Lift TV

This homemade dress perfectly reflects the modernity of our time. Imagine: you press the button on the remote control and the TV appears. They looked - they pressed the button - the TV hid. Of course, someone who boasts to friends, this piece has a number of practical qualities. Such as: the TV does not get dirty, fat does not settle on it, which is much in the kitchen. Actually, therefore I decided to make this design in my kitchen. -08 / 1503923856_1.jpg "style =" max-width: 100%; " alt="TV with a lifting mechanism">
The most expensive part of the whole construction is naturallylinear drive (Actuator). That is what it is called if you suddenly want to repeat this miracle. Linear drive or actuator can be found at the ALI EXPRESS at a quite normal price - HERE. As for everything else, everything is available in the hardware store or you can do it like me - disassemble the old cabinet and take out the guides from there.

Let's start!

To begin, measure the TV or your monitor, under which we will make the system of raising and lowering.Then you need to cut a rectangular hole in the bottom of your kitchen with a large margin so that it doesn’t touch anything when moving.

I have to say that this is the hole through which the monitor does not close in any way and is always open. I thought that it was not necessary. But if you want, you can make a kind of door on the spring, so that the monitor presses it at the exit and opens it.

Fix the guide rails

Now fix the slide rails. They need to be fixed strictly parallel to each other, otherwise there will not be an easy descent.

In the monitor or TV behind you need to attach the base, which will connect the guides and the body of the TV. I took a piece of plywood.

We try and drill holes for the guides andTV mount. It is also possible to base the hole for fastening the cable to this base.

Fixing the linear actuator

It came to fixing the linear actuator. It is mounted on the second floor of the locker and the cable lifts the whole structure.

Included with the drive was such a support. In principle, nothing more is needed. The drive just lies, fixed only on one side. Temporarily I will power the entire system from the battery.

Connecting the cable.

Naturally, instead of a rope, you can take any rope, but note that the rope has more resources,although the rope is enough for many years. It is only necessary to drill a hole and install a support so that the cable does not wipe the hole when moving. We skip everything and screw it up. If you use a rope, you can simply tie a knot.

Electronics for remote control.

The remote control mechanism is controlled by an electronic relay. I bought the electronic remote control relay also on Ali - HERE. Or you can see HERE. This remote control should provide a reverse drive. That is, change the polarity,so that the slides would rise and fall. You need to connect as follows.
circuit
We connect all the electrics and check. If necessary, adjust the length of the cable. If you are satisfied with everything, enjoy it. Now you will love your house even more for such an unusual functionality that will bring you comfort and joy of use every day.
