Step 1: Attach TV Brackets
There are a wide variety of TVs available that require different bolt sizes. We provide a selection of mounting
bolts to fit most TVs. If you have any concerns about this mounting hardware or installation call us direct at
1-888-848-2643 or email at support@kantoliving.com.
Step 1.1 Determine the correct size of bolt.
Step 1.2 Attach TV Bracket Arms to the back of the TV
Kanto provides 3 bolt diameters (Metric sizes M5, M6
and M8) in various lengths.
Now that you have selected the correct bolt length,
attach the Bracket Arms to the TV. Use the Quick-Lock
TV Bracket Arm on the side of the TV that will be less
accessible when mounted.
Part items: A, B, C, D, E, F or G
Select the correct diameter bolt and hand tighten into
the back of the TV to determine the correct length. If
your TV has a curved back or the mounting holes are
recessed, you can use spacer (K) to ensure a proper fit.
You can use spacers inside or outside the bracket arm,
as shown in Diagram A.
Use the washers (H) for bolts A-D (sizes M5 and M6).
The washer will work for both bolt sizes.
The washer is not required for M8 size bolts (E, F & G).

Do not lay the TV face down on its glass front. Use a TV stand or lean against a wall.

Step 2: Mount Wall Plate
Before you start drilling, attach the Wall Plate Template to your wall. It will make marking and drilling level pilot holes
easier and catch a lot of the dust. Remember to remove it before you attach the wall plate!
Wood Stud Wall
Brick or Concrete Wall
The Wall Plate must be mounted to two wood studs. Use
a stud sensor to locate the two studs, clearly marking
the centers of the studs. Use a long level to make sure
these marks are horizontally level. Attach the Wall Plate
Template to the wall at the desired height so that the
stud center marks are visible through the mounting slots
and drill four pilot holes. Once you have drilled the pilot
holes, remove the Wall Plate Template.
Attach the Wall Plate Template to the wall at the desired
height. Adjust the desired Template holes to be clear
of mortar joints. Since the Wall Plate is two pieces,
it is important to check that the bottom Wall Plate is
parallel to the top using a long level. This ensures that
you can move the pivot point. Mark and drill the six
holes perpendicular to the wall using a masonry bit (see
Diagram C). Do not drill into mortar joints. Remove the
Template. Insert a Concrete Anchor (M) into each of
these holes until it is flush with the wall surface.
Attach the Wall Plate to the wall using 4 Lag Bolts (L) and
Lag Bolt Washers (I) (see Diagram B). Do not over-tighten
Lag Bolts (L). Make sure the Wall Plate is flat against the
wall surface. The Wall Plate is two pieces, so to ensure
you can move the pivot point, it is important to use a
level to ensure that the bottom Wall Plate is parallel to
the top.
Place the Wall Plate over the six anchors then mount
using the Lag Bolts (L), and Washers (I). Make sure the
Wall Plate is flat against the wall surface. Do not overtighten Lag Bolts (L).

CAUTION
Make sure the supporting surface will support

page two. Tighten Lag Bolts until the Wall Plate is snug
flat against the wall. Do not over tighten Lag Bolts (L).
Each Lag Bolt must be located in the center of a wood
stud.

CAUTION
Make sure the concrete or brick wall is at least
3.5” thick. Make sure the anchor is seated completely
flush with the concrete surface even if there is another
layer of material, such as drywall. If drywall is over 5/8”
thick custom Lag Bolts must be used. Concrete must
be a minimum of 2000psi in density.

CAUTION
Do not adjust pivot point while TV is mounted to the Wall Plate.
Step 3: Adjust Pivot Point
You can adjust the pivot point from side to side on the Wall Plate up to 20”. This flexibility gives you the option to mount in
corners or pivot to allow viewing at different angles.
Before you mount the TV to the Wall Plate, adjust the position of the pivot by removing the six screws that hold the Pivot
Plate to the Wall Plate, moving the Pivot Plate to its desired location, and re-attaching the six screws, as shown in Diagram
D.

Step 4: Attach TV to Wall Plate
Ensure the safety screw on the Locking Bracket Arm is loosened, as shown in Diagram E. With the Pivot Plate firmly secured
to the Wall Plate, use two people to lift the TV into position and hook the TV Bracket Arms onto the Wall Plate, as shown in
Diagram E. Lower the TV until the Quick-Lock Bracket Arm locks into place on the Wall Plate.
Tighten the safety screw on the bottom of the Locking TV Bracket Arm using a Phillips screwdriver to secure the plate in
place, as shown in Diagram F.

Step 6: Cable Management
Route your TV cables using the cable management
covers installed to the mount arms, as shown in Diagram
H. Access the clip by pulling the clip at the top and laying
the cable inside. The cable management clips can be

the screws on the bottom of the clip, moving it to the
other side, and replacing the screws.
