Chief® Provides Flat Panel Tilt at the Touch of a Button

The new CM8T15U™ automatically adjusts to preset positions for viewing.

Minneapolis, MN. - - (December 2008) - www.chiefmfg.com - Chief Manufacturing, the industry leader in flat panel and projector mounting solutions, announces the release of the CM8T15U Automated Tilt Mount, providing smooth flat panel tilt at the touch of a button. The CM8 provides automated tilt when you turn on your TV and when the TV is powered off, it automatically returns to a low -profile, flush position.


Often times, obstacles in a room require a flat panel to be mounted higher than the ideal viewing height. The CM8 works to solve this problem, providing smooth, motorized tilt 2 degrees up and 13 degrees down. When not in use, the CM8 blends into décor, featuring an extremely low -profile design, at only 3.6" (91 mm) from the wall.

For easy installation, the CM8 mounts directly to studs and is designed with Chief's exclusive Glide Lock™ latching mechanism, to ensure a secure installation. The mount features a universal interface to fit most flat panel TVs on the market, and can be used with an IR remote control or optical sensor.
