Looking back at the horror stories I’ve heard TVs falling from their mounting, I’m still surprised that many people still pay little attention to the entire corner TV wall mount process. From my many years of experience, I’ve discovered that the main culprit is usually the wrong mounting procedure, choosing a substandard or low-quality product, or both.
Using wrong methods to fit a high-quality mount is as bad as using the best skills to fit a poorly crafted device. Other than the TV falling, the wrong product or method may limit the view or free movement, and this undermines the viewing experience and satisfaction.

How to Wall Mount a TV (8 Steps to Wall Mount a TV)
Step 01: Choose The location
Look at the most appropriate place that offers the best viewing angle and doesn’t interfere with movement.
Step 02: Select The Right Level
You should ensure the TV is at the same level with your eyes. You shouldn’t strain your neck, arch or stretch your back to get the best glimpse. The correct level will vary depending on your sitting position and location. For instance, a low seat requires mounting at a lower point while higher-level mounting is required for a high seat, stool, couch, or bed.
Step 03: Choose The Right Mount
We have two types of mounts- tilting and articulating mounts. The former is the most common and can be mounted in varied location. It’s also suitable for heavy TV sets. The latter is much lighter and is most suited for light and small TVs.
Step 04: Select The Best Weight Capacity
The mount should be able to support the TV at hand. Usually, the item will be rated and the rule of thumb is to choose one that has a bigger weight capacity that your TV. A full motion TV wall mount is very flexible and makes varying or tilting the angle easy.
Step 05: Fit Studs
Due to the TV’s heavy weight, you need to make sure that the mount is firmly fixed on the wall. Drywall is not very strong and will crumble sooner than later. Place the studs behind the wall and use a stud finder to locate them. Normally two to three studs are enough for most units.
Step 06: Insert The Mount
After locating the studs using a stud finder, mark the position you want the mount to be. It’s important to drill pilot holes so as to avoid splitting the studs or missing your mark. The drill bit should be a bit thinner than the actual hole. Insert the mount via the included holes and then tighten the bolts or screws using a socket wrench (spanner) or power drill.
Step 07: Attach The TV
After confirming that the mount is secure and tight enough, you can install your TV. Most sets come with included instructions that will guide you through the entire process.
Step 08: Hide The Cables
Once the TV is fitted, hide the cables to improve the appearance. Other than improving functionality, this step also improves the aesthetic appeal.
Mounting a TV, although looking simple, can be a bit of a challenge. Yes, you may have the right mounts but may use the wrong procedure. Alternatively, you may possess lots of experience but may choose a low-quality item. Whichever the situation, the TV viewing experience will be undermined. You may strain self during viewing, it may cause obstruction, or the TV may topple over.
This review is aimed at helping you choose the best products and mount it the right way. I have begun with outlining the important mounting steps and later on listed the top 10 best corner TV wall mounts in 2017. In addition to peace-of-mind, you will also enjoy maximum satisfaction.
