- Serious damages on either the wall or the television may be encountered in case the manual is not followed to the latter. The manual provide correct procedures to be followed during installation to avoid any damages that may occur
- Avoid your hands from moving back and forth in the bracket to prevent them from getting trap and thus causing damages. Keep the product out of reach of children
- The product should be installed by at least someone with a basic knowledge in the building construction and has clear understanding of the instruction in the manual
- With maximum capacity of the wall bracket hitting a maximum of 32kg a weight above that may result to damages
- If mounting to a wall of wood stud construction, be sure that mounting bolt are anchored to the center of the stud, when installing the TV wall mount on a concrete wall, the wall must be at least 8″(203mm) thick with a minimum compressive strength of 2500 to 3000 psi (17.2 to 20.7 MPa), the concrete wall must meet ASTM C39. When installing the TV mount on a cinder block wall, the cinder blocks must meet ASTM C216 specifications and have a minimum nominal width of 8” (203mm). Be sure to mount in a solid part of the block, generally 1″(25 mm) minimum from the side of the block. Do not drill into mortar joints! If plaster/drywall is thicker than 16mm, custom fasteners must be supplied by the installer
- Ensure you receive assistance during installation i.e. in lifting the equipment and also tighten the screws but not over tightening.
- Do not attempt to adjust the spring on bracket (part FF) before mounting, read manual carefully. A replacement will be chargeable.
Ensure you have the following tools before installation
Screwdrivers, pencil, measuring rule, spanner, hammer, hacksaw
Ensure that all parts of the product are included in the product package
- This procedure requires at least two people in order to complete the task i.e. bracket installation. Ensure the supporting surface will be able to support the load that is going to combined load of the equipment.
- In case the equipment is installed next to the fireplace the maximum temperature should never exceed 110° F (43).
- In case the mounting wall is made of wood, then it should include at least two studs. The covering wall should not be more than 16mm thick
- The mantle should never extend mounting surface in more than 356mm.
- The weight of the television should be between 7.5 – 32kg and 40 to 65 inch which should be confirmed by TV owner’s manual
- The wallboard should be shorter compared to the space above the mantle. All this range depends on how far the mantle is stretched. Refer to chart below and add this additional height to wallboard height to determine if space is tall enough.
|If mantle extends:||Required space height:|
|Less than 203mm||TV wallboard height plus 102mm|
|203 – 254mm||TV wallboard height plus 127mm|
|254 – 305mm||TV wallboard height plus 178mm|
|305 – 356mm||TV wallboard height plus 203mm|

The above image is a rough guide for working out the TV drop position, as the VESA holes location on the back of the TV are different from TV to TV..
- Installing the TV wall mount bracket
- Measure the centerline of the mantle and the area found and mark with a tape. It should be 600m above the fireplace.
- Plasterboard walls ONLY – Using the stud finder, locate at least two studs and finding their center using a sharp awl to locate each edge lag bolt should be installed in the center of the studs
- One should ensure there are no big deviations between the holes which need to be 10mm
- In case the wall is concrete, use an expansion pipe. (In order to have a better installation, it is necessary to have in-wall wiring or wall AV and power plates installed to hide the cords behind the wall. We advise you get a professional installer to do this)
- As illustrated take out wallboard, hex bolt screw and spanner from packaging and let the pre-set wire go through the hole
- Take the nuts, front panel, bracket and spanner from installation to assist in installation
- Take out K/EE/FF/N(spanner M10) from the packaging, installation as illustrated in the picture.
- Finally taking out hexagon wrench from packaging lock the four head pan head screws (M8x10) with hexagon wrench use cable ties to up the wires.
- Installing the TV screen and adjusting the spring pressure
- Do selection depending on the TV situation. Pan Head screw +washer; or pan head screw and washer and lock with cross screwdriver.
- Take out Philips pan head screw, handle and connecting rod from the package in accordance with the TV set, adjust to the correct location and then lock with screw driver
