Z-clips. They are used in woodworking to mount panels and whatnot. They are incredibly strong. They aren't really visible either. Plus a lot cheaper than a vesa mount. Here is a link http://www.orangealuminum.com/panel-clips.html

Mine is nothing fancy at all! It's a um, well, two by four. But I did paint it black to make it look nicer (but all that bling from the others makes me feel a little embarassed by my redneck two by four and Office Max stand).

All you are missing is the duct tape!

Oh, no, there is duct tape on that brewstand, I promise!


And I paid a LOT of money for those fancy lawnmower wheels- they were like $8 a set- so it's not like I'm cheap. (Ok, yes, I am. I'm cheap and my stand sucks).

Edit- I have replaced my cooler MLT with a tippy dump keg but the CP is exactly the same. I didn't change where/how the CP is attached to the stand, and I wanted the smaller footprint.

Oh, it's just been an ongoing project for a few yeas ago I started back when I saw kals design. Still not operational. Specs: 1.5bbl finished product (there is a stand-alone glycol jacketed fermenter you might see in the back ground), three compartment tank (mash tun up on top, water tank in the middle, and a glycol reservoir with cooling unit on the bottom). Nearly complete with this unit, but need to design a boil kettle still before I can get brewing. I have a 7 month old son now so things aren't moving with the same momentum with this, but all of those other builds look great to me. Kals was what inspired me to build this guy. Let me know if you want more info on the 4" triclamp assembly. Pretty simple, just using the 4" tube as a conduit run for the wires. I thought it would be cool to have the project box removable from the rig, but it's so heavy that I wish I had it all just welded together now...

The ones I have built use a pivoting arm mount.

Yeah the z clips are great for a lot of things. They are strong enough to hold up tvs too.
