We're ready to put the next two on the wall. It's 1/4 red oak over sheet rock, and won't hit a stud. In the past, I've used a toggle bolt with a nut on the shaft, leaving the screw extended into the back of the plywood on the shoulder mount.

I've seen a couple other ways, just hate to bore a big old hole in the wall for that toggle into nice oak paneling...

What are your thoughts? Is there something newer and innovative?

How far from the stud is the mount going to be? I am going to buy a cheaper single arm pivoting flat screen or TV wall mount to mount a couple on this year in holes or close to corners. That way they will be away from the wall and then I can turn/pivot them how I want them. Other thing would be to take a thin slab or piece of milled mesquite or oak or etc type would to span from stud to stud(s) to mount your mounts to. You could hang photos or whatever in between the mounts on the wood.

I normally just take a 3” long woodscrew and go into the Sheetrock.

Have not had an issue yet knock on wood.

Hit a stud or be prepared for a fall.

Screw in a stud or heavy duty sheetrock anchors.

might look into the Hillman Monkey Hook Picture Hangers ... depending on the weight of the mount.

Get the nylon sheet rocks anchors. I've had much better luck with those over the lead/metal variety.

Stick with the studs or have 3/4 plywood installed under the Sheetrock. Not worth the risk.

My wife has a large mirror (approx. 4'x4') weight 50-60 lbs my guess. we used 2 about 10" apart of the above to hang it into sheetrock. Our contractor suggested using them.

I've got 10 or more whitetails in my trophy room that are hung on the nylon sheetrock hangers. None of them have ever fallen. But a whitetail wall pedestal is about all the weight they will handle.
