On the ceiling mounts, we use two ratcheting pulleys attached to the unistrut, which we bolt to the rafters, and up she goes. This makes it much easier than using four Mexicans and a scaffold. ... Yes, I have done that before-Don't Ask!<sign295> :)

The 1/2 ton come-along method is probably a good way. The best wopuld be to get a scissor lift and another dude. I can carry a 42" LCD under one arm. 2 guys should be able to handle a 60" pretty easily if they can get into position. Basically. after you have everything in place all you have to do is lift it up and set it on the mount then lock it down.

I had one fall the other day. A 37" viSIO lcD on a Peerless articulating arm. I know the client and his buddies were messing with it and must of tweaked it real hard to pull it out of the wall. Fortuately nobody got hurt and and unfortuately the Visio didn't break.

for a couple hudred bucks a year, you can get your insurance agent to add a special install rider on your policy that covers your costs of the equipment for damage during transportation, install, etc.

my insurance agent said that if a guy wanted to be cheap (and unprofessional, imho), you could have the customer pay for the tv, sign off that it is his, and sign a damage waiver for your delivery and install. then if you drop it, it is the customers homeowners liability that would pay for the $11,000 mistake.

I looked at their "Superwinch Light Duty T1500 Winch " - $170. :eek:
I've seen them on eBay as low as $50.

However, Superwinch is not just low-cost, it's CHEAP.

I get higher-powered, full kit, unlabeled Warn winches off of eBay for less than $170.

Im hanging my plasma tonight. The idea just came to me that, it may be wise to incorporate a fan(s) with the install.

Anyone have any suggestions. Looking for something that can be found at the local hardware store. I have a buddy coming to help me tonight, so I don't have the luxury of doing mail orders.

Why? EMF? Noise? I was thinking a fan with a low DB rating would do the trick. I was thinking that if I have issues with the fans I could just not use them. If they work, fine.

Is there an alternative for external cooling, or is the internal cooling sufficient. This is kind of an older unit. Manufacture date is Aug. 2007

The TV was a floor model and it was selling for $576. Its a 50 inch. It was an impulse buy, so I didnt read up on the unit. Took the kid to CC so he could spend some of his birthday cash. While browsing around the store to kill time, I saw the unit. I knew it wouldn't last long, so I made the purchase. The consumer reviews report that this unit gives off alot of heat. This is why cooling was a concern to me.

What brand is it? Are you just going to hang it on an open wall? It should be fine. All Plasmas generate heat and an external fan is unnecesary unless you are putting it in a cabinet.

I'm with Lenny - it's probably NOT needed for this case, but one general possibility for fan power is to use the TV's USB media port (if it has one).

Be careful of maximum current draw, but it can be useful.

Its a Samsung. Its installed over the fireplace, which I dont use very often. I didnt install the fan. IMO, its not putting off any more heat than any other appliance. I saw MANY consumer reviews saying this model put off large amounts of heat. I don't see it. Installing a fan would have been a waist of time.



thanks for the input
