According to this news report, Ergotron, a major manufacturer of TV wall mounts is recalling more than 215,000 television wall mounts:
“The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the mounts are being recalled because a weld can break causing the TV to fall. The recall includes 8 different models and were sold nationwide from February 2012 until January of 2013
The adjustable Ergotron interactive wall mount is designed for flat panel displays and televisions which allows users to reposition their display angles. The wall mounts consist of three parts including a wall mount plate for securing the system to the wall; an extendible arm that allows the user to adjust the position of their television in multiple directions and a monitor plate for securing the arm to the television.
Ergotron has received three reports of the monitor plate separating from the wall mount system. Consumers reported property damage to components of the wall mount unit. No injuries have been reported.”
Thankfully, no-one was hurt and Ergotron is offering a free repair kit (see article for details.)
Obviously, a TV lift is safer than a wall mount, and the investment is well worth the money! Here are just a few reasons why you should consider a Nexus 21 TV lift instead of a wall mount:
- Nexus 21 sells the safest lift system on the market, with safety software that causes the lift to stop and reverse if it encounters resistance, no exposed gears, tracks or pinch points, and a product design that allows for break-away lids.
- Nexus 21 sells the best quality lifts; quiet (rated to 5db – about the same as an automatic car window); reliable (tested far beyond any limits they will ever encounter in actuality); versatile (twenty models with multiple applications for each) and easy to install.
- Nexus 21 sells the most affordable lift – our lifts are the least expensive American made lifts you will find! We also cover everything with our 5 year full replacement warranty.
- Nexus 21 has top notch customer service, from real people answering each call to great service that leads some to call us the “Zappos of the lift industry”. We love what we do, and it shows.
