Last night my wife and I mounted a 24" tv and swivel mount in our camper similar to this one


After installing everything we realized that the mount does not have any way to lock it in place so that when I am driving down the road the TV inst flying all over the place.

Do y'all have any ideas on how to keep the Tv secure against the wall or locked in place?

Thanks guys

ratchet straps?
How would I mount them to the wall?

My tv is where the tv in the picture is except it is on a swivel mount

is there anyway of tightening the joints? so its not as loose...
I thought of that earlier and I am going to try that, but then again I don't want it to tough on the screws in the wall because they are not in very deep.

That looks like a Forest River RV? Anyway, if the TV just swivels then shove a rubber door stop in the gap between the TV and the cabinet, problem solved.

Are you ever going to move the TV position?
yes because if you are sitting on the couch you cant see the tv, but now I can turn it towards the couch.

I have a 28ft avenger made by primtime but mine does not have a cabinet built around it, it is just a bare wall that it is mounted to

I think if you get a long, durable strip of quality Velcro you could run it under the mounting bracket and then secure the bracket to the cabinet, then you could wrap the Velcro around the TV during transport.

Thanks man thats a good idea, I was kind of thinking about that but you gave me the full mental picture. Thats probably what will try first. I think I have some good velcro at the house but its white, I'm sure black would look better.

Eh, color is not too important since when you are actually in the camper you will have it hidden behind the TV anyway.
