When choosing a fixed mount, keep the location of your TV’s inputs in mind, as you may need to use the provided spacers to ensure your cables fit properly.

Tilting Mounts

A tilting mount, like our PT300, is ideal if you need to sit lower than your TV can be mounted such as above a fireplace or media center. While they also provide a reasonably low-profile solution, tilting mounts let you adjust the angle of your TV to improve line-of-sight and reduce glare.

Full Motion Mounts

If you want complete control over the position of your TV, a full motion mount is the way to go.

Full motion mounts feature an articulating arm allowing you to extend, swivel and tilt your TV almost anywhere you want. This provides you with the best seat in the house, regardless of where you’re located. If you’re looking for a certain aesthetic, some full motion mounts come in a white finish, like the PDX680.
