Re-Using My Mount for Larger Panel?

My Monoprice wall mount holds my 70" Vizio which is about 70 lbs. The mount say it will hold up to 200 lbs, 43" to 63". So I stretched the spec a bit to go to 70"s. I'm going to buy a Sony 85" X850G, which is about 104 lbs. Anyone here have experience with stretching the spec on size this much? Are there issues I'm not thinking of as 104 lbs is a long way from 200 lbs. The weight limit seems like the most important issue.

I would agree that size is irrelevant...the mount doesn't know how big the TV is.
The weight is what matters and it sounds like you are well under in this case.


I could see you having to possibly move the position of the mount to accommodate a larger panel but otherwise I'd say don't worry about it.

Spoiler!

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I will have to move the mount up. Strange about the size vs the weight. I wonder why they publish a size limitation.

Maybe something to do with the additional leverage that you can get with a larger size. An articulating mount might be particularly sensitive to the leverage that a larger panel can present.

Current system:
Sony 75X900e/Sony HT-NT5 sound bar with SR-5 rear speakers
Sony X800 4K blu-ray player/Dish Hopper3
Roku 4 Premier/'Sony PS-4

By leverage do you mean the additional weight pressure that a larger dimension might place on the mount arm when leaning forward? I would bet that there is an engineering formula that could quantify that.

43 to 63 compliant vesa mount for an 85 sounds risky. Leverage is definitely a factor. Does the mount even fit?

Possible thicker gauge metal used in the larger mounts may be something overlooked readily. Just thinking off the top of my head(I'm bald anyway). Tread lightly.

Nice TV by the way, go big or go home, I like the way you think.

Cheers

I gues I should contact Monoprice and see if they have any input.
