In this blog, we’ll take you through the necessary steps for dismounting your TV from the wall.

Step 1: Gather your tools.

Step 2: Unplug your TV

The first step is to unplug your TV from the power outlet. This will prevent any electrical shock or damage to your TV during the dismounting process.



Step 3: Remove the mount covers

Next, locate the mount covers that are covering the screws that hold your TV to the wall mount. Use your screwdriver to remove the screws, and then gently remove the mount covers.

Step 4: Remove the safety straps

If your TV mount has safety straps, remove them by unclipping them from the wall mount and TV. These straps are designed to prevent the TV from falling off the mount, so make sure you remove them carefully.

Step 5: Remove the TV from the mount

Once the screws and safety straps are removed, gently lift the TV off the wall mount. Be sure to have a second person help you lift the TV off the mount, as it can be quite heavy.
