How to Use the iPhone Measure App for a Perfectly Straight TV Mount

Mounting a TV can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to ensuring it’s perfectly level. A crooked TV can be an eyesore and can affect your viewing experience. Traditionally, you’d use a spirit level or laser level to get it right, but what if you don’t have one handy? Don’t worry; there’s a simple and effective hack using your iPhone’s Measure app to ensure your TV is mounted straight. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process step-by-step and show you how Condomounts’ innovative solutions can make your TV mounting experience seamless.

Why a Level TV Mount Matters

Before diving into the hack, let’s understand why it’s crucial to have a level TV mount:

  1. Aesthetic Appeal: A level TV enhances the overall look of your living space. It ensures your setup looks professional and clean.
  2. Viewing Comfort: A tilted TV can cause strain on your neck and eyes, leading to discomfort during long viewing sessions.
  3. Safety: An uneven mount can put stress on certain parts of the TV or the mount itself, potentially causing damage over time.

Introducing the iPhone Measure App

The Measure app is a built-in tool on iPhones that uses augmented reality (AR) to measure objects and spaces. It’s typically used for measuring distances and dimensions, but with a bit of creativity, it can also serve as a level.

Step-by-Step Guide to Using the Measure App for TV Mounting

  1. Prepare Your Tools and TV Mount:

    • Have your Condomounts TV mount ready along with the necessary tools.
    • Ensure your iPhone is updated to the latest iOS version for optimal performance of the Measure app.
  2. Open the Measure App:

    • Locate the Measure app on your iPhone and open it.
    • Calibrate the app by following the on-screen instructions. This usually involves moving your phone around to allow it to recognize the space.
  3. Activate the Level Function:

    • Tap on the “Level” option at the bottom of the screen. Your iPhone will now function as a digital level.
  4. Mount Your TV Bracket:

    • Begin the process of attaching your Condomounts TV bracket to the wall or pillar. Secure the bracket loosely so you can make adjustments.
  5. Check for Level:

    • Place your iPhone on top of the TV bracket. The Measure app will show you whether it’s level or not. Adjust the bracket until the app indicates a level position (0 degrees).
  6. Secure the Mount:

    • Once you’ve achieved a level position, tighten the screws on your TV mount. Double-check the level to ensure it hasn’t shifted during the tightening process.
  7. Attach Your TV:

    • Carefully mount your TV onto the bracket. Use the Measure app one more time to verify the TV itself is level.

Additional Tips for a Perfect TV Mount

  • Hide the Cables: Use cable management solutions to keep your setup clean and tidy. Condomounts offers accessories that help with this.
  • Double-Check Measurements: Measure twice, mount once. Double-check all measurements to avoid mistakes.
