I'm a rookie with any sort of home renovation / improvement.
My wife asked me to try and mount a mirror, its heavy, about 40 pounds.
The mirror has two d-rings on the back and a big warning not to use wires for hanging. The recommendation is "L" hook for wood / struts , or anchors for plaster.
One of the d-rings would be exactly centered over a stud, which i figured is good, except that the AC detector happens to go crazy over this point. I scanned around this point, and about 4 inches above and below, the AC detector beeps / flashes loudly. A little further away the AC light turns on, but doesn't beep. A little more further away, there is no warning.
I figure there is a wire going through the stud? Maybe there is a chance I hit it?
I'm not sure how to get around this problem. I thought maybe move the d-rings up? They are about 12 inches from the top of the frame.
Will appreciate suggestions, thanks
