Hey folks.

I'm not sure why this is so hard to find, but maybe I'm not using the best wording. Basically, at Frys I saw the Screedeck attached to a TV to hold a center channel or whatever you would like. I was trying to figure an easy way to mount my sound bar to my tv, I immediately thought of what the Screen Deck uses (see below).



Now, I did a quick Google search for aluminum brackets, rails etc, and can't find something as simple as those small black rails. I honestly thought about my old Erector sets as a kid, even those would probably do. Anyone have any ideas?

I know some of you have used the Rubbermaid, but I don't want white and I sadly don't have a drill. This can't be hard to mount sound bars on top of a TV...

They mount to the Vesa screw holes on the back of the tv.

HI Greg,

Sorry, I should have been more clear. I know where and how they mount, what I'm looking for is where I could get such rails or strips of aluminum that have holes punched like that. That way I can simply bolt the sound bar to the rail, and the rail to the versa holes.

They are punched out from huge sheets of aluminum that comes on rolls by large presses. Most of those brackets are some type of steel alloy, or aluminum alloy, depending on the weight they hold. You can get flat stock from any tube or flat stock metal supplier. One you get what size you want, then drill the holes with a drill press.

It's supposed to hold 5lbs max, irrespective of which ScreenDeck version you buy. Having said that, has anyone tried to place a center channel on it? Mine weighs about 15lbs. It somehow seems more sturdy than the Center Stage Brackets. My center is supposedly 11 lbs (Jamo S60), and I'm trying to look for solutions to mount it on my 65" GT30.
