After buying my flat screen 48in plasma tv last year for 2000 dollars I wanted to mount it to my wall. To my surprise the mounting brackets at the time cost around around 150 - 500 dollars. So me and my friend decided to become creative.
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Tools and Parts
-Drill & Drill bits - 20 dollars at pawn shop
-Stud finder - 12 dollars home depot
-Friend to help hold the T.V. - Free
- 3 Ft. of chains - cut in half at home depot - 10 dollars
- Two 90 degree roofing parts - 2 dollars at home depot
- Two eye hooks 4 dollars - home depot
- 4 screw lock chain links -5 dollars home depot
Step 2: MOUNT
Measure out about where you want your t.v. then use the stud finder to locate your studs ( should be about 4 inches from the wall if that is where you decide 2 hang it. Drill holes - Screw in fish eye screws. Connect 90 degree roofing thing to t.v. (yours may connect differently). Connect screw links to t.v. side and ceiling side. Connect the chain to the t.v. first ( makes it easy to hang ). Hang with friend. Enjoy
