My own home need to install a Samsung no gap wall mount for a new 65" TV.

Bracket only for 16 OC. Instructions say as long as one end hits a stud you can use wall anchors for the other end.

Is it just me. I really dont trust the wall anchors in a case like this.

Thinking maybe worth it to cut open wall and add a 2 x 4 where I need it.

Would cut a opening about 12" x 16" in drywall. Would not have the time for mud to dry and paint. So would not finish the patch. But would be hidden behind TV.

Opinions ?
Thanks

I’ve just finished building a new interior wall for a TV. No, I wouldn’t use drywall anchors to support one end of a TV mount. Why don’t you look at another manufacturer? Sanus makes a low profile wall mount that is wide enough to always hit two studs at 16” OC.

Have you thought through and solved the upcoming problem of how the power and data cables will connect to their wall connections with that small space available with a low profile mount? As you know the idea of a low profile mount is to get the TV as close to the wall as possible.

Low profile would not work for this TV. Looking for no gap. Is a Samsung Frame TV. Also have to use the dedicated mount. Wiring is no problem. Since only one very thin cable actually goes to the TV. With Samsung one connect.

You could install a piece of 1/2" plywood longer than the bracket to accommodate 16" centers, paint it and install your mount on the plywood.
Not a bad idea. And use a grab bar type toggle. But if I have to cut out drywall I just as well install a 2 x 6 going from stud to stud.

I’m in the market for a new TV, so this Samsung “Frame” TV has some interesting features that I’d like to look into, like “Art Mode”. I looked at the specs for the QN65LS03RAFXZC 65”. It shows that in addition to the included “No Gap Wall Mount” the TV has standard 400X400 VESA mounting support positions, so a non-Samsung mount can be used, at least with this model.

I did miss that.
Still I will go with the samsung mount. Dont want it to stick out from the wall more than my 10 year old TV.
Which only sticks out from the wall a total of 2". Which is 1" for the current low profile mount and 1" for the TV.

This new TV is thicker so with the no gap mount the total will work out the same.

More I think on it. Easy to just cut open wall and add support. And patch will always be hidden behind a TV.
Just bothers me a little since I will know there is a unfinished patch behind.
Years from now when room needs painting. May deal with the patch then.
