How do you mount a plasma to a wall

Hi hope this is in the right place.
I'm looking at putting a 50 inch plasma on a solid wall.
Iv had a look around and can pick one up fairly cheap.
My questions are when the bracket is on the wall how does the plasma secure to it?
I have noticed on the back there are bolt holes do I need to purchase some bolts seperate or do they come with the brackets normally?
Also what ways are there to hide the wires? Without ripping out the plaster.

I don't know much about this thing so wanted to make sure
Thanks Kate x

There's typically 2 metal strips that screw into the back of the tv, then there is a part that you attach to the wall. The tv will either hang or slide onto the wall fixture.
If in doubt get someone in to do the job. Might cost a little but it means the tv won't fall down.
If you look at John Lewis there's a very good wall cable tidy. Item number 89825012. Would link to it but Im on my phone.

Looking through my TVs Manual it said the tv needs to be 100mm from the wall erm will most brackets be at least that?

Don't worry it will be fine
You can't really make it out but there is some white trunking hidden behind the speaker containing all the wires to tv

Oh right cool.
Can you dimmer them? Change colour ect will take a look later on
Yeah you can adjust brightness and pretty much make any colour you want.

Brilliant looks very stylish
do you put them on all 4 sides or just top and bottom?
The strip comes with a sticky back side so you just stick around the perimeter of the tv. A 5m strip goes right around a 65 inch tv with some to spare

Alphason ABR1100-B TV Stands

I'm actually waiting on one I designed to be made for me by a local joiner

Similar to the one I found.
So your going with a light oak finish, that will look neat.
Have you got your quote?
