I am trying to remove the bedroom TV and I can't get the nuts to break loose from the strap. I have read other posts on this forum about taking out the Tvs but no mention about breaking the nuts loose. The nut is free on the stud but the strap wants to twist. I tried to hold the strap with a pliers but that did not help.

Has anyone else had a problem breaking the nut loose from the strap? It is like there is glue or paint under the nut. Any advice would be appreciated.

Don

Don, would access allow you to use a "wrench" you would make from a piece of hardwood, say 1/2" X 1"X whatever long works for you. With a very snug slot, strap thickness, cut into its end face, slippihg this slot over the strap should support it better than pliers, and give you a good amount of leverage. If the nut looks to be corroded, some "knock r loose", or equivelant should help. Most of that stuff stinks, so just a little, it is your bedroom, and MaMa ain't gonna like it, if it smells like a machine shop... Re reading your post, I'm not entirely clear about what you are trying to do.Maybe this isn' the solution to your problem.. ...rgr..

Don - any chance of cutting the strap with tin snips or even a hacksaw?

Thanks rgrstndgby & John for your replies. I finally got it this afternoon. I had to get 2 more hands and a HD needle nose pliers and a long 3/8 extension. I went down along side the TV from the top. Apparently this was screwed down with a power driver that created some heat between the strap and nuts on both sides. They appeared to be slightly welded together. Even after I removed the TV I had a devil of a time getting the nut loose from the bracket on the remaining side.
