PostSubject: TV mount   November 19th 2013, 12:45 pm

I have a tv that the wife wants out from in front of the fireplace abd nounted above the mantle. I bought a mount but the problem arises when I go to mount it. The fireplace is brick and the mortar between the bricks only lines up for the holes on the top or the bottom of the mount, not both. I am supposed to put 3 screws in the top and 3 in the bottom. Should I screw through the mount to make my own holes?

How about an articulating tv mount so you mount above the brick and swing the tv down when needed?

There's a few online articles saying to never mount a tv above the fireplace. They say related to smoke, heat, viewing angle, and appearance. I guess the first two only matter if you ever use the fireplace.

Can't you bolt the mount right into the brick?

As Diseasel mentioned, I probably wouldn't mount it above the fireplace though personally.

Talked to a guy that installs fireplaces. Says heat won't be an issue because its so far up that the heat wont go through the brick much. And if I do mount it then to be sure not to go through the brick. You can patch mortar easily but cracking the brick isnt good.

Mount a 2x4 frame to the mortar, then attach your mount to the 2x4 frame. It's all behind the TV and won't be seen.

I would screw through the frame and make the holes where you need them to be.

I don't care what the fireplace guy says I wouldn't mount it about the fireplace the heat and smoke rises. When I worked for a high end home theater company somebody did they spent a lot of money on TVs.
