The Extra Travel Down and Out Motor Mounts are the exact same mount as the standard D&O motor mount, except it has a 4″ longer swing arm. Which means it can do 7″ more of travel for a total of 34″, and handle 20″ shelves, nothing else comes close. The pictures in the gallery show how the two mounts compare.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT MOUNT VARIANT AND ACCESSORIES FOR YOUR HOME
Step 1: Fixed or Swivel
- SWIVEL: Choose if you want to be able to adjust the angle of the TV left and right when mounted. Perfect for big rooms, rooms with lots of different seating options, or for those with adjacent kitchens to view TV while cooking. Swivel mount will swivel a total of 66 degrees right and left.
- FIXED: Choose if you don’t expect to need to change the angle of your TV. Perfect for regular room sizes/setups, rooms with seating directly in front of and parallel to the TV, bedrooms, etc.
- Outside of these differences, the Fixed and Swivel Mount are otherwise exactly the same (same vertical travel, adjustable tilt, weight limits, etc.)
Step 2: IP or RF
- IP, WiFi Enabled: The mount can be easily connected to a home network through WiFi (can not be hardwired). Mount can be controlled from a browser on the same network as the mount, which means it can be controlled by a phone, tablet, and computer. IP also means it is easy to connect to any major Home Automation system which we have drivers for. Comes with IR remote.
- RF Remote: Comes with Easy to use right out of the box RF and IR remote. RF remote doesn’t need line of sight and comes with a wall mountable holder. IR receiver can be used to integrate with Smart Remotes and Home Automation systems with an IR emitter.
Step 3: Mounting Option
- We recommend figuring out what the Mount will attach to before ordering. Determine the layout of the studs inside of the wall where you will be mounting your Dynamic Mount. You will need a stud finder to detect your stud placement.
- FRAME: For two studs up to 24″ apart, stone, or brick fireplaces. If unsure order the Frame because it covers Single Stud and most other situations. Frame mounts to wall first, then mount hooks onto frame. This is the most common option used and the easiest to install. Handles up to 90 lbs.
- SINGLE STUD: For one stud, centered on the TV. If unsure, order the Frame mount because that can be used with a Single Stud also. The Single Stud mount generally has a reduced weight capacity of 60 pounds maximum, this is because a single 2×4 stud isn’t strong enough to hold more, the mount itself is plenty strong enough so if you are attaching to something stronger than a single stud, the mount can handle more weight up to 90 lbs.
- Extra Travel (XT) Rough in Box: Ultra Slim with the TV only being 1.5″ off of the wall. Box mounts in wall between 2 studs spaced 16″ apart. Has integrated knockouts for electrical supplies. See XT Rough in Box Addendum for more details. Works only with the Swivel Version of the Mount.
Step 4: Accessories
