Why You Should Always Read The Instructions When Installing A TV Wall Mount

A lot can go wrong installing a TV wall mount. A surprising amount, actually. These horror stories highlight exactly why, when buying a mount, to always review the specs and to read the instructions before putting hammer-to-wall.

Didn’t Use A Stud Finder

There’s a reason they say to always use a stud finder. If you mount a TV on a bracket that isn’t affixed to any stud, it will tear the wall. You will end up with a long tear, not to mention a totally damaged flat-screen.

Stud Finder Was Broken

Sadly, we recently read an account of one person who did everything right and still somehow ended up seeing their mounts improperly installed. In this case, the stud finder was on the fritz. They didn’t quite have their screens mounted in the stud and, after a few days, their 43” 1080P television and everything else came collapsing to the ground.

Your TV Is Larger Than Your Mount Can Handle

Any full motion TV wall mount is only made for a certain sized screen. They have ranges. If your screen is too small or too big, it’s likely not going to connect. If it does, you’re still at risk of a collapse from the weight.

Your TV Is Heavier Than What Your Mount Can Handle

Yes, that’s right! Weight matters. Studs are tough. Mounts not so much if you buy a mount that doesn’t have the necessary might to hold up a heavy flat-screen.

Don’t Forget To Screw In All The Screws!

In one such case, one Canadian couple mounted their 32” 720P TV in their bedroom. A very lightweight and small screen, nothing to worry about they thought! Unfortunately, two of their screws weren’t adequately tightened. Months later, moving the TV outward on their full-motion mount, the screen came unglued from the bracket and came swinging towards the floor. Tough break.

The Bracket Is Not Correctly Mounted

It is imperative to make sure, once the bracket is screwed into the VESA holes, it is securely mounted into the wall apparatus. If it doesn’t feel safe, don’t move on assuming it is. Cheap mounts sometimes have this issue. It’s like fitting a square peg into a round hole. Don’t do it!

Trying To Do Things With Your Mount You Shouldn’t

Don’t try to modify your wall mount. Don’t try to repair it if it’s broken. Don’t try to use it as a full-motion mount when it is not designed to work like that. This will put your TV at risk. A guaranteed disaster waiting to happen.

What is the Correct Way to Mount A TV With A Wall Mount – Read here

A heavy-duty tilt, curve, and flat-panel TV wall mount is a clear, smart, and immersive way to watch media.

Lift your flat-screen. Make it flush with the wall. Secure it in place. Free up space in the room to make use of it how you see fit. Pretty straightforward but there are a few extra steps to take in mounting a TV.

There is a right way and a wrong way to do it. This is how you mount a TV the correct way.

Get the Right Type of TV Wall Mount

Every TV wall mount has limitations. Two in mind are weight and size. Don’t force a heavy flat-screen on a mount that isn’t ready to handle with it. Adhere to the weight range.

Know Your VESA Flat-Screen Standard

Also, regarding size, every TV has what are called VESA measurements. These are the mounting holes in the back of a flat-screen. Find out the VESA specifications for your flat-screen. They should match to your TV wall mount. If they do not match, you won’t be able to mount your screen.

Use Your TV Wall Mount As Intended

Don’t try to be unique with how you mount your TV. Your wall mount should be used as intended. Don’t be tilting a mount that doesn’t tilt or trying to move your flat-screen in unnatural ways. A person can end up ruining the safety and security built into the design.

Hide the TV Audio-Video Cables

When you mount a screen, you’ll have any device cables – i.e. HDMI – hanging down. Some home theater builders purchase a vertical channel in which they put their cables so that they aren’t totally unsightly. Minimum, tape them to the wall so that the cables are secured and not a risk.

Position Your TV At A Comfortable Height

Cut out some cardboard the size of your flat-screen. Position it in various places on the wall. Consider the different placements and what’s natural to you according to where you intend to sit. Most people will want to position their screens a little lower than they probably think.

Make Sure to Use the Studs

A tilting TV wall mount or any type of mount should be nailed into the studs in the wall. A stud finder can find the studs for you behind the plasterboard. A stud finder can also let you know where pipes and wiring are. This will help you avoid accidental damage as you drill into the wall.

Consider Your Speakers

Now that you have mounted your TV, if you want to take things to the next level, consider your speakers. Mounting your speakers on the wall works. In-wall speakers are also an option. A set of speaker stands are an alternative as well.

Once you have your TV wall mount, think about other ways you can heighten the appeal of your home theater system. Visit PrimeCables.ca today for more information.
