The Mighty Mount uses a simple miter connection to attach the TV to the wall bracket. This method of interlocking parts is already used in many other applications that require secure, strong connections. Its unique design with simple instructions makes it easy and safe to install. You can slide the TV to the desired location without having the weight of the TV on your arms and shoulders. In addition, the efficiency of this design allows the TV to be placed only 1 1/4" away from the wall. Using American precision engineering, manufacturing, and materials the Mighty Mount is machined from strong and light-weight extruded high-strength aluminum which is then anodized. In addition to its simplicity of installation, the unique miter design also allows for the mounting of a wide range of television sizes including the new, very large TVs.
