About the Kanto FM100
Bring your TV to eye level
Bring your TV to eye level
A TV mounted above a fireplace can look great. But continually looking up to watch that TV can get uncomfortable — fast. And you might not be viewing it at an angle that lets you enjoy the best picture quality. The Kanto FM100 lets you simply pull down your fireplace-mounted TV to watch it at eye level. And when you're done, push it back in place and out of the way.
Swivel and tilt
The gas-shock arm lets you easily position your TV. As you lower your TV, extends it away from the wall, keeping it clear of any heat source in the fireplace.
The FM100 can be tilted down as much as 5° to eliminate glare. And once the mount's extended, you can swivel your TV up to 30° in either direction.
Great for home or office
The mount includes a built-in bracket for a sound bar. Paintable covers hide the wall assembly, making for a more finished appearance when your TV's pulled down.
The FM100 is also great for schools and businesses. Keep your display monitor up and out of the way when not used for presentations or lectures.
