TV wall brackets are available in different sizes and designs. Whether you want to mount your TV on a wall or stand on it, you get a variety of mounts. Let’s explore the types of mounts you can get for your TV.
Fully movable bracket
The full motion mount is the most popular mount in the TV mount world. Yes, we are not exaggerating. Indeed, this is the most preferred bracket used in large rooms, conference areas, and hotels. It enables you to position your TV according to your seating position. The extendable arm allows you to adjust the TV according to the viewer. It’s also best for corner mounting a TV.
A flat mount is a primary type of wall mount, an attachment that comes with most televisions. This device doesn’t take up a lot of wall space. However, a flat bracket does not allow flexibility or movement. It’s easy to install and a safe way to mount a TV on a stand.
Hook mount is more of an advanced version of flat mount. With this device, you can easily remove the TV from the bracket. Hook holder also helps with cleaning without any problems.
The tilt bracket allows the user to tilt the TV in either direction. You can adjust the angle of your viewing position. A tilt bracket is preferable for smaller televisions and LCDs
Mount a television on a stand
Before starting the process, you will need the following essential things that you have right now.
- A tape measure
- Mounting bracket
- drilling machine
The right position
Before you start drilling or measuring the bracket, you need to determine the location of the TV.
If this is your first time doing this, we recommend that you get a template of your TV and understand its positioning. Once you’ve made up your mind, it’s time to mark the area – an accurate mounting of a television on a stand.
Attach the bracket to the wall
The TV bracket is a bit confusing. However, you only need to focus on two parts – the wall mount and the other parts that fit directly onto your TV.
Take the screws out of the TV packaging and save them for later use. Place the TV bracket on the wall where you originally decided to position your TV and mark it again.
Tip: Check with a stud detector; whether your wall is safe to use or not.
Drill holes in the wall and insert the wall plugs. Take the bracket and place it over the holes. Now attach the bracket with the screws and tighten firmly. Make sure the screws are tightened securely or your TV will lie flat on the floor.
Attaching the TV bracket
The most basic part is placing your TV on the floor and checking the mounting holes. Check that the screws are tight and secure the TV securely to the bracket.
You can plug everything in after you’ve set up your TV, but plug everything in beforehand to avoid mishap. You need someone’s help when you lift the TV. Secure the main body and bracket with a screwdriver.
And you are done! Enjoy your favorite shows.
