Whether you’re using an existing or new construction, this guide will make the process easy.
So whether you’re an amateur DIYer or just looking to save some money by doing it yourself, read on for tips and tricks. Happy mounting!
1. Materials you will need
- Electric drill
- Drywall anchors (if drywall is not in the same plane)
2. Measure and Identify: measure:
- Determine the distance between two studs
- Measure the width of projector screen, add 3 inches for patience, and cut the drywall to size with your measurements.
- Measure the height of the projector screen, less than 1 inch for patience, and cut the drywall to size with your measurements
2. Measuring your projector screen:
To mount a projector screen on drywall, you will need to measure the width and height of the screen.
For example, say your projector screen is 84 inches wide by 52 inches high. You then would add 3 inches for patience so that the final measurements would be 87×55.
If you are using an existing construction simply measure between two studs that are 17 inches apart.
If you are using new construction, then there should be no need to use drywall anchors unless the space between studs is not in the same plane.
3. Making pilot holes:
Once you have your measurements, mark pilot holes onto the back of the drywall.
You want to poke small holes with your drill so you can insert a nail or screw into it, which is what will become your pilot hole.
Be sure to keep your drill level while making these holes.
4. Inserting the anchors:
After you have made your pilot holes, insert the drywall anchors into each one.
Once this process is complete, simply screw in your screws until they are flush with the wall.
5. Mounting your screen:
When you are ready to mount your projector screen, simply hang it on the screws and enjoy!
