If you want your TV mounted in the center of a specific spot, this adapter mounting plate is the perfect solution to make that happen. It has universal holes to connect to studs which will enable you to mount your TV exactly where you want it.
Fits SS-55 & SS-65

The plate almost fit perfectly between three studs but it fell short by a little. I still have it mounted securely but the I think it should be a little longer in design. Other than that it’s perfect.
Mount is strong and sturdy. However, this mount should be included in the storm shell product. Had to wait 10 days for the mount. They should say something like this when originally purchasing the mount: “storm shell is only mountable on concrete or brick facade or with timber frame construction spaced perfectly center behind storm shell spaced at 16 inches on center.”
Additionally the mount itself needed modification. My house is newer and has 2x6 construction which makes my studs 24 inches on center. I had to drill press a hole at 24 inches on the mounting bracket for it to work. Storm shell needs to consider all types of installation with their product!
The instructions are very difficult to follow. Also be sure to keep in mind the location of the mount holes on the back of your tv. This product assumes the holes are centered on the back, but most tvs are not.
Written directions are horrible. when you follow the QR code it sends you to videos that don't even mention the adapter plate. Can't find anything on stormsheltv or youtube. wasted $35. Went out and bought anchors.
Still in the box, didn't need it. Zero star,should reconsider refunding this item
Was not needed
I only gave it 3 stars because it’s non refundable. (I did know this before ordering) I changed the way my tv was mounted after I ordered this so it was not needed anymore. If I did need it, it would’ve worked as intended.
Never unboxed it. Bought it in case I needed it so it wouldn’t delay the installation. Didn’t need it so it was expensive insurance due to being non-refundable !
Adapter Mounting Plate Was Just What I Needed!
Plate and shell will meet my unique needs.
Gets the job done
Item itself was great, i should have done a little more research prior to buying the storm shell so i could have ordered this right away.
Storm /shell and adapter
it was good but I have a question. the storm shell is black and gets super hot in the sun. What do I need to do to it before I paint it a lighter color?
