Regardless of what your friends and family might say, if you think you need a 65 inch television to re-watch Downton Abbey for the third time, then by golly, that’s what you need. 

When you stroll home cradling all of that glorious screen real estate in your arms, don’t let your victory be muddied by any concerns about what kind of TV mount a 65 inch behemoth such as yours might require. Instead, we’ve done all of the homework for you. In our 65 inch TV wall mount guide, we tell you everything you need to know, so you can skip the hassle and get watchin’. 

What Kind of TV Mount 65 Inch TVs Require – And What You Need to Know About Your Walls

To break it down, the main thing you’re looking for is a mount that fits the back of your TV. It should also be strong enough to support your TV’s weight. As long as these two criteria are met, you don’t really need to worry about much else. 

Fortunately, the Video Electronics Standards Association simplified things by applying a standard bracket configuration for the backs of televisions. 

Virtually all TVs are designed with back panels that follow this standard, and almost all wall mounts comply as well. This makes it a lot simpler to match up a TV with the right wall mount. Not all TVs have the exact same VESA size, but they’ve essentially narrowed it down to Big, Medium, or Small. 

To find out if a bracket will fit your TV:

  1. Look in your television’s product manual or on the box to see the VESA bracket size
  2. Check the wall mount to see if it matches the TV bracket size
  3. If you can’t find the VESA size in your TV’s product information, simply measure the distance between the bolt holes on the back of your TV, both across as well as up and down. Common VESA sizes are 200 millimeters by 200 millimeters, 400 x 400, and 600 x 600
  4. Also, check the weight of your TV in the product manual or on the box
  5. See how much weight the bracket is advertised as being able to support

You will also want to make sure your wall can support the weight of your TV:

  • For 65 inch televisions mounted on drywall, we recommend only mounting the bracket to the studs inside the wall
  • While companies do advertise plastic wall anchors that can help drywall hold significantly more weight than a standard bolt, we do not recommend using these for the kind of TV mount 65 inch televisions would require – as a 65 inch TV is most likely much heavier than even these wall anchors can handle
