Launched this summer, Chief’s Thinstall Medium Dual Swing Arm Wall Mount provides an ultra-low profile for TVs 30-52”. Featuring a sleek, lightweight design, this full-motion wall mount collapses to a mere 1.3” (33 mm). When used in conjunction with Chief’s TA500 In-Wall Box, available fourth quarter 2011, the combination provides almost zero depth from the wall.

For maximum viewing potential, the Thinstall Medium Dual Swing Arm Wall Mount extends up to 25” (635 mm), allowing users to move the TV in a variety of ways to achieve the perfect viewing angle. In addition, Centris™ low-profile tilt provides up to 15 degrees of effortless fingertip adjustment helping to reduce glare, while the Centerless™ Lateral Shift offers up to 16” (406 mm) of post-installation adjustment for limitless centering capability. By adding a TA500 In-Wall Box, the mount recesses into the wall, allowing the back of the TV to sit flush with the wall for a no-profile installation.

All necessary hardware is supplied. Multiple cable channels have also been thoughtfully provided and are enclosed with covers allowing tool-free access. A wide-open wall plate allows installers to quickly place the mount and connect power. A single person can easily mount the system’s top rail and slide on the entire assembly.
