The correct wall-mount kit is essential, whether you are mounting a Samsung computer monitor or a flat-panel TV. Your owner's manual will specify which mounting kit to use for your electronic device, but you will need a few other instructions to successfully wall-mount your Samsung product. This project may take a couple of hours, and it is best to have someone available to help you.

Balance the Samsung appliance on a flat surface. Have another person hold it to keep it steady. Attach the two brackets onto the back with a screwdriver. Use a blanking bracket for a Samsung TV. Check your mounting wall to make sure an electrical socket is available.
Temporarily screw the wall mount to the back of the TV. Measure from the bottom of the TV to the bottom of the wall mount. Measure the full height of the appliance, and add these measurements. Use the total to mark on the wall where the middle of the screen is at your eye level when you are sitting.
Your Samsung appliance must be mounted on wall studs to ensure that it hangs securely. Use a stud finder to locate the appropriate studs. Mark each stud location with a pencil. Check your measurements with a level. Remove the wall mount from the back of your Samsung appliance.
Put the mounting bracket on the wall over the markings you made. Use a level to check the bracket. Drill the wall mount screw holes and put in the screws loosely on each side of the appliance. Check the bracket with a level again. Resume tightening the mounting bracket screws until you cannot move them.
Lift the Samsung appliance with the help of another person if needed, and place the brackets onto the wall mount. Ensure that the appliance is hung securely and that it will move freely if you are using a tilted wall mount. Plug in the appliance.
