DIY LCD monitor flush wall mount

After moving my monitors around on the office desk to make way for some new kit, I found that the best place would be if one of the screens was fitted flush against one of the brick walls in the office.

I made this VESA compatible monitor mount from a single piece of aluminum plate after seeing the commercial ones have a much larger standoff than I needed.

Materials Used: 1 x 120 x 120 x 6mm aluminum plate
2 x 4" screws (countersunk)
2 x brown wall plugs

The plate was cut to be 120mm square and then four holes drilled at 100mm centers.

In the middle of the plate I milled two keyways to allow the plate to be fixed to the wall on two screws.

I really like the simplicity of this idea. Seems like it would be a great mount, and I can't imagine how any other mount might be thinner. My only worry would be if it was bumped and came up off the screws. I wonder if there's a way to incorporate a lock.
