Hmm? Is the bracket you speak of, is the actual part that goes to the TV, then mounts to the remaining piece on the wall.. If the 2 deep V's look like an "X", then that is the mount. It should separate from the actual wall mount. The holes then line up to the holes on the back of the TV and get screwed in. Perhaps a picture would help. It might be called a "level mount" I think if you do an internet search you will find them.
Good Luck, enjoy the warmth, it was only -7 here today in Cleveland thank god it's starting to warm up!
