Default Mount -- Finally Up on the Wall

Hello,

I bought a Monoprise 3725 mount for my Panasonic TCP50S1. Like many others, I realized that I have non-standard stud spacing in my apartment, given that my studs are 24" apart.

The solution: I got a 3/4" - 2 X 3 feet birchwood and mounted the wall bracket on it using SIX 5/16 x 2.5" bolts with lock nuts. I hammered the bolts from the outside of the wood and secured it with lock nut towards the arms.

And then I attached/screwed the 2x3 birchwood on the two studs with SIX 5/16 x 3" lag screws: 3 onto each stud.

My two kids helped with the install. Before putting on the TV, my son - who is about 100Ibs - was able to do a few chin-ups on the mount. I then asked a neighbor to help me put the TV up.

So far, it has held up fine. Thanks very much for all the informative site. A few pictures are below.

cheers, Punda

Outstanding. FYI if you move your L and R front speakers out from your center channel your sound will improve immensely. Just a matter of a few feet will make a tremendous difference.
