While certain wall mounts will allow you to move your TV around on an extendable arm, their range of movement is limited by the wall itself. Pillar-mounted televisions have a much greater range of motion because of the fact that their movement isn’t impeded by a wall behind them. This allows for a greater choice of seating arrangement with pillar mounts
While you may think mounting a television on a concrete pillar would require professional installation, it can actually be done by two people within minutes without any specialized tools or training. That’s because the mount is not bolted onto the pillar, therefore it does not require drilling into concrete to affix it. Rather, it is held on securely by straps.
While having straps hold up your 65 inch television up might sound unlikely, keep in mind that these are the same industrial grade straps and tightening/locking mechanisms that are used in the freight hauling industry. They are designed and made to keep the heaviest loads in place, so holding a TV and a TV mount onto a pillar is light work for them. The straps that Condo Mounts uses are rated to hold up to 30 kg (66 lbs).
To hide any unsightly cords, you can get affordable and tasteful cable concealers known as “raceways.” They are solid, plastic “boxes” that hold all the cords related to your TV. They can run down the pillar and to the nearest outlet with only a minimum amount of cords actually being visible.
If you have extra equipment like a cable box, a video game console or speakers that you want to mount along with your TV, you can get additional mounts to hold these pieces of equipment using the same one-of-a-kind mounting technology.
Using straps to hold the mount and TV in place means that it is not permanently fixed to one pillar. If you decide to change where you want your television to be situated, you simply take the TV off the mount, undo the straps, move the mount to a new pillar, refasten the straps, remount the TV and reposition your raceway cable concealers. If you move out of your condo, the pillar mount leaves no trace that it was ever there.
