We're looking into mounting our current TV on the wall in the bedroom, however we've hit a minor snag, it appears there's no stud in the area where the TV would be mounted.
I've searched the wall using the 'magnet trick' and positioned the TV where we'd like it to go (opposite the bed) and it falls exactly between the edge of the wall (metal stud) and the wooden stud which is half way down the wall.
The mount that I'm looking at (and that's pictured) includes two snap toggle bolts, and I've also looked into and found some additional spring toggles. The TV itself is quite light weighing only 11.0 lb or 5 kg.
Anyway, what all the preamble boils down to is, do you think it'll be safe to mount the TV directly to the dry wall using a combination of Spring Toggles and Snap Toggles and not mounting it to a stud? If so, do you have any tips or hints on how to do it safely? If not, do you have any other suggestions?
