Not as flexible as it looks

by Andrew H, New Albany, Ohio, Apr 15, 2020

This arm isn't as flexible as it appears to be. The range of motion up and down is only about 30 degrees and the arm will not swing lower than the level of the mount. Without a counterweight on it, it is almost impossible to bend he arm to see the range of motion before installation. Made the mistake of mounting it too high.

Great ... easy to installed .

Convenient and saves space, good...!
