When people install their televisions they might fall in the following 5 mistakes:
1- Not having the proper tools to complete the job. In order to install the TV properly you should have all the needed tools such as Impact driver, drill bits, driver bit, measuring tape, pen and a level.
2- Using wrong fixtures. The type of the wall dictates what fixtures to use when installing the TV bracket. TV brackets come with plugs and screws to be used in case the TV is installed to a brick or concrete wall. If the installation is made to a hollow wall the supplied plugs should not be used in otherwise the TV will be prone to falling.
The choice of suitable screws varies depending on the studs inside the hollow wall, whether they are metal or wooden studs.
3- Installing the TV at the wrong height. When installing a TV at home, the center of the television should always be at eye level. If the TV is installed too high or too low the watching experience will be compromised and long watching hours will lead to neck pain.
Mounting the TV on wall is a job that should be done properly otherwise safety and enjoyable watching experience are compromised.
4- Using the wrong bracket. When purchasing a TV bracket, the weight and the size of the TV should be taken into consideration simultaneously. For example a bracket that can hold 32 inches to 55 inches TVs with a weight limit of 25 kg is not suitable to install a 43 inches plasma TV even though its size is within the range because these old TVs usually weigh around 32 kg.
Using a wrong bracket drastically compromises the safety of people especially kids and pets in addition to the damages that might occur to furniture and to the TV itself.
5- Insecure installation. One of the most common mistakes people do when installing their TVs is attaching the bracket to a plaster wall using different hollow walls fixings instead of fastening it to the studs. Some hollow wall fixings hold 20 kg, but when installing a TV you should always take into consideration the leverage created by the weight of the TV which will eventually lead to the failure of the hollow wall fixtures. Regardless the size or weight of the TV, the bracket should always be secured to studs.
