Have you been admiring TV screens mounted on walls? You can also mount your TV on any of your walls. It’s may appear quite simple. However, you need to have the right materials and expertise to professionally mount a TV on a wall. If you lack either of these two, it is wise to consult a professional technician. If not well-mounted, your TV screen may fall off the wall, causing damage. However, if you are determined to do it yourself, here are some great tips to remember.
Get the right tools
Be well equipped with the right tools to use when installing a TV wall stand. Among the tools you’ll need are a level, pencil, tape measure, stud finder, screwdriver, drill and bits. These tools aid in positioning your TV in the perfect position for maximum visibility.
Find the stud and mount
The first step is finding the stud. This is the best place on your wall that can support your TV screen. There are several ways technicians use to find the stud. However, if you can’t easily find it, you can use a stud finder. This is an inexpensive device readily available. You can confirm that you indeed found the stud by poking a finishing nail through the wall. Before you go to the next step, make sure that the stud is capable of supporting both the weight of the mount frame and TV screen.
The next step is to mount your TV. The right position will depend on the size of your mount frame. Most types of TV mount are supported by four bolts, that should be drilled into the wall. However, make sure that you choose the right TV mount depending on the TV size and weight.
Run your wires through the wall
Avoid electronic device wires hanging down the walls or lying on the floor. Make sure that the cables are run in the wall. Your home, or office, will look more organised by eliminating cables on the floor. Most TV stands have a space that allows you to run your TV cables.
Place your TV on the mount
This is a simple task. However, you should carefully mount the TV on the frame to prevent it falling off. Once it’s in the right position, tighten all the bolts that hold your TV to the mount frame.
You no longer have to place your TV screen on a table. When doing a conference, you can ensure maximum visibility of the screen by mounting it on the wall. You can choose to place your TV on a tilt, fixed or ceiling TV mount.
