To hang a flat screen TV on a wall, two types of mounts available in the market:
- Swivel mount
- Stationary mount
Procedure to Mount Your Flat Screen TV
Choose a position which will reduce the amount of glare reflecting from the screen. Make sure that the position will provide optimum viewing experience. Make sure that you have a plug point near the TV and all the wires can be easily connected.
Mark the drilling points in order to fix the mounting bracket. Using a spirit level, make sure that the bracket is parallel to the floor. Drill the holes carefully and ensure that you are drilling the wall and the studs that are right behind them. The number of holes depend on the size and weight of the TV and are mentioned in the mounting manual.
Locate holes on the TV posterior, that align with the TV mounting bracket or swivel mount. Using appropriate size bolts, attach the bracket, to the TV backside, using a screwdriver. With that your TV is ready for mounting.
Though this process sounds simple, one has to cautiously follow some precautions while mounting the set, like properly locating a stud or choosing the appropriate screws. Hence, it is always advisable to follow the manual. Proceed only if you are confident of pulling it off. Otherwise, let a professional handle it for you.
