When the mount arrives it will come in a plain cardboard box, when you crack it open you’ll discover a neatly packaged slate grey powder coated "PDM" mount, which once deciphered stands for …… Plasma Display Mount… (Cryptic eh?)
The mount comes with just about everything you should need to install it on a wall with wooden studs. Or if you require to mount this on a brick or concrete wall you can use the included lag shields. It comes with M4, M5, M6 and M8 machine screws to attach the arms to the back of your Plasma or LCD Television. It also includes 6 Lags and 6 Lag shields to attach the plate to the wall, along with some plastic spacers and a wide range of flat and lock washers and a small 2-way level.
Once you take everything out of its packaging you will notice how sleek this mount is. You will also notice how robust the arms are that mount to your display. They measure 2 ¼" wide. Also the total thickness of the mount is 1 ¾” thick. The steel for the arms is 10 gauge as-well. This is probably one of the lowest profile Heavy-Duty mounts I have set had my hands on.
On the wall plate you will notice two decent size cut outs to go over a horizontally placed electrical outlet or for your components wires to pass through if need be. The holes measure 11 inches wide by 3 inches tall. In between the rectangular holes is an arrow pointing up, you will need to keep it this way to properly affix it to your surface. Also all the holes cut out are cut with a laser, so there are no burs or sharp edges.
The arms that mount to you display will slide as far as 31 ½ inches or 801mms apart. The maximum vertical separation for the holes on the arms is 19 inches or 483mms apart. The
mount also has tabs that will prevent your TV from sliding off the bracket which is a good thing.
Also a very rare feature is instead of this mount coming with one long locking bar to prevent someone from lifting your TV off the wall. It comes with 2 short bars, one for each arm. This is a big thing for a couple reasons. If you have ever tried to line up a 36" long piece of steel to slide through two small slots in can be a challenge. But most importantly if you install the Monitor in a recess it would be impossible to slide that long locking bar in. Now with the short ones you can just reach behind or under the TV and slide them in to easily secure your display. In the hardware bag 2 "suit case" locks are also included with the TV, if you actually want to secure the TV I would highly recommend getting a real lock to secure your flat panel display.
