Swivel Mount TV Installation From National Smart Home

A swivel mount or full motion swing arm mount will not keep your TV close to the wall but it will enable you to change the viewing angle any time. This is helpful when rooms are adjacent to each other and a swivel mount TV installation can accommodate multiple seating areas. Swivel mounts are also useful in corners or concealing a TV inside a cabinet area.

Swivel Mount TV Installation Tips & Ideas

  1. Electrical Outlet:  You will probably not need a recessed outlet when using a swivel mount but you will still need an outlet located directly behind the TV. Swivel mounts usually have enough clearance to allow for the length of the TV power plug without pushing the TV away from the wall. An expert will assure the outlet is in the correct location to avoid this.

  2. Wire Concealment:  Nobody wants to see wires, especially a power cord running down the wall to a power outlet. There are wire-molds and raceways to hide wires that extrude off the wall but dealers on this site will make sure all wires are concealed behind the sheet rock. The other issue will be making sure the wires run correctly and are secured to the swivel mount so they do not interfere with the movement of the mount that may cause a shock hazard over time.

  3. Smart TV Connections: Having a smart TV means it will need a network connection. This is possible through WiFi but will then cause bandwidth issues slowing down the entire network. Smart Televisions should be hardwired for Netflix, Hulu and all other streaming video services. 

  4. Swivel Mount TV Height:  A good swivel mount will also provide almost 45 degrees of tilt so you do not strain your neck. They also help eliminate light and sun glare from overhead fixtures or high windows. Be sure your swivel mount has a tilt feature. 

  5. Swivel Mount TV Connection Access:  When you use a swivel mount TV bracket you will have optimal access to HDMI ports and other connections. This makes it easier when hooking up game consoles and other components that were not permanently connected. Still use care when connecting new wires because they can still get caught in the tilting mechanism and create a shock hazard.
