Getting a new huge diameter flat screen TV can be a fun time for any home owner however unfortunately, when you get it home you quickly understand that you do not have a spot to put it.  Many consumers face this difficulty, because they simply put down the scale of the set they have bought.  Thinking they can place it on an occasional table when they get home, they’re going to realize that the table they had in mind isn’t large enough to hold the TV safely.  This can potentially lead to catastrophes if you’re not careful, which is one of the finest reasons you should install a flat-panel wall mount.  

Prior to starting ripping into the project, you are going to need to make sure that all of your required parts were included in the kit.  Infrequently, when you purchase lower quality mounting kits you’ll end up with a box that does not have all that you need to end.  It’s way better to find this out up front, instead of when you’re a few hours into the project.  

Step one ) found the studs in your wall.  If you are not experienced with finding studs inside of the wall, you might need to get a cheap stud finder to help.  Mounting the bracket onto the studs is vital for safety.  Heavy TVs could rip the mounting bracket out of your drywall if it is not secured to the studs properly.  

Step 2 ) Mount the bracket to the wall.  Once you have marked the studs, and certified you’re going to be mounting to them, you’ll need to start attaching the wall side of the bracket.  Follow the manufacturer’s instructions, and use the advocated lag bolts, if they’re included.  

Step three ) Mount the flat panel wall mount bracket to your TV.  Now the bracket has been affixed to the wall, you’ll need to connect the remaining bracket to your television.  You want to ensure that you have attached the bracket properly, to avoid having your television land on the ground one day.  Apply sufficient pressure to the mount when you have installed it, to ensure that it will not move around once the TV has been mounted.  

Step four ) Mount the TV to the wall.  Get somebody to help you out thru this process.  Lifting the television set evenly, you will want to line up the notches on the TVs bracket, to the bracket that you have mounted to the wall.  It should fit much like hanging a picture on the wall, locking the 2 brackets together when it is installed properly.  Apply pressure to the head of the TV when it is on the wall, to ensure that it will not fall easily.
