Step-by-Step Guide to Mounting Your Soundbar Outdoors

Step 1: Choose the Right Location

The first step in mounting your soundbar is selecting the ideal location. Consider the following:

  • Proximity to the TV: Ensure the soundbar is close enough to the TV for optimal audio synchronization and ease of connection.
  • Height: Mount the soundbar at ear level when seated for the best audio experience. This typically means placing it slightly below the TV.
  • Accessibility: Make sure the location allows easy access to the soundbar for any adjustments or maintenance.

Step 2: Prepare the Post

Identify the post or pillar where you will mount the shelf. The ZeboZap shelf is compatible with various shapes and sizes, so make sure the post fits within the 3-inch to 16-inch diameter range.

  • Clean the Surface: Wipe down the area where the shelf will be mounted to ensure a secure attachment.
  • Measure and Mark: Use a measuring tape to determine the exact height at which you want to mount the shelf. Mark this spot with a pencil or tape.

Step 3: Attach the Straps and Buckle

The ZeboZap shelf comes with heavy-duty straps and a stainless steel buckle that secure it to the post.

  • Wrap the Straps: Position the shelf against the post and wrap the straps around it. Ensure the straps are evenly aligned and not twisted.
  • Thread the Buckle: Insert the strap ends into the buckle and pull them through to tighten. The buckle mechanism allows you to adjust the tension easily.
  • Tighten Securely: Pull the straps tight until the shelf is firmly attached to the post. It should not wobble or move when you press on it.

Step 4: Level the Shelf

To ensure your soundbar sits correctly, use a level to check that the shelf is horizontal. This step is optional but highly recommended for a professional-looking installation.

  • Adjust as Needed: If the shelf is not level, adjust the straps accordingly until it is perfectly horizontal.

Step 5: Place the Soundbar

With the shelf securely mounted, you can now place your soundbar on it.

  • Position the Soundbar: Center the soundbar on the shelf, ensuring it is stable and won’t tip over.
  • Secure the Soundbar (Optional): If your soundbar has mounting holes or brackets, you can use additional straps or fasteners to secure it to the shelf for added stability.

Step 6: Connect the Soundbar

Finally, connect the soundbar to your outdoor TV or audio source.

  • Power Supply: Ensure the soundbar is connected to a power source. If you are using an extension cord, make sure it is rated for outdoor use.
  • Audio Connection: Use the appropriate cables to connect the soundbar to your TV. HDMI ARC, optical audio, or Bluetooth are common connection methods.

Maintenance Tips


To keep your soundbar and ZeboZap shelf in top condition, follow these maintenance tips:

  • Regular Inspections: Periodically check the straps and buckle for any signs of wear or damage. Replace them if necessary.
  • Clean the Shelf: Wipe down the shelf and soundbar with a damp cloth to remove dust and debris.
  • Protect from Elements: While the shelf is designed for outdoor use, consider covering your soundbar during severe weather conditions to prolong its lifespan.
