These are all very helpful. ccsvolsfan, your suggestion gave me a new idea that morphed into what I will try. I looked today under the sink and pulled the drawer at its side out. The cabinet is affixed to what looks like a 1"X2" "stud." When I get the unit that Mikejax recommended I will install the holder that permanently is attached. After measuring distances to make sure the new hole will be in an appropriate spot, I will drill a very small hole through the 1"X2" under the sink and punch through the skin. I will then attach one screw for unit holder and then drill the second tiny hole through the 1"X2" and screw the second screw for the unit holder through this hole. I will then have two screws anchored in wood and sheet metal. I will report on success or failure later. I will not try this for a couple of months as I am leaving soon on a six week stay in Santa Cruz, CA.
Thanks again for ideas.

Pod2Vibe- it would be nice to see how you did that in daylight. Your photo is too dark to see.

That picture is quite dark on the android app, I noticed. Less dark on the web view. I will search my photos for a daytime shot.

Here is what I used for a mount:

Mounted base plate with self tapping tek screws (hex head) and it is very secure. 32" LED TV is also very light.

Very quick to setup and remove.

So do you remove the tv mount for travel and just leave the bracket installed?

That is correct, the mount & TV slides right out of the base plate for travel.

Base plate is very slim and clean looking, see pic. It has an Allen security screw, so the TV does not walk away.

Kit comes with two base plates. I mounted the other base plate in my back yard.

Looks good. Think I'll get one to put the bedroom tv on. Thanks for the info!

It is a nice treat to have one outside.

At first I did try the bedroom TV outside, but it was a little on the small side.

So I bought another 32" and I store it in the cab over area while traveling.

Cheers,

Did you hit a stud? If not, how thick is the material you screwed into?
Thanks.

I did hit a "Balsa Wood" stud. The mount is very secure, though.
