Fits TVs up to VESA 400 (NOT VESA 600)
This mount fits TVs up to VESA 400. Most TVs 65” and smaller use VESA 400 or smaller. But some TVs 65” and smaller use VESA 600. This mount will Not fit VESA 600 even if the TV is 65” or less. If your TV has a VESA 600 hole pattern, we suggest the APDAM2B.
Fits 16” Studs (NOT 20” or 24”)
The wall plate for this mount is 17” and will fit 16” wall studs. Once mounted on two 16” wall studs, the TV will be centered between the two studs. No side to side adjustment is possible. If your walls have 20” or 24” studs, this mount will not fit. For 24” studs, we suggest the APDAM2B.
Many TVs require no screws because they use the same screws from the TV stand. This mount ships with one set each of 4mm, 5mm, 6mm and 8mm TV screws. It also includes spaces to adjust for screw length. These screws support most TVs but Not All TVs. If your TV requires different screws, Cheetah Mounts stocks hundreds of TV screw sets at their US warehouse which they will ship for free.
If you mount the wall plate level on the wall, the TV plate may still not be level. To correct for this, there are four screws where the arms attach to the TV plate. If you loosen these screws you can rotate the TV plate to level it. The amount of rotation adjustment required can vary as the arms are extended.
14" Extension, Low 2.7" Profile, 130° Swivel, ±20° Tilt, ±3° Rotation Adjustment
The articulating arm extends up to 14" from the wall yet collapses to 2.7". The mount allows for up to 130° swivel, ±20° tilt and ±3° of rotational adjustment. The amount of swivel is limited on larger TVs as the edge of the TV hits the wall.
10' Twisted Veins HDMI Cable and 6" Magnetic Bubble Level
The mount includes a 10’ Twisted Veins High Speed with Ethernet HDMI cable featuring 4K 60HZ HDR signal support and a protective braided jacket.

I also installed the Datacomm 50-3323-WH-KIT behind the TV for cable management so that I could run the include 10' HDMI cable and power inside the wall versus having the cables hang down from the TV. You can't beat this mount for the price; it's sturdy and the viewing angle is adjustable. Because it's in my bedroom, I do have it an angle, which puts the top of the TV about 4.25 inches from the wall. Even at this angle, you can't see any of the cables as you enter the room (the include velcro cable management ties work perfectly.
UPDATE (6/29/2018): I just purchased my 3RD CHEETAH MOUNT to install a Samsung QN75Q7 Flat 75" QLED that my sister just bought for her new home. Although the pre-assembled VESA 400x400 configuration may benefit owners of smaller TVs, it did take a few extra minutes to unassemble and reassemble the mount to use on her 75" TV. Although the Samsung is a 400x400 VESA configuration, due to the weight of the TV (90lbs), I wanted to make sure the mount was attached to the wood studs which required the expanded pieces. WARNING FOR ANY OTHER SAMSUNG TV OWNERS (65" or larger): The four (4) M8 screws provided by Cheetah are not long enough to use on the VESA hanging rails. I had to go to the local hardware store and pick up longer M8 bolts (about 20mm longer) and about $0.37 each. Other than that hiccup, the mount works great for her new Samsung TV.
Like most Amazon shoppers, I count on honest, unbiased reviews. I hope you have found this review helpful in making your purchase decision.
Couple suggestions I wanted to throw out there due to some of the other reviews:
- Never, I repeat NEVER mount anything over 30 lbs using wall anchors. Not sure why they include them, but just say no! I always buy a 1"x8" board that I mount to the wall into 2-3 studs. Then mount the TV mount to the board. This allows you to center the TV wherever you want regardless of where the studs are AND gives the mount a nice solid area to be secured to.
- I tend to go overkill on the weight estimates. If the TV weighs 40 lbs, I aim for a mount that can handle double (one because knock-off mounts can't be trusted, and 2 it's kind of an insurance policy).
- Ignore the size of your TV. All the matters is the WEIGHT and the TV MOUNTING POINTS. My tv is setup for 15.75 inch x 15.75 inch (400mm x 400mm) mounting and only weighs 50lbs, so this mount was perfect.
- Try to mount the arms to the center of your TV. Not all mounting holes are centered for weight balance. This is most likely the problem people are having with the it tilting too much. This means there's too much weight at the top.
Overall, I am very happy with this wall mount and I will buy another one when I get a TV for my office. I can easily recommend this TV mount. Based on other reviews, I was a little concerned and almost didn't order this wall mount. Some of these complaints need to be qualified and some of the complaints have been fixed by Cheetah.
