Mount a TV

January 31 2013

Mounting a television can be a daunting project, but we'll give you the know how.

Pick your mount

Your mount is dependent on your television. Find a mount that would fit your television in size and weight. Your next choice is to decide what kind of mount you want. There are several options including articulating arms that let you pull your TV away from the wall and tilt it at various angles. There are also low-profile mounts like the one we installed. The low-profile mounts don't allow you to tilt your television, but they keep the television very close to the wall to keep everything nice and neat. It's your call.

Mounting your television

The best way to mount your television is to mount it to the studs in your walls. Studs are normally 16-inches apart on load bearing walls. On non-load bearing walls, they can be as far apart as 24 inches.

Use a studfinder to find the studs in your walls. More expensive studfinders will also warn you if there is AC power behind the drywall. That way you'll avoid disaster.

Once you find your studs, mark them. The mount we used was in two pieces - the mounting plate and the mounting brackets. Take the mounting plate and line it up with the studs. Level the plate and mark off where the plate matches the studs. From there, you can drill pilot holes for your lag bolts.

The lag bolts will hold the mounting plate to the wall. These are beefy bolts, so you'll want to make sure you're going into the stud.

Attach the mounting arms to the television. This is relatively straight forward. Four bolts will attach the two brackets to the television. Be careful not to overtighten.

Once the brackets are attached to the TV, attach whatever cables you'd like to your TV. Your HDMI cables, audio, and others since it may be hard to connect your cables once the TV is up on the wall.

Now grab a buddy. This next part is definitely a two-person job. Pick up the television and place it on the plate. Then secure it with either the securing screws (or in our case the securing lever).

And there you have it. A television on a wall. If we can do it, so can you!

Special thanks to Sarah Lane, Jeff Stewart, and Chad Johnson for their help on the show.

Hi Iyaz

Watched the show thought this would be of interest. This is $10.00 software for iPad, really very good. Controlled via bluetooth keyboard or remote.

You can also plug iPad into HDMI monitor(via adapter) of any size and use iPad as controller.

Cheers
