Getting ready to hang the TV
Select the location where you want to mount the TV. Clear the area of all furniture and
electronics. You will need some elbow room to mount the TV. You also want to make sure
that your electronic devices are unplugged, covered, and out of way because you are about to
start drilling holes, and that is likely to make dust. You will also need to leave space that you
can use to mount the Monitor Plate (MP) onto the TV.
Your TV may have come with a stand installed. If it did, it is okay to leave it on for
now as long as it does not interfere with the monitor plate installation. If not, you
need to determine the best way to hold or rest your TV safely so you can attach the
monitor plate. Placing the TV face-down can damage the fragile screen or
decorative frame. You may want to get a friend to assist you in holding the TV. If
you are uncertain of the safest way to do this, call the TV manufacturer for advice.
Step 1: Attaching the Monitor Plate
Your TV owner’s manual generally explains where the mounting location is on the TV. There
are several typical mounting configurations for this size bracket. The mounting hole distances
are measured in millimeters per the VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association)
specifications. Table 1 lists the inch and millimeter equivalents just in case you have to
measure them.
Use a tape measure to check the distances between the horizontal and vertical mounting
holes. If your mounting hole configuration is a Standard for this mount, as listed in Table 1,
you’re ready for the next step. If your hole configuration requires the included For Dummies
8190 Adapter (AP), please refer to the instructions on page 9 for connecting the adapter to
the monitor plate. For other UL Listed adapters that may be used with this mount (sold
separately), please visit

Who is VESA?
The Video Electronics Standards Association is an international nonprofit organization
representing hardware, software, PC, display, and component manufacturers, cable and telephone
companies, and service providers. VESA supports and sets industry-wide interface standards for the
PC, workstation, and computing environments.
Choosing which screws to use
You’re probably wondering why so many screws came with this mount. The screw sizes follow
the standards set up by VESA for each mounting configuration. Before beginning, you may
need to test several of the screws in your hardware kit to find the correct size.
If you will be utilizing the 8190 Adapter Plates (AP) for larger mounting configurations, see page 9 before
Most monitors have the mounting holes flush with the back of the monitor. If yours is like
this, attach the monitor plate using the correct TV Mounting Screws as shown in Figure 1.
Make sure that the appropriate Washers (F, R or S) are placed between the screw and the
Monitor Plate (MP). Don’t place the washers between the monitor plate and the TV.
Don’t use screws that are too long because they will not fully seat in the holes and can
permanently damage the TV or mounting holes and cause the monitor to come loose.
Figure 1
Back of TV
F, R or S
Use spacers in situations when the arms do not fit firmly against the back of the television,
such as when the back of the television is curved, contains larger recessed mounting holes, or
some other obstruction is in the way. If your TV requires use of a spacer, the spacer you select
must stick out past the back of the TV to ensure proper mounting. You don’t want the spacer
to be loose. The Monitor Plate (MP) needs to rest securely on the spacers.

Using the 8190 Adapter Plates
Some TVs have larger mounting configurations (200 x 200, 200 x 150, or 200 x 100), and
the Monitor Plate (MP) alone cannot reach these holes. If this is the case for your TV, you
need to use the included 8190 Adapter Plates (AP).
Figure 3
For 200x200 & 200x150
mounting configurations:
For 200x100 mounting configuration:
Attach the Adapter Plates (AP) to the
Monitor Plate (MP) using four small M5
Washers (F) and four M5 x 6mm Screws (AG)
as shown in Figure 3. For TVs that have a
larger mounting configuration, insert the screws
into the outer holes. For smaller configurations,
use the inner holes. [See previous page and
Fig. 4 for mounting to the TV].
The 200x100 configuration
typically uses six TV mounting
screws for this type of
installation. All other
configurations typically use
four TV mounting screws.

