What good are those ultra-thin TVs for your wall if they still stick out several inches because of a bulky wall mount? Thin is in, and it’s not just with flat panels.
Wall mounts are on the slim diet these days, too, and Chief Manufacturing has unveiled its Thinstall Series LTTU Universal Tilt Wall Mount that it’s billing as the “World’s Thinnest” flat-panel tilt mount—it collapses to a mere three-quarters of an inch deep.
Despite the low, low profile of the mount, it can support up to 100 pounds, and gives you fingertip tilt for your TV of up to 12 degrees. Perfect if you’re lounging on the floor with a PS3 or Xbox 360 controller.
The Thinstall Universal Tilt Wall Mount includes a one-piece bracket and two tilting interfaces, each of which has a sliding flag. There’s also a cable stand and bottom pullout for cable access.
If you want an even cleaner installation, Chief also has an In-Wall Box Accessory) that gives you a recessed space for routing cables and attaching surge protectors. And if you don’t want a wall mount that tilts, Chief also has a fixed mount in its Thinstall series that’s even thinner—at only 0.4 inches deep.
