The SmartMount family includes nine models in flat and tilting styles, including four new designs to accommodate smaller displays. The mounts fit flat-panel screens ranging from 10in. to 63in. and offer up to 12in. of side-to-side adjustment. All models include easy-to-install wallplates. Socket pin security fasteners allow installers to quickly tighten two screws that secure the screen to the wallplate to prevent accidental movement and flat-panel theft.
