I saw this in my local Dollarama in Vaughan, ON
Fixed TV wall mount for 14" to 44" TV's $4
Might be good for a bedroom or kids room to save space.
Can't really say how common an item this is in other Dollarama's yet though.

This should be decent as long as u go to home Depot and buy some proper mounting hardware. I wouldn't use the cheap screws/anchors that come with this

this is RFD's.. but damn 4 dollar wall mount for a $1,000 TV (maybe $500 on this forum)...

I'd check the weight and compare it to more expensive wall mounts. It's just steel after all.. just how much is included is the question.

24" shouldnt be that heavy, you should be okay. I do remember getting rosewill mounts for monitors up to 30" for like $5. 40" on the other hand I wouldn't trust..

But I guess if it’s a 6 dollar tv mount then all is good lol. Like the one found on sale from time to time on the prime cable site.

I would say that if you don't feel competent enough to assess the stability of this wall mount, or to wall mount a TV, get a professional or at least a friend with experience doing one, who's TV is still on the wall. Winking Face
It isn't really worth the risk, if you don't. That being said, unless this thing is really poorly made, I think the human element is more of a risk than the device.

Bought. Going to use it in the garage on an old 40".

Unfort I won't be able to update as I'm still finishing in there, but doesn't look any worse than the cheap Cheetah mount (Tiger Direct? NCIX?) I had used years ago in a rental suite. It's just thin steel rails - The question is who has a TV smaller than 44" these days? lol

I was gonna say. Guys are being too much of an alarmist about this sort of things without even seeing what the stand feels like.

While it is true you shouldn't cheap out on wall mounts. Wall mounts are really some very simple piece of metal. Unless it is made of plastic or something you really can't go wrong with it long as it is mounted correctly (screwed into wood frame properly being most important). Pretty much any consumer TV within that size range will be fine.

I have installed many wall mounts for myself and friends for over 10+ years and no casualties so far :)

As long as you are hitting studs and/or using good quality anchors and screws you should be fine. The potential problem I see with this mount is it isn't very wide so chances are you will only be able to hit one stud and have go use anchors for other side. Also depending where on the wall you want to mount the center point might not be aligned with any studs. If you had a bigger and wider mount you can offset it on the wall to ensure you hit the studs and slide the TV off to one side of the mount to center it.

You may also want to check the weight specs of your TV without stand and make sure it doesn't exceed 20kgs as well. I just checked for a TCL 65" and it is 17.6kg without stand so this $4 wall mount could work for it. If you are truly uncomfortable then you can spend $10-12 and get a bigger wall mount from primecables or Princesss Auto when they go on sale.

If you mount this into wall studs and keep under the weight limit, I don't see this failing. But seeing the max TV size being 44", reminds me of this Office scene lol

Damn, I already spent $5.99 on the Prime Cables one!

I saw this today as well, not sure if I would trust a Dollarama house brand, but if its all metal how bad could it be?

or just buy a bigger mount for not too much more. This would be less work and make fewer holes in your wall too.
