TV with lifting mechanism

This homemade product 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, that's why I decided to make this design in my kitchen.

The most expensive part of the whole construction is natural.linear actuator (actuator). That is what it is called if you suddenly want to repeat this miracle. Linear drive or actuator can be found on 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 - to disassemble an unnecessary old cabinet and take 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 set with a large margin so that nothing moves when moving.

I will say at once that this is a hole through which the monitor leaves without closure and is always open. I thought it was not necessary. But if you want, you can make a kind of door on a spring so that the monitor presses it at the exit and it opens.

Fix the guides


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

In the monitor or TV in the back, 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 on and drill holes for guides and TV mount. It is also possible to base the hole for fastening the cable to this base.

Linear actuator mount


It came to fixing the linear actuator. It is fastened on the second floor of the locker and raises the whole structure by the cable.

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.

Naturally, instead of a rope you can take any rope, but keep in mind that the rope resource is more, although the rope here 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 are missing everything and pulling together the screw-bands. 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. The electronic remote control relay I also bought on Ali-HERE. Or you can see HERE.
This remote control should provide reverse drive. That is, to change the polarity, so that the slide would rise and fall.
Connect as follows.

We connect all the electrics and check.
If necessary, adjust the length of the cable. If everything suits - enjoy.
Now you will love your house more for such an untypical functional, which will daily give you comfort and joy of use.

If you have any questions - write in the comments, I will answer them with pleasure. Also I will be glad to your criticism and suggestions.
All the best.
