Don’t Make These Mistakes When You Mount Your TV

Mounting a TV to the wall can be a daunting task, but it’s a great way to free up space and improve your viewing experience. However, there are a few common mistakes that people make when mounting their TVs, which can lead to safety hazards or damage to your TV.

Here are some of the most common mistakes people make when mounting their TVs

  • Using the wrong TV bracket. Not all TV brackets are created equal. It’s important to choose a bracket that is compatible with your TV’s weight and size, as well as the type of wall you’re mounting it on.
  • Mounting your TV on drywall without a stud. Drywall is not strong enough to support the weight of a TV, so it’s important to mount it on a stud. If you don’t have any studs in the right location, you can use a wall anchor.
  • Blocking the TV inputs. The location of the TV inputs can vary depending on the brand and model. Make sure to choose a bracket that will not block the inputs.
  • Letting your TV face the sun. If your TV is facing the sun, the glare can make it difficult to see. Choose a location for your TV that is not in direct sunlight.
  • Not planning for future devices. When you’re mounting your TV, it’s important to plan for future devices. Make sure to leave enough space for things like soundbars, game consoles, and streaming devices.
