To date, almost all apartmentsattaching separate small tv-set. This "fashion" has even reached private homes, where installation of plasma LCD TVs is also particularly common. However, whatever it is - flat or wide, the installation principle does not change during its installation. In both cases it is necessary to drill holes and install special brackets, on which the case will be fixed. In today's article, we'll tell you how to properly mount the bracket for the TV on the wall and which type is best to choose.
Even at the purchase stage,what type of device you want to purchase. There are bracket hook type (the TV is installed on special hooks) and stands with a swivel / tilt mechanism. As practice shows, the most convenient to use is the latter type. Therefore, if your budget is not severely limited (and such devices are an order of magnitude higher than hooked ones), get this mechanism.
Before installing the TV bracket with your own hands, we need to prepare a certain set of tools. You will need:
- A pencil or marker for marking lines on the wall surface;
- building level;
- Painting tape (if the wall of the kitchen is made of tiles);
- drills with a drill;
- a Phillips screwdriver or a screwdriver;
- a hammer.
How do I install the TV bracket with my own hands?
With all these tools, you can safelyproceed with installation. Before installing the TV bracket with your own hands, you need to choose the place where it will be located. Since there is practically no free space in the kitchen in many apartments, mount the bracket in one of the free corners of the room. After this, it is necessary to make a marking for fastening the fixing element. To do this, use the building level to select an even position and mark the vertical line with the marker. This is to ensure that in the future the TV was exactly on the device. If the installation of the mechanism is done incorrectly (that is, crooked), your TV may soon fall down. By the way, if you are going to do the very mechanism yourself, ask yourself how to make the bracket for the TV, pay attention to the level of tilting the holes you drilled. They should be placed at the same level with respect to each other.
After setting the measurements, compare the bracketexactly at the center of the line and mark 2 holes for subsequent drilling. After that, we take a drill in hand, install a drill (its diameter should correspond to the width of the holes made in the fastening mechanism) and make small holes to screw the screws into the wall. By the way, if the drill starts to "walk" on the surface (usually it happens with tiles), stick on it a building tape or tape. Next, we mount the dowels, hammer them with a hammer and screw the screws. In this case, the bracket for the TV must be hung by the "groove in the groove" method.
