Looked forward to fixing small flat screen to ceiling in inside porch. Followed mounting directions - easy enough. Mounted TV, latch wouldn't catch. Tried fixes listed here. Nothing. Yes-VERY Poor design - wish I had read reviews earlier
WAS TOO HEAVY! TOO BIG AND HEAVY DUTY FOR A 20 INCH LED TV FOR RV USE
Yes, i hung a 50" LG tv on this thing in my 2022 Entegra Vision RV under my front bunk bed. I had to build extra wooden reinforcement because the bed has a 3/16" piece of wood as base.Then comes this device. I want a big screen tv there because someone decided to install 20" TVs at the factory..I modified it to accept a 1/4" pin as a lock because the factory one wouldn't hold a 25lb TV. Everything is ok but i will have to replace the LG with a lighter TV because i don't trust this TV mount and don't want 40lbs falling on my head while I'm driving down the road..So, can it take a 50" TV? Yes it can.If you need one just for your house, no problem, but keep in mind that the TV won't stay at 90 degrees, i stays at about 80.
The locking mechanism is very inadequate. It worked maybe once or twice. This issue should be addressed by the manufacturer. With the number of complaints posted here, they are under a huge liability by ignoring this defect.
