How to mount the 26" tv on a swivel wall mount?

I have a wall mount that has two holes about five inches apart, vertically.
Do I just screw a machine screw in the back of the TV or what
It is just plastic with no why to but a backing on the other side of it for using a bolt and nut.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,

Tom

My tv is a 42 inch toshiba model#42HL67 im trying to remove the base from the tv so that i can mount my tv


Hi, I have looked into whether or not this t.v. is wall mountable. The only way to tell if this is possible will be to look on the back of t.v. and if wall mounting is possible then there will be 4 screw holes approximately 15 inches apart forming a square. If these " mounting holes are not present then there is no way to mount the wall bracket. Second if holes are present there may be a protective plastic cover at the top of the table top stand where it meets the t.v.. It more than likely is just a snap on type situation and a little bit of prying will pop it off revealing the screws. I hope this has been useful, and thanks for asking FixYa, Good luck- Prodzilla.

How to mount a conia CL3201HDR on the wall, no screws in box and not sure what thread size to purchase.


You need to purchase the wall mount separately. They range from a simple "on the wall" mount to swivels and extending mounts, and can be very expensive for the fancy features.

First, make sure your set is wall mountable. In the center of the rear of the set there will be a square arrangement of bolt holes. I do not know of any newer sets without them, but it does not cost anything to take a look and make sure.

Next, you need to decide on a mount. Personally, I did not want to spend allot, so I found a very inexpensive, yet good quality, "straight" mount at Sears for around $25.00. It does not extend or swivel, but all I wanted was to get it on the wall. Different screws and bolts were supplied with it and I was able to match up what worked for the back of my set.

Now, THE MOST IMPORTANT PART!!!!!

You ABSOLUTELY MUST find where your wall studs are! This is CRITICAL! DO NOT use any kind of expanding bolt to mount your set or it will eventually come loose and FALL!

I had an inexpensive "stud finder" (around $10-15) to show me where the wall studs are... Sears sells them too....You want to bolt your TV wall mount to the studs using 1/4" stud or lag bolts (they look like oversized wood screws) for maximum strength, if your mount will accept bolts that thick. Also use flat washers on the bolts. If your TV mount has its mounting bolt holes too wide apart for bolting to a standard 2" wide stud, mount a 6X6" piece of 1/2 plywood through your wall to the stud, using at least 4 #10 deck screws...it may be overkill, but it will be secure... my personal saying is, "If I can't hang from it, neither can my TV!" This is critical if you want to use a fancy swiveling mount that extends out since it will add stress to where you bolt it to the wall.

My mount was in two pieces.... a section that bolted to my wall, after I mounted a piece of plywood as I described above. This piece has a large pin that sticks up, and the part that mounts to my set (with the screws provided by the manufacturer of the mount) has a receiving hole that slides over the pin. When I need to take my set down, I simply lift it straight up.

I hope my long-winded solution did not bore you, and I wish you the best in hanging your set. Please take a minute and rate my solution.

I'm trying to attach supporting brackets to the rear of an LG SL90 TV. Should I use the same holes used for the supplied table top swivel mount?


Do not use the 4 holes for the table top swivel mount.

You have to use the 4 holes in the middle section on the back of the TV. These four hole are spead futher apart and require larger and shorter screws.

Good Luck.

Looking for wall mount for MLTD2622 26" tv


I had similiar issue with 32 inch...bracket required an adapter which I found through Best Buy. Check out Sanus.com They should give you discription of what you need and tell you where to get it. Adapter was very cheap ($19.00 or so). It is essentially two metal bars that bolt to regular wall mount, the bars will line up with bolt holes on TV.

Attaching 26 " lcd to stud wall


12 inches is the minimum for mounting the unit to the wall. I mounted a 42 inch LCD using a Sanus tilt (non-swivel) mount from Best Buy. We mounted it on wooden beams exactly 12 inches apart. Works great!
