Cool Glue

OK now I get it, I looked around Google a bit and didn’t really come up with anything like your needing. Most of what I found, the TV was meant to just sit on the bracket. I was thinking more in the line of glue. Build your bracket in such a way as to have the bottom and side glued to the bracket. I built customized vans and trucks for a few years when I was younger. We used Elmer’s “Clear” rubberized silicone. Came in a caulk tube for use with a caulking gun. This stuff was fantastic! For instance, I did an experiment where I took two pieces of everyday 2x4 and glued them together, come Monday morning we tried to pull the two pieces apart (they were about 2 x 4 x 5) and we could not break them! Took a large screw driver and hammered in between the two pieces and after about 20 minutes of beating I finally got them apart but in pieces. We used this stuff to install our windows etc with. I used it to fix numerous things and have never been disappointed. But use Elmers only!
So I would glue them to the brackets and should you have to remove them a long piece of piano wire cuts right thru the silicone (with effort) just like removing a windshield. Screwing them to the brackets will of course work perfect too, I would recommend using “Carriage” bolts, flat headed bolts like on an auto bumper. As for clearance between the bolt head and the TV components you will just have to look and see what you can do. My opinion, glue them in at least say six to eight points and you should be good to go. I would think in the mobile situation you are in, bolts are going to crack the thin plastic of the set and fail quickly.
