If you could see the stud, and centered a couple big lag bolts into it, I feel like it would be plenty strong enough. However, making sure it's in the middle would be tricky through drywall.

2 - 3/8" lag bolts with this style mount is plenty to support a 55".. nothing to worry about unless you really don't know what your doing. Once mount is installed- grab it with your hands and give it some solid down force tugs. If the wall mount is sturdy and good the TV will certainly last on there.

Finding the middle of the stud isnt that hard. Once the stud is located, tap a small finishing nail to find the edges. Studs are typically 1.5” wide, so install the lag bolt 3/4” from th edge. I usually pre-drill the hole to avoid cracking the stud and losing all strength. And make sure you drill/bolt straight !


Edit : correcting my drunk punctuation ?

the finishing nail trick is a good advice and a nice physical way to check the studs. ill keep that in mind

Just to add to this, extend the mount before putting pressure on it, as 77lbs against the wall is much less force than 77lbs on the end of a 16" lever.

Is the brand good? 8 reviews have 5/5
Stay strong, situation always looks harder and that it will never end when you are in the middle of it, but remember past experiences, everything has an ending.

use a studfinder, also if you feel uncomfortable mounting a TV into a 1" stud you should be really uncomfortable that the 1" stud is not only holding up your wall but also your house. You will be fine mounting into studs. My TV is 70" and I have one of these mounts, it's perfect

edit: not the specific mount but the one for 70" TV's

I bought this last week actually. It feels okay but my TV is only 19 lbs and there seems to be a bit of play even after tightening things. I'm not sure how well it would handle anything heavier.

Only issues I ran into were the VESA mounting screws provided weren't the correct ones for my TV and the bolts to screw into the wall are a bit cheap and the head started stripping when I was trying to drill them in and I had to finish them with a wrench.

Other than that it was fairly quick and painless setup.

Agree, I have this mount as well with a 43" mounted to it. I hate touching the TV because any small movement and it takes me forever to get it back to where I like to keep the TV for everyday use. Great price though and I can confirm it is very sturdy. After installing with 2-3/8" lags, I hung off the mount (195lbs) with no movement.

Unless you suck at centering your holes in the middle of the stud and/or torque it like a jack and strip the threads you will never have any issue with a single stud

I Agree totally. I've installed at least a dozen single stud mounts. No issues what so ever. I have a high end stud finder and we'll worth the money. The finish nail trick works well too.
My issues start on the big mounts and 24 inch stud centers. But I hit one stud and use the 200lbs toggle straps. Mounts for 24 inch stud spacing are limited in choice.

I placed an order yesterday and had a hard time to find a few extra items I didn't really need in order to get free shipping..... would have I known this I could have easily waited an extra day!

Lately I've shopped there way too many times already (from TV mounts, to cables, speaker cable, accessories). But so far I'm always satisfied and it's much easier to order from them instead of any other US-only website.

Thanks. Grabbed one for the 37". Interestingly enough, it's the same weight as my 65". Times have changed.
