Hi, I upgraded to a 120" fixed frame screen from a 100" screen. I bought the screen used on craigslist and it didn't come with the brackets to mount it to the wall. The ones I had for the 100" screen work fine for 120" screen so I am re-using them. I want to sell my 100" screen and would like to buy brackets to give with it when I sell it.

I am looking for the wall mount flat bracket with the little lip at the top that sticks out that the fixed screen frame hooks/attaches to. I have tried google searches and searching posts here and couldn't find the right name for that bracket or anyplace selling that particular peice of hardware.

If someone gave me the name of the bracket or a link to buy one that would be great. I'll call the manufacturer and see I can order them directly from them if necessary but would prefer something local if possible.

Thanks!

That was my first thought as well... some pictures would help people identify it for you I'm sure. Or some more info on the screen manufacturer/model...

What kind of material is your frame?

The Sawtooth & Ring hanger should work as long as they support(rated) the weight.

It's aluminum covered in black velvet like material. The 100" is a Favi brand and the 120" is Elite. They both are fixed frame. The lip part of the bracket goes into a groove on the frame. I guess I figured this was a common bracket since my first screen about 10 yrs ago had the same type of hardware. (I went 4-5 years without a projector when we moved)
