VESA Mounting Patterns Ensure Your TV or Computer Monitor Mount is a Perfect Fit

There are many great reasons to mount a flat-screen TV on a wall or elevate your monitor above the desk. You'll free up valuable space, improve sightlines and gain flexibility of viewing angles. But before you get out the drill and stud finder, you need to find a VESA mount that's compatible with your TV or monitor.

VESA mountMost TV and monitor manufacturers comply with a set of standards set by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) known as the Flat Display Mounting Interface (FDMI) or Mounting Interface Standard (MIS). VESA-compliant display mounts also follow these standards. This makes it easy to select a mount that accommodates your display and, even more importantly, will safely hold its size and weight.

What is a VESA Mount?

A VESA pattern refers to the configuration of the four mounting holes on the back of a flat panel TV or computer monitor. For example, in a 100 x 100 mm VESA pattern, the screw holes are arranged in a square 100 mm apart. Before you select a display mount, check the back of your display for the VESA mounting holes. If dimensions are not marked, check the specifications in your owner's manual or measure the distance between holes (center to center) to make sure you purchase a compatible mount. Many mounts accommodate a variety of VESA hole patterns, so you likely will be able to find a variety of models compatible with your display.

How do I find the VESA pattern on my TV or Monitor?

On the back of your TV or computer monitor, locate the four mounting holes. They will be in either a square or rectangular configuration.

Measure the distance between the holes. The table below shows inch equivalents for common VESA patterns.

In the example on the right, the distance between mounting holes is 400mm horizontal by 200mm vertical. The VESA size will be shown as 400×200.
