TV Mounting Question


Hello everyone!

I’m currently in the process of mounting my flat screen TV on my bedroom wall. However, i’m in a bit of a pickle, so I figured some advice from the community would be helpful!

I’d like to mount my TV near my closet, however the stud closest to the closet is too close and would make the TV either butt the wall or the closet door, which isn’t good! Now, the next furthest stud out is actually too far forward, as the room is really small.

So my idea was to somehow meet the two studs inbetween some how. Is it possible to nail wood between those two studs, almost like a fire block and use that for the wall mount support? Would that hold up?

The wall mount only requires a screw up top, and a screw down bottom. It’s a single plate that goes vertical. It’s full motion, but not one of those sliding mounts, so I cant use those special screws that help hold TV’s when they can’t meet both studs.

If you guys think that’ll support, let me know! If you have other suggestions, also let me know!

Below is an image so you can also understand my explanation better..

Thank you!
Dylan

If you open the wall it is normal to put backing between the studs next the drywall.

Re: TV Mounting Question


Nice explanation.



2x4"s are inexpensive so I would double it and for ease of construction add a block on each stud for the new double 2x4s to rest on top of.

Hi guys!

I appreciate the feed back and link for more visual support.

Now, I will need to wire past the support plank for a recessed plug/cable box i’m installing. This should not be a problem either I hope? Not breaking some form of unknown code by making this? Would i just wire above the 2x4 or do you think there will still be room to run it right behind the 2x4? 🙂

Thanks,
Dylan

Put your blocking on edge like the picture and there is plenty of room behind it for cables.
