When setting up an entertainment center or a desk setup, the TV or desktop monitor can take up a lot of space. They aren’t a small piece of technology to begin with, and most people like to invest in large screens for improved image quality and better viewing.
Nevertheless, a TV or desktop mount will come in handy in all scenarios. They allow you to clear up space to make room for other items. There are various types of mounts: fixed, tilt, full-motion, ceiling, etc. The main issue people run into with mounts is whether it is a perfect fit for the screen or not.
Most mount and TV or desktop companies use VESA as a mutual understanding of dimensions and measurements. The VESA standards refer to the four-hole attachment interface that is on the back of the displays and the screws that are used to fit them, as well as the placement of the hole pattern.
For the most part, these VESA hole placements are found in the center of the back of the display. The downside is that not all TVs and desktops have the compatible VESA hole placements needed which makes it difficult for people to mount up their screens.
Therefore, mount adapters come in handy and are very useful. They are affordable and thankfully they are not hard to get ahold of. Simply attach the mount adapter to the mount, and the attach the TV to the adapter.
It is a simple process and much more affordable than buying a whole new mount or display. Something to keep in mind, we recommend that you don’t rely on the maximum weight capacity of the mount adapter.
