New TV Install
TT 2016 36BHBS Salem
Just installed a new 32" flat screen TV. I did a lot of research on here as to how this should be done. Being unsure of what was in the wall I located 2 studs using a stud finder. The area that I mounted the TV was labeled TV Backer but as near as I could tell, it was not large enough for my purpose.
I then attached a 11" tall by 14" wide oak board to the studs that I located using 1-5/8" coarse thread dry wall screws. I then mounted my articulating TV arm mount using 1" lag screws. Haven't done it yet but plan to attached double-sided velcro strapping to the mount board that can be wrapped around the TV to secure during transport. I hope this may help others in determining how and where to mount their TV.
