Every problem we have had, and there weren't many, have been extremely well handled by FR direct). SabreSam helped out in getting a replacement to me. I think my 31RETS is back to front compared to yours in that the pin is on the outer side of the slider, and the other end is screwed into the chassis. Now I know what the probable cause is I'll go attack the refit tomorrow, Tx rain permitting.


Hi. Our straps have just arrived and we will be tackling installation next few days. There were no instructions with them. Did you mount the inside end with the screws in the same location(s), or did you mount further forward ? Thanks for any input you can provide.

Hey SabreSam, Thanks for the clarification on the "6". That makes more sense than what I was told.

I made a bracket out of 3/4" wide strap metal bent into a "Z" shape to move the interior mounting point (the mounting point that is on the chassis, not the exterior portion of the slide) inward and downward. The exterior mouniting point is a rod pointed down on a bracket. I have plans to change the mount and bring the rod down, but in the mean time, I just slid the strap down on the rod and used a couple of wire ties to keep it from falling off the rod. This allowed the strap to go under the slide mechanism, and by moving the interior mounting point in as well as down, the strap is not as tightly bent (squished actually) as it was when the slide had been slid in. Here is a photo of the first bracket I made, I remade the bracket with more strap on the bottom part to allow me to drill another hole and use 2 small bolts to keep the strap level.

TV Bracket mount

For anyone with a 31RETS, and maybe other models, for a bedroom TV, do not mount a TV bracket on an outside wall. The interior surface is not suitable for that. Instead, we mounted our bracket on the Wardrobe wall, above the light switch, and used a 4 inch wide by 12 inch long, laminated 1 inch thick plywood backer board. The backer board is secured to the front of the shelf in the closet (through the rear) , and through the side vertical. The problem I encountered was the hollow space between the outer wardrobe wall, and the interior wall. This cavity in my case was about an inch deep, and ran the entire length of the wall. I solved it by drilling the mounting holes for the TV mount, and then inserting a tube from a LOW expansion can of foam, designed for around windows, and emptying the can into the dead space. After leaving it to cure ovenight, the wall was solid, and enabled me to mount the bracket with no floppiness. Hope this helps someone.

Normally there's a sticker on the wall if it will hold a tv and mount.
no sticker NO mount

Hello sabre sam !! once again I am impressed with the sabre product line. I was interested in the 32 bhts last fall but it looks like that unit is not available anymore????? The 34 tbok layout looks like a worthy replacement. Just wondering why the changes were made and any other info on the 34 tbok. Thank You!!

For the LG solid surface countertop option, is there any other color available except the black?
