BRIEF DESCRIPTION:

With the push of a button, this mount extends your TV out from the wall above your bed’s headboard so you can watch TV comfortably while lying down or sitting up in bed. Closing flat against the wall, your television will be completely hidden. The arms of the mount are designed to conceal the cables that connect to your TV. You can easily install these cables yourself. When you’re not watching TV, close the mount to completely hide your TV behind the attached picture frame.

HISTORY:

Introduced in 2010, our manually operated Extended Flip-Out has proven itself against the test of time. Our first customers still use theirs today! In 2012 we received an INNOVATION AWARD at CES for this product, and in 2014 we received patent approval!  This is our newest upgrade, introduced in September 2017.

WALL MOUNTING:

There are 12 mounting slots spaced at 16″, 24″, and 32″ spacing to correspond with standard stud walls.  The product comes with lag bolts meant for fastening to wood studs.  However, with appropriate fasteners, you can also attach this product to metal studs, concrete, block, and 3/4″ plywood.  Contact us for more info regarding alternative structures and fasteners.

TV COMPATIBILITY: 

Click on the “Recommended TV Specs” (tab above) for TV fit specifications.    These mounts are adjustable to fit different TV heights without affecting the Artwork/Picture frame size. You’ll want to refer to the Maximum TV Dimensions for specifics, but in general, here’s what to consider.  TVs vary significantly in depth (thickness), so this is the first dimension you should consider when choosing a TV.  The maximum TV depth is also affected by the picture frame you choose.  Feel free to contact us to verify a TV fit.

CABLES:

You can fit up to 6 cables in total (3 in each arm). Cables are easily installed inside channels along both arms.
There are cutouts along the top edge of the wall mount bracket for cable access to the wall.
Where to put your cable box & DVD player? There are multiple ways to facilitate this. It’s easier explained over the phone. Give us a call.

PERFORMANCE & DURABILITY:

Through careful design and testing, we developed this patented design that counter-balances the TV’s weight through a system of cleverly arranged linkages that do not wear over time.  This product is made of steel parts and is incredibly strong, rigid, and reliable. It will stand the test of time.  We use 3 layer bearings (Teflon coated, brass lined, and steel-backed). Two high-torque Planetary Gear motors drive the mount.  Should any issue arise with a motor, they are replaceable.

The Flip-Around mounts are designed to fit various sizes of TVs (see the maximum dimensions specified below).  If you have any questions or if your TV falls outside these dimensions, please feel free to call 1-208-287-8882, click the Live Help box in the lower right corner of your screen, or send us an email

How’s the Artwork or Mirror work?

How’s the artwork installed? Install artwork or mirror in the picture frame just like a standard picture frame.  Lay the artwork in the frame then use the supplied hardware to hold it in place.

When is the artwork installed?  You can install or replace artwork (or mirror) anytime without disassembling the TV mount or removing the TV.  So, you can install the TV mount and picture frame then decide on artwork later.  Simply, detach the picture frame from the TV mount, insert or replace your artwork, then re-attach the picture frame.


What are my options?

OPTION 1: MIRROR

You can order a mirror from your local glass shop and install it into our picture frame using the supplied hardware.  You’ll want to have the mirror cut to the dimensions shown in the table below.  For safety, request that the mirror is backed with safety backing.  When the TV is extended you will see about 4″ of the back of your mirror above and to the sides of your TV.  Since the mirror safety backing is likely white, we recommend applying black duct tape in these areas.  This isn’t necessary but is an easy way to black out the background around your TV.  (Gorilla is a reliable brand found at most hardware stores)

OPTION 2: Source artwork locally or use your own.

You can order artwork from a local photo printer or art supplier and install it into our picture frame using the supplied hardware.  Here’s what you want to request, “canvas, mounted on 3/16” board (preferably black if available).  You’ll find artwork dimensions listed below as well as in your instructions booklet.   If you’d like to install something different, please contact us to discuss your options and specific product requirements.

OPTION 3: Order a High-Quality Canvas print from Hidden Vision

You can order High-Quality canvas prints from us.  Artwork ships separately and can be installed at any time after the TV and picture frame are installed so no need to rush a decision.  We stretch our canvas prints over a rigid hardboard sized to fit your picture frame. The canvas will be coated with a UV protective Coating and the back is finished with a black border so as not to be an eyesore when watching TV.
