Hanging your TV on the wall maximizes the viewing experience for home theater enthusiasts in a way that no stand can. Installing a TV wall mount is surprisingly not so difficult – as long as you have the right tools and a good partner. As flat-screen HDTVs have continued to be manufactured in lighter weights, they can be hung like paintings ready for use. Needless to say, there are still big mistakes that can be made so be sure not to cut corners when setting up your mount.
The first step to installing a TV wall mount is to select the type of mount you want. There’s some more basic, fixed models and then there are others that come with tilt, an arm, or pull-down mechanisms. PrimeCables currently has sales on key TV wall mounts ranging from heavy-duty tilting models for $19.99 to full-motion articulating TV wall mounts for up to 70” screens for $42.99, wall mount articulating arm for universal screens up to 55” for $24.99, and the more inexpensive PrimeCables’ angle-free tilt TV wall mount with safety lock for TVs ranging from 26” to 50” for $5.99.
Next, upon choosing what suits your home theater system best, ensure that you use only the equipment provided with your product by the manufacturer. This is not only the most economical choice for Canadian households but it’s the safest. From here, take a pencil and mark where you intend to put the mount on the wall. In order to do this accurately, you will need to find the studs in the wall. Depending on where the studs are, this is where it will be safest to set up your screws. The actual installation of the mount to the wall is relatively straightforward. After screws are set into the studs and the bracket has been appropriately fixed to where it needs to be, you now face the challenge of mounting the TV onto the bracket. Always use a friend for this step!
Before you call it a day on your TV wall mount installation, ensure the TV is safe and secure in its position. If you’ve done everything right, there shouldn’t be any issues. If the TV does not feel safe where it’s at, it may need to be removed and you may have to back up a few steps.
