This is some valuable information if you are thinking about using TV brackets to mount a flat panel television. You will need to make sure you find a TV bracket and mount that is right for your television. Most displays are compatible with and follow the VESA standards. You can check your television’s owner manual for VESA
(Video Electronics Standards Association).
Followed by the word VESA you should see a number. This number tells you how far apart the holes for the bracket are in millimeters. You can also measure the holes yourself to figure out which VESA standard will work for your TV. TV brackets and mounts are often compatible with more than one VESA standard, so it will not be hard to find the one that matches up with your TV.
It’s very important to make sure your TV bracket will hold the weight of your television. Double check the maximum weight listed.
You should decide what you want the TV bracket to be capable of. There are lots of options. Being able to swivel the TV left or right can be helpful if you have glare from the sun coming into the room at any point in the day.
A bracket that allows the TV to be moved slightly up or down on the wall is great just in case you don’t have it set in just the right spot while hanging it.
Planning out the project before you start is the best approach. As long as you have the right TV bracket, a few handy tools and an extra pair of arms, you should be able to do the job in just a few hours.
