    "Need to Find a stud to make it secure. (Plaster walls are not the most ideal material for mounting a television too however it can still be done with care. Never mount an articulating Mount onto plaster walls please it is not safe and if anyone tells you otherwise then they, in all honesty, should not be mounting your TV to a plaster wall or any other wall for that matter)"

    "Yes it is possible using the large spring toggle, I have installed many flat screen TVs using 4 of these per bracket."

    "Yes. It should come with the appropriate fixings for this"

    "Hi, in theory, yes it is possible with the correct fixings but the cons to this is your banking on a piece of 12mm plasterboard to hold up your new £500 + tv. My advice would be to cut out the plasterboard and install a suitable piece of supporting material. It would also aid in getting services to the rear of your tv which when installed will look more aesthetically pleasing

    "Always use a detector before any drilling starts . Also find the stud or studs to attach a piece of wood for extra support."
