Remember to read through the manual and this guide just to be sure that you do not miss out on any vital steps.
Feel free to use this guide as an instruction manual for when you install your TV.
Step 1: Gather All the Tools In One Place
The first thing you need to do is gather all the tools and hardware that you will need in one place. This will prevent you from the hassle of looking for them whilst you install your Roku TV.
Step 2: Identify the Height
Locate and mark the exact height of where you want to install your TV mount. Remember to mark too high or too low, otherwise, it could give you severe backaches or neck strains.
Step 3: Locate the Studs
With the help of a stud finder, locate the studs.
Step 4: Mark the Center
Once you’ve identified the exact locations of the studs, mark the center by drawing vertical lines with the help of a marker or a pencil.
Note: Ensure that you locate the exact position of the studs so you can drill in the right place.
Step 5: Drill the Holes
With the help of a power drill, carefully drill a hole into your drywall.
The hole should be approximately 2.5 inches in depth.
Step 6: Secure the Mount Plate
With the help of screws, lock your mount into the wall. Remember to tighten the screws so that your mount is fixed into place.
Step 7: Stability Check
Move your mount to see if it is safely secured into place. If the screws are loose, your mount will move from the base. If this is the case, it is a good idea to tighten the screws in.
Step 8: Install your TV
Once your mount is in place, install your TV by carefully lifting it and locking it in with the mount. You might need a friend to assist you in this step, just to ensure safety.
