cheetah sagNice mounting system with hdmi cable and level. Does sag quite a bit as it’s not very heavy duty. Specs say it supports up to 60 pounds, but maybe that is its total failure weight. Due to the sag the ball joint returns the display to vertical, rather than tilted downward. All the ball’s vertical tilt range was used to compensate for thecheetah anchor sag. cheetah ballPlenty of downward tilt available. The wall plate is decent and we like the paw print since we have cats. I used lead anchors hammered into holes drilled into mortar with a masonry bit. I only used two of the three holes to avoid drilling into a brick.  Took some effort to hang tv on the arm and get the bolt to drop through the holes with a large awkward 55″ panel.cheetah fasteners

The included fasteners were sufficient, with some creative use. The instructions were a bit cryptic due the inadequate illustrations for determining orientation of the mirror image parts.

I used double sided tape to add the level to the tv, since it’s non magnetic plastic. Handy since swinging the tv around usually results in some new horizontal tilt due to ball movement and variable sag.

Fully retracted it sits close to the wall, but there is space for a laptop server.
