Vertical and horizontal correction

  1. Vertical correction: If the screen is used in its vertical home position and the screen is not vertically levelled: tighten / loosen the adjustment screw Ⓢ with an allen key Ⓟ until the screen is vertically leveled.
  2. Horizontal correction: If one side of the TV is lower than the other, slightly loosen the bottom interface bolt Ⓠ with an allen key Ⓟ. Level the TV and check with a spirit level on top of the TV. Tighten the interface bolt Ⓠ again.

Tilt to avoid reflections

  1. Gently pull the top of the screen forward, to adjust the tilt angle. You do not need to adjust anything with a tool or unlock anything.
  1. Does tilting not feel smooth or does your TV not stay in its tilted position? You can adjust this with an allen key Ⓟ! If your TV comes forward too easily, turn in the direction of the +. If tilting feels too heavy, turn in the direction of the -.

Do not force the screen backward.

Guide your cables

  1. Guide the cables through the cable clips Ⓜ.
  2. Click the cable clips Ⓜ over the arms.

Removing your TV

  1. Unplug the cables from your TV.
  2. Remove the bottom interface bolt Ⓠ and loosen the upper interface bolt Ⓠ.
  3. Lift your TV off of the wall mount Ⓐ, and put it down somewhere safe.

Did it work?

 

Confused? Unsure? Going crazy?

There’s plenty of help waiting for you, online:

 

Simple troubleshooting

Found a problem you can’t fix? Don’t panic… try these!

Problem

Cause

Solution

Problem

‘There are stains on the arms of the wall mount’

Cause

The stains are caused by the paper pulp interior in the box. We decided to reduce the amount of plastic in the packaging and therefore there is no plastic bag around the product anymore to prevent from some paper dust on the product. So, these stains might occur.

Solution

The stains are easy to remove with a cloth.

Problem

‘I don’t have the right bolts for my TV!’

Cause

The world of TV technology is always changing – it can be hard to keep up sometimes. So, it might be the case that the correct bolt size is not included… you’re just too advanced!

Solution

Just ask Vogel’s Consumer Care to request a service kit, and we’ll send everything you need. Click here to contact Vogel's Consumer Care.

Problem

‘I have a lot of leftover bolts, is something wrong?’

Cause

No, you did it very well! You only need 4 bolts to install the mount to your TV. Because of all the different types of TVs, we have included the most common sizes for the most sold TVs.

Solution

Don’t waste the other bolts, save them!

You can use them for another TV when you buy a new one or use it elsewhere.

Problem

‘My wall screws have snapped!’

Cause

You might not be drilling deep enough… or your drill could be too blunt, so that the hole is too narrow and the screw gets stuck.

Solution

Use another hole in the wall plate to fix the wall mount to the wall. Make sure you use a sharp drill of the correct size. Vacuum the hole after drilling. Check if the entire screw (except its head) fits in the hole before placing the plugs.

Problem

‘My cover is stuck!’

Cause

If the space between your wall and your wall mount is a little too tight, things can get tricky to reach.

Solution

Push a small screwdriver between wall and wall mount to push the snap hooks down to release.

 

FAQs

‘Where can I request the correct bolts for my TV (a service kit)?’

Whatever you need, simply contact your local Vogel's dealer or Vogel's. Click here to contact Vogel's Consumer Care.

‘Where can I find installation videos?’

Click or tap the button on the front page of this manual. The installation video can be found at the product page of your product on our website. It can also be found on our YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/c/VogelsForSure

‘How high do I need to hang my TV?’

The center of your TV should ideally be positioned at eye level, while seated. The result is dependent on the location of the holes on the back of your TV. After attaching the strips to the TV, determine the distance between the center of the TV and the center of the wallplate. This helps you determine where to drill your first hole. Download and use the free DrillRight app to determine the height of the TV and to mark the first hole.

‘How high do I need to hang my TV in case of a tilt mount?’

When a wall mount with tilt function is used, your TV can be mounted above eye level.

‘Which bolts or screws do I need to use?’

Use all wall screws and four bolts for securing your TV. Vogel's offers a complete assembly kit with all mounting materials included in the box, for both your TV and wall. You need four bolts to attach the mount to the TV, and three or four screws for the wall (dependent on your model). Do you miss the correct bolts for your TV? Please contact your local Vogel's dealer. Click here to contact Vogel's Consumer Care.

‘Why do you use Fischer© plugs?’

The Fischer© DuoPower plug is widely regarded as the best standard in plugs. Don’t settle for less!

‘What is VESA?’

VESA is a standard pattern of mounting location holes on the back of a TV which allows many standard TV mounts to be easily fitted to your TV.
