Wall mounting is becoming increasingly popular in the gaming world, and the team at HumanCentric has developed options for just about every piece of the perfect gaming setup. From monitors to consoles, if you need to save space in your gaming area, HumanCentric is the way to go.
Just how easy is it to mount your equipment? Thanks to HumanCentric, we were able to mount our Playstation with just six screws. We break it down in the steps below.
How to mount your Playstation 4 Pro with HumanCentric
Step 1: Mark your spot!
The hardest part of setting up the HumanCentric PS4 Pro mount is choosing where you are going to put everything. Once you have taken the crucial step and decided on the perfect position, mark where you want the screws to go into the wall. We did this by holding the mount in position with one hand and poking a hole in the wall with a screwdriver. This worked for us as it was drywall. You may need a drill to do this step if you have walls made out of a stronger material such as brick. It’s also important to make sure the mount is level, otherwise your whole set-up could be off in the first step.
Step 2: Screw it in
HumanCentric makes keeping your mount on the wall super easy. In your package, you will have both screws and plastic anchors to hold the screws in place. If you paid close attention in the previous step, your mount will be straight. If not, you can make slight adjustments before tightening your screws.
Step 3: Put your console into place
This is where we learned our most valuable lesson. The initial position looked fantastic; however, you need to ensure you leave enough space to slide the PlayStation in, as you will see in the next step. If you do go too close, simply remove the controller mounts. You will need to put them back into place after your console is locked and loaded.
Step 4: Mount the controllers
Follow the same steps for the controller mounts as you did the Playstation mount, HumanCentric provides enough screws to make it happen. If you do want to have your controllers this close to your PlayStation, make sure you slide your console in first.
Step 5: Secure the package!
This was something I have always been worried about with wall mounts. What if it tilts and falls out of place? For peace of mind, HumanCentric has made securing your console as easy as a single screw and washer. As above, it screws into a small additional flap and makes sure your console sits in nice and snug.
Step 6: Marvel in all of your console glory
This is certainly our favorite step. Your console is now Instagram ready and needs to be shared with all of your community. Tell everyone your setup is now complete with the help of HumanCentric, make sure you tag them in your posts so they can share your picture-perfect set up with the world.
Bonus step: Up your social game
Having an amazing looking setup is great. Sharing an unconstructed image of the process you are about to go to can look just as good. Make sure you lay it all out before you get started and get the perfect snap. This step will also help you ensure you have all of the pieces you need to put the mount together.
Six screws. Six screws were all it took to get this mount into place. The only tools we needed were a screwdriver and a level. Even the leveling tool is optional if you have a good enough eye. Simple as that and definitely worth the short amount of time it took for the instant boost to your setups aesthetic.
