        Once you have decided on a location, place the bracket base against the wall and mark the installation point using your level guide and pencil.
      2. Select a Wall mounting style.
        Choose between two installation methods: Standard, which creates space between the wall and the TV, or Slim, which brings the TV closer to the wall. With Slim mount, the TV feels integrated into the wall, allowing for a more streamlined appearance. The installation process differs depending on the mounting style.
        IMPORTANT:
        Regardless of which style you select, all cables must be connected to the TV prior to installation.

    Wall mounting precautions

    • The wall should be capable of supporting a weight of at least four times the TV weight.
    •  Be sure to use the supplied screws and attachment parts properly. If you use substitute items, the TV may fall and cause bodily injury to someone or damage to the TV.
