Easy Installation Guide: Installing a TV on the wall! (No skills needed)

Updated: Dec 17, 2022



Introduction:


Installing a TV on the wall is an easy way to add style and sophistication to any room.

Not only does it look great, but it also frees up valuable floor space and helps eliminate clutter.

However, there are some important safety tips that you should follow when mounting your television.

Read on for some helpful advice on installing your TV safely and securely.



What is a stud?

Before placing a TV on the wall it will always be important to find a stud or check the wall's stability.

But finding studs may be difficult without knowing what it is they seek.

A splint or splint is a vertical spline commonly constructed with wood or metal used on a wall.

These wood and metal reinforcement units are evenly placed on walls and are commonly used as the framework on walls that consist of drywall.

Because most modern homes are built of wood and not mason it is possible that you can see studs on your walls.


Obviously, in higher buildings, the metal studs can come off.



Find the perfect TV position


After you have chosen the proper mount bracket for the television you will need the correct location and position it correctly.

Proper wall positioning should be essential for the wall-mounting of TVs.

It's quite difficult to change the TV position after it has been installed with the wall-mounted TV.

Find out where to start. It is located very centrally, where your seating in your lounge or your living room lets you comfortably watch films and TV.

Check whether the wall is accessible by an electrical outlet, cable or satellite.


Some notes on handling TVs


Tell me the guy who unpacked the TV sets personally.

Even smaller televisions could easily be handled by one individual, and anything over 40 cm should be lifted by two people.

Although the weight can be handled easily by anyone with a single hand, its size and form are extremely heavy and care is needed to avoid damage. Installing an empty TV takes away the joy.

When handling televisions, you should be careful to protect the display.

Large glass/polyester sheets naturally have elasticity but display technology generally does not.


The Right Tools For The Job

Before starting any project, it’s important to have the right tools handy.


You will need:

-drill

-screws

-wall anchors

-spirit level

-stud finder

-mounting bracket depending on what type of wall mount you select.

It is also important to make sure that all these tools are in working condition as this can go a long way in ensuring that your installation is successful.


Installing the Mount Bracket

Once you have all the necessary tools at hand, you can start installing the mount bracket itself.

Once you know where to place the bracket, use your drill and screws (or wall anchors) to secure it in place.

After that, use a spirit level to make sure that the bracket is perfectly straight before attaching your television set.


Attaching The Television Set


Finally, after all these steps are complete, it’s time to attach your television set to its newly mounted bracket!

Make sure that all screws are tightened correctly so that there will be no slips or falls while securing your TV in place.

If everything looks good then it's time for one final check!

Tilt your television set slightly forward and backwards making sure that it stays firmly in place without any wobble or movement once released - if this passes then congratulations!

You have successfully installed your TV onto its new wall mount!


Conclusion:

Installing a TV onto its wall mount may seem intimidating at first but with careful planning and preparation plus following some basic safety tips along the way – it is quite simple!

So don’t be afraid of taking on this task yourself - just make sure that you have all of the necessary tools at hand plus take extra caution while handling heavier objects like TVs
