I have the following mount on the drywall

APDAM2B
http://www.amazon.com/Cheetah-Articulating-Bracket-Displays-Ethernet/dp/B000WL6YY8/ref=cm_cr_pr_pb_t

The 65 inch plasma TV barely fits on the mount rails. I am afraid it is going to slip off.

There are bottom screws but not sure how adequate to prevent slide off.

Anybody have any suggestions to arrest any sliding.

May I suggest temporarily removing the TV from bracket attached to the wall and performing the following small modification to your TV mount.. All you need is a drill, drill bit and a two 1" long #6 machine screws, 6 or more small washers and 2 matching nuts. Basically you create a stop at the end of the mounting rail, or up against the inside part of the tilting bracket attached to the TV.

The side flanges on the mounting rectangle don't prevent the vertical brackets from sliding off the rails? From the photo on Amazon I don't see how it could slide off.
