I would also add, as a note for those of you who have this pocket door setup, that there is very little clearance between the back of the wall and the pocket door for a backing plate etc. Interference can cause scratches to the door. I used the self-adhesive floor protectors (the kind you use under furniture, etc.). They are available in many shapes and sizs. I chose the strips about 4" long and 1/2" wide. I ran several of them horizontally across the leading edge of the reinforcement plate to create a "padded ramp" for the door to slide on.

Also, you must remove the door and loosen the BR wall screws in order to allow room for your arms and hands to get in between the walls. If you have "Popeye" arms, you may have to get a small assistant to help.

I decided not to mount the flat screen, instead I found that my 26" sony would sit on the cabinet top attached to the credenza. My wife and I could both see the tv fine sitting in our recliners. While travelling i just put it on the bed, works fine for us

Happy Thanksgiving,


Reganzo

Thanks for all the suggestions, we followed what many did in terms of location and devised a plan for the back side of the mount to dual purpose as a magazine rack. Turned out decent and for the 15" TV seems to hold up and support quite well. Wifey came up with the idea and is comprised of some 2x2's. Rack only holds 4 or 5 mags but turned out decent!

Total cost $30 including the mount which we found on overstock.com.

Do you still find it okay to remove the TV when you travel, or has it become a pain? We have the lovely '70's 1/4 thin laminate wall dividers, and are unsure as to how well traveling with the TV mounted "ON" the mount will be (even strapped in).

The mount we purchased makes it easy to take the tv down for transport. We too have the 1/4 inch walls. We added a 2 x 2 behind for more support. I don't want test our luck and leave it up while on the road.

Richard, one can only dream about finally getting to the cyclo stage. Will this thing ever be finished?

Do you happen to have a link to the one that you purchased? It is some sort of quick-release mechanism that removes it?

Here is the link. It's a nob you unscrew closest to the mount attaching to the tv.

We have this one:
LCD Wall Mount with Articulating Double Arm System | Overstock.com
It has 4 screws that hold the TV to the mount and it takes two minutes to get it attached.

Shawn I had no trouble with the wall supporting the arm and a 22" Vizio through the panel over the fridge in my 72. Drilled three holes through it to mount. I usually took the TV off the mount during travel. Could also rotate the arm into the back room to watch TV in the twin beds.

Thanks...I think that's what we're going to do -- I just didn't think that wall would be able to support it while traveling (although I know plenty of people who do with newer models). At the same time, I don't want it to be a pain having to always unscrew and re-screw something (and risk messing up threads, etc).

I think the three screws balance out the weight of the mount and my wall was secured by the overhead bin and the counter/fridge frame. I usually took the TV off the arm during travel as a precaution but if you create a strap (I used a bungy cable to keep the Vizio secure against the wall) it should be fine.
