Chief Mounts Get Thinner

Chief Manufacturing announced the release of what it describes as its thinnest flat-panel tilt wall mount.

Chief Manufacturing announced the release of what it describes as its thinnest flat-panel tilt wall mount. The Thinstall Series LTTU Universal Tilt Wall Mount collapses to 0.75 inches to maintain the low profile of ultra-thin flat-panel TVs while offering 12 degrees of tilt that supports up to 100 pounds.

According to officials, Chief developed the Thinstall Series specifically for ultra-thin TVs for a seamless and clean installation with essential end-user and installer-friendly features.

The Thinstall comprises a one-piece bracket and two tilting interfaces that provide 12 degrees of tilt for the ideal viewing angle. Each interface comes with a sliding flag to secure the interface to the wall bracket and a cable stand and bottom pullout for cable access. The mount stays latched at all times, regardless of whether the screen is tiled or using the bottom pullout features. The mount is compatible with 16-inch on-center stud systems.

To create additional space behind Thinstall mounts, integrators can add an In-Wall Box Accessory (PAC520). According to the company, this simplifies plasma TV installation by providing an organized, recessed space for routing excess cables and attaching surge protectors/power conditioners.

The LTTU fits hole patterns up to 800x500mm. Chief also offers a MTTU Universal Tilt Wall Mount that fits hole patterns up to 600x400mm.

Chief says Thinstall mounts should only be used with screens 2 inches deep or less. The series is expected to begin shipping in December.
