Hey /diy/, I own Samsung T240 which only has a single legit way to mount it on a wall/bracket, is to buy a discontinued mounting stand (as on pic). I have an idea to drill the back case and screw it onto a normal mounting bracket, however I am afraid that the plastic might not manage to hold the weight of the monitor or that the case could open. Can I reinforce the case without permanently sealing it to the monitor?

This appears to be a U shaped piece of steel, with the only critical dimensions being the width of the tab in the front and thickness of the steel. You can both measurements from the corresponding slot on the back of the TV. Have you considered fabricating one?

In theory I could modify the stand that I already have, however I don't have the means to make it possible. I would need something that doesn't require fabricating steel component.

You're prolly right. Most sets have a dedicated metal plate as part of the chassis that the stand screws into. You can screw anything to the back plastic of it however, as long as you use enough screws to distribute the weight evenly, and most crucially, make sure they are not so long as to contact any of the displays internals.

I would be thinking a chunk of timber across the back of the display would be a good start, with a piece of similar length attached (FIRMLY) to the wall. Screw some wood screws into the bottom edge of the timber so their heads protrude a 10mm or so, then drill corresponding holes into the wood on the wall, the idea is the screws engage into the holes, hooking the whole thing on.

really dude, i'd rather modify the stand, like weld your pic to a stand you have and mount it, then fucking up your tv.
There's a lot of shit that can go wrong, and even if it doesn't, you can't sell that tv later on and i'm sure you're going to loose your guarantee

Let me say it a different way. Instead of drilling holes in the back of your tv, I'd be happy to make you a fixed non-pivoting bracket for the cost of mats and shipping.

just take the stand you DO have and epoxy those motherfuckers together for eternity

Can't you just drill holes in another mount to match the holes in TV? Would save you a lot of hassle, finding the right screws that fit the tv might be hard though
