Do I Need a Motorized TV Lift?
A Touchstone TV lift offers a clever alternative to traditional TV wall mounts, especially in a room with limited wall space. With versatile installation options, a Touchstone TV Lift can lower your flat screen TV or monitor from the ceiling or lift it up from the floor. You can install a Touchstone retractable TV lift just about anywhere – in a cabinet, behind a couch or credenza, in a waterproof, outdoor enclosure or in a half wall.
Why Are Touchstone TV Lifts Top Rated?
Since 2005, Touchstone Home Products has been a pioneer in advanced TV lift technology and manufacturing. We frequently hear from customers who are still using the first-generation Whisper Lift TV Lifts, almost two decades (and many TVs!) later. We’ve sold tens of thousands of Touchstone TV lifts, thanks to durable steel construction, extra-reliable motors and proven performance.
All Touchstone TV Lift Mechanisms offer:
- EASY INSTALLATION. The lift mechanism ships fully assembled – simply secure the base and attach the TV mounting brackets.
- COMPATIBLE WITH MOST TVS. Touchstone’s Universal Quick Connect System includes bolts and machine screws for most TV brands and models to ensure a secure fit.
- 5 YEAR WARRANTY. In 2005, we set out to make the best TV lift mechanism to use in our own homes. We remain focused on quality, and stand by our TV lifts with one of the best warranties in the industry.

Which Touchstone TV Lift Is Best For Me?
Much easier than shopping for a new TV, picking the right Touchstone TV lift simply comes down to three questions:
- How big is your TV?
- Where do you want to mount your TV?
- How much advanced technology do you need?
Check out our TV Lift Mechanism roster and see which model is best for you.
Go Big or Go Home
The Whisper Lift PRO XL and SRV 33900 PRO effortlessly do the heavy lifting for the biggest TV models. Both are available with manual Swivel technology. If you need a full 360-degree rotation, choose the SRV. The SRV model includes an RS232 port to connect to advanced home theater systems and automation systems.
Tight End MVP
For tight spots like motor home RV entertainment consoles, boats or slim profile cabinets, the 4-inch depth of the SRV PRO TV lift fits the bill.
The Low-Down on the Drop Down
A crowd pleaser, your guests will want to see the replay when your TV lowers from the ceiling. Choose the Whisper Lift II, PRO or PRO XL for versatile dropdown installation. Simply flip the same Whisper Lift and secure the base from the top for an impressive home theatre experience.
All the Right Moves
Expand your viewing area with a swivel TV lift mechanism. The Whisper Lift Swivel PRO and SRV PRO Swivel models feature manual swivel technology. The Whisper Lift Swivel model moves 60 degrees to the right or left. The SRV PRO Swivel moves in a full 360-degree rotation.
Technology Team Player
For seamless connectivity and smart TV compatibility, the Whisper Lift PRO and SRV PRO include an IR remote for easy third party universal remote pairing. The SRV PRO adds an RS232 port to connect with automation systems.
You Call the Plays
For Google Home and Amazon Alexa compatibility, choose the Whisper Lift PRO, PRO Swivel or PRO XL with a built-in 12v trigger port. Learn how to control the Whisper Lift PRO with voice commands.
The G.O.A.T (Greatest of all time)
For those looking for all-around performance, without anything fancy, the original Whisper Lift II scores big every time. If you don’t need an IR remote, RS232 connectivity or a 12v trigger port (or if you have no idea what those things are), the Whisper Lift II delivers the same heavy duty steel construction, whisper-quiet 24V motor and smooth operation as the Whisper Lift PRO without the extra technology.
