When you are looking to mount your television set, it is important that you get the right wall bracket or ceiling mount for your needs. One of the biggest questions that people have is how much an LCD wall bracket or plasma wall bracket can hold. That answer does not have an exact number. In fact, wall mounts are made for different weight limits and screen sizes, and you must be mindful of that when shopping.

Before you try to find out how much your LCD wall mount or plasma wall mount can hold, you must first find out how heavy your LCD TV or plasma TV set is. You will not be able to shop for your wall bracket if you are not aware of the weight of your television set. When you look for the weight of your TV, do not guess. You need to know an exact weight in order to find a wall bracket that will hold your television securely in place.

You also must know the exact screen size of your TV. Again, you should not guess or estimate. Find out the exact specifications so you can find a wall bracket that can hold a TV of that size.

After you find out the exact weight and size of your LCD TV or plasma TV, you can then look for the appropriate wall bracket. You will need to find a wall mount that holds that weight and is meant for that screen size range. Remember, you have to look at each individual bracket to see how much it holds. There is not a certain weight that brackets hold. When you do find an LCD bracket or plasma bracket that you want, make sure that it will hold your television set.

Occasionally, you might find yourself in a situation where you cannot find the weight of your television set. When this occurs, you cannot safely purchase a wall bracket until you find out the weight and size of your TV. If you cannot find the weight then you need to call the manufacturer to get the specifications. This is the only safe way for you to proceed with purchasing a wall bracket, or indeed a ceiling bracket.

You may have to ask the manufacturer or a salesperson that has experience in order to find out which bracket or mount will hold your TV. A salesperson or the manufacturer might be able to help you match up with the bracket that you need based on experience alone. That can save you time when looking.

Be sure to be careful when you pick out your wall bracket. Because there is not a set amount of weight that wall brackets hold in general, you need to make sure that you get the right one for your television set to avoid accidents in the future. Work with salespeople and read the specifications so you can find the best bracket for you. Remember, most companies will not accept a returned bracket once you have tried fitting it - be certain you have the right item before placing your order!
