You then lift the TV to remind you of its weight and your heart sinks a bit. “I wonder what TV bracket I should use for dry wall?”

Mounting a TV is something you can do yourself if you are fairly confident with your DIY skills. The best solution with making sure that the bracket is mounted safely on dry wall is to find the studs in the wall. Securing the bracket into the studs will ensure that they can safely support most TVs.

However, it is not always the case that you can find or use the studs in the wall ,especially if you want the TV in a particular position. In this scenario, you can safely rely on spring toggles. These work great on dry wall/plasterboard to secure brackets in circumstances where the studs are not useable.
