Generally speaking, your TV can be mounted onto the lift so long as your TV’s VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) standard is smaller than the mounting hole dimensions listed. The VESA standard comes with 2 numbers, for example, 200mm x 200mm. The first number is the width and the second number is the height of the mounting hole locations.
Another consideration for TV size compatibility is the length of travel. If you wish to completely hide your TV above the ceiling then the length of travel must be longer than the height of the TV. For example, if you have a TV with a 28” height then choosing the TY-05-30 with a 30” length of travel will be suitable. When the lift is fully lowered, your entire TV is visible. When the lift is fully raised then it will travel a total of 30” upwards, thus completely hiding your TV. If you have a TV with a 34” height when the lift is fully lowered you will have the top portion of the TV still hidden above the ceiling.
The exception to sizing based on the travel length is if you do not wish to fully hide the TV above the ceiling. For example, if you are mounting the lift against a wall without anything covering the TV as it raises and lowers. For this, you simply choose the travel length you require.
Once you have chosen the best lift model based on the TV size compatibility and ideal viewing height, the final and arguably most important step is to ensure that you have enough space above the ceiling to install the lift. As seen in the Model Length Comparison diagram above, each lift has a different length of travel and fully raised length.The fully raised length determines the minimum vertical space required to install your lift if you wish to have the bracket at the bottom of the lift level with the ceiling when fully raised. This bracket is designed for you to mount a cut-out of your ceiling so that when fully raised, the lift and TV are completely hidden. This bracket can be removed if you do not wish to add a ceiling cover.
