Weight limits and safety testing from my understanding, the UL one are rated lower for some reason...I wonder why Thinking Face

So I guess manufacturers can put whatever they want on the packaging...

Depends if you can mount your TV at the proper height, if it's too high, having the option to tilt it down would be nice to have, but there's more knobs and screws to adjust and more to go wrong, also usually sits further away from the wall, for better or worst.

I used my Google-fu, looks like it's the same as the Barkan E30

If you're not going to test it, you're better off putting a lower weight limit lol.

Maybe they look at a similar design by a competitor that is actually UL listed and just downrate a certain %.

One thing to note is that the Lag bolts that come with these low priced units are usually really crappy. I'd probably spend the $4 at home depot and pick up some better ones.

I bought some at HD and they also shreared off, bolts use hardened steel so they are more brittle, need to predrill larger holes depending on wood density, smaller on soft, modern SPF but older old growth will need larger holes

There's one in stock at Amazon for $20, no taxes, so its like 5 bucks more
