Step 1: remove the cables from your TV
First, remove all cables from the TV. This way, you can prevent it from getting caught when you take it off the bracket. Are there devices nearby? Place them at a distance so they don't get in the way.
Step 2: remove the protection
The TV is usually secured to the mount by a protective element. This is a pin or elongated plate that passes through an opening or slot in the bracket. Gently pull it out of the bracket.
Step 3: lift the TV off the mount
With 2 people, lift the television off the mount. Place the TV flat on a sofa or rug. Unscrew the frames of the mount from the TV.
Step 4: remove the mount
First, remove the covers. Next, unscrew the screws from the mount while someone else is holding the mount. You can then remove the mount from the wall and put it away. Are there plugs in the wall? Remove those.
Step 5: close the holes
Put a little putty on a putty knife and press the putty into the holes with the knife. Wipe off the excess with a different, wet putty knife. Once it's dry, sand this part with sandpaper.
