Can I use this TV mount for my 43" VIZIO?

All tv Brackets for Lcd based tv`s have the maximum size quoted it will support.
Because all tv`s of a set dimension weigh roughly the same amount in lbs.

And have a set amount of mounting screws on the plate or fixing calculated to take the weight.

The spacing also varies where the tv is fitted to the back plate provided on the bracket for the fixing of the lcd to it.

If you buy a bracket intended for a Lcd of a maximum size of 32" a 43".

Will rip the bracket straight off the wall as more fixing points or screw points are required.
And four holes on the plate to mount the 43" tv you intend to use will not fix to the bracket plate as the distance between the four mounting holes will be out by a inch or so louweed.

For a set tv size the spacing for the four mounting holes of the tv to the main palate differ.

You will not be able to mount the tv to the bracket no matter how hard you try.

You need to get a wall mount or bracket for a 42" lcd tv. if the case.

measure the distance of the four holes on the back plate to the ones on the back of the Lcd tv to check if the case.

It also depends on the type of wall you intend to fix the tv bracket too.

A solid brick wall with plugs will be ok.
But a studded wall if you do not locate the battens of it, and screw the mounting plate to them, the wall mount may just rip off the wall due to too much weight when trying to use a 43" tv for a bracket rated for a 32" lcd tv in weight.

why not? the TV takes 200mm x 200mm VESA and it only weighs 22 lbs.

The only way you are going to tell is if you measure the mounting holes on the back of the 43" set you have.
See if they are a fixed 200 mm in spacing.

Your next point of concern is what type of wall you intend to mount the wall bracket too.
If solid brick then fine.
But if a studded, or partition wall with a bracket rated for a 32" Tv and fitting a 43" tv it may rip the bracket of the wall due to the extra weight and lack of enough screw fixings for the wall.
