First, depending on how old this is, it may be so heavy it requires
two people, two men, to hold it up. I helped a guy mount one of
those, but I don't remember what year it was. More than 6 years ago.
Secondly, does it really take an Allen wrench? A hexagon hole?
If so, there are sets and bigger sets. Once I got a set with 15
sizes, I think I had enough sizes. Also there is metric and
I have no idea if any use Allen wrenches or not.
I have not really looked at that many commercial brackets, mine are
usually home made but usually the ones I see have a spring loaded
catch that holds the TV to the bottom rail and it just hooks over the
top rail. Some have string bobs you pull, others have a little tab you
push. Either way you tilt the bottom out and it is still hanging from
the top if you don't tilt it too far. You can jam a piece of cardboard
between the bottom rail and the clamp so it doesn't lock up while you
walk around front to get a good grip on it. Then just lift it off Be
sure all of the cables are disconnected and out of the way so you
don't get hung up.

The two braces that attach to the TV have "hooks" at the top and bottom.
Once you hang the TV on the mount with the top hooks and swing the bottom
of the TV in, the bottom hooks go under the bottom rail of the mount so that
the TV can't be lifted (or bumped) up (and off) unless you swing the
Then, to prevent the bottom of the TV from swinging out, there are 2 large
Allen head bolts that go through the top of the mount and contact the top of
the braces on the TV. Once those bolts are tightened against the braces, the
top of the TV can't go in, so the bottom can't swing out.

You will notice that the date of the original Joe J post was 12/2011.
However, Nancy seems to have revived the thread yesterday.
The subject is the same, but the question (and mounting method) is different.

I'm curious, where did you find that date? I looked and did not find it.
However, it seems that all posts from
(Some Name) firstname.lastname@example.org
are replays. Probably from "Homeowners Hub".
I'm not sure what the point is, except to keep usenet alive.
Seems to make little sense to reply to most of them, because there is no
REAL OP.... But a few of them may help someome, I suppose!

For a brief time I worked at a "temporary job", a company where I had to
use a computer and contact a list of businesses, to make sales of their
products. This was in 2001, and we had Windows 2000. We could access the
web, but they had most popular websites blocked. (for example ebay). I
learned that it was blocked in the HOSTS file. But we could not modify
the settings within Windows. I easily got around that, using the DOS
command line, and within minutes I was able to access any website. So,
while others were sitting there bored (between our actual work), I was
shopping on ebay and looking at humorous pictures. I began saving some
of those pictures too. which would get everyone in the office laughing,
because I found a way to also send those pictures to others on the
intranet (not internet), which was just within our building.
The boss never caught on to this the whole time I was there. Soon this
job (being temporary), came to an end. Before I left, I wanted to clean
up my computer, but wanted to save those pictures. We could not use a
floppy (I tried) in those computers. That was simple enough, I just
emailed all the pictures to my own email address at home. Then I had to
once again go to the command line (Dos) to delete the pictures and
restore the original HOSTS file (which I had backed up). When I left
that job, the computer was the same way I got it.
I was always surprised the techicians who maintained the network never
caught on, however if they did, they probably just looked at those
humorous pics and laughed and never said anything to the management. I
actually think they did know, because one of them was always cracking me
up with jokes and I rarely saw him do that with other employees.
I'm sure its not as easy to tamper with modern operating systems, but
Win2000 was pretty easy to tinker with.

Not just today. After work or on days off I would often get in
arguments with guys who would be posting from their work.
Usually they were whining about other workers being deadbeats.
I had no problem pointing that out.
Hell, two managers of mine would bump bid each other's stuff they were
selling on eBay.
I worked all day on the computer, and never thought about going on the
net. Anyway, I always had a better computer at home, but the point is
it's a poor work ethic.
