One of the best ways to display your Samsung TV is by mounting it on the wall. When you get a wall mount kit, you've already done the hard part. The rest is easy.
One of the wonderful things about having a LED Samsung TV is being able to mount it on your wall. In fact, Samsung has even patented* an innovative and easy way to wallmount your LED TV.
We know what you’re thinking, though:
"I’d have to hire someone else to do that."
"Oh, it’s fine where it is..."
"That seems too difficult. I would just ruin it."
The truth is that you can easily mount your Samsung LED TV with only a few tools and even less elbow grease. If you’ve got a 32”- 65” Samsung LED TV**, all you’ll need to easily mount it on your wall are the following things:
- Ultra Slim Wall Mount Kit
- Phillips Head (+) screwdriver
- Power Drill
- Measuring tape
- A friend :)
Choosing the Right Wall Space
Ideally, you’ll want to mount your Samsung LED TV in a position that doesn’t require you to tilt your head in an uncomfortable position. After all, watching TV and movies should be a relaxing experience that lets you lean back and relax instead of leaning forward to concentrate.
You should plan to mount your TV at a height where the center of the screen is eye level when you are seated.
It’s also a good idea to make sure the spot you want to hang your Samsung LED TV is free from light glares or obstruction, and that there is ample room around the edge of the screen.
Don’t forget that you’ll probably need to run wires to your television, and while this is possible to do within the wall, it might take a professional to assure it is done correctly. Consult with an expert if you plan to do so.
The Ultra Slim Wall Mount Kit has hardware to mount your television on various surfaces, including the following:
- Solid Brick
- Gypsum Board
When mounting on drywall, install into ½” drywall or thicker. If you are mounting to 3/8” drywall, one mount must be anchored to a wall stud.
Attaching the Mount to Your Television
You can also follow these steps illustrated in the quick setup guide included with your Ultra-Slim Wall Mount.
You will need to arrange the 4 anchors on the back of your television in the correct configuration.
Screw in the anchors to their appropriate locations.
Use the knobs to tighten the mounting wire.
Assembling Wall Mounts
Measure and mark the dimensions of your preferred placement.
Depending on your type of wall, you may need to use wall anchors and specific screws. (Included) See the quick installation guide to determine which set you should use on your wall.
When you have drilled guide holes for your wall mounts, simply remove the Samsung branded caps from and you’ll be able to screw in the wall mounts.
For Gypsum walls and other surfaces, you may require additional steps to properly secure wall mounts. See the quick installation guide for further information.
Once the wall mounts are secure and the anchors are attached to the back of your television, ask your friend to help you lift it onto the wall mounts.
Hang the TV with the mounting wire over the wall mounts as you would hang a picture frame.
When your Samsung LED TV is mounted correctly, it should be less than 2” from the wall, reinforcing the great aesthetic that comes with having a flat screen.
When connecting wires to the back of the monitor, use the metal stand to prop the TV off the wall.
Wall mounting your Samsung LED TV is one of the ways to get the most out of your Samsung experience. For more guides and step-by-step instructions for using Samsung TV products, be sure to check back to the Samsung TV Portal.
