It’s always important to do your research, and take all the proper precautions before you get started to avoid extensive damage to your wall,TV, and personal safety. Don’t risk a disaster - learn how to install a TV without damaging the wall in this simple, step-by-step guide.
Before you decide to mount your TV, it’s important to note the weight of your TV itself, as well as how much weight your walls, and the TV bracket you use with installation, can bear.
Some TVs can weigh 100 pounds or more, and if you don’t locate a stud on your desired wall that can support that weight, your TV could end up falling down. You’ll need to find a wall and a TV bracket that will support your TV’s full weight.
You should decide right away where you’d like the TV mounted on the wall (i.e. centered, in a corner, etc.). Typically, the TV should be at your eye level, so also think about from what point in the room you’ll be watching, such as your couch or bed.
It’s also important to consider what type of wall you’ll be dealing with before you get started. Brick and cement walls tend to be the most sturdy, but they can also be the most challenging to install a TV on.
Choosing a Bracket
You’ll need to make sure that the bracket will for your TV, and be able to support its full weight - you can check its box and specifications for full details on this. The most popular bracket styles are fixed, tilting, full motion, and corner TV mounts, and to help you select one, check out our in-depth trident-gaming.net post on which type of TV mount to use.
Measure it Out
This should help you stay on target, and place your TV exactly where you want it. You can also use a leveler when laying the tape down, to ensure that it’ll be nice and even when it’s installed.
Using a Stud Finder
If you don’t have a stud finder, you can always use a magnet instead. Then, based on the stud’s location inside the wall, use your pencil to mark where the screws to hold up the TV bracket should go, and where your bracket should attach to the stud beneath the wall.
Installing theBracket on the Wall
You should also use a leveler to make sure that the bracket is even, and level with the ground, so that your TV won’t look crooked once it’s installed. Once you have the holes ready, hold the bracket against the wall, and drill the screws in tightly, so that they hold in place.
Lifting the TV
Then, screw the mount onto the back of the TV with the screws and screwdriver, to ensure that it’s secure. Depending on the type of mount, there may be a few places to tighten and adjust the screws before you’re finished, so check them all to be sure.
Once you’re done, take a step back and make sure that the TV looks as secure and even as possible. Because you’ve taken all the proper precautions and used a mount and stud that will support your TV’s full weight, you’ll be good to go with that beautifully installed TV, completely damage-free.
