What to look for In a Pull-Down MantelMount For TV In 2022 (Buyers Guide)

Let’s face it; selecting the best pull-down mantel mount in many brands takes work. At the same time, the material and quality of every mantel mount are different. 

Additionally, some Mantelmounts have ETL certification, which ensures that mantel mount is in line with the set standards of functionality. 

So, to make things easier, we have listed a few features you look for in a mantel mount.

1-Compatibility with Design and Size of TV

TV Mantel mounts have recently changed to accommodate thin, sleek OLED and QLED TVs. In the past years, TV mounts were manufactured to hold way heavier TVs.

Choosing the right Mantelmount that is compatible with the design specification of the TV is compulsory, especially if you have a curved TV. 

The guide with the Mantel mount mentioned what TV size it could support. Several TV Mantel mounts can keep a 90 inches TV size.

While others support a 70-inch size, we mentioned the size range in the review to save time.

2-Weight Carrying Capacity

Pull-down Mantel mounts e are made from tough Aluminium or heavy-duty steel construction to hold sturdy and sleek TVs. 

Every mount has a different maximum weight carrying capacity. That is mentioned in the product specification. 

A simple way to choose is to go for a mount that supports the maximum weight. In that way, it can save you money if you replace your smaller TV with a bigger one.

3-Range of Motion

Mantelmounts have varying ranges of swivel degrees. For example, some mantel mounts can rotate to only 10 degrees. In contrast, others allow you to rotate your TV set on a 60 or 90-degree.

It’s the most important point to consider before buying the mount. Because if you choose to sit in the far right or far left corner of the room, you can tilt the screen wherever you want.

It is also effective in eliminating glare in a bright room. Because by only changing the direction of a TV, you can watch the TV in a very bright room without annoying glare on the TV screen.

4-Wire Management Panel

When we mount a TV on the wall, it generally conceals all the messy-looking wires behind. But installing a mantel mount means all those wires will be visible. While buying a TV mount, just remember to buy one that has a wire management system behind the TV.

5-Price

It’s hard to pick the best Mantelmount for your expensive TV when they are available at a wide range of prices. 

It is really confusing because pull-down mounts are sold for 25$ to 500. So what exactly is the better option? Is it the cheaper one or the expensive one?

The answer is that cheaper ones are not so flexible to move up and down easily. Even if they claim to do so, they are made up of inferior quality material. 

You must have peace of mind by installing your expensive TV over a low-quality mantel mount. So buy the one that has solid construction. Also, it should be packed with all the necessary hardware to install a mantel mount.

6-Heat Sensitivity

Many pull-down TV mantel mounts are fixed above the fireplace. The fact is often ignored is that Tv’s internal wires can damage by the incoming heat from the fireplace.

That said, the latest mantel mounts have a heat-sensitive handle that turns red when the temperature of the metal on the TV exceeds 105 degrees Fahrenheit.

However, It’s fine to buy a non-heat-sensitive Pulldown mount if you are not going to set your tv above the fireplace. 

7-Material

Many TV mounts are made up of single-piece matel. Such materials are far better than the mounts that are composed of tiny matel parts. One or two big pieces give it sturdiness. Additionally, if you have a fixed TV mount on the wall and it is not well aligned. 

Then it can be a big problem. That said, Certain mental mounts allow adjustments in level after installation. Those are better mounts. So when you are buying a mantel mount, pick the ones that are strong and allow you post-installation adjustments in the level. matel

8-Safety Features

It is mainly taken into account that the pull-down mount is UL-approved. It means the mount meets all the sustainability and safety standards. This certification grants the manufacturer to place the mark on the product. 

So if you have kids and pets at home, they must consider buying a product with UL certification. Usually, they approve a product that can hold 5 times more weight than specified by the manufacturer.

Still Doubtful About Buying a Mantel mount? Check the Benefits!

It can save you a lot of hassle. Let me elaborate on a few plus points of having a pull-down mental mount for your TV right away.

  • It saves a lot of space, thus giving your living room the classy and roomier look you would like.
