TV wall mounts buying advice; TV wall mounts installation guide; recommended TV wall mounts
TV wall mounts are becoming ever more popular because the design of television has changed. This has meant mounting has become a much more exercised practise. Gone are the days when television sets were bulky with backs awkward for mounting. Nowadays, television sets are slim-line making them perfect for mounting. Many people are daunted by the prospect of mounting their TV, partly because plasmas are expensive and partly because they think mounting a complex job. Well, we’re here to explain that mounting is the simplest of tasks. Mounting can be expensive if you pay for installation services and buy a mount from a bricks and mortar online shop, but with a little extra effort you can find a good quality mount online for less and go about mounting it yourself saving you lots of cash.
Before mounting, you need a TV mount, which is the device used for mounting and is made up of two parts. There is a plate that is attached to the wall during mounting and there is also part that is made up of a clamp and two bars which makes mounting possible by attach the mount to the TV. Attaching these two separate parts together gets your TV ready mounting.
Some people say they find mounting tricky, but mounting only requires basic DIY skills and a drill. Mounting is made much easier if you have simple to use installation guides, so before considering mounting, make sure you buy a bracket that comes with good mounting instructions. Good mounting instructions will be the difference between a mounting job enjoyed, and a mounting job failed.
Naturally, some mounts are better for mounting then others, especially if you are an amateur. Before mounting it’s worth considering posting a question in a forum about a bracket you are thinking about mounting to get people’s feedback on how suitable it for mounting from a beginner perspective. TV mounts are sized in relation to television screen sizes, thus wall mounts start from around 17 inches and go up to 50 inches plus. Each TV mount can hold the amount of weight it was designed to hold, so make sure you don’t exceed this. Even if you have surpassed yourself when it comes to mounting, your TV may come crashing down if your TV is to heavy for the mount you bought, but don’t worry, all reputable retailers would advertise clear guidelines for every mount so it is easy to check this out before buying and mounting.
You may want to consider what you want your mount to do before buying or mounting. Before looking to buy a mount, think about where you want your TV to go because this will influence mounting. You may want your TV in a corner which will require a certain type of bracket, or you may want it to be stationary, but you need to decide this before mounting your bracket, as once its up, ideally you don’t want to go through the mounting process again, even if you found mounting to be a simple and enthralling task!
Once you’ve bought your bracket and you’re ready to begin mounting, all you need is a drill. But before you get cracking mounting, make sure you’re certain that there are no pipes or wires lurking beneath the wall you’re about to start mounting, otherwise you might get a nasty shock, literally.
And now you’re ready to begin mounting. Follow the step-by-step mounting instructions that should have come with the bracket you’ve selected and take the mounting job slowly. For any mounting job a spirit level is also a useful tool otherwise you might finish mounting your TV only to discover it’s at an angle, in which case you’d have to begin the mounting process all over again.
Once you’ve completed your first mounting job, you’ll realise just how simple it is, and you might consider buying new plasmas for the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen so can go about mounting four times over. Or perhaps your husband or wife might notice your newfound penchant for mounting and get you mounting shelves in the garage or mounting cabinets in the kitchen!
