Attaching Wall Plate to Wooden Studs:
1a. Locate wall studs: Locate a proper place to mount by
using the included stud finder (Figure 1) It is recommended that the center of the stud be used – and that
a nail be used to verify that a stud has been located.
The mount requires a minimum of two studs to ensure
proper and safe installation. The tilt arms will adjust
horizontally to the right and left up to 8 inches after
you determine the desired viewing location.
Attaching LevelMount to wall: Once the Wall Plate is
in the correct position on the studs, screw 1 Hex Screw
and 1 Hex Washer (P & Q) in the upper left mounting
hole of the Wall Plate into the stud. Do not screw too
tight until after all the screws are in. Drill

NOTE: Due to the weight of the LCD/Plasma TV’s, it is
necessary to mount the Wall Plate to at least 2 studs.
Attaching Wall Plate to Concrete:
1b. Attaching Wall Mount to concrete block or brick
wall: Place the Wall Plate at the height you want to
install the Plasma/LCD wall Mount. Mark the six holes
you will be using for concrete anchors (Figure 4). Utilize
the built-in bubble level to ensure proper mounting
(Figure 3). Drill holes for the concrete anchors using an
electric drill with a masonry bit (1/2’’ or 12mm (Figure
5)). �����������������������������������������������������
Drill into the wall at least as deep as the screw is
long (3 inches).
Insert the anchors into the holes and set them flush to
the wall by tapping them in with a hammer (Figure 6).
Once the Wall Plate is in the correct position on the
wall, screw 1 Dry Wall Screw and 1 Dry Wall Washer
(P & Q) in the upper left mounting hole of the
Wall Plate. Do not screw too tight until all the screws
are in.
Drive the 2nd screw into the opposite upper right hand
mounting hole of the Wall Plate, then proceed to drive
R
2. Selecting the Appropriate Hardware for your LCD/
Plasma: CAUTION: Select Bag 1-4, which most resembles the hole side on the back of your LCD/Plasma.
Thread the bolts carefully into your LCD or plasma by
hand to determine which provided mount hardware
(correct diameter) is appropriate for installation. If you
feel resistance, remove the bolt immediately! Next
determine the correct length of the required bolt as
described in the following step.
**PLEASE NOTE: You will not use all of the hardware
included. Please see last page of the manual if your
Plasma or LCD needs extension arms.
