MantleMount : Perfect Viewing Pleasure
While few would describe relaxing at the end of the day in front of a nice, flat screen tv as painful, extended viewing of a badly placed screen can turn into a very literal pain in the neck – not to mention losing out on crisp visual effects because of glare or a bad viewing angle. Needless to say, these difficulties diminish view pleasure, no matter how good the technology might be.
That’s why Brian went out to his garage and spent a bunch of his own personal time to build Mantle Mount. Mantle Mount is the perfect solution for mounting large, flat screen tvs. The primary unit fastens securely to wall studs, and has a decorative cover that can be painted the same color as your wall. A mechanical arm is then placed in the pre-constructed mounting slot, and finally your TV is securely fastened to the end of this industrial strength holder. Once everything is in place, the plasma TV can be positioned attractively on the wall for times when it is not in use. Viewers can easily pull it down to eye-level and angle it for the perfect viewing position. No more strains necks, no more glare – just quiet enjoyment.
Brian and his wife invest their savings in the initial run of 100 prototypes. They sold out so fast they had to turn customers away. That was when he brought in a partner, Dan Hughes. Dan has the marketing expertise to help Brian make the most of his abilities as an inventor. Their Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for Mantle Mount already has 298 backers, and has met its initial goal of $25,000. However, the more money that comes in, the more fantastic ideas these two entrepreneurs can realize – imagine positioning your TV without ever leaving your comfy chair, for example. Besides, contributing to this Kickstarter gives you a super discount on a Mantle Mount unit for your own home — $229 for a single unit.
The MantleMount isn’t the only thing Brian and Dan have for you as an reward. If your budget just doesn’t run to an extra $229, you can still back this great product and get some fun stuff – cups, t-shirts that say “I’ve been MantleMounted,” and even baseball hats. The real prize, of course is the bargain prices on this great product that normally retails for $389.00 per unit.
The risk to you is low. MantleMount is already in production, and has many satisfied customers. It includes safety features, such as heat sensing handles that will let you know if the temperature above your fireplace is exceeding safe limits. It comes with accessories to help you hook up your TV, and with clearly written instructions.
Stretch goals for the project include turning out more MantleMounts and allowing Brian to quit his day job, hire staff and develop MantleMount into a fulltime business. Other ideas for stretch goals is to have a bigger warehouse, tool up for mass production and develop refinements for an already great product.
