What is The Complete Method of Mounting a TV Mount?
Modern & smart televisions give a real home cinema feeling at home. The size of the TV set fits, but something that is still bothering you is the positioning of the TV. It will look much more elegant and presentable if the television is attached to the wall. A TV wall bracket is often an option for this.
The following guide gives you tips and tricks on what to look out for when installing a wall mount.
Does the wall support the bracket?
Almost every wall is suitable for a TV wall bracket, regardless of whether it is brick, stone, sand-lime brick, concrete, wood, or aerated concrete. Depending on the nature of the wall, different dowels are required, which have to be purchased before installation.
Due to the nature of the walls in older houses, it is usually not possible to drill holes and attach a wall bracket. However, drill-less wall mounts are available on the market for these situations. There is no need to drill into the wall.
Suitable tools & assembly material (dowels & screws):
Different dowels and screws are required depending on the nature of the wall. When choosing the dowels and screws, the nature of the wall and the weight of the bracket plus the weight of the television must be taken into account for a secure hold (high screw strength).
Before drilling, make sure that there are no water pipes or power lines at the targeted drilling locations. A circuit diagram of the electrical installation of the house or apartment shows where the individual lines for the electricity run. If this is not the case, a special measuring device can find the power lines quickly and safely.
Determine the exact position of the wall bracket:
The television is usually installed in the living room across from the couch, but what height is optimal and what else should you pay attention to is important in this case.
How mobile should the bracket be (rotatable, til table, swiveling, electric), what is the optimal seat distance between the television and the viewer, what is the VESA standard, what needs to be observed in the case of solar radiation and information on cable management.
Mark the drill holes:
If the positioning is fixed, many TV wall brackets come with a drilling template, which makes it easier to drill the holes. This is positioned at the desired location on the wall and the holes are drawn in. Use a spirit level to ensure that you have positioned the stencil optimally.
If you are not sure about possible power lines in the wall, take out the fuses before drilling and put a power distributor from another room.
Attach the TV wall bracket:
Almost all TV brackets have an assembly instruction at which systematically the assembly/mounting/installation of the wall bracket is explained. The wall bracket is usually screwed to the wall, the television is attached to a VESA adapter and the television and VESA adapter are then hooked and screwed into the bracket.
