Step-by-Step Guide on How to Install a Mounting Dream TV mount
Step 1: Disassemble the Wall Plate
The first thing you need to do is carefully disassemble the wall plate into two pieces and put them on the side for later use.
Step 2: Attach the TV Plate
Now check the VESA pattern and select the correct TV screws. Once you’ve identified the correct screws and VESA pattern, attach the TV plate to the back of the TV.
Step 3: Install the Screws
With the help of a screwdriver, carefully install the screws. Make sure that you install them tightly so that they can hold your TV into place.
Note: Do not use a drill to install the screws, it could damage your TV.
Step 4: Attach the Wall Plate to Your Wall
The next step is to attach your wall plate to your wall.
You can use this method to install your mount on a concrete wall or on solid concrete blocks.
Note: This method is not compatible for drywalls.
You can do this through two different methods:
Option 1: Concrete Wall
For a solid concrete wall, mark the VESA patterns on your wall and drill in a 2.5-inch hole with the help of a ⅜ inch power drill.
Then, hammer in studs into your wall and install bolts and then install your wall plate to the wall and install in the screws.
Option 2: Wood Stud Installation
With the help of a stud finder, locate the studs in your wall and mark the center point.
Then, with the help of a 7/32 inch drill, make a 2.5-inch hole in your wooden wall.
Attach the wall mount to your wooden wall and screw in the screws carefully.
Step 5: Check the Integrity
This step is really important. Conduct an integrity test to make sure that the screws are correctly placed in position.
If your wall mount is loose, you will be able to move it. In this case, it is a good idea to tighten the screws.
Step 6: Hang the Wall Plate
Now carefully screw in the TV wall plate and hang it to your wall. With the help of an allen wrench, tighten the screws carefully.
Step 7: Install Your TV
Carefully install your TV in place. We advise that you take some help from a friend to ensure safety.
Note: In this, you can adjust the leveling adjustment and the tilt of your TV. Once you’re satisfied, lock the position into place.
