Bought a huge 50" TV to mount on my bedroom wall ready for my ps4.

Problem is my wall is just that plaster stuff! It wont hold.

Any DIY savvy ppl got any tips on getting it stably on the wall? Do i just drill deeper? Implant some sort of structure into the wall for reinforcement? Buy a stand.....cry? :(



You need to find a stud. Buy a stud finder and you can wall mount the tv.

This and also there is such a thing as dry wall screws if you cannot find or do not have a stud. BUT DO CHECK THE WEIGHT THRESHOLD, or bye bye new TV.

Dry wall screws are not magical screws that will hold objects on drywall. in fact they are actually screws that hold Drywall on the wall.

That being said, ALL WALLS have suds in them as stated previously, unless its cinder block, you just have to figure out what spacing they are at.

@cyl26

Get a mount that you can bolt into your wall beam supports. You should have studs every 3 feet or so that you can screw into.

^this^

What are you talking about TC? Like 90% of walls are drywall... You have to screw the mount into the studs. You'll need a stud finder, they're less than $10. I'm definitely no carpenter, but I figured it out by myself. My 55" Samsung has been there for 4 years with no problems. Just MAKE SURE that the screws/bolts are going into the center of the studs...

You need to call Geek Squad. You're clearly unqualified to take this on.

The SNAPTOGGLE

you can get them at home depot or lowes. Each one can hold about 25-40 pounds depending on how much your tv weighs and how many holes you're willing to drill.

I worked for a company that made anchors, and our #1 customers were TV installations.


I bet as soon as you read the OP, you thought to yourself; "Finally, my time to shine" XD!!

He is right though people.

I hung a old (re: heavy) Plasma in my bedroom with a similar product - it works like a charm!

Doesn't it come with a stand?

Personally, I don't care for that high wall look unless you are literally fifty feet away.
