Step 1: Find the Stud and Mount

The first thing to do is find a secure location to hang the frame which can support the TV. For this, locate the studs. There's a variety of ways to locate the studs. One method is to locate an outlet in the floor, and it should measure more than 16 inches. That is an one. Another option is using an Stud finder. Stud finders are usually affordable, and as you take time to use it, it can do the job fairly well. When it tells you that you've discovered a stud, it is possible to find as unsophisticated an area as you can to put a nail in the wall to verify that you've actually located an one. If nothing else works and you are unable to hang the frame of your television in studs, you could use the toggles for drywall. Before you use toggles, be sure that they were designed to withstand all the load of the television and the frame combined, not just the frame but also the television. Additionally, ensure that the wall is able to support the weight. The frame's height should be in line with the center of the TV screen level with the eye as you stand in the front of it. If, for any reason, the studs don't sit aligned with the holes of the bracket, you can make holes for the bracket to be drilled again. It's usually not too difficult and is more effective than having studs that aren't there with bolts holding the frame in place to wall. The majority of mounting frames require four bolts which require drilling prior to. Be patient and do everything you can to make sure that things remain even, however if you are not quite level There will be fixes in the future. It's only for a little off-level!

Step 2: Run Wires Through The Wall

Once the frame is up then, place the wires on the wall. Be sure to check that the frame is securely hung. cables are approved for use within walls . If you aren't sure if their wiring is suitable forĀ TV installation or if they are aware that their wires aren't appropriate for use in wall, it is possible to purchase channels that are painted to run from the TV through the outlet. Another alternative is to ask someone to visit and set up an outlet that is new up to the wall behind the TV, so it is not visible.

Step 3: Placing Your TV on The Mount

Install the TV in the frame after the frame has been put in place. Most of the time, this is simple to accomplish, however you might need to align things and it is prudent to hire a professional. The thought of a television hitting someone or even breaking not something you want to think about. If the television isn't in a straight line, grab the upper side and press it down. Pretty ingenious, huh? If you put the frame into studs, this will provide you with a fraction of an inch, and could resolve your levelness issues. Another option could be loosening one of your frame's bolts to the back, or tighten the opposite side. If neither of these solutions result in a satisfactory outcome, you will need remove bolts and start the process over over again. This isn't fun therefore, you must proceed through the entire process slowly and in a careful method. It makes sense to put up the television. It's more space-saving as well as making it easier to view the TV when hanging, and it looks nice. If you're happy with the procedure you can put up your TV. You'll be pleased with the results.
