Wall mounting a TV is a task that should not be taken lightly. There’s an art to getting that perfect spot, that perfect type of mount and that perfect angle. And, as with any art, there are those out there who are masters of the craft and those who sadly fall short of the high glorious standard set by those masters. Today we celebrate the Rembrandts and the Picassos of the TV wall mounting world, those fine folks who understand that hanging a television on a wall is as delicate a process as hanging the Mona Lisa in the Louvre…well maybe it’s not that delicate a process, but you get the idea.
