Omnimount Raises the Bar with New U3 Tilt Mount

The U3 allows the mounting of plasma display of up to 63" in size and 200 pounds in weight, while introducing several key features that take the U3 a significant step forward in plasma panel mounting.

Phoenix, Arizona, May 10th, 2004: OmniMount is pleased to announce the introduction of the new U3TILT Plasma mounting system. The U3 allows the mounting of plasma display of up to 63" in size and 200 pounds in weight, while introducing several key features that take the U3 a significant step forward in plasma panel mounting.


The wall plate is 32" wide and designed for mounting to 16" through 24" on center wall studs and uses slotted mounting holes for quick alignment. OmniMount makes this mount expandable by including extension rods and extension rails that allow you to mount plasma displays from 37" up to 63". The 24" wide center opening simplifies installation when the J -box hole isn't in the ideal position on the wall.

Ease of installation is one of the key features of the U3. The included adhesive Fast Installation Guide™ allows for the precise location of the mount to the wall and it collects the dust from drilling into the wall. If the simple instructions are followed correctly, the plasma display will be mounted safely, in the correct position and with virtually no cleanup - all in one step.

As with all OmniMount products, the U3 includes a comprehensive installation hardware package. This includes spacers that allow the installation of plasma displays with curved backs and recessed mounting lands. Once the mounting rails have been secured to the back of the plasma display, OmniMount's Lift n' Lock Installation™ feature comes into its own. The display is simply hung onto the rails of the mount; slide the TV into position and the flip -locks move into place to insure security. A small padlock can then be inserted through the flip -lock holes at this stage for extra security. Once mounted, the display can be set to the desired viewing angle, +5 through -15 degrees, by loosening and retightening the tilt tensioning levers. An attractive and functional cable cover is also included to ensure a clean and elegant finished installation.
