Overview: This Premier Mounts AM250 universal mounting bracket is designed
to mount most flat-panel TVs from 37" to 50", and support up to 125 pounds. The mount's
scissor-style Universal Swingout Arm allows you to easily
pull the TV up to 16" away from the wall, and push it back to approximately
from the wall when collapsed. Once extended, you can pivot the TV up to 45° left or
right, and can tilt forward up to 10° for best
Construction: This heavy-duty wall-mount
bracket is made from rigid steel tubing. The powder-coated finish matches the
look and feel of many of today's LCD and plasma TVs.
Important Mounting Recommendations: The wall
structure must be capable of supporting a great deal of weight. The
mounting bracket weighs nearly 40 pounds, and the maximum load capacity
of the mount is 125 pounds. If the wall structure is not capable of
supporting the weight, it must be reinforced. At least
two qualified persons should perform the installation procedure.
Mount Installation: The mount can be installed on wood wall
studs with a 16", 18", or 24" center using the supplied 3" lag bolts.
It can also be installed on a solid flat concrete wall (appropriate hardware is
required, sold separately). The
maximum mounting slot spacing is 27" wide and 12-1/2" high.
TV Installation: The TV is attached to the AM250's vertical
mounting brackets which hang onto the horizontal universal bracket bars. The brackets
can accommodate a TV with a horizontal mounting screw spacing of 7-5/8" (194mm)
to 29-3/16" (741mm), and a vertical mounting screw spacing of 1" (25mm) to
20-1/4" (514mm). The mounting bracket includes M4, M5, M6, and M8 hardware in
varying lengths to accommodate most flat panel mounting requirements.
VESA Mounting Patterns: Given the mounting bracket's range
of motion, it can accommodate TVs with the following VESA mounting patterns:
- 200 x 100
- 200 x 200
- 300 x 200
- 400 x 200
- 400 x 300
