Can anyone suggest a good fixed wall mount for a 65" LG C9?  So no tilt, swivel etc.  Just fixed in place flat against wall.

The basic one from Noel Leeming has been fine for a 65" Panasonic, came with quite a few different sized washers/spacers and screws.

I'm pretty happy with the quality of my Loctek tilting one, here is the fixed equivalent for $49.99 at PBTech.

Yeah, I guess that's more or less what we want.  However, the data and power recess sits out maybe 5 mm from the wall at the moment. so one that goes around that might be ideal.  Although, I think we can take the lip off the recess, so it's flush.  Then the TV mount could go straight across it.  I'll need to check that.

How high up on the wall are you wanting it relative to your main viewing position?

 

I know you said a fixed one, but with mine slightly tilted downwards towards the viewer on the couch, I have a bit of a gap for cables/access.

Hmmm, good point.  It'll be mounted slightly above seated head height.  Tilting might be worth looking at then.  I'll have a sit and measure.

I'm using the same mount as what ShinyChrome uses, and is built pretty well. 

 

Mine is also mounted above seat height - and the tilting makes a world of difference.

Yeah, I think that looks like what I'm after.  Can you have the TV not tilted with this if and when you want?

Absolutely, it articulates anywhere between 0 to 12 degrees and its pretty easy to adjust by hand.

So, I grabbed one of the PSW792LT Loctek mounts and the sparkies put it and the tV up yesterday.  I haven't had a proper look/play yet, but is the a way for it to lock back into vertical?  Also, how do the quick release tabs, or whatever they are, work?

From memory, when the mount on the TV is attached to the mount on the wall, it hooks on the top part and the bottom part just clicks into place with spring loaded clips. You need to pull the silly strings on either side to release the clips.

 

I don't know if it locks into place, but again, from memory, I think it has adjustable tension to adjust its freedom of movement somewhere?

The 'tilt' is not lockable, they are held by relatively tight screws and (so far) my TV has held at the angle I've set it at. If you'd like to put it back to vertical simply push the TV as a whole towards the wall.

 

The quick release tabs as ShinyChrome said is the mechanism that allows the release of the bottom section to remove the TV off the mount should you need to. These are magnetic and I hooked mine around upwards to hide them from sight.

Thanks for the feedback.  At first look it does seem to sag out a bit and it's hard to push back because the C9 is thin at the top and a lot thicker at the bottom where it connects to the bracket.  So pushing back on the thin top part doesn't feel ideal to do.  I'll have a play this weekend.

And this is how it all looks, set up.
