Before purchasing a TV mount, consumers need to make sure a mount will fit their TV and accommodate its size and weight. Here are a few considerations you can make before you purchase a TV mount.


Flat Screen or CRT TV Mount

The first thing you need to consider when buying a TV mount is whether the television is a flat screen or a cathode ray tube (CRT TV). The mounts for these types of TVs are completely different. A flat screen mounts are simply used brackets to hold the TV in place while CRT TV requires either a platform or ceiling mount to hold them up.


Underwriter's Laboratory (UL) Listed

Underwriter's Laboratory (UL) is a global science safety company that tests various products against stringent safety standards. TV mounts that have been listed by the UL have been tested for product defects and passed strict safety tests. Beside that, you can look for mounts that are approved by other third-party agencies like Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA), which sets industry-wide standards for compatibility.


Mount Compatibility

Most mounts are universal and fit about 90 percent of the time. Make sure the TV mount is compatible with an existing television. However, check with the manufacturer beforehand. There will be a link to a compatible mount finder for specific brands and models on manufacturers' websites. 


TV Size and Weight

TVs can range from under 20 inches to well over 70 inches. When buying a universal mount, be sure it can support the weight and size of a certain television. Adequate support is needed because the mount will be connected to the wall.
