I have the 82”. The wall mount is made up of 2 “wall mounts”. One for the left side and one for the right.
The wall mount has several holes. I put 6 screws in each of the two mounts. 2 in the center, 2 to the left of center, and 2 to the right of center.
When I hung mine the left one lined up perfectly with my studs so that all 6 screws went into studs. The right mount, only 2 screws lined up, I used toggle bolts for the other 4 screws.
The mounts are super secure this way.
Two words of advice, don’t bother with the anchors that come with the tv, they don’t stay in place and push through the wall, I tried these before deciding to go with the toggle bolts. Also, be careful with the screws that come with the tv will going into studs. One of mine stripped. Be sure to use an impact drill!
Hope this helps. Best of luck.
