Swivel TV Question

I have a 2016 BHS that has the "swivel" tv which you can alternate between the living area and the bedroom. I noticed the top portion hole where the pole goes through the cabinet to swivel, the hole is noticeably larger than the swivel mechanism. The tv bounces from left to right a lot, it seems too lose. Is there any way to tighten this? Looks like I may need to take apart the top part of the cabinet to get to it? I should mention that I installed a 3/4" plywood and a rather heavy mount.

Would like some input if the diameter of the top hole on other units is larger then the pole. I'm wondering if this was a build mistake. I don't see any reason why this would be drilled larger creating so much "play."

Looks like wires next to the swivel? Second hole for them?

Negative, wires come from the bottom of the swivel. This is the top.

I had the same problem. I took a flat piece of metal, drill it only slightly bigger than the peg that sits in the existing whole and attached it over the existing whole. Making sure it's centred so the swivel rotates evenly around. Made it much better but I had to adjust the holes where the hasps close to lock it in place.

Great idea, but how did you get the swivel out from inside the cabinet area so you were able to mount the metal plate?

If you reach up behind the TV you can pull the cable down to release it from the swivel. Then you can unscrew the peg fro the inside of the top of the tv mount. Then tilt the wood swivel out and pull up. Set it down for a bit, you'll have to disconnect the wires or get someone to hold it up. Then do the reverse to out it back together. I hope that helps. I'm not the greatest explainer... good luck!

Didn't realize there was a cable for that? I put plywood up against the original backer and did not see a cable. So it must be coming from underneath? I didnt have a factory installed tv. Is yours a 2016?

That prob didn't make sense, but I dont recall seeing a peg inside the tv cabinet, just a black backer. I now have plywood glue and drilled to that, so I obviously don't have access to the backer. Hopefully someone with a 2015 or 2016 can advise how to take this think apart.