OTHER PEOPLE's COMPLAINTS:
I had read previous reviews and the three points that have been raised by other reviewers were:
1. Poor or confusing instructions
2. Cheap or flimsy construction
3. Inability to hide the cables that pull to release the display
4. Once mounted, you can move the bottom of the TV on the mount (there is a little play)
5. You have to assemble parts to extend the mount to anything larger then 16" studs
6. Don't use the included level. It isn't accurate.
For the low price and taking the complaints with some healthy skepticism, I went ahead and ordered this mount instead of just ordering a $100 mount. I was pleasantly surprised. It appears that the manufacturer has been paying attention to the feedback and has addressed several of the complaints and even included documentation pointing out the changes to the mount. I'm going to address each of the points listed above with my observations.
COMPLAINT: 1. Poor or confusing instructions
MY EXPERIENCE: If you have never put together a piece of furniture from ikea, yes, you may be confused by these instructions. If however, you have done any home repairs beyond replacing a light bulb, you will be able to figure this out without any confusion. For me, this was simple and easy. Maybe this is one of the things Cheetah fixed.
COMPLAINT: 2. Cheap or flimsy construction
MY EXPERIENCE: The metal construction of this mount is actually stronger then I expected. It appears as thought they have changed the design to use stronger parts. Yes, the hooks that you attach to the VESA mount on the TV and use to hang the TV on the bracket are not as robust as the metal on the wall bracket, but they are more then enough for the task at hand. I didn't experience them as being flimsy or at any risk of bending. The documentation did point out that they had included new stronger lag bolts, but still warned not to over tighten them.
COMPLAINT: 3. Inability to hide the cables that pull to release the display
MY EXPERIENCE: Cheetah now includes two magnets to stick onto the handles of the pull tabs so you can easily hide the pull tabs back up under the TV.
COMPLAINT: 4. Once mounted, you can move the bottom of the TV on the mount (there is a little play)
MY EXPERIENCE: Yes, this is true. Once the TV is mounted to the wall, you can press against the TV and there is a little play on the bottom of the TV. This doesn't really bother me. Once the TV is mounted on the wall, I don't actually go touch the TV. I use the remote control, so if there is a little room for play on the bottom of the mount, this doesn't actually affect the function or performance of the mount. This is just me. I am sure that just knowing that there is play in the mount will bug some people to no end. If you already know that something like this will bug you, this isn't the mont for you.
COMPLAINT: 5. You have to assemble parts to extend the mount to anything larger then 16" studs
MY EXPERIENCE: The mount has a small main rail that you can mount all by itself to the wall. This is 16" wide. If the studs in your wall are perfectly spaced so that the center point of the TV would fall exactly between these two studs, then you are all set. If like 95% of the rest of us, you are going to experience something less then the perfect situation, this mount is adaptable. It comes with extra rail sections you can attach to lengthen the wall mount. This allowed me to extend my wall mount and be less precise with how centered the wall mount was on the wall. I made sure the main 16" portion was where I was going to hang my TV and I used the extra extension to reach out to the next set of wall studs to make sure the wall mount was securely braced against the wall. The holes for the lag bots to score into the studs were oval shaped so that I even had flexibility to drill the hols i the studs and have some ability to adjust.
COMPLAINT: 6. Don't use the included level. It isn't accurate.
MY EXPERIENCE: I already own a very good level, so I didn't even check the included level. That being said, on my first attempt to hang the TV on the wall, I discovered that while my TV was perfectly level, my house was not. I live in an older victorian and the built in wainscoting and crown moulding were sloping towards the back of the house. Actually, I suspect the whole house slopes. So having the TV perfectly level was actually a bad idea. I took the TV off the wall and adjusted the hanging brackets by loosening the screws into the VESA mount points and moving the brackets on the left down a little. In fact, when you are first mounting the brackets to the back of your TV, you put the screws through long oval slots rather then a round hole. This gives you the freedom to adjust the brakes up or down by about an inch. I recommend mounting the brackets in the middle of the oval hole so that you have room to adjust up or down if you need to make some fine adjustments.
MY ONLY COMPLAINTS:
If you need to adjust the tilt of the TV or the leveling of the TV, you will need to take the TV off the wall and make the adjustments. I know that there are other mounts out there that make this a slightly easier process. You only need to make this adjustment once and then you are done. For me, I didn't see that convenience worth paying 4X the price of this mount. I know that this cost/value equation is different for everyone. For me, this wall mount is great and I will happily get another one when the time comes to hang another TV.
