    They have to be anchored into the studs. 45lbs each weight capacity - I'm not even @ half of that.

    Hence you'll notice mine aren't dead center because of where my studs were.
    Finding metal racks is key because many are glass. Also took the front feet off my Yamaha receiver you'll notice.

    Well my 50" plasma is literally only 6" from the wall to the front of it.
    So these extend FAR past it, but that's why they are up high and out of the way at the END of my bedroom.

    Here's an angled up close pic from today so you can see.
    I'm in the middle of repainting our room , hence the different colors. The Bachelor blue bedroom's final days.....:whine:

    If you don't have any little kids, those are perfect ^ ^

    I have a 2 year old, so I couldn't go that route. Plus glass collects dust like crazy.
    I wanted my AV equipment out of reach from my Toddler. No surprise crayons in my blu-ray player.

    I got all kinds of cars stuffed into the subwoofer below the TV I have to get out before I play each movie. :crazy:

    If you have something you can put the box in below the TV still, do a single gang cut-in ring and drop the wires down the wall to another single gang cut-in ring. If it is an interior wall, it will drop easy.

    If you have a closet on the other side, use 2 single gang rings on each side and put the box in the closet. This requires the box to have RF remote capability.

    Do a shelf below the TV and drop the wires down the wall as described previously for A/C power.

    Look at OmniMount, Chief, Sanus brands to name a few. Sanus is catching up with some pretty cool options for mounting A/V gear.

    Whut?
    I actually went to watch a movie one time... PB&J in the DVD player..... so I figured I'd settle for watching an old VHS movie and there was another one in there too.

    Not a pleasant day in the DiFilippo household, lol.

    NOW... we keep all we can out of reach, but the kids are 4, 6 & 8... if they don't know by now that a friggin sammich doesn't go in the dvd / cd player / computer / VHS etc, I'm just going to give up.

    LMAO... I'm like the kitchen Nazi now... my blood pressure has become an accutely sensitive device that warns me when food or drink is about to go out of the kitchen and towards someplace that will cost me money. (Ever plop down on a sofa and have a juice box that was crammed into the cushions squirt you in the ass??? )

    If you're going to Carlisle (and I make it there) I'll tell you all about the time the kids PAINTED A ROAD all over my virtually brand new basement carpet. I'm still surprised I haven't had a stroke yet.
