About Us

Dynamic Mounting is a small family-owned business dedicated to providing quality products to the customer, and let’s be honest, bringing in enough income so that I (Kurt Massey, Owner, Designer, Guy that answers emails) could quit my day job. I pride myself on the products because I created them and they are my babies, I have 3 real babies but my wife did most of the work on creating them (You can see my family and I in the video above). It makes me feel great that something I came up with is awesome enough for total strangers to pay for and enjoy. I have been selling the Down and Out TV Mount since August 2010. Dynamic Mounting is located in Mooresville, NC where the mounts get manufactured and assembled. For more information about where we get our parts from, see our Made in America section.

The Dynamic Mounting team currently consists of my mother who assembles the mounts; I couldn’t ask for a more competent and dedicated employee, I’m usually asking her to work less. My wife, who does quite a bit of assembly herself and various other tasks for the company all while watching the kids. I couldn’t ask for a better partner. Last but not least is myself (Kurt Massey), who designs the mounts, answers the emails, and all the various things that go with owning a small business.

How Dynamic Mounting Was Born

Our living room did not have a lot of options on where to mount the TV. The best place seemed to be over the fireplace because that was the focal point anyway. It looked good but the TV was too high to watch it comfortably. It was especially too high when I played video games. I used my experience to solve the problem by making the Down and Out Mount. The mount worked so well, and there were no solutions like it on the market, so I decided to sell it online myself. And with that Dynamic Mounting was born.

Our Experience

You might be wondering where I got the experience to design and manufacture a mount to move around your expensive TV. I graduated with honors from Michigan State University with my Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering in 2004. I was then hired by Electroimpact, a company that makes the tools and machines to assemble large airplane wings and other aircraft components. This is a great company where I designed a lot of different things, such as hydraulic/pneumatic clamps; lifting equipment that handled the top and bottom covers of large airplane wings; precision axes on large machines for drilling wings; and many other components. Here is a link to one of the machines I worked on.

Made in America

All the components in the mount are sourced from other small businesses within the USA. The custom steel parts, which are the bulk of the mount, are made by other small local businesses around Mooresville NC. See below to find out more about our suppliers. All of the finished parts come back to my shop where we assemble and ship out the mounts. I like getting my parts made in America for a few reasons.

First, because they are local I have better control over the quality of the products.
Second, my money is supporting the people and businesses that I trust and enjoy working with.
Third, I’m helping the community I live in by creating jobs and opportunities locally.

Made in America, and below I tell you exactly where.

Laser Dynamics, located in Mooresville North Carolina. Laser Dynamics laser cuts and bends all of the custom sheet metal parts, which is the bulk of the mount. They also keep on hand some sour patch kids for when I drop by.

REVIEWS

    AWESOME

    “We couldn’t be happier with the appearance or the way it operates. It’s a little bit overwhelming when you first receive it because it’s such a well-built mount, but if you just follow the directions it’s not difficult to install. A+”


    PERFECT PRODUCT

    “Kurt, I’m very impressed with your product, I’ve mounted it above a fireplace in an old English flat.
    Adding to the complexity; only half of my mount space is solid; but with a few dynobolts, it’s rock solid.”


    SUPER PRODUCT!!

    “LOVE this mount. Easy install and allows our 60″ to clear our 13″ mantel for optimum viewing! Also want to mention the OUTSTANDING customer service we received with this product!! Highly recommended!”

  •  

    DOWN AND OUT MOUNT WITH SWIVEL

    “Order process logical and efficient. Delivery trackable and quick. Packaged well and complete. Installation instructions were clear and concise. After preparing (drilling and placing lags) brick wall over fireplace mantle, the mount was attached to wall in 10 minutes.”


    EASY INSTALL

    “After looking at the diagram and determining our needs, the mount was easy! Just takes a bit of preplanning. Our 60 inch TV moves up and down over the fireplace mantle which is FANASTIC!”


    OUTSTANDING MOUNTS

    We just built a new home and had hired a Low Voltage Specialist to disegn our media system. They offered us wall mounts with a swivel & tilt, but they had nothing that would swivel, tilt and pull down.”

    ARRIVED QUICKLY, EASY INSTALLATION, GREAT RESULTS

    “Does exactly what expected. We were impressed with the hardware quality and ease of installation.”


    GREAT PRODUCT, WORKS AS EXPECTED

    “The Dynamic Mount works great and is everything that was advertised. The installation process went fairly smooth. We mounted the bracket above the brick fireplace. We decided to use extra masonary screws to be sure it was mounted securely.”


    BEST PRODUCT EVER.

     

    “First of all it arrived within 3 days. I had a professional A/V guy install the TV and speakers. This is all he does and he said it was by far the best mount he had ever used. It was easy to install, works exactly like they say.”
