You want to hang your television close to the wall with the BlueBuilt pivotable wall mount 32-55 inches. On this page, you can read how to do this step by step.

Before you start

Recommended number of people: 2
Suitable surface: solid brick or solid concrete
Before you start drilling: use the wall scanner to check if there aren’t any cables or pipes behind the wall

What do you need?

What do you need

In the box

  1. TV frames
  2. Screws, washers, spacers for the TV, and spirit level
  3. Mold
  4. Screws and plugs for the wall
  5. Wall mount
  6. Covers
  7. Protector
  8. Velcro for your cables

What do you need to add yourself?

  4. 5mm drill
  5. 10mm drill
  6. Pencil
  7. Hammer
  8. Tape measure
  9. Impact drill or concrete drill
  10. Rug

You'll be left with several screws when you're done with the installation. This is because it includes components for different TV sizes.

Step 1: placing the frames

Placing frames

Place your TV on a rug and place the TV frames (1) on your TV as shown in the picture.

Check bags A through F to see which screw fits your TV. You only need 1 set.

Step 2: mounting the frames

Mounting frames

Secure 1 screw. Extra space? Place a washer (G) or spacer (H or I) in between.

Now secure the 3 remaining screws in the same way.

Step 3: marking

Marking

Draw an X on the wall where the middle of your TV is supposed to be.

Place the mold (3) on the wall so you can see the X you've just drawn in the marker, then draw the drill holes using the spirit level (J).

Step 4: drilling

Drilling

Drill with precision by first using the 5mm drill, and then the 10mm drill. Drill as deep as the screws are in length (4).

Hammer the plugs (4) in.

Step 5: installing the mount

Installing mount

Secure the wall mount (5) to the wall with the washers (4) in between. Use the spirit level for accuracy.

Click the covers (6) onto the wall mount.

Lift the TV with 2 people and attach it to the wall mount.

Step 6: securing the mount

Securing mount

Slide the protector (7) into the opening at the bottom of the frames.

Done! Pat yourself on the back, turn on the TV, and crash down onto the couch.
