Can an LCD wall mount stay in the extended position?

Question by laptutran: Can a LCD wall mount stay in the extended position?
I want to mount my 52″ LCD that weighs 60 lbs on one of those wall mounts that can extend up to 26 inches. Can the wall mount stay in an extended position of 24 inches?
I have a TV alcove that is made for a tube TV so I want to install the wall mount in the back of the alcove and extend the arm out 24 inches to clear the alcove, then mount the LCD on the arm.
I’m worried that the extending feature is merely meant for easy adjustment of rear panel items and not meant to be used in this manner.
