The Best TV Mounting Brackets for Black Friday TV Purchases

It’s that time of year again. You’d be surprised just how many great TV deals are going on this Black Friday, and, of course, when you get that brand new TV set, you’re going to want to mount it on the wall.

From above-the-fireplace mounts to curved TV wall mounts, fully articulating mounts to minimalistic, flat-against-the-wall-mounts, we’ve found the brackets that come with the full package. We showcase the brands that bring you solid construction, great looks, and super stability – with options that span from extremely economical to straight-up luxurious. (We totally understand the urge to pamper your new purchase.)

Read on for our TV mount primer and our top picks for TV mounting brackets. 

What’s in a Wall Mount?

There are three main types of TV wall mounts, each one serving a different need. They are:

Fixed TV Mounts

Best TV mounting bracket: this is a fixed TV mountThese unobtrusive brackets keep your television set tight and secure, right up against the wall. They are not flexible – you put your TV where you want it, and that’s where it stays. But they are reliable, affordable, and they look great – which makes them a sure bet for mounting a television that’s usually viewed from a single spot. 

Tilting TV Mounts

Best TV mounting bracket: Tilting TV mounting bracketTrue to their name, these mounts have one advantage over fixed mounts, which is that they’re tiltable. They can be slightly pricier, and aren’t quite as slim as the fixed mounts, but they can be mounted higher so that they television can be angled down for good viewing. 

Full-motion TV Mounts

One of the types of the best TV mounting brackets we'll share is a full-motion TV mount.These mounts can do it all – extend outwards, tilt up or down, turn from side to side, and even swivel a bit. They’re the most expensive of the lot, but also incredibly popular; and though they can never retreat as far back against the wall as the other two types of mounts, people like them for their versatility. 

The Best TV Mounting Brackets of 2019

Knowing which type of bracket you’re in the market for can help narrow down your choices. Here are our top picks for this year’s cutting edge TV mounts. Your new Black Friday TV purchase will thank you. 

Best Full Motion Mount

One of the best TV mounting brackets is the VideoSecu full motion TV mount.

What it’s called: VideoSecu Heavy Duty Mount

We love this fully articulating mount from VideoSecu for lots of reasons: It’s made of super-rugged steel, is versatile – it can hold 40-inch to 70-inch TVs, and even some 88-inch LEDs – has moves like a ballerina, and can still support a whopping 135 pounds. Throw in its built-in cord concealer technology and we’re sold. 

Best Tilting Wall Mount

Our pick for the best TV mounting bracket that tilts is the ONN Tilting Mount

What it’s called: ONN Tilting Mount for 32-to-70-inch TVs

This mount does its job, and does it well. Bringing a respectable 12-degree up-and-down tilting angle, this sleeper is tougher than it looks, supporting 80 full pounds of viewing goodness. With a flexibility we’d like to see in our significant others, you can bring anywhere from a 32-inch TV to a 70-inch TV, and the ONN tilting TV mount can handle it. Oh, and it comes with cables, too.

Best Luxury Mount

The best TV mounting bracket in terms of quality and design is the Vogel 180 Degree Swivel mount

What it’s called: Vogel’s 180-Degree Swivel and Tilt Full Motion Mount

If the price tag didn’t already tip you off, the design on this mount just screams elegance. But it’s more than just a pretty face – Vogel’s 180-degree swivel and tilt mount not only delivers as much or more than the competition, but it does so while also being the flattest fully-articulating mount on record. If you want the best of both worlds, this luxury mount puts its money where its mouth is – it has a stunning 20-inch tilt, 180-degree rotation, 25-inch extension forward, and then it recedes to a mere 1.4 inches from the wall. Worth the splurge. 

Best Fixed Mount

The best fixed TV mounting bracket is by MountIt!

What it’s called: MountIt! Low-Profile Fixed Bracket

We honestly can’t think of anything more a fixed bracket can bring to the table. This MountIt! Bracket puts the TV an almost flush 1-inch from the wall, supports a whopping 220 pounds, has VESA compatibility up to 800x400 (most mounts top out at 600x400), and can hold anywhere from a 42-inch to 70-inch TV. Who could ask for more?

Best Above-the-Fireplace Mount

The best TV mounting bracket for over the fireplace.

What it’s called: MountIt! Fireplace TV Mount

We don’t recommend that you mount a TV over an active fireplace, but if you choose to do so anyway, or if your fireplace or mantel isn’t active, the least we can do is suggest a bracket that will give you the perfect viewing experience. This MountIt! Bracket extends forward and down over the mantel for easy viewing at eye level. Moving it up or down is super easy with the fluid-motion gas spring counterbalance mechanism, and it’s about as versatile as they come. It can hold up to 154 pounds, is VESA compatible up to 800x600, and can hold anywhere from a 50 to 100-inch TV.

Best Curved Mount

What it’s called: Loctec Curved TV Wall Mount

This bad boy will hold up to 99 pounds, and can handle any curve you throw at it. Designed especially for curved TVs, the Loctec can also do all the usual tricks: 180-degree swivel, 10-degree tilt, all while fitting TVs from 32- to 70-inches. Did we mention it’s designed especially for curved TVs?

How Much Does Gutter Cleaning Cost?

Cleaning out your gutters is one of the most dreaded tasks of the fall, but it’s also one of the most crucial to get done. Though it may not seem like a huge deal to skip cleaning them out, failing to clean your gutters could cause a clog. And because your rain gutters are designed to move the flow of water away from your home, this could potentially cause damage to the roof, the walls, and even the foundation.
