Where to mount a bracket to a flat TV screen

We are wintering in our "sticky" in Dickinson, ND. Just recently bought a TV but need to mount it it to the wall or under a cabinet to avoid TV falling. My husband was wondering where on the back of an Emerson do you place the bracket. He has the rest figured out.


P.S. The Scamp is safe at home in Iowa.

I had purchased a 19" lcd that must weigh in at all of three pounds+. I just hung two little hooks from the rear upper cabinet over the sink and used some picture hanging wire to hang the tv on the hooks. I put the tv away for travelling and aside from the two little hooks you would never know a tv could be hung there. The hooks can also double as a cloth hanger when the tv is away.

There should be 4 threaded holes on the back of the TV. The Standard spacing is something called a Vesa pattern in a 75 or 100 confiquration. All newer TV's I've looked at have had this Vesa mounting system. I'm using this under cabinet TV mount and you can see the two different sets of holes in the mounting bracket.

You are correct about the four holes in the rear of the lcd tv.. I just purchased two screws from home depot to go in the upper two holes and tied the picture mounting wire (rated 25lbs) to them. I think my mod cost $5 tops. The tv ran $120 from best buy. It gets the tv right up against the back wall. I also tiled the back splash and didnt want to drill into it after.

Not all tbs have the mounting holes although most do.
For some reason Emerson are one of the oddballs sometimes?

If there are no mounting holes with threaded inserts for a bolt the tv is also likely a little older and heavier than the newer ones which weigh almost nothing.

You could make a frame that holds the tv from the edges but it may be easier to buy a different tv really and they start at about 100 bucks now.

Hi Cindy - noticed you mentioned IOWA. We are in SC but transplants from corn country, Storm Lake. Are you anywhere close?

We have an Emerson as well, there is part of the back that bumps out and there should be four holes on the outside of that bump out. I have a mount ordered but haven't found out if it will work yet or not. Going to hang it in the rear left corner where Ed had his. Hopefully the holes will line up. Ed gave me a link to the one he had in there but it was discontinured so had to order something different. Good luck fellow iowan.
