Mounting a TV can be a daunting task for many homeowners. After all, making sure your TV is securely mounted on the wall is crucial to prevent any accidental falling or damage. At Echogear, we believe mounting your TV should be easy and stress-free. In this article, we will walk you through the steps necessary to mount your Samsung 65 inch TV with Echogear equipment, ensuring a safe and enjoyable viewing experience for you and your family.
Why mounting your TV is important
Mounting your TV is not only aesthetically pleasing but also important for your safety. A properly mounted TV not only elevates your viewing experience but also minimizes the risk of accidental falling or damage. In case you have kids or pets, mounting your TV can help prevent the possibility of them knocking it over, causing potential injury to themselves or damage to your electronics. With Echogear’s Samsung 65 inch TV mount, you can be confident that your TV is mounted securely, eliminating any stress or risks.
Another benefit of mounting your TV is that it frees up space in your living room or bedroom. By mounting your TV on the wall, you can eliminate the need for a bulky TV stand or cabinet, creating more floor space and giving your room a cleaner, more streamlined look. This can be especially helpful in smaller living spaces where every inch of space counts.
Additionally, mounting your TV can improve your overall viewing experience. By mounting your TV at the optimal height and angle, you can reduce glare and improve the picture quality, making your favorite shows and movies even more enjoyable to watch. With Echogear’s Samsung 65 inch TV mount, you can easily adjust the angle and height of your TV to find the perfect viewing position.
Safety precautions before mounting your TV
Before you start mounting your TV, ensure you’re taking the necessary precautions to keep yourself and others safe. Firstly, make sure you have a helper who can assist you in holding the TV and mounting equipment, reducing the risk of any accidents. Secondly, turn off any electrical connections to the area where you’ll be mounting the TV to prevent any electrical hazards. Lastly, always use appropriate safety equipment like gloves, goggles or a face mask, especially if you’re cutting or drilling into the wall.
Additionally, it’s important to check the weight and size specifications of your TV and ensure that the mounting equipment you’re using is appropriate for it. Using equipment that is not designed for your TV can result in it falling off the wall and causing damage or injury. It’s also a good idea to check the wall you’re mounting the TV on for any signs of damage or weakness, as this can also increase the risk of accidents. By taking these extra precautions, you can ensure a safe and successful TV mounting experience.
What tools you need to mount your TV with Echogear
To mount your Samsung 65 inch TV with Echogear, you’ll need a few essential tools. These include a power drill, drill bits, a level, a stud finder, a pencil or a marker, a measuring tape, and screws. You’ll also need the mounting hardware which comes with the Echogear mount.
It’s important to note that the type of screws you need will depend on the type of wall you are mounting your TV on. For example, if you are mounting your TV on a drywall, you’ll need drywall anchors to ensure that the mount is securely attached to the wall. On the other hand, if you are mounting your TV on a concrete wall, you’ll need concrete screws. It’s always a good idea to double-check the type of screws you need before starting the installation process.
Measuring and marking the wall for the mount
The first step in mounting your TV is measuring and marking the wall to identify the spot where the mount will be installed. Use a tape measure to determine the ideal height for your TV and mark the wall accordingly. After, use the stud finder to locate the studs within the wall behind the mark. This will ensure the mount is securely anchored to the wall.
It is important to also consider the viewing angle when measuring and marking the wall for the mount. The ideal viewing angle is typically eye level when seated, so take into account the height of your furniture and the distance from the wall to the seating area. This will ensure a comfortable and enjoyable viewing experience.
Choosing the right height for your TV
Choosing the right height for your TV is crucial to enhance your viewing experience. Ideally, the center of the TV screen should be at eye level when you’re sitting on your couch. Use a measuring tape to determine the optimum height and mark the wall accordingly.
It’s also important to consider the distance between your TV and seating area. If your TV is too close, it can cause eye strain and discomfort. A good rule of thumb is to sit at a distance that is at least twice the width of your TV screen. For example, if your TV is 50 inches wide, you should sit at least 100 inches away.
How to install the mount on the wall
Once you’ve determined the spot where the mount will be installed, the next step is to install the mount on the wall. Ensure the mount is levelled and Drill pilot holes on the spots where you’ve marked. Fasten the mount to the wall using screws and bolts, ensuring the mount is securely attached to the wall.
Before you start drilling, it’s important to check the wall for any electrical wires or plumbing pipes that may be hidden behind it. Use a stud finder to locate the studs in the wall, and avoid drilling into them as it may damage the mount or the wall. If you’re unsure about the location of any wires or pipes, consult a professional before proceeding with the installation.
After the mount is securely attached to the wall, it’s time to attach the TV to the mount. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully, and ensure that the TV is properly aligned and levelled. Test the mount and TV by gently pushing and pulling on it to ensure that it’s securely attached to the wall and won’t come loose. Congratulations, you’ve successfully installed your TV mount!
Attaching the mounting plate to your Samsung 65 inch TV
Attaching the mounting plate to your Samsung 65 inch TV is easy. For Echogear’s mount, all you need to do is attach the mounting plate to the back of the TV using the screws provided. Make sure the plate is aligned with the bracket on the wall once the TV is hung.
Before attaching the mounting plate, it is important to ensure that the TV is turned off and unplugged from the power source. This will prevent any electrical accidents from occurring during the installation process.
It is also recommended to have a second person assist with the installation, as the TV can be heavy and difficult to maneuver on your own. This will ensure that the TV is hung securely and safely on the wall.
How to hang and secure your TV onto the wall mount
With the mounting plate attached to the back of your TV, the next step is to hang the TV onto the wall mount. Have your helper hold the TV as you securely attach it to the mount. Once the TV is attached, ensure it is levelled and securely attached using the locking mechanism provided with the Echogear mount.
It is important to note that the weight of your TV should not exceed the weight limit specified by the wall mount manufacturer. Exceeding the weight limit can cause the mount to fail and potentially damage your TV or injure someone. Additionally, make sure to use the appropriate hardware and tools to secure the mount onto the wall, following the manufacturer’s instructions carefully. If you are unsure about any step of the process, it is recommended to seek professional installation services.
Adjusting the viewing angle of your mounted TV

Additionally, the Echogear mount is designed to support a wide range of TV sizes and weights, making it a versatile option for any home theater setup.

Troubleshooting common mounting issues
If you’re experiencing any mounting issues or your TV doesn’t seem to be mounted correctly, double-check that the mount is properly installed and securely attached. If you’re still experiencing problems, refer to the Echogear provided manual or contact their customer support team for further assistance.
Another common issue that may arise during TV mounting is the compatibility of the mount with your TV. Make sure to check the specifications of both the mount and your TV to ensure they are compatible before attempting to mount your TV. Additionally, if you’re mounting your TV on a wall with studs, make sure to locate the studs and use them for secure mounting. Failure to do so may result in the mount coming loose and your TV falling off the wall.
Tips for maintaining your mounted TV’s safety and stability
To maintain your mounted TV’s safety and stability, regularly check to ensure it is securely attached to the wall mount. Avoid applying any pressure or force to the TV, and ensure there’s no chance of anyone accidentally bumping into it.
