Installing Television Wall Mounts

By Brian Pennal

Wide screen flat panel TV’s are light in weight and thin making for easy wall mounting using a Television Wall Mount. The idea of mounting a TV on the wall like a picture was not possible with the old CRT form of television.

One real advantage of a television wall mount is the saving of floor space and the opportunity to clean up the tangle of wires that seems to accumulate behind floor mounted TV’s

Choosing wall mounts and TV’s that are VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) compliant will ensure that your TV and Television Wall Mount will be compatible.

The first thing to do once you have determined that you want to mount your tv on the wall is to decide exactly where it is to fit and to ensure that the wall suitable for mounting the size and weight of TV that you are considering purchasing. Make sure that there is enough room and that the wall is strong enough.

You need to know and understand what is inside and behind the wall and to know and understand the relevant building codes applying in your situation before you purchase a suitable wall mount.

Having cleared up any lack of knowledge in these areas and having settled on where and how you will mount the Television; and having purchased suitable TV brackets, you need to sit and study the manual that should have come with the television wall mount.

Anyone with some moderate handy man skills can fit a wall mount, and the first thing to do is gather together the tools you may need such as a drill, various bits, some screw drivers and appropriate wrenches and of course a spirit level to ensure the TV is mounted level.

If you wish to hide the cables behind the wall then getting the electrician that you use to install any power sockets required for the TV to also fit the required TV cables is a good idea,

The process of mounting the TV will be fully outlined in the mounting Bracket instructions but basically the steps are as follows.

A. Decide on the TV mounting position, ensure that there is a suitable power point within reach (add to this hiding the cables by a professional electrician).

B. Attaching the mount to the television

C. Marking the mounting holes for the wall mount using a template and ensuring the mounting is level. Attach the mount to the wall

D. Make sure you have all the cables positioned for connecting to the TV.

E. Hanging the television on the wall.

A good idea is to have some friends on hand when it comes to attaching the TV to the wall since even the lightest flat panel TV can get a little heavy and need to be held steady while attaching to the television wall mount.
