Does the job, easy to install
This works as advertised and is easy to install. Find your studs, mount the rear bracket, put the brackets on the TV, lift/hang the TF on the rear bracket and you're all set. While I am very happy with this product and would buy it again for another TV if I had one, there were a few things to note: Product says up to 12" horizontal adjustment. This is 12" total. Depending on the size of your TV, and where the wall bracket is placed, you might only have 6" adjustment one way or the other (as is my case, because I was able to center the wall bracket on the studs), or 2" one way and 10" the other, etc.. Mine came with security screws for securing the TV brackets to the wall mount (torx with a pin in the middle). Fortunately it also came with a tool that works with them. Be sure not to lose the tool ;-). Even if you have one, you likely don't have one that is ~1.5 ft. long, and you need that for this. When I first looked at the items in the box something didn't seem right as the back brackets didn't pivot. I though one of the pins needed to be removed from them thought there was nothing in the instructions about this. I called the 800 number and was told none of the pins need to be removed. The unit is pre-tensioned to pivot only under the weight of the TV. If you put the bracket on the ground and stand on it, you'll see it functions just fine. Most of my connections are on the bottom, left, rear of the TV. The 5 degrees of back tilt allows access to the connectors, but it is still tight and I have to do some cable installs by feel rather than by sight. Still, it is easy enought to attach all connectors and then lift the TV onto the mounting bracket. Tightening the friction fit for arbitrary angle is a bit tricky. You can tighen about 1/2 a turn, then have to pull out the spring loaded head of the tightener, turn it back 1/2 a turn, re-engage it, and then tighten another 1/2 a turn. I ended up just using the 0-degree setting and tightening the tilt lock.
