Flush TV Wall Brackets Installations Into Cement or Wooden Walls


A flush TV bracket is equivalent to a panel with several slots. The TV brackets are used to flush-mount the TV onto the wallboard. The panel is installed flush with the wallboard and the connection between the panel and the wallboard is plastered to create a uniform appearance on the wall. The TV can be mounted on the brackets and it will appear to be attached directly to the wall giving a cinematic effect to the room. This is accomplished by having the TV wall brackets flush against the wall and the TV hanged on the brackets of the mount. The space between the TV and mount can be fairly small, making the attachments barely unnoticeable. There are many models and types of TV wall brackets, and you should select a TV bracket that can hold the size and weight of the flat screen panel. The flush TV wall bracket is considered the simplest TV bracket to fit and install.

Prepare your tools and equipment before doing the installation. It is more difficult looking for a particular tool when you are in the middle of the installation process, and everything is askew in the room. The normal tools would be a level, stud finder, pipe and cable finder, drill with appropriate drill bits, nut and bolt wrench, epoxy glue and screwdrivers. All these tools might not be required but it is better to have them readily available should you need them. The level is to ensure the TV wall mount is even and straight on the wall. People without levels might use measuring tapes to get the exact distances and ensure the holes are straight and equidistant. The stud finder is used to find studs behind a wooden wall. If you are attaching to a cement or brick wall, you might not need it. The pipe and cable finder will help you locate cables and pipes behind the wall, ensuring you don't accidentally drill into them.

The drill will facilitate your putting the holes into the walls. People who don't have drills use a hammer and nail to put holes in the wall. The wrench and screwdrivers are necessary to tighten the bolts and screws on the TV wall bracket and the TV onto the arms of the bracket. When you are ready, place the longer horizontal wall plate flush against the wall and mark the fixing point with an indelible marker. Be sure the wall mount is pressed against the wall, and is even and level to the floor and ceiling. There should be about six drill holes to fit the back plate to the wall. If your wall is wooden, make sure there are studs behind the wall where the holes are positioned. Plasterboards are not strong enough to hold the weight of the TV bracket and television. When drilling into the wall, be sure you avoid any pipes or cables that are behind the walls.

Once the holes are drilled, put epoxy glue into the holes and insert the six wall plugs. Screw the back plate to the wall ensuring everything is securely tightened. The glue is optional but highly advisable. It helps strengthen the hold of the screws onto the studs or block wall and minimizes the risk of the TV wall mount being ripped off the wall. Put the TV face down on a soft surface and fix the two bracket arms to the back of the television, tightening the bolts in place with washers and spacers, as needed. There should not be any problem placing the television on the wall mount as most, if not all television and wall mount manufacturers follow VESA standards. Be sure the cables and power wires are connected before hooking the TV over the wall plates. The process of installing the TV flush mount bracket is the same on wood and block walls. The main difference is the material the TV mount will be attached to. The same precautions should be followed, which is to ensure the TV Wall bracket is firmly secured on studs or cement blocks.
