What Size Screws Do I Need to Mount a Samsung TV?

To start mounting your Samsung TV to a mounting bracket, you’ll need one of three screw sizes:

  • M4
  • M6
  • M8

The size you’ll need depends on your TV’s screen size. Regardless of size, the screw’s thread pitch should be 1.25 mm, and they should be 43-45mm long to fit through the mounting holes.

Other Ways to Mount a Samsung TV

Mounting the Samsung Frame TV

If you’re mounting a Samsung Frame TV, you’ll be happy to hear you won’t need to purchase a separate wall mount!

The Samsung Frame TV comes with a special wall mount (and all the screws you’ll need) that allows it to sit completely flat against your wall.

Mounting a Samsung TV with Legs

If you have a Samsung TV with legs, like The Serif, you might choose to mount it with the legs attached

Mounting a Samsung TV with the legs attached is a good idea for anyone worried about their TV falling off the wall, like those who live in earthquake zones. If your TV has detachable legs, the screws will be included in the box.

Mounting a Samsung TV to an Entertainment Stand

Some entertainment stands come with a built-in mount for your TV. These give you some extra security while mounting a Samsung TV.

However, if you’re mounting your TV to an entertainment stand, you’ll need to take a couple of extra precautions. Make sure the stand is strong enough to accommodate the weight of your TV and that you have the right-sized screws.
