how to install a tv on a lath and plaster wall? Answered

I was wanting to install my tv on my wall but i have a lath and plaster wall so i need to know the best way since it is a plasma and is quite heavy



Don't hang it on the plaster. Find one of the studs -- the wall's actual structural members, supporting the lath -- and make sure your mounting screws go into that.

If the studs don't line up with the holes on your mounting bracket (unlikely), you can bolt the bracket to a pieces of >3/4" plywood, then screw the plywood to the wall IN THE STUDS.
