How to Install a Simplicity Wall Mount

Wall TV Mount Installation

Despite the name, Simplicity can mount wall mounts more complicated than most other brands, but the task is still manageable when doing it yourself. Simplicity TV wall mounts installation allow you to view your TV from different angles, make sure you always have the best seat in the house. Having a flat screen TV you can bump the style and save extra space by getting rid of the bulky entertainment center and assembling your TV on the wall.


  1. Find two studs using a stud finder. Mark the location of the studs with a pencil. Check the presence of a stud by hammering a nail into the wall just deep enough to feel the stud.
  2. Hold the holder on the wall and place the level on the top of the mountain to make sure it’s right. Align the holes of the mountain along the stud marks and mark their locations with a pencil.
  3. Drill the mount hole marks to a depth of 2 1/2 inches.
  4. Fasten the wall plate using the fastening bolts and washers, tighten the bolts with a wrench; not too tight them.
  5. Place the arm of the mount between the horizontal hooks along the wall plate and secure it with the bolts and washers.
  6. Place the clips in the monitor holders so that the “V” shape in each clip opens to the large holes. Make sure that the Allen screw is facing the open part of the bracket. Secure all four clamps into place using the 2-inch lock bolts and quarter notes. The clamps must rotate up and down.
  7. Thread a bolt into the insertion opening at the back of the television to determine how large bolt is required.
  8. Place the short bolt through the flat ring, the spacer cap, the monitor bracket, the corresponding spacer and into the TV.
  9. Place the center holder in the middle of the television and slide the two cross tubes through the holes in the side middle supports. When the tubes are in place, turn each clamp with an Allen key.
  10. Lift the TV instead of sliding the center bracket on the arm. You will hear a click when the lock tab clicks. Put the mountain by placing the small safety screw in the hole in the arm near the adjustment knobs.
