Dynamica Mounting - TV Mount - Review

So, this is not a motorcycle product, but it is still a vendor experience and a good product. The wife and I just purchased a home and the family room really doesn't have many good locations for placing a TV. The best is over the fireplace, but we don't like to watch a TV that is hung that high up.

So, we started browsing around to see our options for TV mounts. We found Dynamic Mounting had a TV mount on some and had two configurations. One that brought the TV down and out from a resting position and another that brought it up and over, from maybe under a shelf or something.

We went with the down and out mount and opted not to get the swivel, as you can see the TV fine from any location in the family room, without a swivel.



That is where we wanted it, right above the mantel.



Here is the mount. It was very sturdy and came with a few different types of hardware to mount it. It did not come with hardware to mount to masonry though. Those fasteners are more expensive and probably aren't worth putting in every mount kit.

I held up the mount to the brick and the top and bottom rails matched up with the mortar joints exactly. This is when I knew it was going to be a quick and easy job.



I started off by drilling 1/4" pilot holes and followed each one up with 1/2". After I did it, I'm not sure it was really necessary to do the pilots. But it didn't take all that much more effort. This was only a one man job.



This is the hole pattern I ended up with, I pretty much held up the mount with one hand and then marked where I wanted the holes with a sharpie. I went with 4 holes along the top, just for good measure. I probably could have done 2, but why not do 4?



Here it is in the up position after we mounted the TV on. The TV hangs on the mount just about like every other wall mount or TV stand that I have used. Pretty straight forward.

I still need hide all of those cables, that's probably going to be the most difficult. My thought so far is I'll take off the mantle and cut out a channel in the back for the cables to run through. Then I only have to hide them in two small spots. From the TV to the mantle and from the side of the mantle to the cabinet.


Here it is in the down position. Much nicer to just be watching TV. There is a counterbalance adjustment on the mount so you can balance a whole range of TVs. I can lift and lower the TV with one hand and feel completely comfortable with it.

The kit did come with two plastic plates that can be color matched to hide the mount when the TV is in this position. We have not had a chance to work on matching ours yet. But, I'll follow up with pics once we do get it.

Also, as I was uploading pictures to my computer, the computer stopped charging and ran out of batteries. So, I pulled what pictures made it to facebook and am doing this at work. So, if my personal pc desides to charge, I'll throw up a few more pictures.

Their website is below. The customer service is great. Small company and despite not having a phone number to call, the responses are very quick.

It was $500. But we did the advertising stuff and got $100 back. It's pricey, but we don't need a tv stand now, so it kind of evens out.

Ya, no biggie. It's a 50", but a 4K. It fits the space pretty well. Our larger tv is in the basement.
