Trying to hang up my mount and cannot find a stud on the wall I had cleared off to put him on! Shouldn't there be one somewhat in line with the electrical outlet? I'm going nuts! I've nailed 4 holes! I'm tapping around and think it can hear/feel one, but can't get it!!! I know, I need a studfinder, but my wife isn't here right now... bolt

But seriously... It's frustrating.

Every time I walk by a stud finder it starts beeping. Weird.

take the cover plate off the outlet and you should be able to see which side of the electrical bos the stud is on.

anchor will work fine but make sure you get a good hold. stud is usually on the left side of the outlet. then 16" to the next one.....just get a dang stud finder (not your wife they are unreliable bolt).

Bingo. Then get a peice of string and create a plumb line and run it down the side of the electrical plate....

And I would use a screw.



To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Take a clear glass, drinking glass hold it to the wall, then put your ear to the glass, with the other hand tap lightly on the drywall until you hear the noise change from a boom- boom sound to just a dull thump.But before you start, be sure to set up a video camera, we'll drive 'em wild over at youtube.
