I need to mount a 42" panel above a window, and have it tilt down (facing down to a bed), and still clear the top of the curtains / curtain rail.

The standard cheapie mounts dont quite look like they will protrude away from the wall enough, and the person footing the bill had three heart attacks and a septic double inguinal hernia when we were quoted $999 at H.N. (then they offered a further 20% off, but $800 is still a lot).

Any other sources of mounts that extend + tilt? Or should I get a standard tilting mount and put it on a 3" wood panel then on the wall (concerned about strength / safety though).

If you sell these items in New Zealand, you are welcome to post a link to your store, or pm me.

Plenty of tilt & extensions Brackets out there.There are a few traders on TradeMe selling them for around $350ish.Put my own 42" plasma on tilt bracket system.Mounted the bracket with 3" cox screw bolts for added strength.Tilt brackets go reasonably cheap.As for the 3" board idea - don't no bout that, you'd need some long bolt screws & it could weaken the integrity.
