They are also given the freedom to tilt down, up and to also push back up against the wall anyway they wish. This type of TV wall mount, is perfect for corner fittings; they are also perfect for installing into old cabinets that were constructed to house a CRT TV. This designs are more expensive, more difficult to fit  and they can protrude from the wall for about 30 inches or more, while the inexpensive full motion TV wall mount can protrude for say 10 inches.

2. TILTING

3. LOW PROFILE
A low profile TV wall mount is used when one wants the TV to stay pinned to the wall. This type of TV wall mount neither tilts nor swivels, they are the cheapest types of TV wall mounts in the market but their disadvantage most times is that they backup so close to the wall that their cables wont sometimes plug in. Spacers are in most cases required to install it  so that the TV can sit some few inches away from the wall. Tilting TV wall mounts are basically recommended to install over low profile designs, but cables might in some case make the TV tilt up a little.
