  3. Connect the clamps fixed onto the TV and the clamps fixed onto the wall with a strong cable and then tie the string tightly.

Verify all connections are properly secured. Periodically check the connections for any sign of fatigue or failure. If you have any doubt about the security of your connections, contact a professional installer.

Install the TV close to the wall so that it does not fall.

It is safe to connect the string so that the clamps fixed on the wall are equal to or lower than the clamps fixed on the TV. Untie the string before moving the TV.
