          Comments about Chief TS525TU Thinstall Swing Arm Wall Mount:

          I would give this bracket a 5 star rating if it weren't for the 8 tiny screws used to attach the upper and lower interface support bars to the tv.I found the directions were pretty good. There is a mistake on page 7 at note 16. It tells you to go to page 9 but it should say page 10.I attached their interface bracket to the back of the 50 lb TV using the typical heavy duty screws. Now you have to attach an upper and lower bracket to the 2 interface brackets that you just bolted to the back of the TV. This is done using 8 very small screws. 2 screws are used at each attachment point. This worried me a little but the TV isn't 125 pounds so I trust the engineers know what they are doing. The TV went onto the wall mount perfectly and was exactly where I expected it to be. A few days later I needed exchange the TV because there was a problem. This is where those tiny screws became a problem. The weight of the TV causes the screws to become extremely tight. I wound up stripping the head on one using the provided allen wrench. I think a hex head bolt would be better than a screw.

              this is a sturdy mount, and low profile. Highly recommend this even if you don't ever move your tv. This mount makes it easy to get at the plugs in the back of tv.

              Comments about Chief TS525TU Thinstall Swing Arm Wall Mount:

              Bought this mount for a 55" Sony going in a smallish living room, mounted above a Sonos Playbar. Wanted it to be as flat against the wall as possible with ability to swing out when necessary.

              I scheduled an installer to install for me but, after staring at the box for a while, I decided to take a chance and do it myself. Only took me a couple of hours and did it solo. Only needed help from my neighbor to lift the TV itself into place. Went really smoothly, looks great and very functional.

              Great cable management built-in, and it offers a 1" post-installation height adjustment which, from my research, is rare in a low provile model like this. Also, if you want to do some "minor" in-wall modification, they offer an in-wall mounting box that allows the TV to be flush against the wall when not extended.

              My only suggestion to the manufacturer: Drawings in the instructions should be larger and more clear. At times it was a little challenging to understand what they were showing. Other than that, I highly recommend this mount.

              If you know what your are doing, installing this is a breeze and only requires 1 person for the most part. There are cheaper mounts out there (and more expensive ones) but, for the features, this one is well worth the cost IMO.

              As always, if you try to install yourself, just make sure you know what kind of wall you are installing on and follow the correct installation instructions for that wall type.

              P.S. - I would give this item a 5 if the instructions were a little better. Enjoy!

                    We installed the TV Mount inside an existing built in cabinet made for the old "big box" TVs. With a 25" extension our new Sony XBR 55" pulls out easily to make connections and adjustments. The rack is fully adjustable to meet your needs. Installation is about medium difficult, but the included instructions are easy to follow. Technical Assistance from the manufaturer was great.

                      This wall mount makes it easy for my mother-in-law to adjust her plasma for watching in the living room or, by swinging it 90 degrees, in the dining room or kitchen. Tension in all the arms is adjustable. Installation is straightforward, but the unit is very heavy so be prepared to use some muscle.

                          I bought this mount to hang a new 65inch 95 pound TV. I have used alot of Chief mounts in my work at the TV station and I new thier products to be first class as this mount is. In my case the TV is hung in a built in entertainment center which means placement for both hieght and being level were very important. The mount works beautifully but due to the instructions assuming the TV brackets would be centered on the set caused me to have to install the mount twice because vesa hole patern on my set is offset, it had to be dropped down. Instuctions should be reversed to avoid confusion. On a open wall this would not be a problem.

                              Used w/ a 47" LED TV in a corner arangement. Chose it due to the length of reach. We could also upgrade to larger screen (but it would not fit in our setup) Instructions, parts are well done. More parts than needed. 2 stud attachment is great and allows side to side adjustment, slight up/down adjustment and tilt adjustment came in usefull as well. The 2 arms provide enough cable manegemnt to hide all cables.
