A mounted TV is also much safer. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimates that TV tip-overs account for 18,900 emergency room visits each year, 66% of which are children nine or younger (see report). A mounted TV eliminates this danger.
- Weight: Your TV should weight less than the weight capacity of the mount.
- Screen Size: Your TV’s screen size should be within the recommended screen size of the mount.
- Mounting Hole Pattern: The mounting hole pattern on the back of your TV needs to match the mounting hole pattern capabilities of the mount.

When the handle is pulled toward you (against the spring tension, as if the handle is the hand of a clock and you are lifting it off the face of the clock) rotating the handle does not affect the bolt or tilt tension.
To tighten the tilt:
- Pull the ratchet handle up (or towards you, against the spring tension) and rotate the handle counter-clockwise as far as possible.
- Let the spring pull the handle down (away from you, with spring tension) and rotate the handle clockwise as far as possible.
- Repeat steps 1 and 2 until bolt is tight. Mount should then hold desired tilt.
To loosen the tilt, simply reverse the above steps.
