1 question already asked
Hi, you can't use these to mount to the back of the TV. They are meant to be used to attached the mount to the (steel studed) wall. The strips are needed to distribute the weight of the tv across the chassis. Hope this helps. I would think you either need to contact the manufacturer to buy the strips separately or look into wall mounting the TV. Hope this helps. [ Kurt Nov 30, 2014 ]
