LCD TV bracket

So we got the bracket installed for the 32 inch LCD TV going into trailer. Photo to come soon
I'd like to know how you all secure the TV on the bracket to prevent it from moving side to side during travels.

The TV bracket I installed had a hook on the bottom. I used a nylon web strap to secure the TV. If the mount does not have any accommodation to attach a strap you could screw each end of a strap to the wall to which the mount is attached, ie find a stud. The may thing is to keep the TV from swinging out and becoming a long lever that will pry itself from the wall.

Firstly, I am assuming that you have attached the mount securely to the wall. Gotta be attached to studs or from ceiling joists (as applicable). If you've got a 32" TV, that's a lot of weight including the mount.

Most RV manufacturers are using oridinary 1" velcro straps (one on each side of TV). The straps are attached to the wall with brackets. I bought plastic ones from www.theclip.com. The clips should obviously be attached into something solid like a cabinet wall or studs.

The straps on our TV mount are in these photos. Cheap solution and works like a hot darn.

The mount is secured in a stud which was indicated on wall with a sticker saying "mount tv here).
I'll look for the strap, thanks

These clips are pretty much was i was looking for. I've been scouring hardware store looking for a little bracket into which I could just put the strap through. Thanks for the tip.
