Re: TV installation

We used a "VideoSecu LCD Monitor TV Flat Panel Wall Mount VESA 75/100 - Ultra Thin Mount Bracket" - basically two flat plates with edges that curve around each other - so the TV would rest as close as possible to the wall, given that it's above a settee where someone usually sits to eat at the table. Non-articulating, but very very solid.

So close to the wall that I had to look for right-angle HDMI, ,RCA, and F-type connectors, and use a flex shaft screwdriver to fasten the locking screws. But the TV is definitely out of the way, and solid. Lag screws into the bulkhead.

Apparently the fellow who stole the first TV didn't need a flex shaft to remove the retaining screws, but he did give up on removing the wall side of the bracket. But he was kind enough to drop a credit card receipt with his name on it in the cockpit, and he and his "associates" have since reimbursed the TV and damage. Still wondering how he got it off with a straight screwdriver though.
