Home ~ DIY TV Wall Mount, Carport, 01/31 Weight Test

Call me chicken… Call me responsible.


I am not certain the eye-hooks are screwed into the joust at a place that they will securely hold my 67lb HDTV. Today, I thought of a way to rig the mount to test its weight holding ability.

My theory is: If the mount holds 110+ lbs for 12 hrs, it should hold 67lbs, providing I have not weakened the joust-screw in point.

I’ll probably take the TV out Sunday morning. That way, one-time out and one-time in. It is a bit cumbersome to handle–definitely a 2-person job. I trust our guess will enjoy the experience. The plan is to watch the first half of the Super Bowl outside, then go in for dinner and the 2nd half of the game.
