We all want to save some money when we buy a new TV. Buying an expensive mount for the TV may not be necessary if you follow this step by step guide for how to mount a tv without a mount! This will show you how easy it is, and how much money you can save on your next purchase.
Gather your materials
The first thing you are going to need is your TV. You will also want the following materials:
– a wall mount; can be purchased at any home improvement store for around $30-$40
– two screws, about an inch long; make sure they fit in the holes on your TV and mounts (most of them do , but just double-check)
– drill with a Phillips head bit
– level (optional, but recommended)
Once you have all of your materials together, the first thing to do is measure how high up on the wall you want your TV. You can use a chair or ladder if needed. Once that measurement has been made, it is time to make the necessary holes in your drywall. You will drill two small holes on either side of where you would like your TV to be mounted.
Determine the size of TV you want to mount
Before you drill the holes, it is important to figure out how big of a TV your mount will be able to hold. The size varies depending on whether or not you want to hang the TV on the wall from one stud or two.
– If only hanging the TV by using one stud in between them, then measure how wide and how deep the TV is.
– If you want to mount it on two studs, then how wide and how tall are your tv’s dimensions? Make sure that there is at least one inch of space between each side of the wall where you plan to drill holes.
Decide where you want to mount it
If you want to mount it on a wall, make sure that there is at least one inch of space between each side of the wall where you plan to drill holes. If your TV must be mounted on top of furniture (or something else), then measure how high up from the ground or surface your TV should hang and mark two spots with tape to indicate how high up you would like it to be mounted.
Get the right tools for the job
For TV mounting, you will need a drill with Phillips head bit and level. You can also use a stud finder to make sure that there is at least one inch of space between each side of the wall where you plan to drill holes.
If your mounting brackets come with screws or nails, then it’s time for the next steps!
Find a stud in your desired location
If you want to mount it on one stud, then find the nearest stud by using a stud finder. If there is more than one in your desired location, make sure that they are even with each other and mark them both with tape so they will not be drilled into when drilling holes for mounting brackets.
Drill pilot holes into the center of each stud
It is important to make sure that the pilot holes are drilled squarely in the center of each stud. You will do this by carefully measuring how wide your screws or nails are and drilling a hole slightly smaller than their width; these will prevent drywall from cracking when you secure items with screws/nails.
