WOW. Someone please raise a flag, and do it quickly in honor of this
godly being! Apparently we have found the real Mr. Perfect.
Congratulations for being so superior to everyone else.
I hope someone gave you a trophy for being such a goodie - goodie.
I bet you were the teachers pet too, and tattled on all the other kids
when you were in school!
And just so you know, while I was having a little fun on the computer at
work, everyone else was reading some crappy magazines, in between jobs.
I just happen to hate magazines. Never found one I liked!

Good answer. This is the universal method when these type of pesky problems
arise. It is certainly better than using a hydraulic jack in terms of
leaving a cleaner aperture. If we knew what model number of the mount and TV
we could present a more definitive answer. Does the OP check back? Hello,
hello, we need more details.

+1 In the skool system I worked for the teachers would take them home for
months and use their home n/w. They would ave their spouses 'Oh he works
with computers and knows what he's doing'. They wouldn't even bring them in
when they had an in-service and it was required. They would come over and
beg for one to use. Never tell a teacher or administrator no. All clouds
descend upon you. We had one boss that we had to ask for every individual
case whether to re-image it or try to fix it. Then the teacher would stand
there like 'what's taking you so long?' and pouting. It was THEIR

You get the idea. Oil change needed? I'll be back in an hour.

I appreciate all the responses. However, as I mentioned, I do not have the tool
or key to unlock the bracket. I do not believe it is a hex or requires an allen
wrench. I have a professional TV installer coming to uninstall current TV and
re-install new TV. Hopefully, he will have the tool needed.
Last month, me and the guys had to mount four 42" flat panel TV/computer
displays in a couple of large retail stores. Two
at each store with one on a CMU wall and the other on a sheet rock
wall. There is a flat horizontal strip with raised edges mounted
to the wall for the bracket on the back on the TV to hook on to.
The set is secured with two finger latches attached to two long
flat pieces of metal that engage the bottom lip of the metal strip
mounted to the wall. If you look behind the set, you will see a
flat metal finger that moves the flat locking plate when you pull
the finger (no pun) down causing the locking plate to disengage from
the wall bracket. You can then lift the TV off the wall bracket. It