Top international reviews
Es un buen producto, de hecho, no digo que es un simple buen producto calidad-precio, porque después de montarlo, me parece un auténtico chollazo, vivo al lado de un Leroy Merlín y de los que tienen en exposición, que valen más del triple o 4 veces mas, no lo dejan atrás en calidad ni en versatilidad, no es extraño por lo tanto que tenga tantas ventas ni tantos votos positivos.
Dicho esto, he grabado un pequeño video mientras lo iba sacando de la caja y para que se viera una vez montado como gira y como queda montado, vamos, un poco lo que me habría gustado ver antes de comprarlo, ya que hay tantos modelos disponibles en Amazon que estaba hecho un lio de verdad.
Una de las cosas que me decidió a favor de este soporte (aparte del precio y del envío prime) fue un detalle que no lograba ver en otros soportes, y es en el apartado de agujeros para poner los tornillos en la pared, podéis verlo en el video. Ese detalle da versatilidad y permite que, si no colocamos los tacos con exactitud milimétrica, podamos ajustar un poco el soporte sobre la pared.
El sistema de rotula, me ha parecido muy sencillo de colocar, he aflojado los 3 tornillos que trae, pero no hasta un punto que se quede suelto, sino que se quede fuerte pero aun se pueda girar la TV, la ajustamos y volvemos a apretar, se queda perfecto. Podéis ver en el video la facilidad en la que gira la TV sobre el soporte.
Un pero, que tambien he leído a muchos comentaristas de este y otros soportes, tiene que ver con los tacos y tornillos que incluye, a mi punto de entender, el tornillo, aunque de calidad, es corto, y el taco, debería ser mejor, de Nylon. Obviamente unos Tacos así valen un poco más, quizás un euro, pero vamos, yo no me he arriesgado y he puesto unos tacos de un poco mejor calidad y unos tornillos de 7 cm.
En fin. UN soporte sorprendentemente majo, y con un precio fantástico. Un autentico Chollazo, ahora faltará ver el resultado en unos meses... pero bueno, de haber algo raro ya lo contaría.
Ive listed a few that I feel you should be aware of If your reading reviews before buying:
1. Instructions are difficult to follow.
Instructions are very easy to follow you just have to use a bit of common sense on which options to follow as there are two!
2. Brackets are received in pieces and needs to be assembled which is difficult to do.
Again this is very easy to assemble, if you can follow the instructions :)
3. Bracket feels flimsy.
Brackets feels very very sturdy, you just need to tighten the screws all the way when assembling the bracket.
4. Rawlplugs supplied are cheap.
This I have to agree but i never ever use rawlplugs that have been supplied for products I buy, I use my own which I know will hold. For this bracket I used a medium duty, multipurpose rawlplug and screws. Didn't bother with the supplied screws.
5. Spirit level that came free is not accurate.
The instruction manual advises you to use your own bigger spirit level to fine tune the level. I used my own from the start.
6. The two locking pulley system dangles and could cause accidental release of the tv from the bracket and should somehow have a way to secure it behind the tv.
Within the bag of screws there are two magnets that you stick to the handles of the locking system which helps hide the pulley system behind the tv!
7. There is not enough space to put your hand behind the tv to connect the cables.
This bracket is "designed" to be as close to the wall as possible. I connected the cables to the back of the tv before placing it on the bracket.
All in all I'm very happy with this tv bracket and will definitely buy again if I need to in the future considering the price I paid for it and the free hdmi cable provided!
I bought this to hold my daughters new 50" Toshiba and it's perfect - took longer to drill the 3 holes in her reinforced concrete (ex council house fortress) walls than it did attaching / assembling the unit itself !
Can't recommend this enough, and I've not been paid for this review.....this really is THAT good so buy it, you won't be disappointed !!
Maybe the instructions aren't the easiest in the world, mainly because they make it all sound more difficult than it is to put the frame together and attach it to a wall. Assembling the frame is easy, attaching the arms to the TV is easy and then clipping the TV onto the frame is easier still. I was expecting to have to wiggle and manouevre a bit but was amazed to see that it clipped on straight away.
There are a few extras, like a spirit level, and decent-looking HDMI cable, a key ring with a light on it and a cleaning cloth. Presumably to keep the TV clean, but I will probably use it for my glasses. The only thing I don't like is that there are two strings hanging down with little handles on. These are for releasing the lock if you want to dismount the TV and I do worry that kids might pull them. It should be easy enough to just hook them over the frame or use blu-tack to hold them out of the way.
