1. First and Foremost I want to tell everyone to rest assured that I am the sole author and owner of the intellectual property rights thereto; The only reason that I, Myself would ever attach this particular mount to my ceiling would be, ONLY if my bed was moved back on my green wall again. We all know that this will influence strange electrical behavior, The angles of watching a black & White TV would be askew, Which may also cause short people to be mad at Randy Newman all over again (If you know what I'm talking about He He) If you really want to save money, I would suggest that you stop s;pending it. You can always watch free cable TV in the emergency room, Therefore eliminating the need to ask if this can be mounted to the ceiling all together .... Per se, We all know that this Will cause too much stress on the pivot points depending if your TV is a 25" or 26" Console With AM/Fm Sterophonic sound, Also the needle on your record player may not stay attached to your 78's or even your 45's for that matter. I have read my Curtis Mathis owners manual and on page 23 after the section about cleaning the heads of your 8 track player it says you SHOULDN'T, I'll repeat myself, SHOULD NOT mount any brand of Victrollas, Especially RCA model 26str45-78 from the ceiling or you will void your warranty. So without going into too much High Tech detail, I would have to say no... At least No for using THIS mount for the ceiling, Especially if your intent was to MOUNT your TV differently as you stated.... I hope this was helpful. The only reason I know all this because my girlfriends brother was dating a woman who actually knew someone who owned a TV like yours.... So I'm pretty sure this is the best advice you can get from a dedicated Walmart shopper, Such as myself, per se Merry Holidays, & Happy Christmas !
2. YES, But the arm is only 9" so you need a very small TV.
3. would put a lot of strain on the bracket and finding a stud where you need it in the ceiling might be a problem.
4. wont work on ceiling unless you want TV to be faced down. the angles don't allow for tv to point in too many directions
5. This could be used only as a ceiling mount over a bed or something if it was securely attached. The product itself is rugged enough. However the resulting mount would need to be nearly parallel to the floor/ ceiling. This only adjusts maybe 30 degrees, so mounting to the ceiling and then watching while seated on a couch would not be possible. If used overhead, use appropriate locktite and safety cables.
6. IF THAT IS YOU PREFERENCE YOU CAN MOUNT IT WHERE YOU LIKE.
7. Probably not because the piece holding the TV doesn't articulate that much. Only a few degrees.
8. you could. but the tv will not rotate to make the tv perpendicular with the floor. so you'd need to be laying of the floor to see it. also, not sure if, over time, the tv would fall off the mounting screws.
9. I would not recommend it. This is a good mount but it is small. The plate is only 10"
10. I think it can be used as a ceiling mount as long as it's installed into a stud. It is so secure in the wall that I will probably have difficulty removing it if I ever decide to.
11. No, length of arm might make viewing somewhat difficult.
12. My only answer to your question would be to try it, but it only has a total of 20 degrees of angle adjustment.
13. I would not recommend this, there is not enough tension in the Swivel Arm to hold it in place for Over-Head/Ceiling Mounting.
14. No. It has to be mounted on a vertical surface because there is no tension adjustment for the swivel. It just uses gravity to keep the TV in place when it is swiveling.
