How to Mount a TV in Preparation for Football Season

How to Mount a TV

Football season is around the corner, which means now is a great time to mount a TV for the ultimate game-watching experience for your family and friends.

Here are some tips that will help you when it’s time to mount a TV:

  1. Measure the space where you plan to place your TV. Make sure there’s enough room for the TV stand, cables, and other equipment.
  2. Find out if the wall has any electrical outlets nearby. You can use an extension cord to power your TV.
  3. Determine how high you want to hang your TV. It should be as close to eye level as possible.
  4. Decide whether you want to buy a new TV stand or get one from a store. A good quality stand will last for years.
  5. Consider buying a universal TV bracket so you won’t need to purchase multiple brackets for different TVs.
  6. Use proper tools to mount your TV. Screws and nails are not recommended because they may damage walls.
  7. Be careful while drilling holes in walls. Avoid hitting pipes or wires inside the wall.
  8. Don’t drill too many holes in the wall. Leave at least 2 inches between each hole.
  9. When screwing the TV to the wall, make sure to keep the screws away from electrical outlets.
  10. Keep all cords and wires away from the back of the TV.
  11. Before hanging your TV, check the connections. Turn off the TV and remove the antenna. Then turn on the TV again. If everything works fine, you’re ready to go!
  12. After you mount a TV, test its connection by turning on the TV. If there are no problems, then you’re done!
  13. Clean up the area after mounting your TV. Remove excess screws and glue.
  14. Finally, enjoy watching your favorite team!
