Default Mounting question for new 4k TV - 11-29-2016, 06:05 | posts: 1,030 | Location: east coast

Hey all. Just recently purchased a new Samsung 4k TV. And I have an older TV stand with a rear swivel mount that uses this type of adapter:

In looking at the TV's installation pdf, it provides two (2) threaded wall mount adapters (spacers) ONLY for the upper 2 mounting locations on the back of the TV (standard Vesa 400x400 setup). Link here.

I have no worries about the stand holding the TV, as it's currently holding a 90 lb plasma without issue (the ks8000 is half that). What I'm curious about is what kinds of issues I may run into when attaching the vertical monitor brackets to the TV using the (nearly) 2 inch long spacers just on the top mounts of a TV this narrow:

I know I have some extra long screws that came with the swivel mount (and if I don't, I can easily purchase some). I just wonder if once I attach the brackets, will the screws extend far enough into the upper mounting holes to be safe (no, I don't yet have the spacers to measure), or will the TV then be tilted overly forward with these huge adapters for a barely noticeable curve of the back of the set?

If anybody has any experience with mounting this kind of set to a wall mount or stand with this type of bracket and could give me some advice, I'd appreciate it.

I have the same as you only it's the 7 series. From what I've read the back panel has a tendency to start to loosen up after a while. Not sure if this applies to the 8 and 9 series too but I'd make sure I know what I'm doing before mounting anything. For me it's natural that you attach the TV to four connectors on the back and not just two.

For the record mine is on a bench and not mounted.

Hmm.... after looking at that pdf, it seems I was mistaken about only using 2 spacers. It looks like you do indeed have to use 4.

Either way, I guess I'll wait and see when it arrives. I'm not too worried about it.

Hi OP, how do you like the TV? I just ordered the same model myself and waiting for it to be delivered.

You should have 4 plastic spacers that come with the tv.
With those I used 4x 45mm m8 button heads to fasten the vesa mount.

Congrats, Nice TV. Glad you didn't get curved. Curved cant be put on a wall,

And probably wont fit in the wall unit you bought. gl
