Worked just great
Bought it based off a few reviews stating that the majority of the installs need it. I bought it as a “just in case”, but of course never needed it. So because of the non-returnable I’m stuck with a part that was not needed.
PS, absolutely LOVE the storm shell.
I installed our storm shell out doors on a deck post. The instructions for the storm shell are only for installing on studs. I had to get this adapter to make it work. There were only instructions for installing the adapter on non-standard studs, not for an individual post. The instructions overall were very confusing. I still don't know what the wood piece is installed on the back of the panel or what some of the extra holes are for. There needs to be better instructions that are clear to anyone. Also a video on using the adapter would be great. The only video I saw was for a standard installation. I still don't know how waterproof this unit is. I had to tape up several drilled holes and 't looks like rain in strong winds could get in. We'll have to see. I taped up the grommet for the cord since it wasn't waterproof.
Enjoying the TV outside by the pool
When matching 3 mounting holes for case, the TV sits a little low, would have been better an inch or 2 higher.
Thanks for the feedback. I will pass this along to our engineering and manufacturing divisions .
You WILL need this
You make your decision where you WANT your TV mounted. Odds are the studs will not line up with the Storm Shell TV bracket mount points. This mounting plate is almost a necessity.
Great product! Just put it up and had a major storm last night. TV was well protected.
