We're a take these arms mount them on the television and then I'm a mount this plate on the wall and the TV's a hang on the plate, and we just need to put the arms on the television.I prefer to do this with a screwdriver. You know some guys use power tools, but me I've always felt more comfortable doing this just with hand tools. Now we just need to tighten these guys down. Okay, so we've got the arms on our television. We need to mount our backing plate on the wall and to get a measurement.
We need a measuring tape, backer plate, stud finder, very important level and our pencil pencil okay. So it's not a hurt the TV to lay this stuff on it, and the first thing I'm a do is I'm going to clip the backer plate onto the television and the way I like to do it is I'm going to measure the difference between The bottom of the plate in the bottom of the television - in this case it's almost exactly 10 inches. We determined earlier today that the bottom of our television is going to be about 56 inches from the bottom of the floor. So now we need our level pencil stud finder, alright, so determine the center of our wall is about right here and then we're a go up. These numbers are very round, so it's very easy to remember, but 56 is going to be the bottom of our television, so the bottom of our bracket is going to be 66 and I've already made a mark for the bottom of the bracket.
Next thing we need to do so. We need to find our studs, that's pretty simple. There we go, got the all-clear light, there's the edge of one and there's the other edge. Now, I'm just going to mark the center of the stud for you'll, see why I'm doing that a minute and up there's the edge or the other one and we're a go back this side now up it's not the steady one and there's the other one Right there I got I'm a mark the center of that. Now.What I'm line from it, and obviously I'm making sure these a level constantly is, I'm a then use this to determine which set of holes I'm a Use on the back of that Mauler, some installers will put blue tape on the wall. My opinion is TVs, a hide it anyway. So I'm not too too worried about that. We got our mount, it does have an up-and-down and I almost had it upside down.
Yo you may want to have another person assist you doing this. I've done this a couple times, so I don't feel any discomfort doing this on my own. It just takes a minute to level it out. Cruz, it's a little heavy and again I'm just marking my pilot hold mark my holes for my where my bolts area go and then I'm pulling it down and that's about it. So we've got our arms on our television.
We've got the dimension for a television in our backyard to drill some holes to mount our fasteners. So the first thing I'm going to do is drill. My pilot holes make sure that everything's good, which I'm sure it is yep good yep like how that feels there. We go one more and then, since those are just our pilots, we need to open these up and for the fasteners I'm using today they require a half-inch hole.
