Installing a corner TV bracket to the wall is a good way to make use of corner space. Installing a TV in the corner may seem like a difficult task, but using a corner mount with a swivel arm, you will be able to have the TV mounted and ready to watch within an hour. With no technical knowledge of TV or wall mounts needed, you can save money by mounting your TV yourself, and skipping the professional installation.
Drag a stud finder along the wall surfaces to locate a wooden beam in the corner. Outline the width of the beam on the wall using a pencil. The mount must be installed into a wooden beam (stud) in order to support the weight of the TV.
Hold the base of the wall arm of the TV mount on the wall so the mounting holes are positioned over the stud. Insert the lag bolts that come with the mount through the mounting holes, and tighten them into the wall using a wrench. With at least three lag bolts, the wall arm is mounted to the wall.
Position the TV arm on the back of the TV so its VESA holes align with the TV's VESA holes. VESA holes are standardised to connect the TV to a mount using VESA screws. Screw the VESA screws through the mount to affix it to the TV.
Hold the TV up so the TV arm extends to the wall arm. Insert the security screw through the pivot points of each arm to connect them. Tighten the security screw with a Phillips screwdriver. You may need a second person to lift the TV to its wall bracket, depending on the size of your TV.