Given that this works perfectly well, I really can't see why people are spending upwards of 10 times the cost of this for other brackets. I paid for next day delivery and it was still cheaper than the cheapest bracket in Argos or Currys. If I ever decide to wall mount the downstairs TV I will absolutely get another of these.
It pretty much comes with everything you need, I had to buy some specific fixings for plaster board. (I used "grip it" fixings, which were fairly good) The bracket seems very good quality and overall does an excellent job. Once fitted, the T.V is easy to take off the bracket if needed.
My only slight criticism is this: the mounts that attach to the T.V itself, do not seem to sit perfectly level when screwed in at the top holes of each mount. The T.V did not sit level despite both mount holes being in exactly the same position on each mount. I checked the wall mount with a spirit level and this was perfectly level. I did the same with the back of the T.V and it was definitely off. Thankfully, due to the design of the bracket, it was fairly easy to just adjust the mounts on the T.V and offset them very slightly to get it level. Not a massive problem, but slightly annoying.
I recently received an email from SPN imports, the company who supplied me with the bracket.
They wrote to me regarding my feedback in having difficultly getting the TV mount level. They apologised, gave me a full refund and sent me a free gift of an articulating TV wall mount! They did all this despite me not having even contacting them to complain or anything. I think they had just seen my comments in my review. It was only a minor inconvenience anyway, I easily mounted the TV correctly, as stated in my review.
I'm absolutely astounded at this level of customer care and full praise must be given, especially considering that I bought the mount back in march and they had actually taken consideration to follow the matter up some months later. They seemed genuinely concerned. So, thank you very much SPN imports, you are truly excellent and I appreciate your care! (I've changed my rating of the product from 4 stars to 5, for the excellent customer care received)
❓cosa comprende la confezione?
Nella confezione ho trovato tutto il necessario per per il montaggio della staffa: tasselli da 12, viti, spessori per regolare meglio L’inclinazione della tv, una bolla,un simpatico gadget lampadina, e il cavo hdmi
✅I materiali del supporto sono molto robusti
✅ É possibile utilizzare la staffa nella sua dimensione originale o allungarla con i pezzi in dotazione
✅ Regolazione precisa dell inclinazione della tv
❌NON UTILIZZARE LA BOLLA IN DOTAZIONE: è poco precisa e vi farà perdere tempo e pazienza, o se vi accontentate vi troverete con la tv non perfettamente in piano.
❌Per una maggiore sicurezza sconsiglio di utilizzare i tasselli dati in dotazione: sono poco affidabili, soprattutto se anche voi(come me) avete la parete su cui volete installare la staffa costruita in tramezze o cartongesso. Consiglio vivamente dei tasselli della Fisher autorestringenti da 12 che vi assicurerà una tenut molto salda.
🌐nonostante questi due piccoli difetti lo consiglio a tutti quelli che consapevolmente vogliono spendere un prezzo ragionevole ma che comunque dovrà stare attento a rispettare i due punti qua sopra descritti.
⚠️AGGIORNAMENTO al 2/03/2017⚠️
Il venditore mi ha contattato, mostrandosi disponibile e aiutandomi per i problemi qua sopra presentati, proponendomi una soluzione degna di 5 stelle.
I put it up last night and I am very happy with the quality, it folds to around an inch thick (not including the TV mounted bracket) and the arm is nice and stiff so it stays where you position it. The angle is very good but will depend on your TV size. The kit came with lots of screws for different TV types.
The only negative things would be:
- The HDMI cable isn't great quality, it feels very rough and the stickers were peeling off of it.
- The mount was sticky in places, perhaps some grease got over it.
- It would be nice to have a couple of extra wall anchors and bolts to insure a strong fixing, but wouldn't be an issue for most people.
Otro detalle pecualiar es la pieza que sujeta la TV y el brazo, para regular la inclinación se recurre a tres tuercas que regulan la posición de una esfera que hace las veces de pivote. El sistema es lento de regular y las tuercas están duras, pero es cierto que garantiza la estabilidad, otros soportescon el tiempo se aflojan, este sin embargo jamás lo hará. Peeeero, hay un fallo... La TV no solo se puede regular hacia arriba y hacia abajo, también se puede regular en inclinación, para que quede horizontal. Por un lado esta posibilidad es muy práctica porque muchos soportes no pueden hacerlo y en caso de habrer puesto la sujeción a la pared algo torcido siempre podrás contrarrestarlo con esta regulación pero el tornillo que regula esta función esta por la parte anterior del soporte, es decir que hay que apretarlo ANTES de colocarlo sobre la TV porque luego no hay acceso, así que puede ser algo tedioso.
