The installation of the mounting hardware was much easier than I expected. We used concrete sleeve anchors but you could also use Tapcom anchors.This was quite a process but by taking it one step at a time I got the TV where I wanted it...finally! Visit my blog post to see the step by step process.
  • By hanging the TV over the fireplace I was able to combine 2 focal points into one.
  • I was also able to move my furniture to a more open arrangement.
  • I had some help. The cable company was wonderful and my handy-man just did what I told him to!

    Looks very nice job OSP. My hubby wants our TV over the fireplace, but with my neck injury I fear it will be uncomfortable. Have you noticed that you feel like you are looking up too much while viewing your TV?

    No not at all. I lowered my mantel as far as I could so we could mount the TV as low as possible. We definitely are not looking up at all. I wish we would have done this years ago!

    Thank you. We have a wood burning fireplace so the mantel can't be lowered too low. We've yet to build our surround and built ins on either side, but I know where the mantel height will be and it seems quite high to me. I guess I can only hope that it

    A wood burning stove is very hot heat.Heat rises and I would be concerned it would effect the TV.

    That's another concern of mine. We haven't done a heat test yet. It's a new home with a very efficient (triple wall) wood burning fireplace kit so it could very well be okay. We're waiting for the first cold night to burn a fire.
