The first step towards mounting a curved television in your house is to gather the tools that you will need for this process. Some of the most important tools are;
- A drill machine which you will use to drill through the woods
- Marker for example; a pencil to mark the exact spot you will need to mount your bracket
- A measuring tape for measurement.
- A screw driver.
The first step towards the mounting process is to install the television wall mount onto the wall. It doesn’t matter what your wall is made of, whether concrete or wood, all will work out. If your wall is made of concrete, check out our shop for the best television bracket for both the wood and concrete walls.
On your concrete wall, hold the wall mount onto the wall and make marks where you will install the screws. Basically, the mount will have holes that you mark their exact point as it coincides with the wall. On the concrete wall, where you have marked the marks, drill six holes, or the number of marks you have made. At least, the holes should be 10 mm in diameter and a hole depth of 60 mm. after making the holes, fasten the mount onto the wall using the screws and washers on the drilled spots.
Assuming that your wall is made of wood, the steps are much similar but with a little modification. The first step is finding the studs on the wall, you don’t want to mount on a dry wall. After identifying the studs, mark the spots, it should be four marks on the wall. This is the spot where you will mount the bracket.
With the marks made on the wall, drill four holes on the marked spots and unlike the concrete wall, the holes for this case should be with a 5 mm diameter and a depth of 60 mm. after drilling the holes is to secure the TV wall mount to the wall using screws and washer taken from the package provided.
After securing the wall mount onto the wall, leaving it like that doesn’t bring an appealing look, to avoid that, you need to place a plastic cover over the mount to keep your wall in a neat state, covering all the screws on the wall plate and help the mount blend as part of the wall.
Attaching the mount plates on TV
Now that we’ve already fastened the wall mount on the wall, the next thing is to connect the wall mount on the television. Connect the mounting plats to the back of your television using four screws. This will very much depend on the VESA holes on the back of your television and washers. There are instances where you will find that the screws are too long for the mounting hole or a situation where there is an indention in the back of your television, the best thing to do is use the extension washers between the mounting plates and washers.
Hang the television on the wall plate
The best way to do is sliding the mounting rails on the mount plate and then move on the clip the two arms into the gear to secure the television on the mount. After mounting the television, you might find that the television might be at an unfavorable angle. This mostly happens when you have tightened the screw nuts, you need to allow the full functioning of your tilting function by loosening the screw nuts on the head of the tv plate.
Following these steps diligently will ensure that your curved television sits perfectly onto the wall. If you are unsure about this process or you need professional help, contact us today.
