I've never hung a TV, but just bought a 46" Samsung off Craigslist for my billiard room. The guy I bought the TV included the mount he used, but I'm not so sure this mount is meant to work with this particular TV. The brackets on the back of the television don't fasten snugly against the back of the TV, allowing the bracket room to move. By that, I mean the screws are too long, even after using spacers. Is this normal or should I be able to tighten the screws enough so that the bracket doesn't have any room to move?

Yes, the bracket should be secure and not wiggle. You can just pick up 4 bolts from your local hardware store. Just take one of the bolts with you to ensure the right size and pick up a shorter length. It wouldn't cost you more that a couple of dollars if even that much.

What he said. I had to do this after I bought my new TV. I went to the most expensive hardware store in town (also closest) and I got out of there for well under $5. cool.gif
