Mounting a TV on a slanted wall

I am considering hanging a 55 in samsung flat screen (not curved) on a slanted wall. I would like to have the tv hanging at an angle in front of my bed so I can lay back and watch it without straining my neck, I know... first world problems.


I saw Linus's Most Comfortable Gaming Setup video from a few years ago, where he hung a 65 in tv on a 55 degree wall.

He used this mount, which he said was capable of holding 200lbs, but is not recommended for slanted wall like he did. 



I was considering to secure the tv to the mount with 4 additional heavy duty zip ties as a fail safe in case the bracket slips out of the top or bottom. 

I attached an image of my room, poorly drew in where my bed would be, and circled the slant for the tv where i want the TV. 

Not sure if it matters, but I also want to have my desk under it, might be a bad idea if the tv falls and breaks my monitors. 


Anyone have some good ideas for how to do this? Good idea? Bad idea?


Thank you

the mount looks solid to me. but you need to find a wooden beam to anchor it safely.

but if it's a concrete wall, you need not worry.

why don't you just stick it in the flat wall like normal people, i think the slanted one is a bit high.

Should work fine, and zip ties aren't necessary due to gravity.  If a mount holds a TV on a vertical wall, a slanted is the same.  it can't slip.

I would hang it lower, but the problem is I'm trying to save space. The room isn't huge, but I need to fit a full size bed, a 6ft long desk and a dresser. 


I want to be able to watch the tv from my bed, and thats the only spot I can put the bed. I also want to fit my desk under it which will be about 5 ft tall to the top of the monitors.
