How To Hang Projector Screen On Wall

Looking for a quick and easy way to hang your projector screen on the wall? Look no further! This post will show you How To Hang Projector Screen On Wall in just a few simple steps.


A projector screen is a necessity for anyone who wants to enjoy a complete cinematic experience in their own home. Many people think that setting up a projector screen is a complicated and expensive process, but it doesn’t have to be. With a little bit of planning and the right tools, you can easily hang your projector screen on any wall in your home.

There are two main types of projector screens: fixed frame and roll-up. Fixed frame screens are permanently mounted to a wall or ceiling, while roll-up screens can be taken down and stored when not in use. Deciding which type of screen is right for you will depend on the size and layout of your home theater space, as well as your budget.

Fixed frame screens are generally more expensive than roll-up screens, but they provide a sturdier and more professional-looking installation. If you have the budget for it, we recommend investing in a fixed frame screen. They’re also a good choice if you’ll be using your projector screen on a regular basis, as they’re much easier to set up and take down than roll-up screens.

Roll-up screens are more affordable than fixed frame screens and they’re much easier to store when not in use. If you don’t have a dedicated home theater space or you only plan on using your projector screen occasionally, a roll-up screen is the way to go.

What You’ll Need

To properly hang your projector screen, you’ll need a few tools and materials. Most importantly, you’ll need the screen itself and a way to mount it to the wall. There are several ways to do this, but we recommend using a universal projector screen mount. This type of mount will allow you to adjust the screen angle and position once it’s installed, making it easy to get the perfect picture every time.

In addition to the screen and mount, you’ll need:

  • A drill
  • Wall anchors appropriate for your mount (if needed)
  • A level
  • Tape measure
  • Phillips head screwdriver

Step 1: Choose a Suitable Location

Choosing where to hang your projector screen is just as important as choosing the right screen. The height and angle of the screen will affect both the quality of the image and how comfortable it is to watch.

The best place to hang a projector screen is on a wall that is at least 8 feet tall and 10 feet wide. The screen should be hung so that it is at eye level when you are seated. If you are hanging the screen in a room with windows, it is best to choose a wall that does not have any windows behind it.

Step 2: Mark the Screen Position

To find the ideal position for your projector screen, start by measuring the throw distance of your projector (this is the distance from the front of your projector lens to the surface of your screen). Once you know your throw distance, add about 12″ (30 cm) to that number. This will give you the height you need to mount your screen.

Next, use a level to draw a line on the wall that is level with the top of the screen mount. This will be your reference point for marking the rest of the screen’s position.

Using a tape measure, find the center point of your line and mark it on the wall. Then, measure out from that point to find the left and right edges of your screen.mark those points on the wall as well. Finally, use a pencil or chalk to connect all four marks, outlining where your projector screen will be mounted.

Step 3: Drill the Pilot Holes

Now that you have your measurements and you know where you want to drill, it’s time to start drilling the pilot holes. You’ll need a power drill and a 3/8″ drill bit for this step.

Start by drilling a hole at each of the marks you made in Step 2. If you’re not sure how deep to drill the holes, a good rule of thumb is to drill them 1/2″ deeper than the length of the screws you’ll be using.

Once all of the pilot holes are drilled, it’s time to move on to Step 4.

Step 4: Insert the Wall Anchors

Wall mounted projector screens are one of the best ways to achieve an optimal viewing experience. But before you can enjoy your new screen, you need to properly install it. Use the following instructions to properly insert the wall anchors for your projector screen.

  1. Locate the studs in your wall using a stud finder. mark their location with a pencil.
  2. Drill pilot holes at each stud location using a 1/8″ drill bit.
  3. Hammer the wall anchors into the pilot holes until they are flush with the wall surface.
  4. Insert the projector screen mounting brackets into the slots on the back of the projection screen casing.
  5. Use the included screws to secure the brackets to the wall anchors.
  6. Hang your projector screen on the brackets and enjoy!

Step 5: Hang the Projector Screen

Now it’s time to actually hang the projector screen. With most screens, there will be two hangers on the top of the screen, one on each side. Slip these over two nails or screws (that you’ve already placed in the wall), and then gently let go of the screen. It should now be hanging on the wall by itself!

Step 6: Adjust the Projection Screen

Now it’s time to make some final adjustments to the projection screen. If your screen has horizontal adjustment levers, use them to bring the image into focus. You may also need to adjust the vertical settings on your projector screen if the image is not perfectly squared.


You’ve decided you want a projector screen, and you want it to be big. Not only that, but you want it to look good too – after all, you’ll be looking at it every day. But where do you start?

In conclusion, it is fairly easy to hang a projector screen on a wall. By following the proper steps and taking the necessary precautions, anyone can do it. Just be sure to take your time, be careful, and have fun!
