Launched on August 18th, the off-the-wall flat screen TV mount reached its goal of $25,000 within the first 30 min of going live on the crowd-funding platform
Online PR News – 28-August-2014 – San Diego, CA – Sore necks and glares due to poorly placed flat screen TV’s are a thing of the past, as MantelMount (www.MantelMount.com), the easy-to-install, off-the-wall mount that suspends any flat screen TV at eye level, launched its Kickstarter campaign on August 18th, and has since surpassed its initial goal of $25,000 by 336%. With a few hundred units already manufactured and available, MantelMount plans to send out its first shipment immediately after ending its 30-day campaign on Kickstarter, having already met its goal.
As of today, the Mantel Mount Kickstarter campaign has 347 “backers” who have funded it with $84,528 and 22 days remaining in the campaign.
MantelMount’s patent-pending construction combines high-quality automotive pistons with lightweight alloys and state-of-the-art counterbalance technology. Allowing up-and-down, tilt-and-swivel adjustability, MantelMount gives its users the preferred view of any flat screen plasma, LED or LCD TV.
The inventor of MantelMount, an avid sports and movie viewer, came up with the concept after identifying issues with flat screen TV wall mounts he’d seen on the market; particularly in that there was little to no movement or flexibility to maneuver the mount to a position that would provide the perfect view, regardless of where the viewer was sitting.
“After a soft launch of the product more than a year ago, with a simple Google Ad Words campaign, I sold out of the 100, high-cost units I had manufactured in just a matter of weeks,” said MantelMount Inventor Brian N. “When demands for the product kept rolling in at a fast pace, I knew the viability was there, but thought that there could be an efficient way to make the product more affordable, through increased production, while maintaining the features my customers valued from the original product; that’s where Kickstarter comes in to help me garner pre-orders for the product on a grander scale.”
With Kickstarter, “backers” have the option to pledge for a single MantelMount unit, starting at $199 and ranging to $249, depending on the amount of pledges offered at each level.
“We’re getting new emails every day asking when the units will be made available again and are very excited to be able to officially take pre-orders again, which will result in immediate delivery once we meet our goal,” said Brian. “With the interest we’ve already received and the issues our product can solve in homes and workplaces across the nation, we anticipate this campaign to launch us in the direction we need to be able to sell directly from our website and, ultimately, through other retailers nationwide.”
MantelMount’s five unique features, include:
1. Paintable covers that hide wall hardware to ensure the beauty of any home theatre remains aesthetically pleasing.
2. Exclusive heat-sensing handles turn red if the temperature above a fireplace exceeds a safe 110° F.
3. Complete, easy-to-follow PDF and video installation guides can be printed out or viewed on any smart phone.
4. Easy to use for anyone who can reach the handle to pull the unit down, with little exertion, and angle it towards a seating area.
5. Patent-pending construction that combines high-quality automotive pistons with lightweight alloys and state-of-the-art counterbalance technology.
MantelMount is aiming to raise $25K in crowd-funding to start the production of additional products. Pledges begin at $1 and range in amount, each with guaranteed deliverables, once the goal is achieved.

For the perfect view every time
Placing a TV above a fireplace moves the image you’re trying to watch well above eye level. Cranking your neck into an unnatural position for any extended period of time is going to cause temporary discomfort, but doing so for even short periods of time, day after day, can have lasting effects, such as chronic headaches. And then there’s the issue of anti-glare treatments, which don’t work properly unless you view the TV from straight on.
MantelMount is here, and it allows you to avoid these situation, along with many others, altogether when watching TV. No matter where you’re sitting/standing/laying/cheering in front of your TV, the positioning of the screen is yours for the taking.
MantelMount is the most premier over-the-fireplace, pull-down flat screen TV mount available on the market to date. Allowing up-and-down, tilt-and-swivel adjustability, MantelMount gives you the preferred view of your flat screen plasma, LED or LCD TV.
