How to Mount a Curved TV: Tips and Tricks

If you have a curved back TV like Samsung, you might face some mounting issues. While these TVs are supposed to have a VESA standard, they don’t always follow it, and that can cause problems with mounting. You might notice that the curve is causing the TV to rock back and forth, and it’s not supposed to do that.

Fortunately, Samsung gives spacers to their customers to deal with this issue. However, sometimes the spacers don’t work for everyone, and you might need to purchase additional items. For instance, you might need a 15mm screw to connect with the screws, but Samsung doesn’t provide them. In that case, you can try a 40mm screw, but if it doesn’t fit, you might need to go for a 50mm screw. You can also use some nylon washers to fill the gap and make it tight without pulling it too tight against the TV.

When setting up the mount, you need to hang the top one by the slotted end. The slot needs to be pointed down, so it’s sitting on the base. Then you can put the rest of the piezo thing together. If you have a curved back Samsung TV, you might need to do some extra work unless Samsung starts putting the correct bolts with them. You can try getting 50mm screws and some washers to clear up the difference.

When assembling the mount, you can use metal washers and nylon washers. The nylon washers will provide a little bit of give, so you don’t need to bottom out that screw when you tighten it up. You can tighten the screws up enough to make them snug, but don’t use an electric wrench, as you might not know how snug it is. You can use a Phillips head screwdriver or a bolt head, depending on your preference.

Once you have assembled the mount, you can attach it to the TV. You can make it finger-tight and then use a screwdriver to make it snug. Don’t put too much pressure on it, but make sure it’s tight enough to hold the TV where you want it to be. The curve of the TV can cause some issues, and you might need to use spacers to make it work. You can see how much of a curve there is and how far off it is from the VESA mounts.

In conclusion, mounting a curved TV can be challenging, but with a little bit of extra work and some additional items, you can do it easily. If you have any issues, you can always consult the manufacturer or ask for help online.
