Step-by-Step Guide on How to Install Your Dynex TV Wall Mount
Step 1: Determine the Shape of Your TV
There are three main types of TVs you will have to work with.
- Irregular television
- Regular or the flat-screen television
- Obstructed or curved back television
Step 2: Lay Down the Brackets
Once you have identified the type of TV you are working with, lay your TV down on a clean surface and vertically insert the brackets.
Step 3: Align the Screw Holes
Once you place the brackets at the back of your TV, align the holes and screw them in place.
Flat Back: For a flat back TV, you do not need spacers to assemble the mount. All you need to do is lay the brackets against the back of your TV.
Obstructed Back: In this case, you will notice that the brackets block the jack, this means you will need spacers whilst you assemble your wall mount.
Irregular Back: Since there is a gap between the bracket and the back of your TV you will need a spacer to assemble the mount.
Step 4: Install the Hardware
Remove the brackets and insert the required hardware to the back of your TV.
Step 5: Attach the Plastic Covers
Once you align the plastic covers, attach them to the back of your TV with the help of appropriate hardware and screw them in place.
Step 6: Determine the location
Pick the appropriate height and location for your mount. You can do this by measuring the distance from the floor to the required height, where you want your mount to be installed.
Step 7: Install a Concrete Block Wall
To prevent any damages, drill into the mortar between the block and align your TV with the mount.
Step 8: Install Your TV
Safely pick up your TV and secure it in place. With the help of an Allen wrench, screw everything in place.
You might need a friend to assist you in this step to avoid any inconvenience.
We would highly suggest that you read the manual so that you do not miss out on any details.
Moreover, the manual will help you understand the type of hardware you need for your specific TV mount.
