Many wall mounting kits will include all the screws you need to get the job done. But if yours didn’t include hardware or you lost the original screws, it’s easy to find an exact replacement. 

Why is VESA Pattern Important?

Your TCL TV’s VESA pattern refers to the layout of the mounting holes on the back of your television. 

VESA is a standardized series of patterns that make it easy to attach your TCL TV to any mount. As long as a mount supports your TV’s weight and VESA pattern, you can use it to mount your TV.

TCL does things a little bit differently, but in many other cases, simply knowing your VESA pattern will let you know which screw size is appropriate:

  • Under 200×200: M4 screws.
  • 200×200 to 400×400: M6 screws.
  • Over  400×400: M8 screws.

What Type of Wall Mount Can I Use to Mount a TCL TV?

As long as a mount can support your TV’s VESA pattern and weight, you can mount your TCL TV on it. There are a few different categories to look into, including:

  • Fixed wall mounts. These hold your TV in one stationary location. They don’t move, tilt, or swivel.
  • Tilt wall mounts. These mounts hold your TV in one place but allow you to tilt the screen up or down to account for the amount of glare in a room. 
  • Turn wall mounts. Also known as full-motion wall mounts, these give you the freedom to turn, raise, or lower your TV as needed.

Can I Mount a TCL TV on My Own?

With today’s tools and technology, virtually anyone can successfully mount a TV on their own. But if you’re worried about taking on the job alone, hiring a professional is always an option.

Many electronics stores, and even some online retailers, will offer mounting services when you purchase a TV or wall mount for a small additional fee.
