Metal Studs and 65" (Vizio PQ65-F1). FlipToggles.

I got the large Monoprice 6663 model mount, I will be able to hit 3 studs. The community manager said maintenance said that tv couldn't be wall mounted because the walls aren't strong enough.


I got FlipToggles 1/4"x2 1/2". I plan to use at least 6 (one top and one botton into 3 studs). The TV is around 60lbs and the mount is only tilt (not full motion).


I am hoping my stud finder is accurate enough as a 1/2" hole in a 1.5" stud is not leaving alot of room for error.


My only other experience was wood studs and concrete block.

Mains: Klipsch Quartets with upgraded tweeter/midrange diaphragms and X-overs from Mr. Crites.
Center: Klipsch Academy with upgraded tweeter diaphragms and X-overs from Mr. Crites.
Surrounds: Klipsch RS-25's
Sub: Emotiva Ultra 12
AV: Denon AVR-X4100W, Sony BDP-S6500, Vizio M60-D1 60" LCD

That should hold it. I have metal studs in my theater but not a wall mount. I regret it because the wall rattle and buzz.

I just did two in each stud (my tv is nearly centered between them). It's as solid as anything else I mounted. I tried lifting myself and it's not budging. Now I just wish that monoprice mount was closer to center. I thought I could adjust it up and down, but even at it's lowest it's about 3-4" to "high"...moving my cable box to the side instead of on top my center.
