I needed to wall mount my PlayStation to stop my 7 month old trying to pull it down whenever he could and looked for a simple wall mount on line and the majority of Wall mounts being over engineered and costing up and over of £40. There was also a lack of choice so I thought I would just make one myself. It came in just over £5.

Step 1: Tools and Materials

Time Needed:

30 minutes at most.

Tools needed:

Pliers

Screw Driver

Drill (hammer drill if brick or concrete wall)

5mm Drill Bit

Spirit Level

Materials:

75 mm Corner Brace x 4

Sheet of Self Adhesive Furniture Felt

If Concrete/Brick work; 5 x 20 mm wall plug with screw to match x 8

If Plaster Board; Plasterboard anchor and screw to match

Step 2: Method

Method:

  1. The PlayStation is 53 mm in depth so bend your Corner brace with around 58-60 mm space.
  2. Once you've bent all 4 braces you can cut lengths of felt and line the brace as pictured above.
  3. using a spirit level mark and drill the bottom sets of holes for the braces that will be holding the PlayStation.
  4. Mount the bottom braces and ensure they are level so that the top braces will be easier to measure and drill.
  5. Measure to ensure you have a snug fit to the top of the PlayStation and drill the next set of holes.
  6. mount the top braces and slide the PlayStation 4 in.
  7. If the PlayStation seems a little loose you could add pressure to the top braces and remount them thus gripping the PlayStation.

Please note; I know this isn't the most ascetically pleasing wall mount and this could be improved with heat shrink but I prefer function over ascetics.

<p>I just made this a couple of days ago and it works awesome. Even though i didn't have the propper tools to bend the corner braces it still worked out wonderful. Cheers! Could you tell me how you did the make over too? I'm especially wondering how you did those stunning Details. </p>
Sorry, I only just notice someone commented on my instructible. basically it's all designed online then uploaded to a company called gel skin. but if you live in the UK stay well away. I paid close to &pound;15 in charges to receive the package. That's also after 2 months.
<p>Started gathering materials and out of all the places found for braces, it seems poundland actually do the best deal by far and sell exactly what you need for the corner braces, a 3 pack for &pound;1. As for the felt, im going to go with a sheet of self adhesive foam and got a sheet of that at hobbycraft. Cheers for the guide, hoorah to paying &pound;2.80 rather than &pound;20+!</p>
<p>Ebay has a variety of wallmounts, and vertical mounts, but IMO, it's a joy to make something like that, myself :) I'm making my own gaming corner, with my PS2, 3 and 4, mounted on the side of the cabinet/desk for my desktop :)</p><p>I'd paint them black, for stealthiness, but otherwise, it looks good :)</p>
<p>at the time thier was very few reasonable mounts on ebay (co.uk). The game corner sound awesome, are you making the brackets yourself? I know mine is crude in design but I don't have the time or the tools anymore since my son was born.</p><p>as for painting I agree with making it stealthy but as you can see my ps4 has had its own makeover and I didn't know what I was doing so kept it silver.. Its kinda grown on me now haha.</p>
<p>Sorry for late answer :) My gaming corner is delayed at unknown time :( I was supposed to move out, from my mom's, but the apartment was sold - No move-in-decoration for me so far. I have thought about the wallmounts, and I'm either going with a cheap ebay knockoff, or making it out of wood, or doing as yourself by finding an easy and simple solution :) cheers</p><p>BTW. English isn't my native language, as I'm from Denmark, hope you understand ;)</p>
<p>I think it looks great. Function is key!</p>
