Default Anyone install a CRT TV wall swivel mount?

I'm helping someone install a wall-mounted CRT TV swivel tomorrow, and I want to be sure on what type of bolts are typically used to fasten the swivel to the stud in the wall. I don't want the thing falling on them... and I don't think the CRTs are too big. I'm thinking they will be supporting about 40 lbs with the weight of the mount included.

She said the mount comes with installation accessories and some screws... but she didn't make it too clear. SO, if anyone has ever done it, what type of bolts did you use? Any tricks? Thanks.

I'd use the biggest lag bolts you can fit through the bracket, just make sure you find a stud.

Cool... that was the plans. I'll see what the kit comes with. If I don't think the supplied bolts are good enough, I'll make a run to Lowes and get the thickest bolt I could use with that kit along with some washers.

Thanks!

I installed a setup with a friend and the kits usually come with some beefy screws but yeah make sure you find a good stud and screw dead center. At least you are not hanging a Plasma TV those things are Mad heavy.

for the bolts the you cant hit a stud, you can use toggle bolts. those will help distribute the weight over sheet rock.
