Ernie, you gonna let us know if you got this resolved?

Of course! I don't want to raise your stress level, despite what your doctor says:



It is indeed a Peerless but I couldn't see the label on it while it was on the wall. I finally worked out that a 24" bitholder extension would do it, and, of course, I have one. So I was able to pop the locking screw out from beneath with a 5/32" allen bit. Still, seeing the screw was the hardest part of this.

When the damn thing was down in front of us we still coudln't figure out how to change the mounting angle... or it had to be changed when down from the wall because there are screws on both sides of the bracket that would have to be loosened and tightened. It wasn't worth more than 30 seconds.

We got the replacement up in about two minutes, then went through the tedium of updating it and the other 4 TVs in the room.

vwpower44, why would I buy an ST650? Why not the same model I already have? (Besides, now I know I have tools that will work for it.)
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Isn’t that Allen screw a security type that has a pin in the center of the head and requires a bit with a hole in it?

That one isn't. I wrote that I used a 5/32" allen wrench to remove them. That's what I used. I would have stated if they were security screws.

On the inside and outside of the part that attaches to the back of the TV, there ARE two security head screws. Part of the assembly blocks one of the security screws on each side.

I'm baffled. I just looked through the mounts at Peerless's site and the mount is not there. It looks very much like the ST650 or ST660 but none of the three mounts used in this place has the crank that's used to cinch the mount to a particular angle.

The mounts we have don't have anything to pull down to release, either. Baffling.

I think you have an old version of the 650. Originally they didn’t have pull down patches either. They used screws to secure the tv

I sent the photos to Peerless. They responded:
Please see the link for the STX650 . You manually adjust the tilt by holding the top and bottom middle of the display and firmly apply pressure .

I saw the link. That's it.

My guess is that trying to adjust the tilt of this mount would require breaking an OLED or other such REALLY skinny TV.
