Think your Samsung LED TV would look great on your wall, but you’re not sure if you’re up for the task? You can do the job safely, quickly and easily with the Ultra Slim Wall Mount. Added bonus: It uses a unique cord-and-disc system that keeps cables untangled and walls tidy.
Here are a few things to keep in mind: Don't try to mount your television alone; ask a friend to help, especially with larger screen sizes. Read all instructions thoroughly. Don't over-tighten screws. You might want to watch this short video to see how it's done.
In addition to the mounting hardware, gather a Phillips-head screwdriver and a hammer. If you're mounting on drywall or wood, you'll need a power drill with a 13mm bit. If you have brick or concrete walls, a 9mm bit is best.
Improper wall mounting of your TV can lead to damaged or broken property or injury. If at any time you are unable to or do not feel confident that you can complete any step in this guide, then stop immediately. Place the TV in a safe location and contact a professional.
Preparing the Wall
Measure and mark the wall where you would like to mount the television. For drywall and wooden walls, use a 13mm drill bit to bore two small pilot holes. For concrete and brick walls, use a 9mm bit.
Hammer concrete anchors into the holes. Now insert the screw holder into the wall, align the tips, and push the cap forward into the wall. Remove the screw holder handles by tearing them out. At least one wall mount should be attached to a stud. If possible, attach both wall mounts to studs.
Screw the wall-mount bases into the holes and tighten. Place the wall mount caps over the exposed bases.
Preparing the Television
Gently lay the TV face-down on a soft surface, preferably the top of the Styrofoam packing insert used to support the front of the television. Otherwise try a soft blanket.
Follow these steps only if your television is attached to a pedestal.
Remove the two screws on the Ultra Slim Wire Mount bar on the back of the TV, and then attach the Ultra Slim Wire Mount discs using these screws. Tighten the wire between the two mounting discs by turning the knobs. Attach the two kickstands to the back of the TV using the provided screws. (You'll use the kickstand to access cable jacks; be sure to close it after you've made the connections.) The mounting hardware is now installed.
Mounting the TV
Now you're ready to hang the television on the wall mounts. Does the mounting wire wrap fully around the wall-mount discs? If so, you're finished. Plug in your TV, connect it to other sources, and enjoy a great viewing experience. You deserve it.
