Purchased a 51 inch Samsung plasma. Need to know how to remove the locking base from the back of the tv.
I have all 4 screws are out however it still seems to be locked in place.There is a small rectangular hole on the left hand side with a padlock symbol beside it that I assume is to unlock whatever tab is hold the guide stand to the tv right now.. but I am stumped by how to make it work.

please please help

I finally jammed a flat screwdriver on top of the guide stand and wedged the guide stand down. The rectangular hole does nothing. There are 2 clips on the top of the guide stand that go into the tv. The guide stand just needs to be pushed with a downwards force.

Hope this explanation helps.

the holes for the kensington padlock to stop someone casually walking off with it.
(more for laptops tbh)
