The TV box has the same shape, cardboard is thick but does not stand much weight.
Therefore we must strengthen it.
Reinforcements I used was thick cardboard angles, like palletized loads side shields.
You can also use cardboard tubes.

La caja del televisor tiene la forma del mismo, es de carton grueso pero no resiste mucho peso.
Por lo tanto hay que reforzarla.
Como refuerzos utilice angulos de carton grueso, tipo protecciones laterales de cargas palletizadas.
Tambien puede usarse tubos de carton.

To install the reinforcement, should be measured inside the box, cutting to the right measure.
We cut a tab in the box to each end, so embeds shut.
Install two patches on the front upright, and one in the upper back horizontally.
Assemble everything with carpenter's glue.

Para instalar los refuerzos, se debe medir el interior de la caja, cortandolos a  la medida justa.
Debemos cortar una pestaña en la caja para cada punta, asi encastra al cerrarla.
Instalar dos refuerzos en el frente de manera vertical, y uno en la parte trasera superior de manera horizontal.
Armar todo con mucho pegamento de carpintero.
