Chief TS Thinstall Reviews

They aren't cheap but you really can't get much better

You get what you pay for. Hanging the TV wasn't as easy as their LTM1U mount. Your target is much smaller, but this serves a specific purpose. The level of engineering and adjustment on these mounts is really impressive.

nothing bad to say.

Been reselling them for years. We generally check to see if there is an issues with the input board on some TV's. That is called planning. Never had any one of their products break, ever and I have been in business for over 30 yrs.

Tough to install

IN general the bracket does a good job but the instructions, being for multiple brackets, obfuscates the proper method of installation. Additionally, the top bracket needed higher quality control. The main bracket could not be installed per the instruction sheet. I had to bend the wall bracket to get the mounting bracket to fit. The bottom track was bent too far for the main bracket clamp to go on correctly. The wireways for TV feed cables are inadequately sized for the size and number of cables to be handled. There are also a few pieces of self adhesive, with no instructions as to where the heck to put them.

nice solid mount but....

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.

Very strong and thin.

I have this Chief Thinstall holding a 65 Sony Z9D mounted with a Sonance soundbar and a our old Nintendo Wii behind it. Despite being slightly over the size rating, Im under the weight limit, and Im confident this mount is rock solid. All the other equipment is behind the wall, so it looks nice and clean.

the best swing arm around

I am very happy with the Chief TS325TU TV Mount. I installed it last week on the front of a custom built-in cabinet in our living room. The bracket is very well made and heavy as a result, but that's not a negative. It feels very solid. I took my time so as to be sure to measure twice and cut once as they say. Since my installation was a bit unusual, I had to purchase bolts and stop nuts rather than use the lag screws that come with the mount, but other than that, the kit came with everything I needed. The installation was very straight forward and looks very clean. After installing my 55 Sony Bravia, I dressed the power, Cat-6 and three HDMI cables through the channels in the mount very easily. Since my equipment resides in the built-in, I used a 1.5 hole saw to create a hole near the mount through which to pass all of my cables and I used Velcro cable ties to dress the cables along the back of the TV toward the channels in the mount. The result is an incredibly clean mount with tremendous flexibility and range of motion. I am very happy with the result. It is the best mount I've used so far.

Great Mount!

Chief lists this model as supporting up to 75". Everywhere else lists as up to 58". Which is correct?
Asked by: Ezra
The important factors when choosing a mount are supported weight and mounting hole pattern. This mount supports 125 lbs. and mounting patterns from 100 x 100 to 800 x 400mm. With these specs there are many TVs larger than 58" that this mount would still work with. However, since this mount extends up to 25" from the wall, a 90 degree swivel would only be possible with TVs up to 58" diagonally.

question

Thank your for replies on my question, I realized I was not specific enough.It is a quality mount, yes.My TV is 44 wide. Specs on mount says it extends 25 forward. I infer I should be able to pivot the TV 90 degrees (this point is essential for me):25 > (44/2) Is this correct, or there are some other factors at play, and I will not be able to swing it? If so, anyone can advise other mounts? (Option to hang mount forward off the wall to extend the clearance is not going to work for me, it have to be close to wall when collapsed). Many thanks!

I can now answer my own question, perhaps this can be of use to someone.In case of this mount, I guess TV cannot be fully turned because of two arms in place of one - they create something like a broken triangle, limiting articulation.Thanks to B&H customer help, I had other suggestions:1) Premier Mounts AM100 Low-Profile Ultra-Slim Swingout Mount (Black) B&H # PRAM100 Mfr # AM1002) Peerless-AV SUA746PU Universal Ultra-Slim Articulating Arm TV Wall Mount (Black) B&H # PESUA746PU Mfr # SUA746PU3) SANUS Premium Series VLF525 Full-Motion Mount for 51 to 70 Flat-Panel TVs B&H # SAVLF525B1 Mfr # VLF525-B1I ultimately chose #1, better choice for a similar price. Great quality; also has a low profile; yet swings 30 on a single arm.Others are also quite nice, although #2 is a single-stud mount, and #3 is too pricey.

question

I need to hang a 50 class LCD TV.Does this wall mount allow to swing TV 90 degrees to the side?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, the arm is not long enough for the sides of the tv to clear the wall. Try a ceiling/pole mount instead of articulating arm.
