Hi all
I bought a 60 inch sony LED from Harvey's over the long weekend.
As we want to wall mount it can anyone recommend a wall bracket that will allow us to pivot it away from the wall (ie one edge of the TV is closer to the wall than the other) at an angle?
The TV has a bit of weight to it (35kg) so it needs to be a fairly robust bracket.
Any suggestions or experience with one like this?
Cheers

We have used the following bracket plenty of times for this sort of request, it's certainly a solid heavy duty cantilever bracket.  I haven't purchased from this particular website though.

Same bracket from TradeMe.....

I am looking at getting this one:  60kg 63" swivel/tilt... seems to be available from several suppliers.


For my LG 33kg 55"

Thanks for the replies.

OVerkill/Gordy do you know if the mount you suggested bolts to a single stud or to 2 of them? Ie if the backplate fits 2 600mm stud centres?
I know some wall brackets have funny sized wall plates that arent really suited to NZ stud spacings.

None of the various swivel/tilt brackets I have found appear to have a wall plate that would span to 600mm spaced studs.
I don't like the idea of the brackets for 40 to 60kg load hanging from a single stud.

You might want to look at this one... It has two wall plates that are intended for fixing to two corner walls.
It looks like you could fix the wall plates to a flat wall and pick up 600mm spaced studs.

I've installed 2 of these at home.

https://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=MOABRA0027

for my 50'' plasma (old, think it's >40kg) and a 40'' LCD
Easy to mount, except for the weight of the actual bracket when holding above your head. (2nd person holding it made it easier)

Seem really solid on the walls, into the center of 2 studs.

When we bought our house we put our 46 inch Sony up as previous owners had taken away their 60 inch tv.

Used a stud finder and was staggered to find that none of the previous holes were into stud.

Ie 60 inch tv attached to plaster board only.... They were very lucky..

Things to look for :
600mm wide spacing for the wall plate.
Cable management built in,
A guarantee from the seller that it won't sag over time (very common on the cheaper brackets I've helped installed into peoples homes on occasion).
A NZ or Aussie safety guarantee.
I'd recommend the best as Vogels or Sanus.
2nd tier would be OMP.
Everything under that wouldn't get to touch my new plasma...

I'm going to make my own custom one when I get around to wall mounting our lounge TV.

May have found a contender

http://www.jaycar.co.nz/productView.asp?ID=CW2825&w=Wall+bracket&form=KEYWORD

The latter two options in the link both fit 600mm stud centres and have weight capacities of 80kg.
Have seen similar ones for the same price on trademe"

For those interested the above 2825 model at jaycar seems to fit the bill. Had a quick look at lunchtime and it is a single arm bracket, can carry 80kgs and fits the 600mm span of 2 studs.
Once I gain the wife's approval I will probably head down that path.

Cheers

The Jaycar CW-2825 online drawing image shows that the wall plate bracket would only fit 450mm studs.

But the text describing the bracket which I missed previously: and installation on 450 or 600mm stud centres.
