I'd like to mount a TV in the same spot as the condo owner previously mounted theirs.
There are 4 existing holes that use Toggler-brand SnapToggle toggle bolts, but they do not align with my mounting hardware so I only used these for positional reference and decided to mount a little bit higher.
I located the studs to the left and right, then drilled into the center of the rightmost one.
About 3/4" into the wall, I hit metal. I've read from other posts that this could be protection plate, but I don't know; I don't imagine there is a wire running there. I've also read it could be a "resilient channel" for sound isolation?
Should I just try drilling above or below my initial point? Or is there an obvious reason why the owner decided to just attach to the drywall only instead of the studs?
