About this creation
Please feel free to look over the images and skip the verbiage.

My wife wanted to cram the largest possible TV under this kitchen cupboard. So I headed off to the electronics store with tape measure in hand and came back with this lightweight 24-inch LED model.



Knowing that the TV would be ~12 mm too tall with the feet provided, Plan A was to set it directly on the counter, sans feet, and stabilize it from behind somehow.



But I hadn't figured on the speakers being on the bottom of the TV cabinet, and they needed at least 20 mm of counter clearance to make decent sound.

So the TV needed feet that would allow it to squeeze under the cupboard without giving up any more counter clearance than absolutely necessary.



These black 30.4x20 mm wheels (56145) offered secure footing, the right height, and a good visual fit.





Now the TV's stable, the sound's good, and the wife's happy. Technic to the rescue!

Quoting Sven ;o) A really cool solution my friend ;) Very well done.
Thanks, Sven! I keep hoping that putting LEGO to work around the house might lessen the flak about my LEGO spending, but it hasn't worked so far. "But, honey, what about all those shoes??" doesn't work, either.

Quoting Jacob Moon's Mocs So what's next in this Lego home renovation project...
Good one, Jacob! I have to pick my LEGO repair projects carefully, because the dog will chew any LEGO she can reach: http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/434872

Quoting Gabor Pauler Haha, this story reminds me when I made Z16 gears as setting knob of window vents, as the original mechanism was totally awkward. Good job!
Thanks, Gabor! Yes, replacing/improving things around the house without having to do any fabrication comes in handy.

Quoting Johan van der Pluijm Great! Why did you not put the tires on the wheels? I guess that would improve sturdiness and help with vibrations. Especially with speakers in the TV, there might be vibrations
Thanks, Johan! Tried tires, but here's the problem: At night, I need watch the TV with a wireless headset (on the left in the main photo) to avoid disturbing guests in a nearby bedroom. Unfortunately, this inexpensive TV has only one audio out for the headset transmitter -- a headphone jack that automatically cuts off the speakers when in use. Tires on the wheels made it too hard to slide the TV in and out in order to plug and unplug the transmitter. Besides, the Technic feet are sturdy enough without tires, and vibration isn't a problem.

Quoting Clayton Marchetti Very Creative! The black wheels are a great choice for the feet. Excellent work!
Very kind, Clayton! These particular wheels were the perfect height.
