Will my 50 inch TV fit on a 60-100 inch mount?

Reading that question it seems like the answer is "Duh, No" but I figured I'd query the hivemind. I came into a free wall mount for an LED TV. The mount is rated for VESA 600x900 and says 60-100 inches. My TV is 50- Will this mount work or do I need to get a new one?

OK, just guessing here, but I think the max size is determined by the TV weight, and the min size by the need to cover up the arm/wall bracket. So a smaller TV should fit, but maybe the bracket will be visible above or below the TV. The square metal plate that bolts to the back of the TV should fit though.

I suggest unpacking the mount and taking a look.

Response by poster: FWIW, the TV mount says it's VESA compatible at 200x200 and the TV website says it's good for a 200x200 mount.

Best answer: Then it'll fit. TV mount size ranges are a rough estimate based on weight and VESA; you want to ensure that the VESA rating for the two are compatible and that your TV doesn't weigh more than the mount is rated for. As long as those two are ok you're golden.

Response by poster: Follow Up: Everything worked out great! The VESA rating match-up was the key. The TV was 44' across and the mount was 40', so it's not like it sticks out or anything.

And now I have an excuse to get a bigger TV!
