How to mount a TV on Manhattan comfort?
As we previously discussed, Manhattan Comfort is a well-known brand when it comes to entertainment centers. They have a big catalog with different models available. However, the majority of them can be installed in a similar way.
When installing the entertainment center, you have to be careful of some factors. These are necessary for your safety as well as mounting them on the wall easily. Let’s take a look at the steps in detail:
Step # 1 - Fix the panels
The first thing you need to do is to lay the panels on the floor and arrange the panels. First, make sure that the floor is lined with cardboard and foam. You can use the packing material for this purpose. You also need to ensure that the panels have their rear side up.
After that, you must check all the positions of holes according to the drawing in the manual. Then, join the panels at the edges and attach them using steel plates and fix them in place using bolts.
Next, you need to position the rear panels in place. You can do this with dowels. Then fix them with bolts. Follow the same instructions to attach the upper panel. To increase the hold of these panels, you can also use glue.
Step # 2 - Build the Shelves
To build the shelves, you first have to attach the middle shelf pieces with dowels. Fix them in the left and right panels. Then, you need to join the middle partitions. Be sure that you use the dowels and cam lock hardware. This includes the smaller screws and washer assemblies.
In the end, you can attach the adhesive cover to conceal the screw heads.
Step # 3 - Attach the shelves
After you have attached the panels, you need to flip them. Then, you can move to the shelves.
Lift the shelf and attach it to the panels with dowels and bolts to fix it in place. The dowels also attach from the backside so make sure that you keep the panels in a standing position.
The upper half of the shelf also needs to be attached in this step. It is a large panel of wood and can be attached to the panels using multiple screws. Be sure that you tighten all the screws.
Step # 4 - Install the support and bar on the wall
Next, you need to install the panels on the wall. Before you do this, there are a couple of things you have to be careful of. First, you have to mark the place where you want to install the panels.
You also need to consider the material of the wall is made of and the strength. We recommend that you use wall anchors and fix the panel on the wall studs when possible. The wall anchors come with the entertainment center, however, they are only for use on drywall.
To fix the bars on the wall:
- First, you have to mark the positions for the holes on the wall.
- Then, drill holes into the wall. The holes should have a diameter of ½ inches.
- Lastly, fix the bushes into the holes, and fix the support and the bar with the beveled edge facing up. Be sure that you apply the screws and bolts as indicated in the manual.
Step # 5 - Attach the panel to the bar
After you have attached the support and bar, you need to attach the panel. Simply lift the assembled panel up and attach it to the bar on the wall.
You may need assistance in this step as the panel may be heavy.
Step # 6 - Apply finishing touches
Lastly, you need to finalize the installation. To ensure safety and prevent the panel from falling, you need to attach some safety screws. These go into the middle support bar from an opening in the middle shelf.
You can cover these screws with plastic covers. Attach them with glue.
Lastly, run the wiring through the panel. You can fish them through the panels between the holes in it. You can also drill additional slots
Step # 7 - Attach the TV wall mount to the panel
Next, you can attach the TV wall mount to the panel. You first need to chose which mount you want to attach to the panel. Your options are influenced by the amount of flexibility you want to have over the TV angles and the size and weight of the TV.
There are different types of mounts available in the market. However, their installation is similar. First, mark the areas you want to drill the pilot holes for the mount. Then, you need to drill the holes and settle the wall mount in place.
Do this through the screws that come with the wall mount. You need to hold the wall mount in place and then tighten the screws in the pilot holes.
Then, you need to attach the mounting brackets to the back of your TV. Check the VESA specifications of your TV and the wall mount to check their compatibility.
Then, you can attach the TV to the wall mount on the panel. Afterward, attach all the cables and check if the TV is working properly or not.