Step 2: Securing the Wall Mount
Finding a wood stud to mount to
Using a stud finder, determine the exact location of the stud to which you want to attach the
wall mount. Using an electronic stud finder works best because it gives you an indication of
where the right and left sides of the stud are. After you determine the stud location, mark the
right and left side of the stud as shown in Figure 5. These markings help you determine the
center location of the stud for proper drilling. Line up the Installation Template (IT) with
your pencil markings and tape it into place.
Figure 5
Wood Stud
Determining the location of the TV
After the Monitor Plate (MP) has been mounted to the TV, you can now measure the distance
from the bracket holes to the top and bottom of the TV to help determine the desired height of
the TV on your wall. The reason that you need to take these measurements is because many
monitors do not have the mounting location centered on the back of the monitor. To determine
the exact height you want to mount the brackets, use the convenient Installation Template (IT)
rather than holding the TV in place while you do all this measuring. Always make sure to use a
level when placing the template. Measure from the floor up as shown in Figure 6, and using a
pencil, make small marks on the wall to help you determine the desired TV height.
Figure 6
Height to bottom of TV
Using the Installation Template
The Installation Template (IT) included in this kit helps you select the correct positions for
drilling the holes for the TV mounting. Figure 7 shows what the holes on the template represent.
Figure 7
You must be careful to accurately drill the holes or else the screws
may not line up with the holes in your wall mount.
When mounting to a wood stud
Line up the Installation Template (IT) with the stud markings to ensure the proper location
for your drill holes. After you have the position selected, tape the template in place securely
on the wall with masking tape so that you don’t damage the wall surface. Use a level to
double check that the screw holes will line up vertically as shown in Figure 8. Drill two holes
2.5" (64mm) deep using a 5/32" (or 4mm) size drill bit in the “a” and “b” locations noted on
the Installation Template.
When you have prepared the holes for
mounting the wall mount, screw two of the
Lag Bolts (T) three-quarters of the way into
the holes. Leave enough room so you can slip
the Wall Mount (WM) over the screws.
Install the wall mount as shown
without tightening the screws
Figure 8
After the wall mount is on the
wall, you can install the top lag
bolt. First, use a level to make sure
the mount is vertically level.
Using a drill and the 5/32" (or
4mm) size drill bit, drill a third
hole 2.5" (64mm) deep through
the securing hole (see Figure 7),
and then insert the final Lag Bolt (T).
Leave some “wiggle” room so you can make any fine adjustments, if necessary. After making
sure the wall mount is level, tighten all of the lag bolts completely.
Tighten mounting screws so that the wall plate is firmly attached to the wall, but don’t
overtighten! The mounting screws and/or the supporting surface can become damaged,
which greatly reduces their holding ability. Final tightening of the mounting screws should
always be done by hand, with a Phillips-head screwdriver or ratchet wrench.
When mounting to solid concrete, bricks, or cinder block
This kit includes the TOGGLER® brand
ALLIGATOR® Anchors (U) for mounting in
concrete walls, bricks, or cinder block. These
patented anchors are the finest solid wall
anchors on the market and offer excellent
holding ability when properly installed.
Figure 9
After you have determined your desired TV
location, tape the Installation Template (IT) in
place securely on the wall with masking tape.
Use a level to double check that the screw holes
line up vertically as shown in Figure 9.
Carefully drill two holes using a 5/16" (or 8mm)
masonry drill bit in the “a” and “b” locations
noted on the Installation Template. Each hole
should be at least 3" (76mm) deep.
Concrete Block Wall
Do not drill into mortar joints! Mortar joints are in between the bricks where the
cement is. These joints are typically not strong enough to hold heavy loads. You
need to drill the holes at least one inch from the joint to provide adequate
strength. Use a standard drill with a new masonry drill bit to drill the holes. Do
not use a hammer drill because it can damage the hole or break out the back of the
concrete wall which will not give adequate support to the anchor.
Because drilling an accurate and clean hole is essential to securing your mount, be
sure to use a new drill bit. An old drill bit can not only make an uneven hole, it
can also break out the back of the concrete block which can diminish the holding
ability of the anchor.
Figure 10
After the holes are drilled,
remove the template and place
the ALLIGATOR® Anchor
(U) into the concrete wall as
shown in Figure 10.
After you have prepared the two holes for mounting the wall mount, screw the two bottom
Lag Bolts (T) three-quarters of the way into the holes. Leave enough room so that you can
slip the wall mount over the screws. Install the Wall Mount (WM) as shown in Figures 8 and
11 without tightening the screws completely.
Figure 11
3" (76mm) minimum
hole depth
After the Wall Mount (WM) is on the wall, you can install the top Lag Bolt (T). First, use a
level to make sure the mount is vertically level. Then mark the center of the top securing
hole “c” (see Figure 7) with a pencil, and remove the wall mount from the wall. Using a drill
and the 5/16" (or 8mm) size drill bit, drill at least a 3" (76mm) deep hole through the top
securing hole mark. Next, insert the third ALLIGATOR® Anchor (U) into the top securing
hole. You can now reinstall the wall mount and place the lag bolt into the securing hole “c”.
Leave some “wiggle room” so you can make any fine adjustments if necessary. Finally, tighten
all of the lag bolts completely.
Step 3: Mounting the TV
Preparing the security screws
You need to mount the Monitor Plate (MP) onto the Wall Mount (WM). To ensure it does
not come off, you use two screws to secure the parts together. You have two choices of screw
sizes. For TVs under 20" (508mm) you can use the shorter 16mm Security Screws (X). If your
TV is larger than 20" (508mm) you need to use the longer 160mm Security Screws (W) with
the Plastic Sleeves (V). Using the longer screws makes it easier to find and turn the screw with
a screwdriver after you have installed the TV.
After you have selected the screw length (and spacer for long screw), place the screws in the
wall mount as shown in Figure 12A or 12B, depending on the size of your TV. Make sure the
screw is secure but does not come past the metal as shown.

Figure 12B
(For TVs over 20")

Don’t forget those wires!
If your audio, video, and power cables will not be accessible after you mount the
TV, you need to make those connections now. Before doing this, however, make
sure all TV and component power cords are not plugged into any electrical outlets
and your audio and video equipment is turned off. Make sure you leave enough
slack so you can install the mount without any interference.
Mounting the TV
Figure 13
When you’re ready to put the Monitor Plate (MP) onto the
Wall Mount (WM), get a friend or an assistant to help you
lift the TV and guide the Monitor Plate onto the Wall
Mount as shown in Figure 13.
After you’re confident it is properly installed and the TV is
securely mounted to the wall, you need to tighten the Security
Screws (X or W) using a Phillips-head screwdriver as shown.
You really need two people for this part of the task: One
person can hold the monitor steady while the other turns the
security screws into the wall plate. You may need to align the
monitor plate and the wall plate to ensure proper insertion
of the security screws. After the TV is installed, carefully try
to lift it off to make sure it is secure. If it is correctly secured,
the TV should not move.
If you need to remove the TV
X or W
Flat screen TVs are very heavy and extremely fragile.
Exercise caution when removing the display from the mount
to avoid equipment damage or personal injury.
If your cables are accessible, disconnect all power and A/V cables before removing the display from
the Wall Mount (WM). If cables are not accessible, have an assistant remove the cables as soon as
the TV is lifted off the wall mount. Also have the assisstant hold the TV as you loosen the Security
Screws (X or W) from underneath using a Phillips-head screwdriver. Lift the TV straight up until it
becomes free from the wall mount.
