I'm looking for a thin wall mount WITH lift for a 42 to 50 inch plasma panel.

I don't know if they exist or not.

My problem, is that I don't have a wall high enough behind where I want to mount the panel (it's a 4' knee wall with open space above it).

So, I think mounting directly to the low wall and then lifting about a foot or foot and a half would be ideal.


I've considered mounting inside the knee wall, but if I pop out the top, it will be too high. The other alternative, is custom furniture that raises the panel up; seems expensive and "big".


If anyone knows of anyone that builds such a beast, or even that can custom modify such a mount I would be interested.

I'm having deja vu as I basically asked for the same thing and I believe we kinda got nowhere. I hope something better comes along this time.

A. There is not a ready made solution for this other than the expensive 'Plasma Lifts' by Inca, Auton and several other companies.


B. There exists various possible solutions that could be adapted.


These could include generic 'Panel Lifts' (not plasmas).


Two major types:


1) One that works much like a automated window blind, with a suspended cable system,.


2) And one that lifts a 'panel' with straps and a motor driven coil.


The latter uses a Motorized tube that rests half way thru the range of vertical motion, but also requires parallel tracks for the panel to slide up and down without tipping.



There are also extension columns (Lifting Columns - which include table legs) that are used in furniture to make adjustable height work surfaces, or tables heights.


The following Panel lift is rated at 180lbs. (Note the panel in front of the TV)

Next are 'Lifting Columns' used as a single column, or four table legs.

Still looking/thinking of your articluated and lift desired function, Mark, tricky.

That was one of the "other companies" I mentioned....I have yet to see a price on 'em, although. They appear to be a low profile cable and pulley drive system as compared to the rack & pinion of the Inca & Auton.
