Best Way to Raise My TV

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have the Samsung 55c8000. I'm looking to raise the TV a foot higher than it currently is. I'll display a picture of what it currently looks like in my room. I cannot use a mount that affects the wall. Must be some sort of standing mount. Here's what I'm considering so far, but I'm not sure if it's compatible with my TV.

 

Considering: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Init%26%23153%3B+-+Furniture+Mount+System+for+Most+Flat-Panel+TVs+Up+to+56%22+-+Black/2803904.p?id=1218353395334&skuId=2803904&st=furniture%20mount%20system&cp=1&lp=1

Looking at the following, it appears it will work if your TV has regular VESA mount to mount to wall.

Good find, so it's definitely something I'm considering now. Is there something similar that doesn't require so much drilling and whatnot? Because I looked over the installation, and it looks like it wants me to drill into the back of my current stand(which is fine, since it's pretty solid and wooden), but would prefer something less tedious. 

 

EDIT: Ahh wait a second, after further review it looks like some sort of clamping system? Not exactly sure how safe and sturdy that will actually be.

Can't you get a block of lumber that is 1 foot tall and wide enough to support the TV? I would try to go to the local Lowes/Menards and find something.

Will still need to secure the lumber to something. One other alternative would be to get a box one foot tool, wide and sturdy enough to set the TV on.

I might be getting the item mentioned above, found it for nearly half the price, so can't beat that. Even if it does require a bit of work. I'll post back once I've gotten it, but will keep an eye here incase someone mentions something otherwise.

 

I thought of doing a block, sort of idea. It just wouldn't look flush, plus at the price, I would assume it would cost me nearly $40, for $15 more I'll get the more flush looking mount.
