Measure out the width and height of the four holes on the back of your television. (Fig 1) 2. Separate the middle part of the mount from the two end parts by removing the 8pcs screws. 3. Set the wall plate size according to following points and assemble by 8pcs screws. a)Width of Hole Pattern on television (Wall Plate should be wider than the horizontal distance between threaded inserts on the back of your TV by at least 2″ [50.8 mm])（Fig 3). b)Width of television (Wall Plate Assembly should be configured so the total width is less than the overall width of your television) c)Stud Spacing (you are recommended attaching Wall Plate Assembly to three studs for televisions over 125 lbs. [56.7 Kg]) 4. Set the size of the two television brackets according to the height of the hole distance on the back of your television by 2 ″ [50.8 mm](Fig 4) (x4) M8x16 Bolt (x4) M8x40 Bolt (x4) M8 Lock Washer (x4) M4/M5 Spacer (x4) M6/M8 Spacer (x4) M4/M5 Washer (x1) Bubble Level System (x8)M8x60 Lag Bolt (x8) Washer (x8)Concret anchor Note: You need to put the bubble level system on the pipe when you install the wall plate and take it away after you finish installation. Wood Stud Installation For secure wood stud mounting, the wall plate must be mounted to two studs at least 12” apart. 1.Use a high-quality electronic stud finder (commercially available) to locate two adjacent studs and mark their locations with a pencil. 2.With the help of an assistant, and using the bubble level to ensure the wall plate is level,position the wall plate against the wall in the desired mounting location. 3.Mark the right, upper and lower and the left (upper and lower), positions of the small horizontal slots that are in alignment with the studs. 4.You should mark four positions total. 5.Next, pre-drill a 5/16” hole in the wall stud at each marked location. 6.With the help of an assistant, position the wall plate against the wall and line up the mounting slots with drilled holes. 7.For each location, insert a lag bolt and washer into the wall. 8.Tighten bolt with an open ended socket wrench by turning clockwise until tight. CAUTION: Do not over-tighten bolts-doing so may cause unnecessary damage to the wall. Avoid excessive torque. CAUTION: Do not release the wall plate until it is properly mounted and secured to the wall. Concrete/Brick Installation NOTE: The concrete anchors must be used for concrete installation. They can be purchased at your local hardware store. 1. Begin by placing the wall plate into position against the wall, using the bubble level to keep it level. 2. Mark off four holes to be used for securing the mount and place the wall plate aside. 3. Next, drill holes using an electric drill and 5/16” masonry bit. 4. Insert a concrete anchor into each hole. 5. If necessary, a hammer can be used to lightly tap each anchor into place so that they are flush with the wall. 6. Once all of the anchors are in place, move the wall plate back into position. 7. Attach the lag bolt into the achor that is placed in the wall. 8. Do not tighten until all nuts are in place. Display Bracket Installation 1. To ensure optimal installation, this kit includes various screws of different diameters and lengths. 2. Place your TV screen down on a soft, flat surface, and locate the threaded mounting points that are located on the back of the display. 3. Determine which screw is the correct length by carefully inserting a straw, or toothpick, and mark how deep the mounting point is. 4. If your display has a curved back or a recessed thread mounting point, a spacer must be used. NOTE: Select the spacer that is closest in depth to the recess to keep your bracket as close to the display as possible. 5. Place the spacer between the mounting bracket and the display. 6. If a smaller screw is being used(M4,M5 or M6), please use a washer with each screw for added stability Final Installation Attach each bracket to the display by aligning the holes on each bracket, with the threaded inserts on the back panel of your display, inserting the screws through both and turning clockwise until they are fully inserted. 1. Tighten with a Phillips head screw driver. CAUTION: Two people are required for this step. 2. To complete the installation of your new plasma mount, carefully place the television brackets over the upper and lower mounting crossbars. 3. Making sure that the safety-bar is not in place when placing the television on the mount For additional security, you can install the safety-bar that is included with your mount. The safety bar can be inserted from either side of the mount. It should pass through the interspace of the lower part of the two TV brackets. You can also attach a padlock (not included) to the end of the safety-bar to prevent unwanted removal of your TV from the mount.
