    The way i would design it for your tv,

    1st i would make it flush againt your tv but to give it protection i would use some of those little gel circles you get for example on a glass table they go between the actual table and the piece of glass. If you really dont know what i mean i will take a pic of one.

    Now for hooking it onto your TV, I would do similar to what have you done but make the brackets the width of the black border going down the side of your tv, paint them black then bolt it to the glass with black nuts and bolts using a washer aswell so the order threaded onto the bolt would be washer,glass,bracket and knut.
    But before screwing them all on screw one on to see if you have any excess screw sticking out, if so either use shorter bolts or measure and cut it down to give as much of a flush finish as possible.

    But before this you need to create the actual bracket, I would make this out of say one piece of steal bent in a upside down U shape to the width of your tv. The to finish off line the inside with felt to protect your tv.

    If your really clever you could bend the bracket in to make more of a clamp like a bulldog clip just to make sure its nice an tight.

    Hope that helps

    Hmmmmmmmm - I would not bother even getting it to touch the screen at all.

    Simply cut the plexiglass to the same size as the screen, drill two tiny holes in the top and then wire it with thin wire to two hooks in the ceiling. Adjust it so that the plexiglass hangs about an inch in front of the screen at the right height.

    This would look a whole lot cleaner, plus you simply "unhook" from the ceiling hooks when it's not needed. Although the plexiglass would be floating in front of the screen it would protect the TV well from a fast incoming remote.

    That's how I'd do it if I had to..........

    I didnt mean actually touching the screen it would be flush against the frame of the tv. If you look at most plsma of lcd the screen is actually set back slightly to the actual frame!

    I would suggest having the plexiglass anchoring on the wall instead of the TV, just my suggestion. Since, in my thinking, that when a flying Wiimote that is strong enough to break the new straps or slip out of someone's hand will be a large force and I wouldn't want my tv to take the blow. Good idea though and i might actually do that too.

    Why am I gay?

    For wanting to protect my TV from damage. You don't know what your talking about because the picture is crystal clear with no glare whatsoever.

    I can't always be there to be sure that people remember to wear their wrist straps.

    miiplaywii - not sure if you are a kid or a parent but sometimes kids forget to do what they are told, I rather waste the $18 I spent on the plexiglass than a $1500 new tv.