En resumen, por su precio no se puede pedir más. La clave está en el peso que le vayas a meter (hasta 16 kilos sin problema, con más no podrás plegarlo completamente) y en el tipo de pared al que vayas a atornillar (con ladrillo mejor usar tacos de más calidad que los suministrados y tornillos más largos para que la sujeción sea en al menos en dos capas del ladrillo).
I liked the the swivel adjustment (which a lot of mounts do not have). Some times all your measurements can be correct yet when the TV is on the wall it can look slightly out horizontally, the adjustment may only be a few degrees but can make all the difference.
The mount also has a tilt function which was a godsend for me. My TV is an LG E6 with passive 3D and for this to work properly you have to sit perpendicular to the TV so if sat on a couch and the tv is on a wall above your eye level the TV must point down towards you or else you will get blurred pictures when in 3D mode.
I was puzzled why a level and HDMI had been included both were of low quality and unnecessary.
All in a good purchase.
Some other reviewers complained that the mount sags with larger TV's, however I found the mount to be very stiff with no sag at all with the 38lb LG combined LCD TV/DVD player I mounted. The mount fixes easily between standard 16" o/c studs, with an inch or so of 'wiggle room'. The tilt is OK, and the swivel action is great. It can position the TV reasonably flat against the wall, but still extend out 10" or so, and offer a good range of left/right pan motion. The movement is very stiff, but I am sure it will loosen up after a while, however it may then sag, so I guess stiff is good.
Other than the toy spirit level, my only complaint would be that the washers & screws provided with the TV mounting hardware could do with some more thought. The VESA mount on my TV used the smallest thread screws provided. Unfortunately the screw heads are the same size as the hole in the washers, so they are next to useless. I has some smaller washers hanging around, so it was an easy fix, but its something that should have been caught in the design/manufacture process.
Overall, this is a decent quality, heavy duty mount with quite a good amount of movement. For the price, its a bargain.
I was contacted by the manufacturer of the mount. They had actually taken the time to read the review, and were concerned that I had issues with the screws, the spirit level and the stiffness of the mount. They spent some time discussing the issues, in particular the screws, and assured me that my concerns would be passed on to the quality control department. They followed up with an email that also contained instructions on how to reduce the stiffness in the mount (I was happy that it was stiff). To top it all off, they gave me a $15 refund.
Basically, for a manufacturer of what I consider to be a quality product to contact a customer and discuss and address their concerns is way over and above the service I would have expected. The $15 refund was the icing on the cake, especially considering I gave what I thought was already a pretty positive review. Did this influence my decision to update my review? Damn right it did. But the fact they followed up at all would have prompted me to update the review anyway.
So, to sum this up. This is a quality product that was let down by a minor issue with screw / washer sizes. However, the customer service provided by the company is outstanding, more than making up for the minor issue. I have therefore changed my rating from 4 stars to five.
If you are looking for a quality TV mount that is backed up by a quality company that really does care about its customers and products, then this mount is the one for you.
First of all, this mount is very low profile meaning that your TV is sitting VERY close to the wall and because of this it is impossible to use the rear HDMI inputs as there is not enough space between the back of the TV and the wall for the HDMI cable to plug in. The only way round this is to buy additional 90 degree cable adaptors to allow the cable input to point straight down.
Secondly, although this mount has a 15 degree downward "tilt" facility, the fact that the mount is again so close to the wall means that the tilt cannot be utilised on a larger screen TV as bottom of the TV hits the wall before the tilt can kick in.
So basically with my TV, an LG 55", this mount can only be used "flat" against the wall after purchasing 90 degree HDMI adapters.
However, this mount comes with a HUGE range of mounting options and can even be assembled "half-size" for smaller TV's so I would imagine it would be a very versatile mount for a smaller screen TV. Compared to similar mounts the sub-£20 price is also great value.
The mount comes with a FREE spirit level and also a very high quality HDMI cable.
After 4 months of this mount I am now swapping it for a cantilever style so that I can get the TV a bit further away from the wall and utilise the rear HDMI connections as well as enable a downward tilt.
The build quality is excellent and coupled with the range of features, when used with a smaller screen, this would be a good buy!
I chose this one based on the reviews and the great price, especially compared to high street prices
I could not be happier
Extremely well made
Comes with a magnetic spirit leve to aid installation which definitely helps
4 decent wall plugs and bolts
The adjustment available works really well as we wanted ours to kind of be corner mounted , which this does brilliantly.
We can push the TV flat to the wall if need be then swing it out and angle it in the corner.
But to be fair it stays out all the time
Superb bit of kit
Can highly recommend
