into the TV, as fixed TV mounts can make access difficult.

Consisting of two parts – one part that is fixed to the wall and the second that is fixed to the back of the TV – fixed TV mounts have one particular advantage, whereby they sit flat against a wall, with usually an extension that reaches an inch. However, several disadvantages to fixed TV mounts include the screen is not movable once mounted, while someone sitting on the side or the floor would not be able to see the screen well.

However, if you are thinking about fixed mounts, you need to find out whether or not your TV is able to be wall mounted and if it will successfully attach to the LCDTV wall mount bracket. One thing to bear in mind is that it all depends on what TV model you have, as each method of attaching the TV to the bracket can ultimately be different. Make sure you know how your TV attaches, which will help you to purchase the right one.

Particularly suited to flat screen TV’s, the fixed LCD TV Wall mounts are usually the easiest to install compared to tilting and full motion wall mounts, as they only require two parts. However, because they are flush against the wall, in order to change out any of the cables you would need to remove the flat panel from the wall in order to change the cables. A feat you would not have to do with a tilting wall mount or a full motion wall mount.
