Let’s Talk TV Mounting Systems

Let’s talk TV mounting systems. In my opinion the easiest TV mounting systems to use are the standard flat brackets. Very simple. Two pieces. One piece mounts to the wall, and the other to the back of the TV. Once these two pieces are put into place, you simply snap them together, and this results in a beautiful display.

Most of the bolt hole patterns on the back of TV’s these days are standard. Meaning they are all the same. The exception being that some 26 inch units are not compatible with brackets that fit 17 to 26 inch TV’s. A move up to larger size bracket might be needed. Be aware of this and always check the hole sizes before you make a purchase.

When shopping for mounting brackets remember to match the LCD TV bracket to the weight of the television. Today’s TV’s have steel framing or backing on the inside that will allow your television adequate support when attached to the wall bracket.

If you are unable to find your TV’s owners manual, consider checking the manufacturers site. Most of the time you will be able to find an online version of the owners manual that will have all the information you need about mounting your TV. You can also look at the back of the set. Look for 4 screw holes. You will see metal posts inside the holes., these are attached to a structure within the TV. These are the holes you will use for mounting.

Most TV mounting bracket system kits will come with several different types and sizes of screws. Different lengths, diameters with spacers included.

Before you jump in, read the owners manual. It will contain helpful information for mounting the television to the wall. Make sure you purchase a TV mounting bracket system that will fit the size of your television and hold the weight as well. If you are the handyman type, hanging the television yourself should not be a problem. Just make sure you plan ahead so that the installation goes smoothly.
