I purchased the vmt14 mount from sanus and have a LG 47LW5700 tv after somewhat of a struggle with getting it mounted, I found out I have no room for anything at the back. I have a electrical outlet behind the TV and am not able to plug it in because the plug is to thick. I'm looking for some sort of adapter or small extension cord that is flat or 90 degrees that will just change the angle of the plug. The tv power cord cannot be removed because it's fixed into the TV.

Something like this? I've seen lots of these flat plugs in stores lately. I'm sure you could probably find one online that is shorter, since you probably only need a few inches.

If you installed it your self you know how it works, Home Depot has recessed boxes that do the job.

If I have to use extension cords, I always use ones like those. You can get them in white as well. Just gives it a more finished look and if the outlet is behind something ( a desk, bookcase, entertainment center, etc) you can easily use the outlet and only have to move the furniture once.

Yes that's the way to go. Same thing at Home depot, what ever is close to you.
