Screws with Round Washers Answered

Do the round washers need to be used when screwing a flat screen TV to the base for tabletop viewing? The washers came with the screws in the small plastic bag.

Where do the washers go? Do you screw them on the end of the screws after you have attached the base? Can you just leave them on the screw as they were in the package before you attach the base?

Washers go between the head of the screw and whatever you're using the screw to mount. What they do is to spread out the force applied by the screw over a larger area. If you choose not to use them, you're quite likely to end up with a former TV lying on the floor in pieces.
