Flat Screen Installation Tips

Flat Screen Do's & Don'ts
  • The plasma is heavy. At least two people are required to carry this equipment.
  • When lifting the TV Floor Stand, please don't lift it by holding its two vertical tubes as these tubes simply insert into the base of the stand and are not permanently attached to it.
  • Please be sure to place the plasma floor stand on an even floor – uneven ground will cause the plasma to become dangerously unstable with the potential of tipping over.
  • Do not mount a TV on plasterboard UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Plasterboard is not strong enough for a plasma TV. For plasterboard mounting use a smaller LCD TV.
  • Ensure the plasma TV screen is insured for accidental damage.
  • Ensure your wall is either brick or concrete. Concrete is ideal, as the mounts will will work well in this situation. Using brick can make the bolts which hold the TV move after installation. It can still work fine but is something you must be aware of.
  • Decide where to put your TV cables. Using white tubing for your TV cables is ideal.

  1. Setup the plasma floor stand on an even surface.
  2. With the help of another person, lift the plasma and the mounting bracket (already attached to the plasma TV) and place it on the plasma floor stand by aligning the 4 buttons on the mounting bracket with the 4 slots of the plasma floor stand. Lower the safety latch on the mounting bracket to secure the plasma, making sure latch is completely engaged. Plug in the power cord and the video source and you are ready to enjoy your show.

Make sure the plasma is not tilted to the side or up/down. Plasma needs to be at an upright position at all times.
