Mounting your TV bracket is an important part of installing your new TV. In this article, Yi Leng Electrician will show you how to mount your TV bracket safely and easily.
Measure the distance from the wall to the TV
To mount your new TV to the wall, you’ll need to measure the distance between it and the wall, and determine how tall your TV is. You’ll also need to figure out how wide your mounting bracket needs to be in order to fit around it. Make sure both measurements are accurate before starting installation!
Choose the Right Mounting Bracket
Once you have measured the distances and heights of your TV, you’ll need to choose the right mounting bracket. There are a variety of mounting brackets to choose from, so it’s important that you find one that will fit your TV. The VESA mount and the NEMA-4 mount are two prominent mounting brackets. Make sure the mounting bracket you chose is compatible with your television.
Mark the spot on the wall where you will drill into
To mount your television bracket safely and easily, mark the spot on the wall where you will drill into with a pencil. Use a level to ensure that the bracket is mounted level across all four corners. To make sure your TV is sitting tight against the wall, use a stud finder to locate the nearest stud and then use a drill bit that is slightly smaller than the thickness of your mounting screws to make a pilot hole. Once you have drilled into the wall, insert your mounting screws through the pilot hole and screw them in place.
Drill into the wall at your marked spot
There are a few ways to drill into the wall to mount your television bracket. One is to use a hole saw. This is the easiest and most common way to do it, but it can be time-consuming and requires some skill. Another option is to use a drill bit that is specifically designed for mounting brackets. This method is quicker and easier, but can be less accurate. The final option is to use a screw gun. This method is fast but less precise, and sometimes requires special screws that are not always available in stores. whichever method you choose, make sure you take the time to measure and mark your wall beforehand so that you don’t end up drilling into something else accidentally!
Hang the bracket on the studs in your wall
When hanging your TV bracket on the studs in your wall, it is important to make sure that the screws go all the way into the wall and that there is no debris between the bracket and the screw. If there is any debris, use a drill bit to remove it before screwing in the screws. Once all of the screws are in, use a level to make sure that your TV bracket is level. Then you can proceed to install your mounting bracket, and install your TV.
What Type of TV is Suitable to be Mounted To Wall
Most people mount TVs to the wall using a mount that is inserted into the TV’s mounting holes. Wall mounts for TVs up to 55″ can be found at most big box retailers and many hardware stores. Most mounts for larger TVs (60- and 70-inch sizes) use screws that are inserted into the studs in a wall.
If your TV is too large or heavy to be mounted using a wall mount, you can buy an articulating arm from an electronics retailer or online. An articulating arm attaches directly to the back of your TV and allows you to pivot it up or down so that it’s level with the screen.
There are also bracket systems that attach to the back of your TV using VESA connections. These systems usually have four mounting points and allow you to mount your TV almost anywhere in your room.
Installing a TV bracket is not hard, but it does require some basic tools and some patience. By following these simple steps, you can install your new TV without any problems
