I bought two 22" and one 26" flat panel TV's for my bar. My ceiling is only eight foot, so I plan on hanging them.


I am going to use two, 1/8" thick flat bars mounted to the back of the flat panel with a hole drilled in the top of the bar to hang on a "j-hook" in the ceiling.


The hooks will be far enoigh from the wall to allow the TV's to tilt forward at the top. The bottom of the TV will lean against the wall.


I have seen mounts that bolt to the back of the TV's then mount on the ceiling, but since I do not need to adjust the angle of the screen once in place, I don't see any need to go to the expense of buying commercial mounts


Has anyone done this or forsee see any problem doing it this way?

You can just buy a mount and not have to worry about designing one. Its just as cheap at monoprice. Mounts for that size tv sell for less than $20. They sell one that has a slight tilt for a couple of dollars more. Unless you just cant mount to wall with commercial mount I would use them. I also think it would be a much more professional looking installation.
