No matter what your wall is made of, be it concrete or wood you are perfect. The first thing to do is:

  1. If concrete wall hold, TV wall mount, LOCKET MODEL R2, against the wall and make six marks where you would install the screws.
  2. On your concrete wall, drill six holes where the marks were made, all with a 10 mm diameter and hole dept of 60mm.
  3. Install screw anchors into the drilled spots of the wall. Then secure the TV wall mount to the wall using screws and washers taken from the package provided.

If your wall is made of wood you are also covered. There are similar steps to follow with only some very little modifications.

  1. If mounting on wood stud walls, identify where the studs are, then make four marks on the wall where you would install the screws.
  2. On the side of the wood studs, drill four holes on the marked spots, but with a 5mm diameter and the same 60mm dept.
  3. Secure the TV wall mount to the wall using screws and washers taken from the package provided.

The plastic cover will keep your wall in a neat state, covering all screws on the wall plate and help the mount blend as part of the wall.

Step 3: ATTACH MOUNTING PLATES ON TV

Connect the mounting plates to back of your TV using four screws, depending on the size of VESA holes on the back of your TV and washers.

If the screws are too long for the mounting hole or there is indention in the back of your TV, you can use the extension washers between the mounting plates and washers.

Step 4: HANG TV ON WALL PLATE
