The Peerless SP850-UNLP Pull-Out Swivel Mount (Silver) combines the best features of a wall mount and a pivot arm. In the closed position, it acts as a flat or tilting wall mount. At only 3.4" away from the wall, its unique wall plate and built-in cable management neatly hide all components and cords. Extended, its sturdy arm construction smoothly glides the screen out 11.9" from the wall and allows the screen to pivot up to 45 degree. This feature not only enables the screen to be positioned for an optimal viewing angle, but it also provides easy access to the back of the screen for maintenance. It is also ideal in applications where the screen needs to be recessed into a cubby hole, custom frame or aligned into a video wall.
