Hi Folks,

Hope everyone's doing well this bank holiday.

I want to ask some advice about a TV I wall mounted.

The 42" TV is mounted with a heavy bracket to a brick wall. I used wooden, custom made plugs. Drilled the wall, inserted the wood and inserted the screws.

the wall seems a little brittle; a couple of the screws seemed a little loose.

Anyway, the bracket tilts and swivels; I can push the tilt feature out but this obviously puts more pressure on the wall.

I've realised that the bracket should turned upside down as the swivel feature is no good as it swivels to the right when we sit on the couch to the left is that makes sense!?

What I'm trying to say is that I have to unscrew the screws and turn the bracket around, and re-screw.

Will this be a problem? will the screws be looser if I do this? and, is there a chance that the TV will have less support if I take the screws out and re-screw??

thanks

modern plastic plugs and resin anchors are far superior to wooden inserts
i assume you have gone for the standard propeller shape :D

Thanks for responding:)

I used plastic plugs for 4 and 2 for wood. the reason I posted is to find out if the screws would become loose if I unscrewed and then re screwed...

What do you think???

You should get just as good a fixing if you unscrew & then re fit.
