A Roku Mount Keeps the Box from Falling Behind the TV

I have been a Roku user since the first generation from 2008.  Since then, I have owned a few other Roku models.  The boxes got smaller, the cables remained heavier and the box constantly fell behind the TV due to the weight of the cables and lightness of the redesigned box.  I recently discovered a Roku mount for keeping these in place.  I wish I would have discovered these sooner.

I live in New Jersey and they require plates at the front and rear of the vehicle.  The absence of mounting holes at the bottom of the license plate lead to two problems.  I should mention the issue is also present on my 2014 Kia Sorento. First, the license plate at the front of … Read more
