$40 (or more) is alot for 2 simple brackets. Does anyone make a universal bracket? I see alot of 6" brackets but hardly any 12". My screen is an Elite 135" manual. I might just make my own when the screen arrives. Anyone done anything like that?

You could probably use shelf brackets. Check out the shelving department at HD or Lowe's.

They look like this - http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/p...88&lid=1022050
I imagine they have the hooks you can thread a nut onto at HD or Lowes also.
I think I'll wait until the screen gets here so I can see exactly what I need.
