Have nowhere to install your flat screen? Need to mount it on the ceiling but don’t know how? Don’t worry, you have come to the right place. The truth is, it is possible for you to do a ceiling mount on your own without any help. All you need to do is ensure that you have a ceiling mount that is compatible with your flat screen.
Here is a step by step guide on how to ceiling mount your TV:
Secure The Mounting Brackets
For this, you will need a few supplies to begin the process. Go to any hardware store and get the following supplies. If some items are included with your TV then no need to buy them:
Use the fasteners to secure the bracket in the slot. They should be secure and not lose at all. This is why you need to ensure they are firm and tight.
Attach The Ceiling Mounting Plate
Grab a ladder and stud finder to reach the ceiling. Use it to find the studs on your ceiling and mark them. After that, if you want your wiring to be invisible then you need to drill holes into your ceiling so the wired can provide power without being in sight.
Next, you need to attach the ceiling mount to your ceiling studs. Utilize the drill to attach the mounting plate to the studs. If your mount needs to bolts then you will have to use a socket wrench instead to fasten it.
Once this is done you need to ensure that the plate is attached firmly.
Mount The TV On The Ceiling
Follow the instructions of the mount you bought to fasten it to the mounting plate. This is because instructions will vary for every mount. Once you do, you need to attach the TV mounting bracket to the extension.
This may cause some difficulty, so it is better you have a helping hand during this stage. Use the fastener to ensure the TV is secure and in place.
After you are done assembly, check if your TV is firm. This is because if it is loose or it wobbles then you need to make sure all the screws and fasteners are tight before you use it. And you are done!
Mounting a TV on the ceiling is doable on your own. All you have to do is gather the supplies and follow these steps. Once you do, you will have mounted your TV on your ceiling in no time!
