Have you ever gotten to a job and spent twice the amount of time on the install trying to figure out why someone who spent a fortune on a new TV spent less than $100 on the mount?
Why does this happen so often in our industry?
We have some answers and maybe some solutions. After all, Broadline is a solutions-oriented distributor.
Some of the challenges posed by installing TV’s on an Articulating Mount (Arm) are common to every installer, and even maybe to every install.
Here are 3 mounts that address some of the challenges, and from our experience and sales volume, have quickly become favorites for most of our dealer base in the Southeast.
