Thanks Kaboom for the measurements!
I'm going to make a stand like this.

Wondering how the TV mounts are holding up in the bedroom, I am wanting to mount mine on the wall but curious about how they are holding up, did you put screws in the bracket where it did not hit the stud also, XLR HFS 27, 2012. Appreciate any feedback.

Mine and Kabooms are mounted in the metal stud, solid as a rock. Just follow the measurements and directions I posted earlier in this thread.

Mine is holding up just fine and is screwed into the studs only.

Thanks to 10x for the measurements and idea of using the straight pin to find the studs.

I am just getting ready to put a tv mount in the living room, above the stereo. My question is the length of screws. I have some lag bolts that say they are 1.5"... when inserted through the mounting bracket, they stick out appr 1 1/8"... is this too long? Kind of just eyeballing the wall thickness. I might add a washer on the mount side, to give me about 1" of screw going in to the wall.

Or should I get a shorter lag bolt/screw... they had 1" at the hardware store, But that wouldn't leave much biting into the wall. Maybe I need to try a different hardware store, find a 1 1/4".

Thoughts anyone?

Can you drill a pilot hole and put a pick or paperclip in too see how thick your wall is?

Since you were kind enough to offer advice on one of my posts, I will gladly return the favor. I mounted a 40" above the entertainment cabinet on the factory reinforced (marked) area (yes it fills the available area) and a 29" in the garage where the power & antenna are prewired. I looked at the extending brackets, but opted for the low profile tilt version that I could lock down once in position. Both the bracket and TV's are tightened down good so I never take them down.

I tried using a stud finder, but pressing on the walls was a better indicator of where it is solid. For the garage TV, I put two screws clean through the wall and into the bathroom medicine cabinet to make that bracket solid. I read on another post to push pillows between you slide wall and the big TV in the living area while travelling - works like a charm. I've had it out twice since installing and have had no issues.
