Exclamation Wall mount problem

Not sure if this is the thread to ask this

I have a 65" Samsung tv that is 63 pounds I got a Sanus mount http://www.futureshop.ca/en-ca/produ...7c310dc332en02 It comes with 3 1/2" lag bolts. I drilled the 4 holes into the centers of 2 studs but hit concrete after 2 1/2 inches. 1/2 dry wall meaning 2" of stud. can I safely us 2 1/2 lag bolts instead?

Help please!

Yes if you're in the middle of the studs; the load is vertical.

I got page not found from your link.

The load is vertical IF this is a flush mount. If it is an articulated mount, the load is mostly torque attempting to pull the screw out of the stud. I would be very careful if this is the case.

A tilting mount is somewhere in between. Probably OK, but make sure the screws are in the stud solidly.

Let me know if the mount is articulated. This keeps coming up and really deserves a diagram.
