The Right Hardware

Wood stud construction

    * 2 x 4 minimum (not 4 x 2)

    * Use metal stud togglers or wall plate for anchorage

Togglers acceptable for lighter installations, flat and tilt mounts
Wall plates may be required for heavier installation, pivot and articulating mounts
Wood stud blocking recommended in some installations
Follow mount manufacturers' recommendations


    * 2000 psi minimum concrete
    * Use Alligator® anchor or concrete expansion
    * A tight, clean drilled hole is mandatory to avoid pullout
    * Fasten using slow setting on drill, or use screw driver
    * Cinder block
    * 1-3/8" minimum web structural cinder block, meeting ASTM C-90 specs
    * Use Alligator® anchor or concrete expansion
    * Stay away from mortar joints
    * Keep at least 1" from edges
    * Do not use hammer drill to avoid blowout inside of block


    * Test brick integrity first!
