Nobody Puts TV in a Corner
Nobody! Figuratively, anyway. In the literal sense, many people do it and if you’re shopping for a television mount, you’ve probably found designated corner rigs can be pricey. FireFold’s WM-SM-SS-TSE is an affordable, flexible option. Whether you are, in fact, positioning your TV in a corner or you’re trying to accommodate a recessed niche or a wide viewing area, articulating mounts can be just what you need to get the effect you’re looking for. Articulating (or “full motion”) mounts extend from the wall, tilt up and down, and swivel side to side, making them extremely versatile. This one will handle most TVs with screen sizes between 32” and 55” and weights under 40 lbs.
The WM-SM-SS-TSE has a single extension arm that can pull away from the wall up to 22”. Completely folded up, it is less than four inches from the wall. Installation only requires one stud and the mount is small and light enough for a single person to complete the project from start to finish. It comes with full instructions and the hardware for classic wood stud mounting. For masonry or metal studs, you may need different hardware. Once hung, this articulating mount can tilt down 10 degrees and swivel a full 90 degrees side to side.
The Hole Story
The WM-SM-SS-TSE can fit VESA mounting patterns up to 400x200. But what does that mean? How do you know if it will fit your screen? It’s easy if you have your manual, a measuring tape, or the internet! Since you’ve obviously got web access, we’ll start with the latter. A quick query of the search engine of your choice can usually answer your question for you. Just be sure you have your monitor or TV’s exact model number as many manufacturers switch their mounting patterns from year to year. The VESA pattern should also be listed in the specs of your manual. If you don’t have the manual and can’t find the model number, or if you prefer to take a hands-on approach, you can calculate your VESA pattern yourself. Using a tape measure or ruler, measure the distance between the mounting holes on the back of the screen. Measure horizontally and vertically, not diagonally. There should be two numbers, both in millimeters. These numbers will be your VESA pattern.
