Hanging Your Television
Next, you need to mount your brackets. To do this, turn off the power to the area where you will be working. There will be two pieces to the brackets. One piece will go into the wall, and the other will attach to your television. Always use a stud finder that allows you to see the exact middle of the stud so you can be sure that you’re at the center of your wood studs. Mark this with a pencil.
Where you made the measurements for where the end of the bracket should be, line it up with your bracket so that the bottom of the bracket touches the mark. You should have a helper working with you so this can be their job. Drill a hole into the bracket’s screw hole and screw in the screws. Screw in the other bracket. Use the level to double-check that the brackets are even.
Next, remove the plastic caps from the back of the television. These cover the holes that you need to attach the brackets. Keep the flat screen television face up or lean it against a couch or other sturdy object. Never place it down face first. Screw in the brackets at the corresponding holes.
Now, follow the directions in the owner’s manual to verify that you are mounting the television correctly, especially if you’ve bought brackets that allow your television to swivel or move up and down. Have a helper assist you whenever you are handling the television or going up and down a ladder. And, then, enjoy!
