When it comes to mounting your TV, you want to make sure you have the right size bolts. Not all televisions use the same size bolts, and if you don’t have the right size, your TV could end up falling and breaking. In this article, we’ll show you what size bolts you need to mount your TV, so you can be sure your television is safe and secure.
What You Need to Know About Bolt Sizes
There are a few things you need to know about finding the right size bolts for your TV. The size of the bolts you need will depend on the size of the TV. The bolts also need to be the right length so that they can go through the TV mount and into the wall. If the bolts are too long, they could protrude from the back of the TV and be a tripping hazard. If the bolts are too short, they might not be able to go through the TV mount or they might not be long enough to reach the wall.
Standard Bolt Sizes
There are two types of standard bolt sizes, numbered and lettered. Numbered bolts range in size from 0 (the smallest) to 12 (the largest). Lettered bolts will be either SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) or metric. SAE bolts range from A (the smallest) to Z (the largest), while metric bolts range from T (the smallest) to Y (the largest).
Metric Bolt Sizes
Metric bolts are sized according to diameter, length and pitch, which is the distance between the threads. The most common sizes are listed below. For example, a “M10 x 1.5 x 25” bolt has a 10 mm diameter, is 1.5 mm pitch and is 25 mm long. The head size will be listed separately.
How to Measure the Size of a Bolt
Bolts are categorized by diameter, length and thread pitch. The diameter is the distance across the bolt, measured at the widest point. To measure the diameter of a bolt, you will need to use a pair of calipers. The length of the bolt is the distance from under the head to the end of the bolt. To measure the length of a bolt, you will need to use a ruler or tape measure. The thread pitch is the distance between threads on the bolt. To measure the thread pitch of a bolt, you will need to use a thread pitch gauge.
Measuring the Diameter of a Bolt
If you’re not sure what size bolts you need to mount your TV, there are a few ways to measure the diameter of a bolt. The most common way is to measure the distance across the widest part of the bolt head, from one side to the other. This is called the “bolt circle diameter” (BCD).
You can also measure the distance between the centers of two adjacent bolts, known as the “pitch circle diameter” (PCD). Bolt sizes are usually given in terms of both BCD and PCD.
Another way to measure a bolt is by its thread count, or “tpi” (threads per inch). This is especially important when matching bolts to existing threads, such as when replacing a damaged bolt. To measure thread count, simply count the number of threads within one inch of the bolt.
You can also use a ruler or calipers to measure the diameter of a bolt, but this isn’t always accurate. The best way to be sure you have the right size bolts is to take one (or more) of your old bolts with you to the hardware store when you go to buy new ones.
Measuring the Length of a Bolt
There are two main ways to measure the length of a bolt – from the top of the head to the end of the shank, or from under the head to the end of the shank. The first way is more accurate, but the second way is easier if you don’t have a ruler or caliper handy.
To measure from the top of the head, you’ll need to:
-Find a flat surface to rest the bolt on
-Place a ruler or caliper on the flat surface next to the bolt, with the zero mark at the top of the bolt head
-Measure from the flat surface to the end of the shank – make sure to measure at a 90 degree angle!
To measure from under the head, you’ll need to:
-Find a flat surface to rest the bolt on
-Place a ruler or caliper on the flat surface next to the bolt, withthe zero mark atthe bottom ofthe bolt head
-Measure fromthe flatsurface upto wherethe shank ends – again, make sureto measureat a 90 degreeangle!
To sum it up, the answer to the question “what size bolts do you need to mount your TV” is that it depends on the weight and size of your TV. The bigger and heavier your TV is, the bigger the bolts you will need. If you have a small, lightweight TV, you can probably get away with using small bolts, but if you have a large, heavy TV, you will need to use large bolts. In general, it is always better to err on the side of caution and use bigger bolts than you think you will need. That way, you can be sure that your TV will be properly mounted and secure.
