Unusual Question


A friend of mine has a three foot wide space in a closet. She would like to mount a flat screen tv to a panel that has been attached to hardware similar to a barrister's bookcase (or a single panel garage door) so that she can flip the tv out of the way when not in use.

The tv weighs about 20 pounds, so the hardware would have to be heavy duty. Does anyone know a) if there are commercially available units that small or b) have a recommendation for purchasing the hardware necessary for completing such a project?

Thanks. She has the actual mounting hardware, what I am interested in is the hinges etc that will make the unit movable.

I'd like to help, but I'm having difficulty in picturing the situation and understanding why a fully articulating bracket, like the one suggested by Willie, won't work.

Having it recess flat against the wall make more sense then it flipping up and sticking out.

Yes, the support guys at Rockler and I are on a first name basis at this point.
We may be able to get away with using their 14 1/4 inch barrister bookcase slides.

Cables for electronics do not fare well with constant motion and flexing. If the connections don't come loose, the conductors inside the cables fail.
If you must have the TV in the closet, perhaps it could be mounted on the back of the closet door. This would still allow the use of the closet and storage for the TV.
And how about the cable or satellite box. Where would you mount these?
