Question Monoprice Wall Mount Advice (8588 Problems)

I bought the Monoprice 8588 wall mount for my Panasonic tc-p60st60 (60" and 73 lbs). As you can see it's tilting way forward:




After my professional calibrator finished up with my TV he helped me tilt the TV up so it's parallel to the wall. We loosened the knobs, tilted the TV up, and tightened the knobs. I've also done this with a friend. After each adjustment it eventually just tilts back down again over a few days.

My question is, is there another Monoprice mount I should buy that doesn't have this problem? Or is there something else I can try to fix my current mount?

If you don't need it to tilt, buy one the does not tilt.. Or, find 2 flat spots on the back and add some wood block the proper thickness to prevent the tilt. Just use some double faced mounting tape to attache them to the back of the TV. May be the fastest fix..

Are you sure the knobs are tight? I have a hard time stuffing my hands behind these mounts to tighten the knobs.

I would think you would need to tilt yours down so you are looking at the image on axis

I would suggest going to ACE Hardware and getting some thin rubber washers to place in the mount path. That will add friction you need.
Two answers for the knob. First one: Find a socket that fits snugly over the knob and use an extension and ratchet to tighten it firmly. Better suggestion: Replace the knob with a nut with a locking insert. Again tighten with a ratchet and extension. This isn't something you need to change often. Mostly when you are fiddling with cables.

Thanks jayn_j - I'll give that a try.

Did you ever fix your problem? I'm looking at the same mount. Also, where did you mount your wire hiding kit? I notice that the bracket doesn't have a large square opening like some do.
