TV Wall Mounting Instructions


Step 1: SELECT YOUR TV MOUNT

Standard TV mounts keep the television in a stationary position, flush against the wall. An adjustable swivel TV mount allows you to manually angle the TV once it’s mounted. Shop for them here!





Step 2: CHOOSE A LOCATION AND VIEWING HEIGHT

Cut out a sheet of paper or cardboard the approximate size of your TV and hang it on the wall in your desired location.

Affix to the wall with painter’s tape.

Test out that location from different locations around the room – make sure it’s centered and isn’t positioned so high that it strains your neck when you look at it. Shop for TVs here!




Step 3: LOCATE STUDS

Tip: Do not use hollow-wall anchors as they cannot support TV wall mount brackets.

Once you’ve picked an ideal location for the television, run the stud finder along the top of the paper.

Use a stud finder to locate the two studs in your wall that will support your TV.

Mark the location of each stud’s center with a pencil. Use a nail to confirm a stud has been located.




Step 4: MARK PILOT HOLES

Tip: Do not use hollow-wall anchors as they cannot support TV wall mount brackets.

Once you’ve picked an ideal location for the television, run the stud finder along the top of the paper.

Use a stud finder to locate the two studs in your wall that will support your TV.

Mark the location of each stud’s center with a pencil. Use a nail to confirm a stud has been located.


Step 5: POSITION WALL MOUNT

Hold the flat screen wall mount or TV mount brackets up against the wall and use a level to make sure it’s even.

Use a friend to help you hold the wall mount.

Tip: Remember the old adage, “mark twice, cut once.” That same rule applies to drilling in walls – check that the mounting holes are level twice before drilling.



Step 6: DRILL PILOT HOLES

Drill pilot holes into studs along where you’ve made the marks.


Step 7: ATTACH MOUNT TO WALL

This is the easiest part – simply have a friend hold the mount against the wall where you’ve drilled the pilot holes and drill screws to attach.

Check again that it’s level once mounted.

Tip: Drill in each screw halfway and check that they’re level before tightening all of them.


Step 8: ATTACH MOUNTING PLATE

Follow manufacturer’s instructions to attach the mounting plate to the back of the TV.


Step 9: MOUNT TV TO WALL

Follow manufacturer’s instructions to mount the TV to the wall.

Double-check that the connection between the wall plate and TV plate is secure.



Step 10: COVER CORDS (Optional)

After mounting a television, use a cord cover to hide the cables dangling from the bottom of the TV.
