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!

We have a 2012 3150 rl fifthwheel.the cabinets above microwave are pulling out of the wall.how can i fix this problem?where are the ancor points in the wall/frame?


Studs in the wall are usually 16 inches apart. If you can locate a screw in the other cabinets, measure over every 16 inches and put in a screw with a large washer at the top part of the cabinet. You can also use brackets above the cabinet if needed. Good luck!

How do you properly hang a mirror in a bathroom on a wall?


1. You should determine where you want the mirror to hang.

2. Make a small, light pencil mark on the wall immediately above the top and center of the mirror.

3. Determine if there is a stud at that location - or is close enough to still be an acceptable location for the mirror. If so, check the back of the mirror and got to step 4 - otherwise skip to step 8.

4. Measure from the top of the mirror to the hook, hanger or high spot of a wire if one is provided running from side to side.

5. Make a mark that is the same distance DOWN from the original mark on the wall.

6. Drive a nail or screw into the wall at the lower mark. Be sure that the nail or screw is long enough to get into the wood stud by at least 1-1/2" or more. Heavy mirrors should have heavy duty nails / screws that go deeper into the wooden stud.

7. Hang the mirror, erase visible marks - Done!


If there is no stud near the desired center location on the wall for the mirror,


8. You'll need to stretch and secure a wire between the left and right-most edges of the mirror - but the left and right-most edges should be at least 16" apart for this to work.

9. Project the mark you made in step 2 onto the closest stud to the left and to the right that you can locate These shouldn't be more than 16" from each other. Measure from the floor up or ceiling down to both of these marks to be sure both are the same height.

10. Perform step 4.

11. Perform steps 5 and 6 for each the two new marks you made in step 9.

12. Perform step 7.

What is the remote learning code for my 32" TV


Hello,

Mounting an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV on the wall may seem a bit overwhelming at first; but it's not that difficult. With a few simple tools, a proper mounting kit and a helper, the job will be a breeze. With a little bit of patience and an hour or two, your LCD TV will look great. Follow these steps to learn how to mount an LCD TV on the wall.

Things You'll Need:
LCD TV
Mounting kit
Tools
Step 1
Find the best spot on the wall to mount the LCD screen. Think about how much room you may want on that wall, especially if you plan on mounting speakers, too. You could hang a poster or picture relative to the size of the television on the wall to see if you like the placement.

Step 2
Pick a mounting kit. You can purchase mounting kits online (see Resources below) along with many other sites. Look to make sure the kit and TV are VESA compatible so that you have standard measurements and quick, easy attachment during the mounting process.

Step 3
You may already have tools needed to mount the TV. You'll need a set of screwdrivers, a socket set, a saw capable of cutting into drywall, a drill and a measuring tape. Having a stud finder with a built-in level is also great to pinpoint the exact location of the stud. The stud finder will be useful if you'll be running wires through the wall.

Step 4
Get the location for the TV picked out. Check near the bottom of the wall to see if the area you plan on using to run the wires is free of obstructions. Using the stud finder for this will make it easy.

Step 5
Find the studs. You should use at least one stud when mounting the LCD screen to make sure that the mounting bolts are driven into something solid that will support the weight of the TV and the mounting bracket. Using two studs is ideal for mounting larger TV's, those with screens larger than 37 inches. Use a pencil to mark the drill holes for the anchors and stud location.

Step 6
Secure the mounting rails to the back of the LCD screen. Double check them for proper fit. Make sure that they're hidden behind the body of the television for a finished look.

Step 7
Cut the hole for the wires to come through by using a drywall saw. The easiest way is to pull them out at the electrical box. This avoids having to go into the basement, closet or otherwise. You can purchase a wall box at your local home improvement store to place in the exit hole of the wires.

Step 8
Drill the holes for the bolt anchors in the locations that you measured and marked previously. Place the bolt anchors into the holes and tap them in with a hammer.

Step 9
Secure the wall mount to the wall. You'll need a socket wrench to ensure that the mounting bolts get snugged down tightly to the anchors. Use a level to make sure you've done an even job.

Step 10
Grab a friend or family member to help you lift the LCD screen onto the mount. Make sure it's locked down tightly and the screen is set to go.

Hope this helps and Good luck

What indicates the black arrow mark in 16inches,32inches,64inches in steel measuring tape


Typical framing is laid out on 16 inch centers. Example: the studs in a framed wall are 16 inches apart which gives the required strength and allows drywall to break at a stud when it is installed. Drywall sheets are 8 foot or 12 foot, if the framing is on 16 inch centers then the drywall will end at a stud. The tape measure is highlighted at multiples of 16 inches to make it easy to mark the studs when laying out the framing.

Instalation Instructions for Frigidaire Over the Range Microwave 850 Watt Model #FMT118EPB


HI,

Frigidaire makes several over-the-range microwave models that are all installed in the same manner. To install correctly, you must have at least 45 1/2 inches from the bottom of the top cabinet to the cooking surface of the stove to provide enough clearance for the microwave. The top cabinet must also be at least 30 inches wide and 12 inches deep. Find someone to help you, then follow the steps below to install your Frigidaire microwave.

Things You'll Need:
  • Stud finder or hammer
  • Screwdriver
  • Drill
Instructions

Pull your range away from the wall so you can work comfortably. If this is not possible, cover it with a drop cloth. Find and mark the locations of the studs in the wall behind the range. They will be either 16 or 24 inches apart.

Follow the instructions on the wall template to mark the location of the mounting bracket and the four anchor holes on the wall and the bottom of the cabinet. Drill the anchor holes. Follow the instructions on the top cabinet template to mark and drill the two holes in the bottom of the cabinet.

Attach the mounting bracket to the wall studs using the six wood screws included with your microwave. Screw the toggle nuts onto the toggle bolts and push one through each of the four drilled holes. Screw each toggle bolt until the nut is snug against the inside of the wall.
Pick up the oven with your helper. Plug the oven into the outlet and slide the oven onto the mounting bracket arms. Push the oven back against the wall. Tighten the two screws on the microwave faceplate to fasten the microwave to the mounting bracket arms.
Attach the louver to the top of the microwave with the three provided screws. Insert the two top cabinet screws and washers from the top cabinet into the microwave and fasten tightly.

Take care.

Need to hang a shelf to a wall with metal studs?


In order to support any true weight (like books) you will need to use wood blocking between the metal studs. Measure space between the studs, cut blocks to fit and mount at location where brackets will be.

For lighter weight applications, you can use an expansion anchor (but not the cheep little plastic ones that are often provided). A common name for this anchor would be a "molly anchor" and they are available at all hardware stores in a variety of capacities.
