Ergotron Television Wall Mount Recall Issued Due to Injury Hazard

About 216,000 adjustable television wall mounts have been recalled, after the manufacturer received reports of the wall mount plate separating from the frame, posing a potential risk that televisions may fall off of the wall and cause consumer injuries or property damage.  

An Ergotron interactive wall mount recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on January 24, after at least three consumer reports indicated that the monitor plate that attaches to the television detached from the wall mount system, causing the devices to fall. Consumers have reported three incidents of property damage, but no injuries.

The affected interactive wall mounts have three key components. The wall mount plate allows for securing the system to the wall, an extendible and arm that allows the system to turn 180 degree, and a monitor plate that secures the system to the adjustable arm. The products may be hazardous because the monitor plate and the mounting ring may fail to secure the device to the adjustable arm allowing for the systems to fall.
