Articulated arm mounted to countertop

Up till now, we have been watching a 13" picture-tube TV/VCR combo. Normally, it sits on the cooktop cover beside a small DVD player. This ensemble would be moved to the dining table when we wanted to cook.

While constantly moving the stuff got old pretty quick, it took me until now to finally look for and find the LCD TV/DVD combo I wanted - A 15" Sylvania, model LD155SC8. sold me a small-TV articulating arm for, in my opinion, less money than the part is worth - the mount's construction is impressively beefy.

The TV mounting plan going in was to mount the arm to the rib running up the wall behind the cooktop. The rib's placement was such that the TV would articulate out of the cooktop's way. But after much finger stroking & gnashing of teeth, I decided that I was not going to be happy with the results from either an aesthetic or life-of-installation viewpoint.

I am much happier with Plan B - A steel bracket mounted to the countertop:

Not shown is how the TV will be tethered together to keep the arm from articulating while on the road. It will probably be a combination of elastic material and Velcro.

Once I get a short extension cord, the TV will be plugged into a non-galley outlet.

During the thread, the discussion moved to wall mounts. No one answered about mounting beneath the overhead credenza cabinet.
We have a Panasonic 24" LED TV, and it weighs 8 lbs. Is there an issue with the TV traveling with the screen facing down? We would "lock" the TV in place beneath the overhead cabinet.


We have the 2004 30' Classic model, with the front couch and the dinette, separated by the credenza.
I was wondering when I saw that bracket whether the TV could be mounted to hang from the bottom of the overhead cabinet that is immediately above the credenza.
Has anyone mounted their TV so it hangs beneath this overhead cabinet?
