Awesome Or Crap? Installer Parts 37″ – 65″ TV Corner Mount Review!

Is the 37 to 65 inch tv corner mount from
Installer Parts actually useful or a piece of junk? Keep watching to find out. Welcome to The Hippie Geeks! If you enjoy this video, be sure to subscribe
and leave a comment below! We recently bought a new 65� TV, and we
wanted to be able to wall mount it in the corner of our room. After searching Amazon and reading more reviews
than I care to admit, we settled on the 37 to 65 inch TV corner mount from Installer
Parts. It had a ton of great reviews, and the price
was perfect at just under $60. The front of the box gives you all of the
important specifications. The max VESA mounting pattern is 800×400,
max load is 132 pounds, it has 120 degrees of swivel and 15 degrees of tilt. Opening the box shows you the simple mounting
instruction pamphlet, the business side of the mount and several cardboard boxes. The pamphlet is straightforward, with instructions
for multiple mounting configurations. It comes with the hardware to corner mount
it into both studs or drywall and can also be used on a flat wall if you choose. Opening the first cardboard box shows us the
two mounting bars that will go onto the back of your TV, individually wrapped so that they
do not scratch each other in shipping. The second box has all the mounting hardware
that is included, and there is a lot of it. In a smaller bag are the lag bolts that will
be used to secure the mount to the wall, along with the wall anchors you would use in a drywall
application. The larger bag has all the bolts, spacers
and plates you could possibly need to mount just about any TV to this thing. Kudos to Installer Parts for being so thorough. The third box was a surprise to me, as I had
not even realized that they were including a six-foot HDMI cable with this mount. Depending of what you already have you may
or may not need it, but it was a very nice extra to discover. After that, you can simply finish pulling
the mount out of its box. At this point I laid it down to try out all
the points of articulation. Make note of these arrows on each of the mounting
plates. When installing this to the wall, be sure
to face the arrows up, not down. I may have initially misread the instructions
and installed it upside down. Possibly. The first thing I did was to get the mounting
bars attached to the back of the TV. This involved using the cone shaped spacers
that came with our TV on the bottom holes. If you need something like that but do not
have it anymore, there are a ton of extra spacers in this kit that could be used if
necessary. We needed to use two of the longer large bolts
on the bottom holes, and two of the shorter large bolts in the top holes. We also had to use one of the thin black spacers
on each bolt to keep them from bottoming out and not tightening down all the way. Just experiment a little with the included
hardware and you should be able to get everything hooked up nice and tight. After that it is time to get the mount up
on the wall. If you are going to mount it in a stud, use
a stud finder to mark its location in the wall, and measure the height up from the floor
that you want to place your holes. I pre-drilled the top holes with a bit that
is half the size of the lag bolts. This makes it easier to tighten them down,
and helps to keep the stud from splitting. After that, tighten down both of the top bolts
snug, but not completely tight. You are now going to use a level on each bracket
before drilling your pilot hole and securing the bottom bolts on both sides. After that it is down to pre-drilling the
middle hole and getting the bolt secured. From this angle you get a really, really good
look at that upside-down arrow that is trying to tell me that I am doing it wrong. Make sure all of your lag bolts are secured
nice and tight, then get ready to attach the TV to the mount. For this part, you will likely need a second
and possibly third person. If your TV is heavy, get some help lifting
it. This will allow you to look around the back
of the TV as you are holding it, so that you can properly hook it onto the mount. If you can lift it by yourself, you will want
someone behind the mount guiding you as you try to hang it, because you really don�t
want your tv falling at this point. Wait a minute, did someone say falling TV? Yeah, this happened too. Luckily the TV was unharmed, but man that
scared the crap out of me. Now that the TV is on the mount, get underneath
it and tighten down these screws that are pre-attached to the mounting bars. This will secure the TV to the main mount. Finally, get the TV tilted properly for your
application, and tighten down these bolts on the back. There are a pair of thumb screws that it appears
you are supposed to use instead, but my tv was too heavy and it was just easier to tighten
the bolts. We have now been using it for a couple of
weeks, and I have absolutely zero complaints. It is rock steady, has some room for adjustment
even with a 65� TV mounted to it and was a breeze to install. I highly recommend this to anyone looking
for a solid, affordable TV wall mount, especially if you need one for a corner mount application. If you are looking to buy it, I will go ahead

  1. I bought this mount but haven’t decided if I should go with a 55” or 65” tv. I am worried about the 65” being too close the walls on the edges. Do you think there would enough space with a 65” ?
