Finally a TV wall mount has been engineered specifically with the Sharp 65″ HDTV in mind. The VESA pattern for the Sharp LC-65D64U is 440mm W x 650mm H. The VESA spacing of the vertical arms distance is far greater than most mounts that are out on the market today. The designers took that vertical arm spacing into consideration as well as the fact that it requires M10 screws to attach them to the back of the TV. This tilting wall mount has a 28″ wide wall plate that can mount to wood studs on 16″ or 24″ centers. Once mounted it can support up to 300 lbs. It can be mounted into concrete as well but, the minimum thickness required is 6″. Concrete anchors for this can be purchased at you local hardware store.
The vertical arm can slide laterally on the wall plate for centering if needed. When the TV is set onto the wall mounting plate it can be positioned either flat or tilted downward up to 12 degrees simply by losing a knob. When installing a large TV of this size it is always advisable to have two people to support the TV when attaching it to the wall plate. Once the TV has been placed onto the horizontal rails that support the vertical arm, secure it by tightening two locking screws located on the lower portion of the arms. This will prevent the TV from being accidentally lifted off the rails and falling onto the floor. When parked in the flat position the back of the TV will be 4.75 inches from the wall.
