Down and Out Mount - Fireplace Mounting

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
The best solution to mounting a TV above the fireplace is the Down and Out Mount. I recently received mine after ordering only a few days earlier from http://www.DynamicMounting.com. I recently purchased a house with the only logical spot for the TV above the gas fireplace and mantel, but this was far too high for comfortable viewing from the couch (I have sat in front of many televisions that were mounted too high and experienced the discomfort). I scoured the internet for the solution and found the Down and Out Mount which allows the TV to be mounted high above the mantel for storage or viewing from afar and then pulled down in front of the mantel and fireplace for watching from the couch.

The mount installed easily and the counterbalance shock adjusted for the weight of my television. The counterbalance makes moving the TV a snap with only minimal effort. I have attached pics of the TV in the Up and Down positions. At $499 the Down and Out Mount is a little more expensive than traditional wall mounts, but its benefits far outweigh the cost in my opinion. One of my friends said it best. I was explaining the mount to him, how great it was, etc and ended the description with the cost. He says, “Well it’s cheaper than the $700 I paid to have my mantel lowered to accomplish the same thing.

The mount also comes in a Down and Out with side to side swivel option if you are needing that functionality. Long story short, if you want to mount above a fireplace you should be looking a this product.
